Ford Performance Vehicles
Your Ford Performance Dealership in Kelowna
At Orchard Ford, we are proud to be recognized as only authorized Ford Performance dealership in Kelowna and in B.C.’s interior. Ford Performance is the designation of the Special Vehicle Team which was created for Ford enthusiasts who wanted more performance from their Ford Vehicles.
The first SVT vehicles were unveiled in 1992 at the Chicago Auto Show and included the 1993 SVT Mustang Cobra and the 1993 SVT F-150 Lightning. After years of refinement, testing of different models for the SVT program and years in development, Ford narrowed the SVT field to two vehicles, the F-150 SVT Raptor and the Shelby GT500 - two vehicles known for performance and power.
Authorized Ford Performance designation gives Orchard Ford the ability to sell and maintain Ford Performance vehicles, and it is a designation we have worked hard to earn. Come in and see us at 911 Stremel Road in Kelowna and let us show you just what it means to experience these special vehicles.
Released in 2006, the Shelby GT500 was a collaboration between Ford's SVT and the legendary Carroll Shelby.

Ford Fiesta ST
The Ford ST started with the hatchback version of the garden-variety Fiesta and swapped in a high-output version of the automaker's turbocharged and directed-injected 1.6-liter "EcoBoost" four-cylinder. The motor produces 197 hp and 214 lb-ft of torque at 3500 rpm, enough get this hatch from zero-to-60 mph in less than seven seconds.

Combining high performance with ultra efficient aerodynamics, the Ford GT was introduced at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. Its next-generation twin-turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 will produce more than 600 horsepower and is mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch trans-axle for nearly instantaneous gear changes. The carbon-fiber body is designed to minimize drag and optimize down-force. GT joins the growing list of Ford performance vehicles introduced to customers worldwide.
