Then dealerships started complaining that everyone wasn't shopping local and claiming they couldn't honor warranty work because the vehicles were bought in the US etc. The Raptor according to ford.ca *starts* at 53,199. So before you've even started you have nearly 60k truck by the time your done with taxes and such. Welcome to Canada
That is why some manufacters void their warranty if the vehicle is exported. Honda does this for example.
