Features of the new F-150 include the following:

  • It adds an available all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine, designed, engineered and tested in-house and paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission. It’s the first-ever diesel engine offered for F-150.
  • Built from a high-strength steel fully boxed ladder frame and a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body;
  • New grilles, headlamps and bumpers;
  • Six new wheel designs, ranging from 17 to 21 in.;
  • New enhanced segment-first available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality allows drivers to set a cruising speed. They then use radar and camera technology to monitor traffic ahead to maintain a set distance between vehicles – even following a vehicle down to a complete stop;
  • Automatic start/stop comes standard.


Engine options include:

  • Standard 3.3-liter V6 engine, with direct-injection for increased efficiency. The 3.3-liter V6 is expected by Ford to offer the same 282 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque as the previous model’s standard 3.5-liter V6.
  • Second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine features advanced dual port and direct injection technology, reduced internal friction and improved robustness. Like the 3.5-liter EcoBoost, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost will be paired to the segment-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission for 2018.
  • The 5.0-liter V8 also sees improvements in 2018, as the naturally aspirated engine features significant upgrades for increased power and torque. It’s also paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission for the first time.

Additionally, available features include:

  • Segment-first Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which helps the driver avoid or mitigate collisions with vehicles and pedestrians;
  • An embedded 4G LTE modem for a Wi-Fi hot spot, meaning that users can connect up to 10 mobile devices at a time;
  • New B&O PLAY audio system that takes advantage of high-end speakers;
  • Blind Spot Information System with trailer tow technology which is optimized for F-150 to include the length of a trailer up to 33 ft.;
  • Compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The 2018 F-150 goes on sale this fall. It will be built at Dearborn Truck Plant in Dearborn, Mich., and Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo, Missouri.
