2018 Ford F-150 videos

[Music] I just got back from driving this 2018 Ford f-150 equipped with the new 3 liter power stroke turbo diesel v6 from Denver to Los Angeles and now we're at the test track and we're accompanied by our 2018 Ford f150 2.7 EcoBoost we've had this truck about six months and it's got 10,000 miles on it we've been keeping scrupulous fuel economy data it's rated at 21 miles per gallon combined and 24 on the highway our average is 17 miles per gallon and our best tank isn't even up to the combined number it's 20 point 6 so we're really falling short here well the diesel is slightly better on the window sticker it's 22 miles per gallon combined 25 miles per gallon on the highway on my trip from Denver I got 22 and a half miles per gallon so it's over achieved relative to the commandment number it's a pretty good result right but you know EcoBoost fuel economy is something we've had trouble with in the past and so of others so it's nice to see that the diesel may be doing that a little bit better the only downsides the diesel cost $4,000 more than the 2.7 EcoBoost and it's not available in a low trim levels the way the EcoBoost is right I can get the 2.7 liter EcoBoost all the way down to the XL and the very popular XLT this lariat is the lowest level you can get the Ford Powerstroke diesel in $52,000 kind of like the cheapest crew cab 4x4 diesel you can get the EcoBoost has 325 horsepower and at the track we just tested these trucks in the turbo diesel with it's 250 horsepower is about two seconds slower 260 and almost nine miles per hour slower in the quarter-mile and that has a big impact on towing performance I mean these are not drag racing machines but certainly these numbers that we've generated here do give us a window on what it might be like climbing a grade and you know this truck might struggle a little bit even though it's got a higher tow rate that's true but turbo diesel is a little bit more than ten thousand pounds max towing capacity whereas the two points of EcoBoost is about eight thousand pounds so there's a big difference in power and tow rating but the big unknown that we haven't even scratched the surface of yet is towing fuel economy that's going to be where the turbo diesel should shine but we'll have to test that so stay tuned thanks for watching for more videos about pickups SUVs minivans and sedans check out edmonds and make sure to click Subscribe.

Diesel or Gas? Power Stroke F-150 Faces Off Against Ecoboost

The 2018 Ford F-150 Power Stroke is the latest half-ton pickup to feature a diesel engine. Fuel economy and towing are the primary attractions, but how does it stack up against its gasoline-fed, EcoBoost-toting stablemate? We took Power Stroke- and EcoBoost-equipped F-150s to the test track to get a better idea of their strengths and weaknesses.

Ford F-150 vs. the competition

2018 Chevrolet Silverado

2018 Chevrolet Silverado

Ford F-150 vs. Chevrolet Silverado

The Silverado's available configurations mirror those of the F-150's, minus a specialized off-road variant. While the Ford has aluminum body parts and high-tech turbocharged engines, the Chevy's more traditional construction and three available V8s may be more attractive to some truck shoppers. We like the F-150 more, but choosing between the two could simply come down to brand preference.

Compare Ford F-150 & Chevrolet Silverado features

Ford F-150 vs. Toyota Tacoma

The Tacoma is a smaller pickup than the F-150. It has fewer available configurations and starts at a lower price. Its smaller size and user-friendliness make it a solid choice if you want a more urban-friendly truck. Alas, Toyota's entertainment system lacks the speed and phone integration of Ford's Sync, and it's ultimately not as capable as the F-150 for towing and hauling.

Compare Ford F-150 & Toyota Tacoma features

Ford F-150 vs. Toyota Tundra

Relative to the F-150, the Tundra is available in fewer configurations, so you can't specialize as much in the ordering process. But that simplicity could make deciding on a model easier. The Tundra hasn't received a significant update in years, so it lags behind the F-150 when it comes to features and overall capabilities.

More about the 2018 Ford F-150

The 2018 Ford F-150 pickup is the Big Kahuna, the top of the food chain and the king of all it surveys. The F-Series trucks have been the best-selling new vehicle in the world for decades, and Ford is determined to keep that record.

Buyers don't want a truck that doesn't meet their needs. So the F-150 is available as everything from a stripped-down, regular-cab work truck that's built to take decades of hardworking abuse up to a four-door crew cab loaded with technology and luxury. Some of that technology is neat stuff, including a trailer backup assist system that allows you to precisely pilot the truck by using a single knob when towing a trailer. The Sync 3 information, navigation and entertainment system works intuitively and rapidly.

When lavishly equipped, it may be that the F-150 is the most luxurious vehicle that Ford has ever sold. But the signature feature of this F-150 is its aluminum body, which knocks curb weight down to the lowest in the class.

Under the hood, a new standard V6 engine makes its debut for 2018. A slightly smaller V6 than the one it replaces, the new 3.3-liter engine makes more power and torque than its predecessor. With three V6 engines, a big V8 and a 10-speed automatic transmission widely available throughout the lineup, the F-150 is as efficient as it is brawny.

Meanwhile, the F-150 Raptor wins over off-road enthusiast drivers with its unique suspension and distinctive look. Powered by a high-output version of the EcoBoost V6, the Raptor is wilder and more powerful than the old Raptor. But expect the Raptor — the Ferrari of factory off-road trucks — to remain in short supply.

Full-size trucks are available in so many variations, with so many available options, that just comprehending the breadth of possibilities can be mind-boggling. But never fear: Edmunds is here to help you select the 2018 Ford F-150 that's just right for you.
