The online configurator for the refreshed, 2018 Ford F-150 pickup is now live at shop.ford.com, where you can go and option your ideal full-size truck. Pricing for 2018 starts moderately higher than for 2017, with a base XL Regular cab starting at $28,675 MSRP including destination – a $270 bump. That model ships with the base 3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6 (normally-aspirated) with Auto Start/Stop, and a 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
Despite being smaller in displacement by about 200 cc than the outgoing base 3.5L, the new 3.3L V6 makes an extra 8 horsepower and 12 lb-ft of torque thanks to dual injection.
The next two engines in the lineup – Ford’s 2.7L EcoBoost V6, and its 5.0L Coyote V8 – have been improved for 2018, as well, offering increased power and/or torque also through dual injection. The range-topping 3.5L EcoBoost V6, now putting out 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque, was revamped for 2017. All three of these engines ship with Ford’s brand-new 10-speed automatic transmission, as opposed to the base 6-speed slushbox. You’ll have to step up to a higher trim level in order to have them, though.
Go all-in on a 2018 Ford F-150, and you’re looking at a sizable $70,595 MSRP. For that, you get an F-150 Limited SuperCrew 4×4 in White Platinum with a spray-in bed liner and all the fixins. It’s a lot of truck, for a heck of a lot of dough.
