Why Buy a 2018 Ford F-150
If you need to haul, tow, or hit the dirt road, you can't go wrong with a 2018 Ford F-150. The F-Series has been the best-selling truck in America for over forty years and with a recent complete redesign, it's only gotten better. The 2018 model is virtually unchanged from the previous year's model, except for the engine.
Because of its lighter frame, the Ford truck has improved its fuel efficiency, which is now at 20/26 mpg. The truck is becoming even more tech savvy, with an 8-inch display, the SYNC 3 infotainment system, cameras, and active and passive safety features. The Ford F-150 is customizable. With seven models, different cab sizes, and various trims, there's a Ford truck that meets your needs.
Is the 2018 Ford F-150 Frame Aluminum?
In 2015, Ford rolled out its aluminum-alloy, redesigned F-150 which made the body and bed a military grade aluminum alloy while the frame remained a solid steel. The change from conventional metals to an aluminum body shed 750 pounds from the truck's weight. Since steel is stronger than aluminum, some criticized the move, but fears turned out to be for nothing. The F-150 is selling well and Ford has now expanded the aluminum sheet metal to their entire F-Series line. A lighter truck turned out to be a net positive for towing capacity, as the F-150 now outmuscles its competitors. Ford trucks also do better in fuel efficiency, saving you money at the gas station.
How Long Do Ford F-150s Last?
The F-150 comes with a 3-year limited and 5-year powertrain warranty, as well as corrosion protection and roadside assistance for 5 years. The Ford F-150 is the most popular pickup truck on the market and has one of the best resale values of any vehicle in America. So when it's time to upgrade again, to the new F-150, you'll be sure to get your money's worth.
How Much Can 2018 Ford F-150s Tow?
Rated best in its class, the F-150, when properly configured, can tow up to 13,200 pounds and has a payload capacity of 3,270. If you plan on towing regularly you will want the diesel engine option for that extra torque--which debuts in the 2018 calendar year. Those who need to tow even bigger loads will want to consider larger trucks such as Ford's Super Duty trucks.
