The new 2011 Ford F-150 is brought to you by Capital Ford, your Regina Ford Dealer. Not only with four new engines but also the F-150 rules the class in power and fuel economy. Now, the F-150 has an engine for everybody.
Built for your tough jobs our new 5.0L V8 is big on performance and fuel economy. You must be wondering like many others, “How did Ford do that?” and “What makes Ford so different?”
It all started with Ford engineering and proven technologies. Then, these engines saw thousands of hours of harsh real-world and laboratory testing. Ford engineers worked harder and longer to deliver the best line up of F-150 engines-period. This is the new F-150, the future of all trucks!
****Guest Post By Saskatchewan Safety Counsil and Lee Carlson****
The cold winter months can cause uncertainty on our roads. In Saskatchewan, icy road conditions are an ongoing concern for residents during the winter months and occasionally force us to alter our driving plans. When travelling over the winter months, the Saskatchewan Safety Council would like to remind drivers to take caution when driving from destination to destination.
Everyone should take the time to phone family, friends or relatives before heading out and provide them with your driving route, as well as your estimated time of arrival. It’s very important to check weather and road conditions before heading out onto the road and always travel at a speed that is appropriate for the weather and road conditions.
Every vehicle should have a well equipped emergency kit, which includes the following items:
• Extra warm clothing for every person in the vehicle including jackets, mitts and toques (be sure to store these items in the vehicle with you and never in your trunk)
• Snow brush/ice scraper
• Sand or other traction aid
• Tow rope or chain
• Booster cables
• Warning lights
• Gas line antifreeze
• Flashlight and batteries
• First aid kit
• Fire extinguisher
• Small tool kit
• Candle and small tin can
• Non-perishable foods (granola bars, chocolate, soup, juice, bottled water)
Preparing yourself and your vehicle ahead of time can save your life if you are ever in an emergency!

Although their numbers are diminishing daily, there are still customers that don’t “believe in nitrogen” or think of it as “snake oil.” While tons of pages of evidence against this exist, most non-believers can “convert” themselves if they simply consider the following: Read the rest of this entry “
If you are asking yourself “Why should I buy a Ford Fusion?” you aren’t phrasing the question properly. The question should be “Why wouldn’t I want to buy a Ford Fusion?”, and if you want to go a little further, you might to ask “Why wouldn’t I want to buy a Ford Fusion from Capital Ford Lincoln?”
Read on to find out all the reasons why you should buy Ford Fusion and more!

Walk into Capital Ford Lincoln these days and you will see a lot of our employees smiling. They should be! Ford Canada says this past month was the company’s best monthly performance in a decade as sales were up by 15.7 percent. This likely makes Ford the top-selling automaker in the country for June. If this indeed proves to be the case, Ford will have led the market for two consecutive quarters for the first time in over 50 years.
Over 31 and a half thousand vehicles were sold across Canada in June (many of those coming out of the Capital Ford Lincoln lot) with car sales up by 23 percent and truck sales up by 13 percent. See what the CEO had to say about this awesome fact by reading on.

Drive around and it won’t be too long until you see someone driving a Ford F-150. Who’s kidding who, its a very popular truck and for good reason. However, even we didn’t know this.
Get in on the popularity. We have many new and used F150′s on the lot. C’mon down here and put yourself behind the wheel to find out for yourself why the F-150 is so popular.
So you’ve heard the buzz, felt the vibe and perhaps you even received a jolt of the electrifying energy that Ford is bringing to the table with the all new 2011 Fiesta.
You might even be sitting there with those little thought bubbles floating above your head with images of what exterior colour you would choose, the style of interior trim and how good you would look zipping around town in one of those sick little rides. You know you want to keep reading to learn more and see the pictures.

Just about everyone has a smartphone these days. Ford has developed a very cool product named “SYNC” which allows you to do many things while behind the wheel of your Ford product. I could explain it, but I’m going to let someone higher up. He’s not big on the excitement scale, but he gets the message across.
What do you think? You could never imagine that 15-20 years ago could you? SYNC is in the vast majority of all Ford products including that sharp 2011 Ford Fiesta that you saw in the video.
Who’s kidding who. We are all looking for ways to save money when we see gas prices sitting at above one dollar a litre. Ford Canada is doing what it can to help Canadians out. This story was in the Winnipeg Free Press over the weekend.
Fuel efficiency may not be top of mind with some Canadian drivers these days — with trucks once again outselling cars — but it is with Ford Motor Company officials.
The North American automaker has been on a bit of tear lately, introducing a whack of new models — eight this year alone — that are either the most fuel-efficient in their class, or on par with the most miserly.
Ford Canada president and CEO David Mondragon said in Winnipeg Friday gas prices are bound to rise again — he predicts oil will be back above $100 a barrel by 2012 or 2013. And when they do, demand for fuel-efficient cars and trucks will rise along with it.
That’s why Ford has invested so heavily over the last three years in developing smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles like the ones it has been producing for years for the fuel-conscious European and Asian markets. Its goal is to be a fuel-economy leader in every segment in which it competes.
The latest addition to its revamped lineup of North American fuel-sippers is the new Fiesta subcompact, which is being introduced to the Canadian market this month. It boasts a class-leading rating of 4.9 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway, and 6.8 litres in the city.
Another is the Transit Connect compact van, which has been a big seller for years overseas, and is now available in North America.
Mondragon said Canada Post is buying 1,175 of the four-cylinder vans this year as it begins to replace its aging national fleet of cargo vans. Canada Post officials have said they chose the Transit Connect because it’s more fuel-efficient — 9.5 litres per 100 kilometres in the city and 7.9 on the highway — and more environmentally friendly.
Mondragon was in Winnipeg to attend the grand opening of Canada Post’s $100-million mail-sorting plant, which will be getting some of the new vans.
He said car sales have taken a back seat to truck sales this year in Canada, with 53 per cent of the vehicles sold being trucks, and 47 per cent cars. Last year, it was the opposite.
But he predicts the preference will shift back to cars once gas prices start climbing again, even though today’s trucks are also a lot more fuel-efficient than they used to be.
