The 2018 Ford F-150 Features Best-in-Class Payload and Towing

If you're looking for a pickup truck that's powerful enough to handle most any job you throw at it, the 2018 Ford F-150 is for you. Ford built the F-150 with an incredible powertrain lineup that includes six available engines and two available transmissions. It comes standard with a 3.3-liter V6 engine that puts out 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Its base engine, which comes with a 6-speed transmission, has plenty of power for daily driving and gets better fuel economy than most full-size trucks - at 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. For more power, you can choose from five other engines that are paired with the 10-speed transmission, including the available turbocharged, 2.7-liter V6 that produces 325 horsepower, a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that puts out 375 horsepower, a 5.0-liter V8 engine that makes 395 horsepower, a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that puts out 450 horsepower, and a 3.0-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine with best-in-class diesel horsepower of 250 at 3,250 rpm. The Ford F-150 features a best-in-class payload of 3,300 pounds with the 5.0-liter V8 engine. The 3.5-liter V6 produces a best-in-class torque rating of 470 pound-feet. It's also best-in-class for towing, capable of towing up to 13,200 pounds. All Ford F-150 engines include auto start-stop technology for better efficiency. When you come to a stop, the engine shuts off to save fuel and restarts immediately when the brake is released.

The 2018 Ford F-150 comes standard with rear-wheel drive and is available with four-wheel drive. Shifting into four-wheel drive is as easy as turning a dial with the electronic shift-on-the fly (ESOF) system. Despite its size, the F-150 is quite agile, and it delivers a composed ride on winding roads. It has an available Off-Road package that includes a locking rear differential, an off-road-tuned suspension, and hill-descent control. The F-150 also offers helpful features like Pro Trailer Backup Assist, Dynamic Hitch Assist, and Trailer Sway Control which make it easy to connect a trailer and maneuver it. The Ford F-150 offers not only best-in-class payload, but also a pickup bed that can be equipped to make work easier and maximize productivity. Available features include a flexible, configurable Box Link system, LED box lights, stowable loading ramps, a class-exclusive integrated tailgate step with lift assist, a class-exclusive remote tailgate release to lock, unlock or lower the tailgate, and class-exclusive deployable box side steps available on all cab configurations, including the SuperCrew with a 5.5-foot pickup box. The 2018 Ford F150 has the most payload capacity and towing capability in its class, and better fuel economy than most full-size pickups.
