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.

    Not quite. I thought that maybe Ford had gone the way of GM by locking out too many combinations with the lower-trimmed truck, but it looks like I can still configure a standard cab, 2.7 Ecoboost, but now with a 10-speed and come in at $29,670 including destination, and that’s with no current incentives, and that’s only because the truck is not for sale yet.

    So hooray Ford for letting customers get advanced power trains without all that luxury crap and stay under $30K.
