2018 F-150: Packing a Powerful Performance

The 2018 F-150 features some updated powertrains this year, for a total of five engine options. Let's take a closer look at each of them:

  • 3.3L Ti-VCT V6: 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.7L EcoBoost® V6: 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft
  • 5.0L Ti-VCT V8: 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft
  • 3.5L EcoBoost® V6: 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft
  • 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 (Raptor Trim): 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft

These engines deliver the acceleration you need, and diesel fans can look forward to the F-150's new 3.0L Power Stroke® V6, due out in Spring 2018.

Every engine but the base 3.3L V6 comes paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, giving you more control over your driving experience. With modes like Tow/Haul, Snow/Wet, EcoSelect and Sport, you can customize your drive to match your own preferences and the conditions on the road.

A Towing Beast

It's not for nothing that the Ford F-150 gets best-in-class towing and payload numbers. The highest-towing engine is the 375-horse EcoBoost® V6, which can tow up to 13,200 pounds when properly equipped. With trailering capacity like that, you can hook up whatever you need, whether it's your boat, jet ski(s), trailer or anything else that needs to arrive at your destination.

Ford smart towing features can make trailering easier for you. Standard trailer sway control will help you make controlled turns, and the available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ can help you synchronize trailer and truck, so they both move in the same direction when you need to back up.

Extreme Hauling Capacity

Have plenty of cement blocks or lumber to get to the worksite? How about a full load of furniture to haul? With the 2018 F-150, you're covered. With the 8-foot bed and 5.0L V8 engine, this truck maxes out with a payload of 3,270 pounds. That's an impressive number, and one that will ensure nothing is left behind.

The F-150 offers a well-equipped pickup bed, with all kinds of standard and available features to help you with your work. LED box lights make it easier to load and unload the bed when you're in a dark garage or under the cover of night. And the flexible BoxLink™ helps you tie down or hook up your cargo for security and peace of mind.
