Some vehicles are iconic, immediately jumping to mind with little provocation. The Ford F-150 is one such vehicle. For many of us, it’s the vehicle that comes sharply into focus whenever someone says “pickup truck.” The 2018 Ford F-150 is a wonderful embodiment of all the things drivers are looking for in a pickup truck when they head into Folsom Lake Ford, and all the evidence you need as to why this vehicle is the standard for so many drivers.
The 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine delivers incredible performance and capability. Ford brand engineering is at the heart of the engine’s prowess, with innovative features such as Ford-first port fuel and direct injection (PFDI), which makes use of two injectors per cylinder. With 325 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal, there’s a whole lot you can do.
But that’s the beginning of the story, not the end. The new 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine is all about optimized performance for everyday jobs. The twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) opens and closes the valves in precise duration to best suit operating conditions, thereby optimizing power output at every point along the performance band. For drivers who want to boost the power output of their beloved 2018 Ford F-150, there’s the 3.6L EcoBoost engine, which features all-new twin turbos to provide greater on-demand power. With 375 horsepower and best-in-class 470 lb.-ft. of torque, this engine empowers the Ford F-150 to deliver a best-in-class max tow rating.
Then there’s the jaw-dropping 5.0L TI-VCT V8 engine. 395 horsepower, 400 lb.-ft. of torque, twin independent variable cam timing, and direct injection deliver a Ford F-150 with best-in-class payload when properly equipped.
We’ll leave you with a quote from the U.S. News & World Report review of the 2018 Ford F-150: “The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in America for four decades, and it’s been the best-selling vehicle of any kind for only a few years less than that.
