The 2018 Ford F-150 is available with a choice of three engines, three cabin styles, and three bed lengths. It also comes with Ford’s new Co-Pilot 360’s suite of driver assist technologies.
The Co-Pilot 360 is a package of technologies that protect drivers, occupants and pedestrians. The Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection feature monitors the F-150’s proximity to other vehicles and pedestrians up front and will alert the driver with visible and audible warnings. In extreme cases, and if the system determines a collision is imminent, active braking may automatically apply full braking.
The Blind Spot information system (BLIS) uses radar to identify a vehicle entering the blind spot and alerts the driver with an indicator light in the side-view mirror. Its range can be extended to include a conventional trailer once programmed into the system. The Cross Traffic Alert (CTA) feature warns drivers of traffic approaching from either side when the truck is backing out of a parking space. It uses the same radar sensors as BLIS and automatically engages when the driver selects reverse.
The 2018 truck’s standard, all-new 3.3-litre Ti-VCT V6 engine delivers higher towing capability, more payload capacity and better fuel efficiency than the engine it replaces. The engine comes fitted with a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with standard auto-start/stop technology.
The 3.3-litre engine is joined by an enhanced version of the 5.0-litre Ti-VCT V8. Fed by a new dual-injection system which, when coupled with a higher compression ratio and upgraded main and connecting rod bearings for greater durability, sees the V8 produce a 395 horsepower and 542Nm torque.
