Canada's best-selling vehicle for the last five years, and the best-selling pickup for 49 straight, has been the F-Series pickup. Ford's incredibly important flagship that was remade for the 2015 model year with plenty of lightweight aluminum to help with fuel economy.

The reinvention of the F-Series was so significant, a Globe and Mail panel named the 2015 model its "newsmaker" vehicle of the year. As panelist Peter Frise, a University of Windsor engineering professor and CEO of AUTO21 noted, the F-Series is the one vehicle on which Ford's "corporate reputation hangs."

Well, 126,277 Canadians bought an F-truck in 2014, more than twice the number who purchased Canada's best-selling car, the Honda Civic (66,057). F-Series sales surged 37 per cent last December, with the reinvented F hitting dealerships in numbers.

Yet for all the engineering and design work put into remaking the F-Series, it also remains a pure deal here at the start of 2015. Shoppers are looking at as much as $9,000 or more in combined factory/dealer offers and they can be had with 2.29 per cent financing for up to five years, or a 3.79 per cent lease rate for 48 months. That means you can buy a $40,000-plus F-Series for a monthly lease payment as low as $516 a month.

The deals don't end with new pickups, either. Audi's elegant A6 sedan is on offer with up to $6,500 or more in factory and dealer offers, and all incentives can be had with 1.9 per cent financing for up to 60 months.

The sporty Hyundai Veloster is available with more than $2,300 in combined incentives and they can be "stacked" with a 2.99 per cent finance rate for up to 84 months.

And the entertaining, stylish and perhaps slightly underappreciated Mitsubishi RVR compact crossover is in play with perhaps as much as $3,000 or more in incentives, and they can be combined with zero per cent financing for 48 or 60 months.

All these are very good vehicles, with the F-Series arguably the most impactful new model we've seen in the last year. Yet the marketplace is so competitive, even Ford's flagship is available at a discounted price.

The lesson: push hard for a great total package on any vehicle in Canada. None are immune to the competitive pressures, not even Canada's most significant vehicle.
