The current Ford F-150 already provides massive towing power and is the class leader in payload capacity. Now that the Power Stroke Diesel is available at every level of the F series, the new 2018 F-150, with its diesel engine, is going to be able to deliver even more torque which translates into even more power. The diesel option also means that the increase in power won't compromise fuel economy, because diesel trucks get better gas mileage than traditional gas engines.
Speaking of improved fuel economy, the new 2018 Ford F-150 comes with Auto Stop-Start Technology. According to our source, when the truck is idling, the engine will automatically shut off and seamlessly start back up when you take your foot off the brake or push the throttle. This feature, coupled with the same 10-speed automatic transmission and the new diesel engine option, makes for a smarter and more efficient engine.
Ford already blew us away with its Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which allows you to decide where the trailer goes with just the turn of a knob. This feature is not going away on the 2018 F-150. Ford's trailering technology has actually gotten even better. The BLIS blind spot monitoring has now been extended to your trailer's blind spot when you're hitched.
The 2018 Ford F-150 has an array of features and improvements in store for its newest model: Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go Technology, LED cargo box lights for those late nights on the job, an integrated tailgate step, and more. The new F-150 Power Stroke Diesel is every truck lover's dream. Come drive one home this fall.
