2018 Ford F-150s Bring Most Advanced Powertrain Lineup To Date

Ford, F-150, 2018

On sale this fall, Ford has released the details on the new 2018 F-150. While this wasn’t a major overhaul year for the best-selling truck, Ford did extensively revamp the powertrain options. Returning engine options in 2018, with improvements, include the: 3.3-liter PFDI V6, 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 and 5.0-liter PFDI V8.

However, all-new to the 2018 are two additional options, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and 3.5-liter high-output EcoBoost V6. While the actual numbers vary across the entire engine lineup the 2018 F-150s saw an increase in torque, fuel economy and horsepower (the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6’s hp remained the same) across the board.

Via Ford:

  • With more engine choices, the 2018 F-150 is even more fuel-efficient; its second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost has an EPA estimated rating of 20 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined which is best-in-class.
  • New F-150 debuts with new, best-in-class 13,200-pound tow rating – thanks to more powerful, efficient engine offerings featuring standard Auto Start-Stop and expanded availability of segment-first 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission
  • New truck sports a tougher design with bolder Built Ford Tough styling and its high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body and box
  • Using available class-exclusive Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, the 2018 F-150 can assist drivers in congested traffic – even applying brakes to help prevent a collision; available Wi-Fi hotspot helps occupants stay connected on the go
