Boasting the power and engineering necessary for best-in-class towing, the 2018 Ford F-150 can haul from Aurora to Naperville as easily as from Plainfield to the coast. Four engine options combine with a groundbreaking body structure to create a vehicle that tows and carries more than anything else in the segment — the 2018 Ford F-150 is a whole new breed of half-ton.

Engine Options

True to form, the new F-150 delivers a soul-stirring selection of sophisticated engine options, all of which are either new or heavily revised. 

  • 3.3L TI-VCT V6: The new standard engine brings up to a shattering 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque.
  • 2.7L EcoBoost V6: Makes up to 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
  • 5.0L TI-VCT V8: Makes up to 395 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.5L V6: Makes up to 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque as standard, or a ferocious 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque with the available Raptor trim.


The high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy of the 2018 Ford F-150 is of the same grade utilized in military and industrial applications, and it helps the vehicle carry up to 3,270 pounds — to put that in perspective, the latest Ram 1500 can accommodate a payload of up to just 2,439 pounds.

An innovative pickup bed lets you take full advantage, with available features including:

  • Configurable Box Link System
  • Heavy-Duty Payload Package
  • Class-Exclusive Remote Tailgate Release
  • Class-Exclusive Integrated Tailgate Step with Lift Assist
  • Class-Exclusive Deployable Box Side Steps


The 2018 Ford F-150 can officially tow more than any other pickup in its class, with a maximum tow rating of up to 13,200 pounds — that’s over 1,000 pounds more than the latest Chevrolet Silverado 1500.

Once again, it isn’t just raw power than helps the new Ford F-150 charge ahead. There’s also a generous array of towing features, including:

  • Class-Exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist
  • Dynamic Hitch Assist with Line-of-Sight Guide
