Exciting Accolades for the 2018 Ford F-150

By Emily Eppley | December 5th, 2017

With so many reasons to love the 2018 Ford F-150, it’s not hard to see why it earned awards from both Kelley Blue Book and Motor Trend. Take a look at what these prestigious publications had to say about this outspending truck and learn how this vehicle can make your daily commute more enjoyable and convenient. Come to our showroom today to test drive this truck and discover all the thoughtful details that set this rugged workhorse apart!

For the fourth year in a row, the Ford F-150 earned the top slot as Kelley Blue Book’s Best Buy of 2018 for the Truck category. KBB cites that the new additions to the engine options are significant upgrades. The new 3.3-liter V6 base engine provides enough torque to get you from job site to job site without wasting gas while still delivering ample capability, measuring in at 7,700 lb max towing. But the engines only get more powerful and capable from there so you can opt for any of the four that suits your needs best. Plus, the class-exclusive ten-speed automatic transmission is a responsive and agile truck to drive.

 

And Motor Trend offers similar praises for this pickup when they named it Truck of the Year. In addition to the exemplary engine options, the aluminum body frame and unique interior were lauded by the critics. While it took a few years for the segment to see the benefits of the change from steel body construction, Ford is pioneering the way for a lighter frame that provides all the same safety and security you expect out of your truck. Plus, because aluminum is lighter, you get a more light-footed driving experience and pep on the pedal.

The options for the 2018 Ford F-150 cab and bed are a long list of customizable options. But what stands out for the interior are the helpful tech options like the Sync 3 infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. The Pro Trailer Backup Assist lets you intuitively align your trailer using a simple knob on the dash so you can take the guesswork out of that task. Plus there’s adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, accident detection and avoidance, lane keeping assist, and all the safety and convenience features you’d expect from a Ford vehicle.
