2018 Ford F-150 at Leckner Ford Marshall

The F-150 pickup truck is here to get things done with no problems, and at this, it excels! This vehicle sports an impressively high-grade interior, six engine selections, and assistive contemporary tech. Use of robust aluminum body panels and truck-bed contribute towards making it the lightest truck in its class. The 2018 F-150 can achieve fuel savings of up to 22 mpg combined, all F-150 models use engines with auto stop-start, and towing capacity is rated at up to 13,200-pounds. A standard 3.3-L V6 engine debuts for 2018, while Ford also smartly carries over popular engines from prior years, while revamping them to make them stronger, including a turbocharged 2.7-L V6 and 5.0-L V8. Those last engines come with a ten-speed automatic transmission and there is also a turbocharged diesel V6 available too! Freshened-up fore-and-aft appearance changes have been done (to the F-150's benefit), plus, there is an augmented forward collision mitigation system (new to the 2018 year) as well. This is all just the beginning, let's get more into this well-outfitted truck option by reading below!

Wait, how many engines are there?

There are six engines technically, each one catering to the diverse needs of a truck-wielding populace. First off, the new 3.3-liter V6 engine powers up to 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque, and partners to 6-speed automatic transmission that incorporates Normal, Tow-Haul, and Sport driving modes. All other five engines utilize the extraordinary powers of a 10-speed automatic transmission. Know that there exists a turbocharged 2.7-liter Ecoboost V6 that can get 325-hp and 400 lb-ft, then there is a 5.0-liter V8 with 395-hp that revolves 400 lb-ft of torque and permits twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) as well as a direct injection (DI is new to 2018). Moving forward, there is also a turbocharged, 2nd-gen 3.5-liter Ecoboost V6 that gets 375-hp and best-in-class 470 lb-ft. Not stopping there, note the new 3.0L Power Stroke V6 Turbo Diesel that is rated to produce 250 horsepower and a best-in-class 440 lb.-ft of torque at only 1,750 rpm (getting 11,400-pounds of maximum towing). On the F-150 Raptor trim feel the rumble of its high-output twin-turbo, intercooled DOHC 24-valve 3.5L EcoBoost with 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque!

Would you outline the 2018 models for a moment?

There are six essential trim ranks: the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited. There's also the off-road Raptor model that lives a little bit in a world of its own. The XL trim rocks a signature 2-bar black grille, front 40/20/40 seats, a rearview camera with dynamic hitch assist, and allows buyers to get SYNC with AppLink, SYNC 3, the Reverse Sensing System, and color-coordinated carpet with carpeted floor mats. The XLT trim rolls in on alloy wheels, then adds amenities such as chrome on that same grille, 17" silver-plated aluminum wheels, a keypad entry system, an optional kicker subwoofer (SuperCab & SuperCrew), rear privacy glass, and then completes the look with all-chrome bumpers, front and back. Consider for a moment the F-150 Lariat with its power-adjustable pedals with memory, 18" wheels, 2-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry/ignition, driver-seat memory settings, optional B&O PLAY premium sound system (with CD & HD Radio), available 360-Degree Camera with Split-View Display, and leather upholstery. The King Ranch model represents the best in working trucks as it comes solely as a SuperCrew with standard accommodations such as Ford's BoxLink, DRLs, voice-activated Navigation with SiriusXM Traffic & Travel Link, and front bucket seats with center flow-through console and the King Ranch leather trim. Moving towards the upscale Platinum model, you will find things like the (BLIS) Blind Spot Intervention system, 20" wheels, an Easy Fuel capless fuel filler, an option for a foldable pickup box Bed Extender, and an available twin panel Moonroof (on the SuperCrew). Then there is the F-150 Limited on its 22" wheels, augmented front leather upholstery, standard heated front & back seats, Pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, Outside temperature display, an 8" Productivity Screen, and running boards that deploy electronically in the SuperCrew format. Optional with the Limited model are things like an aluminum crossbed storage toolbox by Weather Guard, stowable loading ramps, and a bed divider! The snarling off-roader Raptor model really brings the power with a high-output variant of the turbocharged 3.5L engine, skid plates, a 170 degree rear door (SuperCab), a reinforced frame, a unique 4-wheel-drive system, the F-O-R-D grille design, a Torsen limited-slip front differential, flared fenders, 17" wheels with highest-rated off-road tires, black carpet flooring with custom rubber front/rear floor mats, and even items like 3.0" FOX Racing Shox!

Overall, what else is offered with the 2018 Ford F-150?

The Ford F-150 descends with three cab variations: Regular, SuperCab (extended) and SuperCrew (crew cab), as well as triple-bed length options. A standard bed (6' x 6") or a long bed (8") is available on SuperCab and Regular, and the SuperCrew provides a choice of a short bed (5' x 6") or the standard bed. SuperCab and SuperCrew models are standard with 60/40-split folding rear seats and more speakers, while 4-wheel-drive models acquire tow hooks up front. Think about one-off items like box side steps, a panoramic sunroof (SuperCrew), blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, a regular sunroof (SuperCab), back seat belts that can inflate, Navigation, Drop-In or Spray-In Bedliners, and soft or hard Tonneau box covers.
