In 2018 I bought a 2016 F150 that was a Canadian model. I’ve had no trouble with it except for the fact that my owners manual is in French. Should paid attention in high school when they taught that. Also had some warranty work done with no issue.

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

Emisions are the same in both countries,however Ontario no longer requiers yearly emision checks,so if your state does you may have problems.
Btw best place to buy used is in Alberta no salt on roads and no sales tax

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


the physical speed guage doesnt change though,they have both metric and SAE on them and if its a canadian modle it will have the metric promanant and the sae in small numbers , I dont know if the US models have the opposit or just SAE. for example in my canadin f350 platinum I can switch all my readouts to SAE but that is just for the odomiter, tempature, fuel range and such like that. My spedomiter will still show me both at the same time, just the metric is more prominant.

Looser emissions standards in CA, I believe.

Mine is great.

That's true but it also has a large digital speed readout in the center that I suspect is what people look at the most.

Last summer we looked at and passed on a 2015 Ford Edge Sport at a NW Wa car dealer. The hubs of the brake rotors were very rusty and the Canadian import caused us to pass on it. We ended up buying a local Ford dealer service loaner 2020 Edge ST that was deeply discounted with 1500 miles on the clock.

What does SAE stand for with regards to a measurement that's used in only three countries in the world?

I purchased a 2 year off lease F250 that was a Canada vehicle. They need to be properly imported back to the US. Mine had the mfg warranty still intact. The gauges defaulted to metricl and French language if the battery was disconnected but you just changed the items like normal. Mine had the dash overlay changed so the spedo was in mph in the larger numbers.
