2018 Ford F-150 Engine Options
For the 2018 model year, the F-150 will come standard with an all-new engine. It is a 3.3-liter V6 power plant with direct-injection for increased efficiency, pumping out up to 282 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque, which is the same as its predecessor’s 3.5-liter V6.
Efficiency also comes from an all-new second generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine, which is paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission, a segment-exclusive. Other engine options include a 5.0-liter V8 and an all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine. The 2018 model year will be the first time a diesel has been offered with the F-150.
Beyond the power specs, the F-150 offers a number of technologies that are segment firsts or class-exclusives. For example, it has an available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability. On top of that, it has an available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, helping you stay clear of both vehicles and people. For connectivity, the F-150 will offer an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and a new B&O PLAY available audio system with more high-end speakers.
