Interest in 2018 F-150s creates big stir at Friendly Ford

“The New Face of Tough” includes major front-end freshening with all-new grilles, bumpers and headlamp designs. The changes have taken the F-150 to an all-new level.

Yet other key elements include 20-inch machined aluminum wheels with flash-gray painted pockets now available on XLTG 301A and Lariat 501A Super Crew, along with rear-window fixed privacy glass with defroster now optional on the XL model.

The Ford tailgate applique is now standard on the F-150 Raptor, and new colors include Guard, Magma Red, Stone Gray and Lead Foot.

To borrow a Ford marketing line, the F-150 is even tougher, even smarter and more capable.

The 2018 model also includes an enhanced engine lineup highlighted by the all-new 3.3-liter V-6 with 290 horsepower, 265 pound-feet of torque,port fuel and direct injection and flex-fuel capability along with CNG/propane fuel capability.

Taking technology to yet another level are the 2018 F-150 transmissions highlighted by a six-speed automatic with SelectShift capability (3.3-liter V-6 only) and the 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift capability with progressive range select and selectable drive modes.

Ford’s multifaceted capability includes exceptional powertrains with integrated towing systems that create a truck ready to tackle tough jobs.

“There’s so much new to the 2018 Ford F-150,” Davis said. “Its performance, exterior, interior, capability and technology are unmatched once again making the F-Series trucks the hottest-selling trucks on the market.”
