2018 Ford F-150 Comes with Updated Power and Performance

Ford has always given their F-150 drivers a range of choices for engines. Now, with the 2018 model, those choices have all been updated and revised, and Ford is releasing a brand-new diesel option. The list of available engines now includes:

  • On previous Ford F-150 trucks, the standard engine was a 3.5-liter V6. Now, starting in 2018, the standard engine will instead be a 3.3-liter V6. Ford promises it will be more powerful, rating at 290 horsepower with 265 pound-feet of torque, and more fuel efficient. It comes paired to a six-speed automatic transmission
  • A revised, optional turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 rated for 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque that now comes paired to a ten-speed automatic transmission
  • An available 5.0-liter V8, upgraded to 395 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, and paired to the new ten-speed automatic
  • A 3.5-liter V6, available with either 375 horsepower or 450 horsepower, and paired to the new ten-speed
  • The headline-grabbing, brand-new, 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V6

2018 Ford F-150 Interior and Configurations

Despite all the major changes under the hood, fans of the Ford F-150 in the Thousand Oaks and Moorpark area will be happy to see the carmaker has left the existing interior cabin intact. The F-150 was already made with high-level materials and insulated for a quiet ride, and that hasn't changed.

Ford gives F-150 drivers the choice between six different trim levels, several bed lengths, and a few different cab styles. Configurations include:

  • The regular cab, with two doors, which can be had with either a standard sized bed or a long bed
  • A SuperCab, which is extended, but has smaller doors in the rear, and comes with either the standard bed or extended length
  • The SuperCrew, the four-door crew cab, which comes with either a short bed or the standard bed

2018 Ford F-150 Safety and Technology Features

As with all vehicles made by Ford, the 2018 F-150 has a long list of features available that are designed to make your life easier, entertain you, and keep you safe. Which of these amenities your F-150 comes with depends on your choice of trim, but some of our Simi Valley Ford favorites to be on the lookout for include:

  • Ford's MyKey safety parental controls for teen drivers
  • Automatic headlights
  • Keyless keypad entry system
  • Surround-view system of cameras
