2018 Ford F-150 – Performance
BUCKLE UP. EXTREME OFF-ROADING AHEAD.
Amazingly, with stock performance and handling components, F-150 Raptor completed the 49th SCORE Baja 1000 with just basic race modifications. Beneath the hood is a high-output 450-hp 3.5L EcoBoost® engine with the Torque-On-Demand® transfer case. Exceptional handling comes courtesy of BFGoodrich® all-terrain tires, FOX Racing Shox™, available 4.10 front axle with TORSEN® differential, plus Terrain Management System™ with six driver-selectable modes and Hill Descent Control™.
10-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION
F-150 EcoBoost® and V8 engines deliver their power through an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission. Compared with the 6-speed gearbox it replaced, the 10-speed delivers improved overall performance, with enhanced acceleration at the low and mid ranges of the power band. Features include optimized wide-span gear spacing coupled with drag-reduction actions plus three overdrive gears. What’s more, you can choose from selectable modes: Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport.
5.0L TI-VCT V8
This legendary Ford V8 delivers even more muscle than ever and delivers best-in-class payload. Experience robust 395 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque, thanks to twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) and new direct injection (DI). Ti-VCT optimizes performance across the entire power band to match driving conditions. DI injects gas at high pressure directly and precisely into each cylinder, extracting as much power as possible from every drop of fuel. The 5.0L offers a CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package for conversion to compressed natural gas (CNG) or propane autogas. A Snow Plow Prep Package is also available.
AUTO START-STOP TECHNOLOGY
Auto Start-Stop Technology is a feature on all F-150 engines. When you come to a stop, the engine shuts off to save fuel and restarts immediately when the brake is released. Designed smart for truck applications, Auto Start-Stop deactivates when it wouldn’t be needed such as when you’re towing a trailer or running in 4-wheel drive.
LED lighting is virtually everywhere you need it. Available features include: Class-exclusive quad-beam LED headlamps – provide bright, efficient and long-lasting illumination; Class-exclusive LED side-mirror spotlights – illuminate any task at hand from just about any angle after the sun has set; LED box lighting – helps you work at night and lets you see under a tonneau cover; LED trailer hitch light on tailgate handle – included with the trailer tow packages and helps with hitching up to a trailer at night.
CLASS-EXCLUSIVE PRO TRAILER BACKUP ASSIST™
Backing up a trailer involves navigating two vehicles at the same time – the truck going one way and the trailer going in the opposite direction. Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned pro at this often tricky maneuver, the available class-exclusive Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ makes it as easy as turning a knob. Simply rotate the knob left or right in the direction you want the trailer to go. F-150 is the first pickup truck to offer this breakthrough feature.
CLASS-DEFINING PICKUP BOX
F-150 offers not only best-in-class payload, but also a pickup bed that can be equipped to make work easier and maximize productivity. Available features include: Flexible, configurable Box Link™ system, LED box lights, Stowable loading ramps, Class-exclusive integrated tailgate step with lift assist, Class-exclusive remote tailgate release (lock or unlock and lower the tailgate), Class-exclusive deployable box side steps available on all cab configurations, including the SuperCrew® with 5.5-ft. pickup box, Heavy-Duty Payload Package.
CLASS-EXCLUSIVE REMOTE TAILGATE RELEASE
The class-exclusive available remote tailgate release lets you lock or unlock the tailgate with the key fob or the inside door switch. Release the tailgate with the key fob, too. It’s among the features that redefine the work space of the F-150 pickup bed, such as the class-exclusive integrated tailgate step with lift assist and deployable box steps.
2018 Ford F-150 – Safety
SAFETY OVERVIEW: ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL WITH STOP-AND-GO
Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology allows you to set a cruising speed and distance from the vehicle ahead. When activated, the stop-and-go feature automatically accelerates and brakes your truck while maintaining your preset distance. The stop-and-go technology can bring your vehicle to a complete stop in stopped traffic and resume as traffic begins to move.
SYNC CONNECT® POWERED BY FORDPASS™
With an available SYNC Connect® -equipped vehicle, you can use FordPass™ to track your vehicle’s location and remotely access vehicle features, such as start, lock and unlock, and vehicle status, including fuel level. You can also schedule specific times to remotely start your vehicle so it’s ready to hit the road as soon as you are.
360-DEGREE CAMERA WITH SPLIT-VIEW DISPLAY
The available 360-degree camera with split-view display uses four cameras – one in the grille, tailgate, and under each of the sideview mirrors. The system enables you to see all sides of the truck by stitching the images together and displaying them on a center stack screen. It’s useful when maneuvering in tight spaces and on trails. Also helpful is the included hitch assist feature that provides a dynamic sight line to help direct your hitch ball to the trailer receiver.
BLIS® WITH CROSS-TRAFFIC ALERT AND TRAILER COVERAGE
Available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) signals you in the outside mirror when a vehicle is detected in a blind spot – and provides coverage for the truck you’re driving as well as the trailer you’re towing. The cross-traffic alert feature can detect a vehicle passing behind when you’re slowly backing out of a driveway or parking place.
PRE-COLLISION ASSIST AND LANE-KEEPING SYSTEM
F-150 offers technologies to assist you in unexpected situations: (1) Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection scans the road ahead. If the sensors detect a potential collision, you get a visual warning on the windshield as well as an audible alert. And the brakes precharge and increase sensitivity to provide full responsiveness when you brake. If corrective action is not taken and a collision becomes imminent, the brakes can apply automatically. (2) Lane-Keeping System vibrates the steering wheel or gives torque sensations, or both if you choose, when you drift too close to a lane marker.
Curve Control uses technology in the standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®) to help slow your vehicle down when you’re going too fast on a curve.
INFLATABLE SECOND-ROW SAFETY BELTS (SUPERCREW®)
Inflatable second-row outboard safety belts, optional in the SuperCrew® model, help distribute crash force energy across more of the torso than the traditional safety belt.
REVERSE SENSING SYSTEM
The Reverse Sensing System uses an audible signal to alert you to an obstacle behind you when you’re slowly backing up. The alert sound becomes more frequent and louder the closer the vehicle gets to the object.
