2018 Ford F-150 Exterior
The 2018 F-150 comes with a rather rejuvenated version of the fascia of the truck, with improvements easily noticeable in segments such as the grille, headlights as well as the bumper up front. For instance, the grille comes in a bigger, hexagonal appearance that curves downward into the bumper area. Also, there is the presence of horizontal bars that appear to cut the grille downwards into the headlight area. Behind the car, you will easily notice that the rear gate comes with a new design innovation, also, the taillight appears to have a more protruding outlook. This singular innovation seems to have worked its own magic as it appears to have given life and meaning to the rear of the car.
Furthermore, its aluminum build appears not to be tampered with as it looks just like the old model. Also, the functionality heritage of the F-150 has not been in anyway downplayed or eliminated as the 2018 model comes with two hooks bulging from the frontal bumper. In addition to this, there is a two inches unit beneath the bumper behind, also there is a seven and four pin connector attached at the side of the plates (license plate). Also in order to make mounting this monster of a truck, side steps are a visible feature, in addition, the steps added to the cargo section, also, the tailgate remains unchanged in every regard except that the hitherto observed errors seemed to have been taken into account when making the 2018 model.
It is a common feature for four wheel drive trucks to come along with an extra piece of plating for its underbody which is designed to offer needed protection for vital components of the car from any form of damage, also the lower trims are accompanied by fog lights on the frontal end. Also, the side mirror appears to have been touched up with the spotlight feature that enables it to be brighter on the side of the truck. This feature certainly helps up the level of productivity even till late into the night.
Ford F-150 2018 Interior
The all new Ford F-150 2018 comes with little or no changes as far as its interior is concerned. However, it should be noted that the features that made the 2015 model a customer delight are still very much in place. The truck cabin features some rather unique settings such as glare free elements as well as smart storage spaces. What’s more? The next-gen Ford F-150 comes in diverse levels of trim thus meeting everyone’s desires, customers ranging from the local building contractor to the middle-class family guy.
Furthermore, the normal F 150 comes with normal rubber doors vinyl seats, as well as the normal everyday radio/CD. However, a look at the higher trims of the car show an upgrade in its musical capability, the Lariat, for instance, comes with leather seats as well as the SYNC 3 infotainment systems. The SYNC 3 infotainment system comes with Apple Carplay, as well as the Android Autoplay application. The top Trim variant could very much compete with the best of the same line that the Germans could ever offer, with such features such as two tone leather seats with massaging and cooling effect, a roof that enables you to view the stars at midnight, as well as a 360 degrees camera that help you have a picture of whatever it is you intend doing.
The 2018 Ford F-150 comes with a revamped engine framework, almost everything about it received a definite upgrade. There is an introduction of a 3.0-litre power stroke V6 turbo diesel. The 3.5-liter engine for the base was replaced by an eco-friendly 3.3 liters V 6 engine. This engine comes with both injections as well as port functions which help it possess’ higher efficiency when it comes to fuel usage and consumption. In spite of the engines apparent size, it comes with a capacity to produce about290 horsepower at about 6,500 rpm, and also about 265 feet of torque at about four thousand revolutions per minute which are a clear improvement over the previous version.

A little further, you find the 2.7 liter EcoBoost V6 also tows the same line as the big brother as it comes with a near total change. This new generation engine comes along with fuel injection as well as port functions, in addition to this; it also comes with lower internal friction as well as stronger internal materials. The power output, however, remains at 3225 HP with an output of 5,00rpm.
A further look at the 5.0 liter V 8 engine shows an engine that co0mes with port and fuel injection capabilities. Also, it possesses an anti friction alloy that seems to have been copied from the GT Mustang thus giving it greater protection as well as higher power. The overall output thus ranks in the region of 395 HP at 3,850 rpm.
There is, of course, the 3.0 liter V6 turbo diesel, this has been named the power stroke, and it was specifically designed and tested in the house just like the 6.7 liter V8. Therefore, it is just a reincarnation in the new 3.0-liter engine. There has however been no public announcement as regards the output specs for the power stroke. Furthermore, all these engines except the 3.3 liter V6 come with the all new 10-speed auto transmission technology. All these engines are capable of towing heavy loads and thus making this new variant to possess the best towing capabilities any of its predecessors have ever offered.
This rugged truck also comes with advanced safety features to provide maximum security to its passengers during off road trips. Along with Blind Spot Monitoring, it offers other features like:
• Pre-collision assist along with pedestrian detection system which secures the truck from any possible collision by monitoring distance between the truck and other vehicles on the road.
