The 2018 Ford F-150 pickup truck has been named Truck of the Year® by Motor Trend! With many new changes and improvements under its belt for this model year, the F-150 is better and more powerful than ever before. Motor Trend's road test editor stated,F It was a pretty resounding win. Nothing really came close. The F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S for 35 years, and for good reason.

F-150 XL: Workhorse

The XL is the basic F-150 work truck that can handle all of your heavy hauling.  The truck comes with vinyl flooring and cloth upholstery. A 3.3L V6 engine generates 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque, and it comes standard with three selectable driving modes, so you can customize your ride. Choose from: Normal, Tow-Haul, and Sport. Pre-wired trailer connectors and Trailer Sway Control also come standard, too, since we know you'll want to do some hauling.

F-150 Lariat: Luxury

The Lariat comes standard with a 2.7L EcoBoost® V6 engine, which produces 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which offers five selectable driving modes: Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport.
