KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Allyson Harwood


When it comes to the battle for truck supremacy, it's down to Ford, Chevy and Ram, which are also the three top-selling vehicles in America. Ford stays at the top of the heap thanks to constant innovation that makes it easier to get work done while increasing luxury and comfort. With the F-150, Ford has the advanced design of a full-size truck beyond what its competitors are doing, including use of an aluminum body, a 10-speed transmission and tech features that make it easier to tow a trailer. For the 2018 Ford F-150, there are plenty of engine choices: a traditional V8, a new base V6, and three EcoBoost engines that deliver plenty of power for towing and hauling as well as respectable fuel economy. A forthcoming a turbodiesel V6 will round out the power offerings.

You'll Like This Car If...

The Ford F-150's best-in-class towing capacity is now up to 13,200 pounds. With the F-150, variety is the name of the game: three cabs and beds, a variety of engines (including a diesel coming later in the model year), and trims that run the gamut from a simple work truck to the luxurious Limited to the off-road-ready Raptor.

You May Not Like This Car If...

Cool options make it easier to tow or go off-road, and make the F-150 downright luxurious. But they come at a price, and the F-150 can have a sticker price over $65,000. If you only need light towing and hauling capability, a midsize truck may be a better value.

What's New for 2018

For 2018, the F-150 receives a more powerful, more efficient base engine; a turbodiesel option; new exterior styling; more power and more efficiency; expanded availability of a 10-speed automatic transmission; new safety features; and an increased towing capacity (now 13,200 pounds), still the highest in its class.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The new 3.3-liter base engine is lighter than the 3.5-liter it replaces, has more horsepower and torque -- and better fuel economy, too. It's a good base engine with enough get-up-and-go for the daily drive and carrying payload. It's not blazing fast, but it's easy to get to and stay at freeway speeds. The 2nd-gen 2.7-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6 has 25 lb-ft more torque, so it's even quicker off the line. Its combination of speed, efficiency and capability makes it our favorite of the lineup. With the 5.0-liter V8, acceleration is natural and linear. The 3.5-liter makes the F-150 fast when unloaded and a capable, stout hard worker. Towing is effortless. The F-150's SuperCrew cabin is roomy, offering excellent legroom and a comfortable ride. Suspension and brakes were designed so that whether the truck is loaded or unloaded, the ride doesn't suffer and brakes feel confident and strong.

Favorite Features

2.7-LITER ECOBOOST ENGINE
The 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine has as much torque as the available 5.0-liter V8, has the best fuel economy of the gas engines, and has the power to tow up to 8,500 pounds, plenty for a boat or RV. It's the sweet spot in the lineup and the best-selling engine.

TOWING-ASSIST SYSTEMS
When parking a trailer, Pro Trailer Backup Assist allows the driver to input left or right commands via a knob, watching on a screen as the F-150 handles steering and braking. The Blind Spot Information System covers truck and trailer. The 360-degree camera eases the task of connecting a trailer.
