The 2018 F-150: inside…
The 2018 Ford F-150 understands the power and performance required by personal and professional truck-buyers. Offering maximum variety, the F-150 is available with no less than four engine options, posts impressive fuel economy of 12 L/100 km (city) and 9.4 L/100 km (highway), and boasts towing capacity rated up to 10,800 pounds. Replacing the previous 3.5-liter V6, a new standard 3.3-liter V6 engine comes with a bit more power and fuel efficiency than its predecessors. Also new this year are more powerful, revised versions of the turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 and 5.0-liter V8 with a turbocharged diesel-powered V6 expected to debut later in the model year. Ford pairs a 10-speed automatic transmission to these latter two engine options, and every 2018 F-150 engine now has auto stop-start. Its refined, modern touch pervades a well-crafted cab interior packed with helpful tech innovation, such as the Pro Trailer Backup Assist system (that allows drivers to control trailer direction via a simple dashboard dial), the quick Sync 3 infotainment system, and other amenities that range from utilitarian to luxury.
A new F-150 means a new definition of road-bound strength and toughness, as well. As far as the 2018 Ford F-150 is concerned, durability’s got everything to do with a brand-new exclusive military-grade aluminum alloy frame that’s been heat-treated and hardened. Turns out that ditching traditional steel has translated into a significant reduction in the F-150’s weight…to the tune of some 700 lbs! With engineers now able to increase frame gauge (thickness) at specific points on the vehicle rather than overall, Ford’s been able make the 2018 F-150 stronger without making it heavier. To boot, the switch has also meant that the frame of the F-150 is also corrosion and dent resistant. How’s that for intelligent design?
Driving the new F-150 means that your’re taking to the highway in a machine crafted from the very stuff of military and industrial application. Conceived with the aid of leading-edge computer design technology, and having been subjected to over sixteen million sweat-beading kilometres of testing on Ford proving grounds and real-world job sites, the 2018 F-150 stares down the task at hand and gets its wheels dirty!
