By Wade Cleveland | Posted in F-150 on Thursday, January 4th, 2018 at 6:07 pm

The 2018 Ford F-150 is without question the most capable F-150 ever! Under the hood this year you’ll find more horsepower, more torque and more gears.

The new F-150 made of Military Grade aluminum, and is 700 pounds lighter than the 2014 model. It adds new features like Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, Pre-Collision Assist, a 4G LTE modem with hotspot (which is why the truck has an off-center shark fin on the roof, in case you’re wondering), and a new audio system.

There are also powertrain changes, which include a new base engine, tweaks to the 2.7-liter Ecoboost and 5.0-liter V8, and the proliferation of the 10-speed automatic to the entire engine line other than the base 3.3-litre motor.

It’s no secret that Ford trucks have long been at the forefront of engine power and capability. By providing an all-new engine option for the 2018, this year’s F-150 shows no sign of letting the others catch up. At Tusket Ford we know that you need a truck that is going to work every bit as hard as you do! So let’s talk about the different engine options and towing capacity available on the 2018 F-150. Each engine has been carefully crafted to provide the perfect blend of power and efficiency. That ensures your wallet will remain as happy as you are when you’re hauling materials to the wharf, the job site, or bringing your boat or ATV somewhere for a weekend away.

3.5L EcoBoost®

The second generation of the 3.5L EcoBoost engine has been designed to crank out even more horsepower than the first edition. You’re looking at 375 horsepower, ready to charge at a moment’s notice. In addition to providing a better horsepower rating, the second-generation engine provides drivers with a best-in-class 470 lb-ft of torque! All that power means the 3.5L engine helps your F-150 tow up to 13,200 lbs.
