The Ford F-150’s Best-in-Class Performance

2018 Ford F-150 Performance Highlights

Available High-Output 3.5L EcoBoost V6

Opt for the off-road-focused 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor for an audacious twin-turbo intercooled 24-valve V6 with 10-speed automatic transmission.

450 Max HP

Some trucks focus on power at the detriment of speed — but not the Ford F-150. You’ll pass with ease and feel fully in control of the road.

510 lb-ft Max Torque

Whether you need to crawl up muddy inclines, power across rock fields, or tow heavy trailers, phenomenal torque ratings are on your side.

Available 4X4 Drive

The F-150’s available 4x4 system intelligently distributes engine torque between all four wheels to ensure reliable traction regardless of weather or terrain.

The Ford F-150’s Best-in-Class Specs

The 2018 Ford F-150 launched with decades of half-ton trucking supremacy at its back, but it takes more than lineage and name recognition to be named Motor Trend’s 2018 Truck of the Year. To bring the segment to bold new heights, the latest Ford F-150 generation adopted a revolutionary aluminum-alloy body that dropped weight by up to 700 pounds to boost performance, capability, and efficiency in equal measure.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the new F-150 also offers a wide range of potent engines:

  • 3.3L Ti-VCT V6: Generates up to 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2.7L EcoBoost V6: Generates up to 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
  • 5.0L Ti-VCT V8: Generates up to 395 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.5L V6 EcoBoost: Generates up to 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque – upgrade to the Raptor for the 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque output.

Power is refined through a leading 10-speed automatic transmission to deliver pitch-perfect performance whether passing on the highway between Hayward and Cumberland or hauling heavy loads from standstill in Rice Lake.

Speaking of heavy loads, the Ford F-150 can haul and carry more than any competing half-ton:

To put that in perspective, the 2018 Toyota Tacoma only tows up to 6,800 and the Ram 1500 offers up to 10,640 pounds. Even the Chevy Silverado falls short with a maximum tow rating of 12,500 towing.
