Building on the rapid changes of the last few years, 2018 Ford F-150 alterations go much deeper than the new grille and fun wheel choices Enhanced performance, lusher interiors, and important new technologies are part of the update. Durability continues for this truck, recently named top pick-up in the JD Power Dependability Study.
Ford’s popular 3.5-liter Ecoboost paired up with a ten-speed automatic transmission in 2017. This combination produces best-in-class torque, rated at 470 lb.-ft. For 2018, the 2.7-liter Ecoboost V6 is picking up the best-in-class ten-speed automatic. Revised, this engine may produce more than its current 325 horsepower and 375 lb.ft. of torque. In addition, a 3.3-liter V-6 replaces the previous V-6. Managing to maintain horsepower and torque levels, the new engine is much more efficient and durable. Also revised, the five-liter V-8 will kick out even more than its current 385 horsepower and 387 lb.-ft. of torque. The biggest news is the Ford turbo-diesel. This powerful three-liter V6 diesel will definitely give the Ram turbo a run for its money. Since it’s a Ford, it will strive for best-in-class power and torque. With exclusive aluminum-based bodies, Ford trucks have a better horsepower-to-weight ratio than steel versions of the same truck. This helps each one make more out of every horse under the hood. In addition to all of this power and capability, automatic stop-start has been added, regardless of engine, to keep fuel costs down for busy drivers.
Three cabin sizes continue to serve today’s work crews. The two-row cabins are hospitable to families, providing an SUV-like atmosphere. Power-adjusting, climate-controlled seating makes the work day seem shorter. For 2018, Ford is raising the bar once again. Platinum styles are picking up a handsome Dark Marsala upholstery. Limited editions have a special Navy Pier environment. Kingsville Appointed seats will make their debut on the King Ranch.
The Sync touchscreen system is back and better than ever. Ford has worked hard to make it easy to interface, expanding voice capability and adding apps. In addition, higher editions will have access to an exclusive Bang and Olufsen system. A new 4G LTE Wi-Fi system is perfect for working people on the go. Workmates can access it while in motion, and the driver has access on smart devices when parked. This should help busy drivers keep up with incoming orders and other online work details.
The new F-150 will offer an improved form of adaptive cruise control. This system will stop the truck completely when traffic conditions demand it. Truck shoppers can also get a better forward collision warning system. The new one watches for pedestrians as well as stopping traffic, and it can automatically apply the truck’s brakes to avoid the worst. Ford also has a unique trailer tow technology as part of its blind spot information system. A lane watch will help pull the truck back into the lane lines. It’s also worth noting that 2017 two-row editions earned the Top Safety Pick Plus from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. These trucks also carry the five-star safety designation from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
