3 Reasons to Buy the 2018 Ford F-150

Ford F-150s have long been a popular choice and a leader in their class. This trend continues with the 2018 models. Learn more about the new year trims and their best features to see if this truck might work for you.



Excellent Towing and Payload Ratings

If you need a truck for serious work or play, one of the higher trims — such as the Platinum, Raptor, or Limited — will give you the most power. For example, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 on the F-150 SuperCrew has a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds. The next highest is the SuperCab at 11,300 pounds on a 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V-8. The dynamic hitch assist is a nice, new component that helps drivers attach a hitch using the F-150’s backup camera.

And the Powertrain to Back It Up

The new series of F-150s provides a variety of engine options across 10 trims and configurations. These are the choices available:

  • 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6
  • 3.3-liter Ti-VCT V-6
  • 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6
  • 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V-8
  • H.O. 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6


More Interior Features

Drivers now enjoy standard interior features such as a 360-degree camera with a split-view display, adaptive cruise control, a lane keeping system, and more. Drivers can also add an equipment group or technology group package to further upgrade the interior.

If you’ve liked Ford’s previous models, the new F-150s offer much more of the power you’ve come to expect, plus many new features. Take one out for a test drive to see how it feels behind the wheel.
