It appears you can’t avoid hearing any sort of TV, radio, Internet, or print commercial touting the Ford F-150’s stock as the top of the line vehicle in America for more than a couple of years running. Also, Ford will probably keep that streak in place with the arrival of the most up to date 2018 F-150.
First, it was the change to an all-aluminum body and bed. At that point came the Eco-Boost motor, a six-cylinder stunner that enhanced fuel efficiency and towing limit in the meantime. What we have in the 2018 F-150 isn’t progressive — it’s to a greater extent a tweaking and refining of the new standard.
Pick Your Model
Try not to state Ford doesn’t offer you decisions. The new F-150 comes in seven models with three taxi styles: consistent taxicab, Supercab, or SuperCrew, blended with three diverse bed sizes: 5.5 feet, 6.5 feet, or 8 feet.
At that point, we go to the motor. Despite the fact that the Ford line offers four distinct decisions, no doubt about it that the new dear in the rodeo is the turbocharged V-6 Eco-Boost, which initially displayed up in 2011.
There are a decent number of people out there that will never have the capacity to make peace with the possibility that a littler motor can give better gas mileage and all the more towing power in the meantime, yet the numbers tell the story. The 5.0 Liter V-8 gives 387 lbs for each foot of towing power, which lingers behind the Eco-Boost’s 420 lbs for each foot and max limit of 12,200 lbs. That makes this motor the best at towing, even with two less cylinders.
Pick Your Price
A truck like the F-150 doesn’t come empty. Fundamental models begin at $26,730. Clearly, the quantity of fancy odds and ends (trim, execution, safety, and entertainment) you add on could elevate the cost extensively.
With the arrival of the 2018 F-150 Raptor, prepare to delve considerably further into your wallet. This exceptional model is evaluated beginning at a MSRP of $48,860. That is a major hop, however Ford believes there’s a business opportunity for what gives off an impression of being the top of the line truck. We’re wagering they’re most likely right.
In spite of the fact that the new F-150 professedly best out at 106 mph (PC restricted by careful specialists), we trust you’ll never put that under serious scrutiny on any highway or byway in the United States. In the event that you have that sort of lead foot, consider a visit to the Bonneville Salt Flats. Whatever is left of us are more worried about 0-60 mph speeding up to escape a tight spot and, obviously, great gas mileage.
Safety features with the new F-150 are basically the same as of late, with no noteworthy overhauls. The rear view camera makes connecting to a trailer, notwithstanding when you’re isolated, a breeze and incorporates a visual and sound-related design that fills you in as to whether you’re going to hit something. Considering the size and heft of the best end trucks, this is a pleasant choice to have in a tight parking garage. Airbags, daytime running lights, nightfall detecting headlights, airbags, and durable headrests are for the most part standard.
Notwithstanding a stimulation design worked around four speakers, a compact disc player, and discretionary XM/Sirius radio, the new F-150 accompanies an arrangement of special elements that incorporates redesigned voice enacted bundle called FordSync. While there are three distinct stages of the innovation to browse, basically you can make phone calls, tune in to music, and select applications with your eyes on the road and hands upon the wheel. On second thought, this presumably qualifies as a safety highlight also.
As indicated by an article in Business Insider, the Ford F-150 arrangement has been the smash hit vehicle in America for a long time. That is a number that makes one sit up and pay homage. Among full-measure trucks, Car and Driver positions it number one in front of the Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, Ram 1500, and Toyota Tundra.
