It’s a comparison of specs. You scrutinize every half-ton detail, calculating horsepower promises and all-wheel ratios. Performance isn’t a luxury. It’s instead a demand, and you will ensure that your next pick-up purchase delivers the V8 value you crave. Every number is catalogued with the greatest of care.

The Novlan team suggests sparing a few thoughts for safety.

While none can deny the need for best-in-class trailering, too often does this prove the only concern of drivers - with everyday safety ignored. This is why the 2018 F-150 is an ideal option, yielding both performance and security.



According to Truck Trend, Ford embraces prevention with its new F-150. A 360-degree camera anchors the rear, providing comprehensive lane monitoring. This pairs with a high-definition SYNC console (which receives real-time sensory feeds and alerts drivers to the presence of potential impediments, such as pedestrians or other vehicles) for improved blind spot control. Dynamic Hitch Assist technology delivers gridline support for parking, while the vented all-wheel brakes ensure smooth decelerations.

To promote steady handling on the highway, the 2018 F-150 has been fitted with a suite of traction programs - including Roll Stability Control, AdvanceTrac, and Curve Control. These systems work in tandem to maintain optimal tire grippage, accommodating every sudden twist or turn. They shift between two-wheel and four-wheel drive as needed, engaging the suspension to provide seamless responses.

Through this, Ford offers a safer ride - with the 2018 F-150 enabling consumers to adapt to traffic and road conditions alike.

The curve proves sharp. You try to follow its unnatural arc but it breaks to a sudden left - sending your truck dangerously close to the pavement edge. You jerk the steering wheel to compensate and feel your payload shudder in response. For a brief and terrible moment, you fear that your vehicle will topple to its side.

It - thankfully - doesn’t. The worry, though, doesn’t fade away.

Ford understands. This is why it’s pairing its 2018 F-150 with exclusive Curve Control - a system that helps to achieve a balanced ride on every terrain.




As TFL Truck explains, Ford is redefining safety. The 2018 F-150 will boast Curve Control - which utilizes on-board sensors to monitor environmental changes (including inclines, turns, and uneven pavement). Should the conditions prove less than optimal, the system will engage the brakes and reduce the overall speed by 10 MPH. This will provide drivers with greater stability, sparing them the sudden lurch of a steering wheel and allowing them to instead gently correct their positions.

This, TFL Truck notes, will create safer conditions - with the new F-150 automatically responding to dangerous curves. The system requires less than a second to achieve total speed control, and this may prove the difference between success and an accident.

Records are meant to be broken - but, with the release of the 2018 F-150, Ford is decimating every milestone. Its latest F-Series platform will prove the ultimate half-ton beast, delivering superior towing, payload, and MPG capabilities. The future of performance has arrived.


Torque News reports that the 2018 F-150 will transform the pick-up market. This Ford model (which is scheduled for an early fall release) promises exceptional everyday value - connecting drivers to North America's best segment ratios. When properly equipped it offers:

Conventional Towing: Up to 13,200 Pounds.

Increase From 2017 Model: 13 lb.-ft.

These numbers showcase the power of the 2018 F-150 - with Ford pushing its signature pick-up to the limit. Drivers will discover staggering all-terrain performance, hauling the heaviest of loads with ease over rocky terrains, sharp inclines, and more.

They’ll also experience efficiency. Torque News declares the 2018 F-150 to be a best-in-class workhorse, earning up to 30 MPGs on the highway. No other truck delivers such strong economy.

Economy is no longer defined by sedan lines and hatchback profiles. Instead Ford is bringing sustainable power to the pick-up market - with its 2018 F-150 promising segment-leading efficiency.


MotorTrend reports that the new F-150 - which will arrive in dealerships this fall - delivers unexpected value. Ford has bolstered this platform with a suite of cost-conscious engines, ensuring that drivers achieve optimal MPG ratios (rather than having to waste time at the fuel pump). No longer accept compromise. Discover a far easier economy instead:

Engine: 3.3L V6 (Naturally Aspirated).
City MPG: 19.
Highway MPG: 25.

Engine: 2.7L V6 (EcoBoost).
City MPG: 20.
Highway MPG: 26.

Engine: 5.0L V8.
City MPG: 17.
Highway MPG: 23.

Engine: 3.5L V6 (EcoBoost).
City MPG: 18.
Highway MPG: 25.

Each of these powertrains offers best-in-class performance - with Ford utilizing smart resource strategies. The 2018 F-150 has been fitted with both a 10-speed automatic transmission (creating a more fluid driving experience) and start-stop technology (ensuring peerless engine responses). These systems combine to enhance every drop of fuel, catering to all consumer needs.

Prepare for a new kind of pick-up.

It’s a sacrifice of economy - with engines siphoning gasoline, demanding more and more resources with every mile. To accommodate those heavy-duty payloads, they require sustenance; and drivers are forced to bear the burden of costly pump visits.

Ford thinks this unfair - which is why it’s bolstering the efficiency of its 2018 F-150 XLT!




According to The Drive, the F-Series is receiving an economy upgrade. The 2018 F-150 XLT - which features a 5.0L V8 engine - will now offer improved performance, with its economy rating rising to 19 (City) and 23 (Highway). This represents a 2 MPG increase, which could translate to hundreds of dollars saved every year.

Impressed?

Ford recognizes that pick-up drivers are too often forced to endure budget-busting miles. The 2018 F-150 XLT should, however, help to ease the burden. This truck will pair direct-injection technology with a new 10-speed automatic transmission to ensure precise fuel distribution. The V8 will be optimized.

It will also deliver power. The Drive notes that - despite the increase in efficiency - the new XLT will still provide robust performance, yielding 395 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. This truly is a perfect platform.

Performance is no longer defined by a one-size-fits-all philosophy. Instead Ford is fusing its beloved F-Series with a comprehensive suite of powertrain options - allowing drivers to tailor every mile to their specific needs. The 2018 F-150 promises best-in-class adaptability.


According to Equipment World, Ford will soon provide drivers with the flexibility they crave. The 2018 F-150 will boast a wide selection of available features, offering access to premium power. Among the most notable options are:

Engine Choices: the new F-150 will offer a 3.3L Ti-VCT V6, a 2.7L EcoBoost V6, a 5.0L Ti-VCT V8, a 3.5L EcoBoost V6, and a 3.0L PowerStroke Diesel. These motors will allow it to accommodate all heavy-duty demands with ease.

Bed Technologies: for 2018, Ford will provide drivers with LED work-lights, an integrated tailgate step, stowable loading ramps, and a BoxLink cargo system. Take advantage of these features to improve payload capabilities and ensure more efficient storage.

Wheel Sizes: the F-Series will now offer wheels ranging from 17-inches to 22-inches. Drivers can decide which best suits their needs.

Through these enhancements - along with the now standardized Auto Start-Stop system - the 2018 F-150 should prove a powerhouse on the highway and the back-roads alike. To learn more about this pick-up contact us today.

With high-style comes an expectation of sedans - chic little cars defined by chic little lines. They’re sophisticated; they’re precise; and they’re thoroughly ill-suited for the world of back-road adventures.

In its quest to change the market, Ford is shattering this tradition - connecting drivers to the performance they need and the design they’ve too often been denied. The 2018 F-150 is coming.

According to Maxim, Ford will soon premiere its latest F-Series model. The 2018 F-150 (scheduled for a fall arrival) will serve as both workhorse and showcase, delivering a bold new look that will impress every driver. Among the fascia changes will be:

Billet-Milled Fenders.

A Twin-Bar Grille.

C-Shaped LED Headlamps.

A Curved Hood.

Chrome Detailing.

Each of these elements was carefully chosen to emphasize the 2018 F-150’s newly extended frame - with Ford highlighting the widened body and elongated front fenders. The effect is undeniably power and will surely catch the eye of every pick-up fan.

It already has our full attention!

No official specs for the 2018 F-150 have yet been revealed - but critics anticipate that Ford will pair its fresh look with a 5.0L V8 and a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The new year has just begun - but Ford is already planning for 2018, prepping its beloved F-150 for a mid-cycle refresh. North American drivers will soon receive a series of pick-up upgrades, allowing them to greet every challenge with a V6 growl.


According to The Drive, the 2018 F-150 will be subtly transformed - with Ford tweaking both the chassis and powertrain to improve overall performance and economy. High-strength aluminum-alloy will be better utilized, defining an estimated 70% of the paneling and reducing platform weight by more than 500 pounds. A new 10-speed automatic transmission will ensure responsive handling, while the standardized 3.5L engine will feature EcoBoost technology. When combined, these elements will ensure both 375 HP and more than 30 MPGs on the highway!

The 2018 F-150 promises to propel the pick-up market to new heights - adapting to both commercial and all-terrain needs with greater ease. As The Drive notes, the truck will also boast a 240-amp alternator, allowing it to accommodate high-power systems (such as UTV winches or flood lights). There will be no challenge to great for Ford.

The possibilities are exciting. With the impending release of the 2018 F-150, Ford is promising diesel power - fusing its beloved pick-up with a more economical engine and improved MPG capabilities. It’s redefining the half-ton market.

As Torque News explains, however, no official specs for this diesel upgrade have been given, leaving many critics to speculate on the potential powertrain options. Ford has announced that this engine will share similarities to ones currently available in North America, and this has revved up comparisons across every social feed.

Among the most popular of these comparisons are:


The Ram 1500 - should Ford seek to compete directly with the Ram 1500, its new F-150 will have to generate (at least) 240 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. This will require advanced PowerStroke technology, along with EcoBoost efficiency. A V6 is expected.

The Range Rover - Ford has already built a 3.0L turbo-diesel engine for the Ranger Rover, and many suspect it will apply this to its F-150 (creating 254 HP and 443 lb.-ft of torque).

Should either of these predictions prove correct, the 2018 F-150 will yield best-in-class performance - ensuring increased economy and strong horsepower. It will transform the North American market through smart diesel driving.

Shadows surround you. The day has ended; the night has come; and the road is long and winding, with only your headlights to penetrate the blackness. You can’t see.... anything, and this will be a frightening drive home.

Ford understands that fear - with its recent poll noting that between 81% to 87% of consumers feel anxious in the dark. Both men and women experience high levels of stress when traveling in the evening, and they often find themselves hesitating to Go Further when the journey will demand more than an afternoon. 

This must change - which is why we’re pleased to announce that Ford will soon offer night-vision capabilities for its 2018 F-150.



According to Torque News, the popular pick-up will receive a new radar system, blending frontal and rear sensors for precise detection. Real-time camera feeds will monitor all surrounding angles, immediately alerting drivers to the approach of pedestrians, vehicles, and more. A series of chimes, along with flashing dashboard icons, will serve as warnings to stop; and, should this fail, an automatic braking function will be deployed to avoid collisions.

Through this, the 2018 F-150 will provide greater nighttime protection. Drivers will be able to both identify and assess obstacles; and creating more efficient routes will prove far easier. The dark will no longer be a concern.
