Four Changes You'll Love On the 2018 Ford F-150


There's always been a lot to love about the Ford F-150. Now, with a big makeover under the hood for 2018, the newly-minted "2018 Truck of the Year" from MotorTrend is giving us here at Arundel Ford even more reasons to favor it over all other pickup trucks.

The 2018 Ford F-150 has a lot in common with previous model years. It comes in the same trim levels and the same multiple cab styles and bed lengths. But, there's some big changes happening under the hood.

Here are four of our favorite updates to the Ford F-150 that we think our customers in Maine will really appreciate:

  1. All-new standard engine. The new standard-issue engine for this great, versatile truck, is a 3.3-liter V6 engine. It replaces the older version's 3.5-liter V6, and it's rated for 290 horsepower.
  2. Revised optional engines. The Ford F-150 has also traditionally always had three other optional engines. Two of the other, optional engines for the Ford F-150, have also undergone a change for 2018. Both the turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 and the 5.0-liter V8 have been revised to put out more power, with the 2.7-liter V6 rated for 325 horsepower, and the 5.0-liter rated at 395 horsepower.
  3. New transmission. In addition to receiving a bump in power, all of the available, optional engines for the 2018 Ford F-150 now get an all-new transmission. They are all now paired to a smooth, ten-speed automatic transmission.
  4. Diesel option. For the first time ever, the 2018 Ford F-150 will now have a diesel-powered optional engine as well. This version won't be out until later in the year, so we're not sure yet what it can do, but we're sure we're going to like it and that our customers will be grateful for another configuration possibility.
