2018 Ford F-150 Review

If you need a trusty pickup truck when working in the Raytown, Lee's Summit, and  Blue Springs areas, you shouldn't have to settle for a subpar vehicle. You work hard for a living, so it's only fair that you get a truck that works just as hard for you. A lot of trucks on the market aren't really worth the asking price, but a select few go above and beyond. Which one is right for you?

The 2018 Ford F-150 is among the best of the lot. This powerful pickup truly exemplifies what it means to be built Ford tough. Learn more about the new 2018 Ford F-150 and discover if this truck with its numerous features and impressive capability is best suited for your needs.


If you like power under the hood, the F-150 is an incredible choice. The base V6 engine already produces 325 horsepower which puts it well ahead of some of its competition. If you want to go all out, however, you can upgrade to the extraordinary V8 offering 450 horsepower which is more than enough for most jobs you'll come across.

Sometimes life calls for you to take your truck off-road whether you're traveling to a worksite or just want to take the family on a camping trip. The F-150 Raptor trim is perfect for off-road adventures. With 470 lb-ft of torque and the torque on demand feature, you can conquer all kinds of terrain like rock, mud, sand, snow, and more.


Every truck needs power, but without capability, it doesn't get much use. Fortunately, the F-150 goes above and beyond normal expectations for a truck this size. You can pile up to 3,270 pounds in the back with its massive payload capacity made possible by its powerful suspension and rigid military-grade aluminum alloy frame.

If a truck earns a best in class title, it's usually just for one feature. The F-150 has best in class payload, but it manages to outperform the competition in towing capacity, as well. Properly equipped, the F-150 can tow up to 13,200 pounds. You can maintain control of that massive trailer with the Pro Trailer Backup Assist feature which only the F-150 can offer. This grants you direct control of the trailer allowing you to turn it with just the twist of a knob.


The towing tech is pretty impressive, but the F-150 is a technological powerhouse with some of the latest in vehicle technology. There's an eight-inch productivity screen situated right in front of you in your instrumentation panel. From here you can monitor fuel economy, read diagnostic information, and more.

The SYNC® Connect system is truly state of the art. Not only can you connect your smartphone to your truck through Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, but you can control parts of your truck remotely when you're not even there. With the FordPass™ app, you can lock and unlock the doors and even start and stop your engine all from your smartphone.
