Ten is a Magical Number
Following the lead of the 2017 Raptor, the entire 2018 F-150 lineup will feature Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission, regardless of engine choice, which means greater fuel economy, smoother gear shifts, and more versatility, regardless of the number of cylinders under the hood.
Diesel in a Half-Ton
For the first time in the F-150’s history, Ford is offering a diesel engine in this popular half-ton truck. The 3.0 liter Power Stroke diesel will take on the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel with one-of-a-kind powerful towing and handling power.
While the diesel is the big news in the powertrain department, the F-150 is getting some other big upgrades too. The 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6, which offers 207 kW, is now the base engine for the all-new F-150 model. Paired to a new 10 speed transmission, this engine is offering some of the best fuel savings in the history of the F150.
Stamped On Reality
This updated Ford model is now more authentic than ever, thanks to Ford dropping the stick-on badge and pounding the truck’s name right into the metalwork on the back side of the tailgate.
Smartest Technology Ever
The 2018 Ford F-150 is now smarter than ever. With technological advances like a 4G LGE Wi-Fi hotspot, with the ability to connect up to 10 devices, Ford’s SYNC3 infotainment system, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone technology integration, and a 360 degree camera you are rolling around in one of the most technologically advanced trucks on the market.
