With the release of the 2018 F-150 Platinum, Ford makes a promise of power to Alberta drivers - offering them V8 performance and staggering trailering capabilities. This is no ordinary pick-up. It’s instead an all-wheel workhorse that can adapt to any payload with ease.


Slide into the 2018 Platinum and experience a rush of ferocity. This platform will send you sailing down every road, with its 5.0L engine yielding 395 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. Direct-injection technology utilizes high-pressure valves to improve fuel usage, while Ti-VCT functionality promotes steady bursts of power. A 10-speed automatic transmission boasts Tow/Haul mode capabilities, promising crisp gear shifts with every load; while rack-and-pinion steering connects to an available 4x4 drivetrain. This combines a two-stage rear suspension with a strut-front to ensure smooth handling.

The 2018 F-150 Platinum is a beast on the backroads - delivering up to 11,100 pounds of towing when properly equipped. Integrated trailer sway control technology provides a stable ride, accommodating heavy weights through careful traction distribution; while the hill descent feature automatically engages the disc brakes to ensure precise responses on inclines (payloads will no longer compromise performance).

Ford believes that power isn’t a luxury. It’s instead a right - and this is why the new Platinum proves a welcome addition to the Alberta market. To learn more contact us today.
