2018 Ford F-150: Engine Power & Options

Drivers will love the variety of power that the 2018 Ford F-150 offers with its numerous engine options. The new 3.3L V6, replacing the 3.5L V6, can produce 290 horsepower, while the 2.7L EcoBoost® boosts the abilities up to 325 horsepower. The 5.0L V8 brings 395 horsepower to the mix.

Drivers who are looking for a lot of pull to handle a hefty load will certainly enjoy the 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 and its ability to reach 375 horsepower while producing 470 lb-ft of torque. The high-output 3.5L EcoBoost® provides the most power with 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, which comes standard with the F-150 Raptor. Drivers will also enjoy the new 10-speed automatic transmission, which provides additional gear ratios as well as numerous drive modes that allow you to distribute power and torque where you see fit. 

Towing Abilities & Assistance

2018 Ford F-150 in Oxford WhiteWhen it comes to towing, there's no more trusted name than Ford. The 2017 Ford F-150 had incredible abilities of towing 12,000 pounds with its 3.5L EcoBoost® engine. However, the 2018 Ford F-150 is a whole other story, even surpassing the abilities of last year's model. While the official data hasn't been released yet, Ford promises a tougher F-150 than last years, which only excites us more. We can't wait to see what this truck can do.

One huge addition is the Dynamic Hitch Assist, which is now a standard feature. This feature uses a camera mounted from the point of view of your hitch. You can effectively attach a trailer without a friend signaling you to back up.

Technology Features

If you love your entertainment while you're out on the road, you may want to consider upgrading to the B&O PLAY audio system, which includes 10 Harman speakers that deliver high-quality audio. Drivers and passengers will certainly appreciate the new 4G LTE modem and Wi-Fi hot spot. This feature keeps you connected to a network, and it even has room for 10 total devices to connect.
