Refreshed 2018 F-150 Features Improved Engines & Capability All Around

Changes to the 2018 Ford F-150 are subtle, but significant. Autoblog asks, in their recent review of the refreshed model, "How do you improve on a product that moved 820,799 units in 2016 alone without risking what made it popular to begin with?"

The answer is by improving everything that's already there.

The 2018 F-150 will offer six different engine options, most of which are upgraded versions of existing engines. The base 3.5-liter V6 of the 2017 model is being replaced with an all-new 3.3-liter V6, with improvements to horsepower, torque, and gas mileage.

The second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 is getting 25 pound-feet more torque, which will be available lower in the rev band for better towing performance, and according to Ford, will offer best-in-class efficiency.

A new 10-speed automatic transmission will help get the most out of each engine available.

The F-150 has always been ahead of its time in technology, and is currently one of only a handful of trucks to offer a front-crash-prevention system. Naturally, the 2018 F-150 is building on its success with this safety feature by making it the first pickup with available pedestrian detection and automatic braking.
