Been looking at a few used newer model year used heavy duty pick ups. Some I have seen here in the Pacific NW are having Canadian window stickers from new that say “Not for Sale in US”. Dealers are not openly disclosing these are built for Canada ????.

Any potential issues? The one I test drove 2020 Ford F-350 seemed fine and I didn’t realize until I left and did deeper research. I didn’t seem to notice the speedo reading in km. Funny, the dealer said it was the owner’s previous truck from new. Liars.

Yes! Dealer not being completely candid IMO will cost you money down the line. Bet they try to have you sign a complicated waiver.

My neighbor bought one of those about 6 mos ago from a place in Seattle that sells nothing else. It's a 2016 F150 with 35K miles and it has been great. They keep the trucks in "quarantine" for 30 days while they make sure the title is clear and clean them up from stem to stern.
Other than a lot of extra "eh's" in the owners manual, you cannot tell the difference from any other truck. Seriously, there's nothing metric or what ever that jumps out at you.

My daughter bought a Canadian acadia. Dealer reset the odometer to miles vs kilometers. Maybe, they don't meet us emissions?

They are identical.... the Super Duties, at least, are assembled at Kentucky Truck Plant and I’m quite sure the only difference is the door sticker. Some option packages are unique to Canadian trucks .... ie I think you might be able to buy a 2wd Platinum in the US but all Canadian Platinums come with 4wd. I sold one of my trucks directly to a fellow from South Carolina. There are certain things that must be done prior, but, overall it was a very easy process for him to import it into the US so long as he drove it across the line. Ford warranty transfers 100%. GM has a slight delay and Ram warranty is not transferable across the line.

some manuf wont allow warranty work on a Canadian vehicle in the US and vice versa. im sure if you were on vacation and a quick call will change that. but for permanent use in another country that normally a no go.

I saw canadian rigs for sale frequently over that last two three years. My new to 2014 iirc looking, has a metric vs sae reading for odometer etc. Seen them at NEW dealerships selling them as used, along with used only dealerships.

Other than warranty, assuming vehicle is within factory time,mileage etc, not sure I would worry about it.

On the newer trucks, just a button on the dash changes all the readouts from Metric to SAE.

Yep,because of the weaker Canadian dollar, US dealers are buying up off-lease Canadian vehicles.
I bought a used 2014 Canadian F150 XTR a few years ago, from a Washington State dealer. XTR is the Canadian version of the XLT. Only thing I couldn't change was the day/month/year format.
