Ford Introduces the Mighty 2018 F-150’s Power Numbers

Given how competitive the half-ton pickup segment is, there isn’t a truck-maker out there that doesn’t update their lineup frequently. The last two years have seen the Ford F-150 get changes to every engine in its lineup. The 2017 model added a new twin-turbo V6 with a ten-speed automatic for best-in-class towing at 12,200 lbs, and class-topping torque at 470 lb-ft. The 2018 truck will raise the bar higher still.

For 2018, every engine has gotten an upgrade. The 3.5-liter naturally-aspirated V6 is gone, with a 3.3-liter V6 with 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque mated to a new six-speed automatic. The rest of the lineup will get the ten-speed automatic introduced last year, and the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 and 5.0-liter V8 will now put out 400 lb-ft of torque each. That leaves us with the new turbodiesel V6, which is slated to arrive next summer. With class-leading torque, efficiency, and towing promised, we expect that this diesel unit will provide it!

In the meantime, the F-150 with the twin-turbo V6 will remain the most potent available in Canada. To learn more about this model, contact our Ford dealership in Wetaskiwin, AB as it’s convenient.
