This Site in no way constitutes an offer to buy or sell vehicles from Ford of Canada. Although we make reasonable efforts to ensure the pricing and product information are correct, the information on this Site should not be used as a substitute for information that is available from an authorized Ford dealer. These terms and conditions are governed by the laws of Ontario and applicable Canadian federal laws.
Prices, product specifications and other information shown on this Site are for information purposes only, are subject to change at any time without obligation, may vary from region to region, and may not be completely up to date or accurate.

You agree that use of a Ford Site is at your own risk. Ford, information providers and their agents shall not be responsible or liable for damages or losses of any kind, including direct, indirect, consequential, special, incidental or punitive damages, related to your access or inability to access a Ford Site, any computer virus originating from a Ford Site, any communication failure caused by a Ford Site, or any use of a Ford Site, or additionally, any errors, omissions, and/or defects in a Ford Site or its functionality, or for results based on reliance on the content of a Ford Site.

Third Party Information such as Comparator Values
On certain portions of this Site, you may have the opportunity to request information or a contact from your local dealer through various shopping tools such as Search Dealer Inventory, Request a Local Quote, Trade-in Value, or Test Drive. By clicking on these links, you will proceed to a website for a Ford Dealer. Each dealership operation is a separate legal entity, independent from Ford of Canada. As such, each dealership has its own privacy practices and Ford of Canada is not responsible for these privacy practices. We recommend that you review the privacy practices of the Ford of Canada Dealer with whom you are dealing to ensure that you understand their privacy practices and procedures.
Comparator data is provided by Chrome Data Solutions, LP (“Chrome”), is not the opinion of Ford, and is provided for information purposes only. Neither Chrome nor Ford make any warranty or guarantee of any kind regarding the comparator data, including as to currency, accuracy or completeness. Configured vehicles are compared to the same series vehicle chosen without additional options. All prices, specifications and equipment are subject to change without notice.
