2018 Ford F-150 Review: The Best Selling Truck Of All Time

This year will be the 40th year that Ford's epic F-150 has ranked as one of the best-selling truck in the U.S. which outsells the Silverado and Sierra combined by 24,243 trucks last year. It's also been the best-selling vehicle period for almost 35 years.

The 2018 Ford will offer its half-ton pickup with a 3.0-liter turbodiesel, along with three V6 options and the return of the iconic 5.0-liter V8. With 820,000 units sold last year as twice the number of Toyota Camrys sold in 2016, the F-150 has proven to be just as popular with its aluminum body as it was with the old steel one.Moreover, the grille and headlamps have been improved. Also, there are new colors available, six new wheel styles, new trim colors, and, for the first time in an F-150, an optional 4G LTE Wi-Fi is offered, a feature already found in the Chevrolet Silverado. Additionally, 2018 Ford will feature, Blind-spot monitoring, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, lane-keeping assist and a 360-degree camera, all remain on the options list.

Unfortunately, Ford is not yet releasing exact details about its output numbers for these engines.The company explained that both EcoBoost V-6s and the V-8 will be paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission, and auto stop/start is standard across the lineup.

Furthermore, Ford's new turbocharged 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel V-6 also will be mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission. The diesel won't be available at release, however, it will appear shortly after the 2018 model hits the market this fall. In addition to the diesel, Ford recently introduced plans for an F-150 hybrid, to go on sale in 2020. The F-150 is the best-selling vehicle in the United States, and Ford aims to keep it that way by not getting out-optioned by anyone.
