What’s new in 2018 for the Ford F-150?Blog Oct 18th, 2019
One of the most prominent trucks on the entire market, Ford’s best-selling pickup is back and better than ever. While previous models delivered on every level, wait until you see what’s in store for this year! The Ford F-150 returns for 2018 with even more upgrades than you ever thought was possible with enhanced performance, redesigned details, and the latest technology for your convenience.
At Lally Southpoint Ford, you can trust us to have the latest F-150s ready for you to test-drive and take home. In the meantime, read on to learn more about the significant changes that wait for you when you decide to buy a 2018 F-150. We’ve come up with a breakdown of some of the most notable features you should be paying attention to!
F-150’s are already well-known for the powerful engines under their hoods—and yet, there’s still room for improvement. Now standard with the baseline model, a 3.3-litre Ti-VCT V6 engine replaces the previous 3.5-litre version for a more fuel-efficient drive. Additionally, the F-150 now incorporates a 10-speed automatic transmission on the newly-revised versions of the turbocharged 2.7-litre V6 EcoBoost engine and 5.0-litre V8 Ti-VCT.
One of the outstanding performance features for 2018 comes in the form of the Auto Start-Stop Technology. Now standard across all F-150 engines, this is an innovation that’ll help you save even more on gas; when you come to a complete stop, the advanced technology reduces fuel consumption by shutting off the engine while not in use, starting back up again once the brake pedal is released. You’ll be saving more at the pump because you’ll only be there half the time!
The 2018 F-150 incorporates a wealth of fresh, detail-oriented design updates. For example, the front and rear styling are revised, while new grille designs, bumpers, exterior lighting, tailgates, and wheels are also added onto the F-150. Several models have also been given revised interiors with new colours, materials, and options for you to choose from. Of course, you’ve got lots of opportunity to customize your F-150, so don’t forget to contact our parts department to learn more about how you can customize yours.
The Latest Technology
We can’t talk about a Ford vehicle without mentioning Ford SYNC and FordPass. These two work together seamlessly, and now with the available 4G LTE Wifi hotspot, you’ll never have a lost-connection moment. A high-end Bang & Olufsen audio system is also available to give you the best sound quality in a pick-up truck for the best music and audio experience. When it comes to safety, the F-150 returns with the same top-of-the-line features to give you peace of mind while on the road, with a few additional refinements. Among the additional active safety assists are the adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality as well as the forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection. Additionally, the forward-collision mitigation system also receives enhancements for more accurate readings.
