2018 Ford F150 XLT Supercab Exterior & Interior Walkaround
lascoford.com

Ford engineers work to make the F-150 pickup better every year and push the competition to try to keep up on the performance front. There are five engine choices, naturally aspirated and turbocharged, including the awesome high-output 3.5L EcoBoost® in the Baja-bred F-150 Raptor. Auto Start-Stop Technology is on all engines. And more engines feature the segment-exclusive* 10-speed automatic. Even bigger F-150 news coming down the road is the new 3.0L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel (available spring 2018) built for severe-duty service, performance and durability.

Not satisfied with the high power ratings of their 3.5L EcoBoost® , Ford engineers designed the second generation of this potent EcoBoost with even higher ratings of 375 horsepower and best-in-class* 470 lb.-ft. of torque, beating out all gas and diesel competitors. This engine delivers the F-150 max best-in-class* tow rating too. Big improvements: Fordfirst port fuel and direct injection (PFDI) with two injectors per cylinder—one in the air intake port and another inside the cylinder—to improve power and efficiency. All-new twin turbos for greater on-demand power. A more responsible plus high-end-efficient 10-speed transmission.

How does the 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 deliver impressive robust performance and capability?* The answer: features like Ford-first port fuel and direct injection (PFDI) with two injectors per cylinder (one in the air intake port, another inside the cylinder), plus upper block and cylinders made of the high-strength compacted graphite iron used in the Super Duty® 6.7L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel. And as for strength, the 2.7L EcoBoost powered an aluminum-alloy body F-150 prototype that competed in the 2013 Baja 1000, finishing the race with needing just an air filter replacement. Afterwards, engineers drove that street-legal F-150 back to Michigan.

With responsive power and capability,* the new 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 can handle the demands of everyday jobs. The twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) opens/closes the valves in precise duration to suit operating conditions, so power output is optimized at every point across the performance band. The 3.3L also has the Ford-first port fuel and direct-injection system (PFDI): two injectors per cylinder, one mounted in the air intake port and another positioned inside the cylinder. The 6-speed automatic transmisssion has three selectable modes to suit the driving condition: Normal, Tow-Haul, and Sport.

This legendary Ford V8 delivers even more muscle than ever and delivers best-in-class* payload. Experience robust 395 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque, thanks to twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) and new direct injection (DI). Ti-VCT optimizes performance across the entire power band to match driving conditions. DI injects gas at high pressure directly and precisely into each cylinder, extracting as much power as possible from every drop of fuel. The 5.0L offers a CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package for conversion to compressed natural gas (CNG) or propane autogas.** A Snow Plow Prep Package is also available.

The Baja-bred F-150 Raptor is perfectly at home on a typical paved road. But going from mild to wild on the most unforgiving terrain – now we’re in territory where the Raptor excels with its extraordinary capability, beginning with raw power. Unique to the Raptor is a twin-turbo, intercooled DOHC 24-valve, 3.5L EcoBoost® with port fuel and direct-injection system and 10-speed automatic. This high-output EcoBoost generates more power than the previous 6.2L V8 – a massive 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.

F-150 EcoBoost® and V8 engines deliver their power through an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission. Compared with the 6-speed gearbox it replaced, the 10-speed delivers improved overall performance, with enhanced acceleration at the low and mid ranges of the power band. Features include optimized wide-span gear spacing coupled with drag-reduction actions plus three overdrive gears. What’s more, you can choose from selectable modes: Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport.

Auto Start-Stop Technology is a feature on all F-150 engines. When you come to a stop, the engine shuts off to save fuel and restarts immediately when the brake is released. Designed smart for truck applications, Auto Start-Stop deactivates when it wouldn’t be needed such as when you’re towing a trailer or running in 4-wheel drive.

      Chrome to me, it looks tough! Not luxurious. It's what was on all the trucks stretching back to forever ago! Colored painted grills and bumpers looks like plastic, not tough. It's sporty too, it's a truck, it's not supposed to be sporty!

      At 35k, I was considering a new tacoma but this truck definitely offers more for the same price. Glad I looked before I went out and picked up a Tacoma.

      On 2018 do you get drive modes on a column shifter model? Referring to eco, sport, wet/snow modes. I noticed it on a test drive with a center stack shifter but unsure if it comes on a column shift. Thanks for any help

      I still like how that clamshell rear door looks over the double cabs. most of the double cabs out there the proportions of the vehicle just look kinda funny. but it IS a pain in the ass to always have to open either front door first...

      Ford has to many levels of trim, very confusing, very expensive, very cheap looking plastic interior and the road noise is terrible.
