2018 Ford F-150 Performance
The F-150 carries six powerful engines. The base edition of the F-150 has a 3.3L V6 engine, which can take care of the everyday work that needs to be done. The 6-speed automatic transmission features three different drive modes to suit your needs: normal, tow-haul, and sport. This engine produces 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.
The brand-new available Power Stroke V6 diesel engine, built from the 6.7L found in the Super Duty, is designed to provide power and capability if you’re essentially towing all the time. The horsepower of 250 and 440 lb-ft of torque combines to provide outstanding towing and diesel payload numbers. The EPA-estimated 30 MPG on the highway is certainly helpful if you’re looking to save some money at the pump, too. Auto start-stop technology is standard on all engines, which can shut the engine down when stopped at a light or when idling.
F-150 Towing Capability
When it’s equipped with the available 3.4L EcoBoost® twin-turbo V6 engine, the F-150 tows up to 13,200 pounds, with class-competitive hauling numbers. The max payload is almost 3,300 pounds. The high-strength military-grade aluminum alloy has reduced the weight of the F-150. More strength plus less weight means increased payload when compared to previous F-150 models. The 5.0L V8 engine offers power ratings of 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
When backing up with a trailer attached, you’re always dealing with the truck moving one way and the trailer going in the other direction. The available backup assist feature is handy, because all you have to do is turn the knob in the direction you want the trailer to go. Trailer sway control is a standard feature, while the available blind spot technology lets you know when another vehicle could be alongside the trailer or in a blind spot.
Helpful Tech Features
The available 8-inch LCD screen in the F-150 tracks important vehicle information, which includes fuel economy and towing data. This information is provided in the instrument cluster. Customize your own home screen with the data most important to you. The available SYNC® 3 system, which features Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, lets you link your smartphone to the vehicle for simple interaction. Make phone calls, play music, or use available third-party apps with a few taps of the touchscreen.
SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link®, complimentary features for five years, offer updated traffic, weather forecasts, and gas station locations.
