Ford SUV

Driving in and out of Trail, BC from places like Nelson, Grand Forks, and Creston can be stressful, so you need a vehicle that you can rely on and that’s fun to drive. A Ford SUV from AM Ford is a great choice for your commute because the lineup of vehicles offers a wide variety of options and features to choose from.

Diverse Lineup of SUVs

The Ford SUV lineup is incredibly versatile, offering eight attractive models that come in various sizes to meet the varying needs of commuters. The EcoSport, Escape, and Bronco Sport are perfect for zipping around the streets of Trail thanks to their smaller sizing and peppy engines. Mid-range models include the Edge, Mustang Mach-E electric SUV, and the new Bronco, with its unique design and off-road-specific capabilities. If you need something that will fit the whole family on the weekend and all of your gear, go with the Explorer or Expedition. These large, iconic Ford SUVs have plenty of space to store a wide range of items and can be adjusted to suit your needs thanks to split-folding and Tip-and-Slide seating.

Efficient & Eco-Friendly

One of the best reasons to choose a Ford SUV is the fact that Ford offers a handful of hybrid models as well as an all-electric SUV — helping you to save money when you’re going to and from Trail. The Escape Hybrid and Escape Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) models are ideal for young couples or small families. This compact crossover SUV provides as low as 5.4 L/100 km in the city with the Hybrid model and an outstanding 2.2 L/100 km in the city for the PHEV.[1] The Ford Explorer is a bit larger than the Escape and can be equipped with an efficient 3.3-litre hybrid engine that offers as low as 8.6 L/100 km in the city.[1] But for the most stylish and eco-friendly vehicle in the Ford lineup, go with the all-electric Mustang Mach-E. This alluring EV has an estimated range of 418 km and can go from zero to 100 kph in just 3.7 seconds.[2] On top of that, the Mustang Mach-E offers DC fast charging that can take the SUV up to 80% charged in only 45 minutes.[3]

Standard Safety Systems

Life can get pretty hectic, and knowing that you have a suite of advanced safety systems to assist you on your commute provides some much needed peace of mind. Ford provides a long list of smart features on its SUVs to make every journey safer. For example, the stylish Ford Edge can be equipped with Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, a must for traffic jams and commuting. The SUV’s sensors will detect a possible collision with a car or a pedestrian in front of you and will alert you with lights and sounds. If you’re not able to take corrective action quick enough, the brakes will automatically apply. As you move through the many trims of each Ford SUV, you’ll find even more helpful standard and available safety features from the Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite, like BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, Reverse Brake Assist, and a Lane-Keeping System.

Advanced Infotainment Technology

When you’re on the go, you want to stay connected to the world around you. Whether you need to know the upcoming weather or you want to listen to your favourite podcast on the way to work, a Ford SUV can provide that for you. The latest Ford SYNC® infotainment system has been upgraded to be twice as fast as the previous iteration and more intelligent. Cloud connectivity is a breeze with this system thanks to optional FordPass Connect™ with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot. If you’re headed somewhere new, the navigation system is constantly updated with the most recent traffic information so you can get from Point A to Point B with ease. With SYNC® 4, wireless smartphone compatibility is standard, meaning you can use Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ to see your top apps on the touch screen without worrying about plugs and cords.
