Do you want more details on how the 2018 model is changed from previous versions of the Ford F-150? And what about features and trims that this newest version offers? Let's take a closer look at all of this and more.

You'll be able to choose from four different engine sizes with this truck, offering you plenty of options. Additionally, you can choose one of hundreds of configurations, making this one of the most versatile trucks on the market today. With aluminum body panels and an aluminum bed in place of the steel used traditionally in trucks, the 2018 Ford F-150 is also the lightest truck in its class. A Pro Trailer Backup Assist system makes all the difference when you're reversing with a bulky load. Oh, and did we mention that this model can tow up to 10,800 pounds?

Other new features on the 2018 model of the Ford F-150 include a standard 3.3-liter V6 engine which takes place of the previous 3.5-liter V6 engine. The new engine offers a bit more power and fuel efficiency. Both the 2.7-liter V6 and the 5.0-liter V8 engines have been revised and updated. Additionally, every Ford F-150 engine now has an auto start-stop feature. Styling on both the front and rear of this pickup along with an improved forward collision mitigation system has also been undertaken.

You'll have options too, when it comes to trim levels. You can select the Ford F-150 XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited or the off-road capable Raptor. SuperCab or SuperCrew are options when it comes to the cab size, and you'll be able to choose from a few different bed lengths.

Now, let's learn about how it stacks up against the competition.
