Intense, durable, and prepared to deal with whatever you can toss at it, the new 2018 F-150 is ready to build on everything its prior models got right. Straight from the start, the new F-150 aims to keep reliability at the top of its priority list. The body is produced using a rust-proof aluminum alloy (military-grade), which lowers the F-150's overall weight while also expanding general quality. The frame of the F-150 is made out of high-quality steel, thereby offering up expanded strength and an unbending nature.
Additionally, the F-150's gas motors have been reimagined, with the 3.3 liter (L) Twin Independent Variable Camshaft (Ti-VCT) V6 motor (supported by a 6-speed transmission) putting out 282 horsepower (hp) and 253 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. The new 2.7 L EcoBoost V6 now accompanies a twin injection framework and is paired up with a 10-speed transmission. The 3.5 L EcoBoost V6, a continuation from last year's model, offers up 375 hp and 4670 lb-ft of torque.
The new F-150 gives you all that anyone could need to both haul your friends and family and whatever else you may require for a few days of work or fun in Bismarck. With the 5.5-inch Styleside Box, you get 52.8 cubic feet of volume. The 6.5-inch Styleside Box has 62.3 cubic feet of volume, and the 8-inch Styleside Box gives to you 77.4 cubic feet of freight capacity. You can accomplish more with your truck bed via the accessible BoxLink add-on (which includes four locking cleats) and also the portable and convenient bed extender. On the off chance that you need to shield your truck bed from rust, scratches, and other abrasions, a bedliner that is sprayed into the bed of your favorite F-150 is also an idea to consider.
Towing ability with the F-150 is nothing to scoff at either. Depending on which motor package you choose, this truck can tow from between 8,500 pounds (lbs) to 12,200 lbs. Two towing packages (Trailer Tow and Maximum Trailer Tow) can make pulling a far easier affair, and industry-leading inclusions, like the rear-view camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist, make it less demanding to adjust the tow ball of the hitch to your trailer. Ford's reverse sensing system guarantees that you are told in the event that anything crosses your way while you back up, and the trailer sway control function assists with speed and braking to guarantee that you can continue pulling heavy loads without even the slightest problem.
The extra security inclusions in the new F-150 have what it takes to give you the peace of mind you deserve when you take to the roads and highways of Bismarck. The AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control framework works by identifying any wheel-slippage and changing motor torque to resolve the issue before it becomes a major problem. AdvanceTrac likewise accompanies Curve Control, which identifies when you go into a bend a little too quickly and will alter your speed as needed. The Safety Canopy System, which gives you extra airbags via side-curtain add-ons to the standard front seat and side front seat airbags, also utilizes a powerful and accurate rollover sensor.
In the event that you are not the only individual driving your vehicle around Bismarck, you may be keen on using the MyKey feature. This cool new tech feature gives you a chance to incorporate different program modes to various keys within your household, thereby promoting safe driving practices and giving you greater control of each user's time spent behind the wheel.
Just because the F-150 can be utilized as a workhorse, that does not mean that it can't be stylish as well. With up to 14 options for exterior paint (certain model restrictions apply), seven inside color options, and Chrome and Sport bundles, you can alter your F-150 anyway you desire. Upgrade the inside appearance with first class technological innovation – standard in the XL 101A and XLT models is a 4.2-inch color LCD screen, and in the Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited, and Raptor models, you will find an 8-inch color LCD screen instead. The 8-inch screen additionally gives you access to a bevy of other features, including SYNC 3, 911 Assist, and AppLink.
