The revamped, 2018 Ford F-150 pickup truck is headed to showrooms this fall, and it’s hands down the most crucial product in the Blue Oval portfolio for the automaker to get exactly right. The truck continues into the 2018 model year still with four different petrol engine choices, although all are now fitted with dual injection for greater efficiency and performance, and the base, normally-aspirated 3.5L has been downsized to 3.3 liters. The F-150 is also set to add a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 to the lineup, but not until the spring.
Ford has now allowed a few members of the media to have a go in the drivers seat, and in the video above, Roadshow‘s Andrew Krok gives his take on the refreshed full-size truck.
“It’s pretty darn good,” he says. “Whether you’re looking for work or play, the F-150 will take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’. From a ‘play’ standpoint, the creature comforts are excellent, and it’s probably the fanciest truck interior I’ve ever seen. From a work standpoint, it doesn’t matter if the bed is full or empty, or if you’re towing something or you’re not towing something; pickup is smooth, there’s plenty of power on tap, and the suspension is always compliant.”
