A ruby red 2018 Ford F-150 pickup truck from a Ford dealership in Kansas City, MO

The 2018 Ford F-150  from KC Ford dealers boasts some of the best features
available on any truck, including Pro Trailer Backup Assist, integrated
tailgate step and deployable box side steps. Read on to learn what other
qualities place this model in a league of its own.

A Truck You Can Count On

Their ‘best-in-class’ towing recognition is backed up by an
available 3.5L EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 with 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of
torque. Smart towing features include AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control.
You can even tack on Pro Trailer Backup Assist to make sure your truck and
trailer are synchronized when backing up. The dynamic hitch assist with
line-of-sight guide helps you direct the hitch to the trailer receiver. A smart
trailer tow connector gives you a heads up when there are connectivity, battery
or lighting problems. With your 8-inch productivity screen, you can get trailer
information delivered right to your cabin. Finally, a factory-installed trailer
brake controller ensures your truck and trailer brakes BLIS with trailer
coverage are synchronized. No need to worry about vehicles coming up on your
blind spot alongside the trailer! Pro Trailer Backup Assist makes driving
easy—simply turn a knob in the direction you want the trailer to go and let
your 2018 Ford F-150 do the rest.

Super Strength

The 2018 Ford F-150’s payload is considered ‘best-in-class’,
due in part to the reduced weight. Using high-strength, military-grade, and aluminum
alloy (cab and bed), this model is able to boast greater strength with less
weight. The 5.0L now comes with a direct-injection system that optimizes power
from every ounce of fuel. This magic formula gives you a power rating of 395
horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. The aluminum alloy lets engineers boost
thickness, creating a better power-to-weight ratio, enhanced fuel efficiency
and optimal payload/tow ratings. Even better, your 2018 Ford F-150 will be able
to resist dents and corrosion. The boxed frame is composed of high-strength
steel (78% at 70,000 psi) with larger cross sections than previous models. In
addition to being stronger, it’s lost 60 pounds. If you want a pickup bed that
exceeds expectations, you can add on a flexible, configurable box link system,
LED box lights, stowable loading ramps, an integrated tailgate step with lift
assist, a remote tailgate release which lets you lock/unlock and lower the
tailgate, and a deployable box side step.

F-150 Raptor

The Raptor’s new look is 500 pounds lighter than the
previous generation, thanks in large part to the aluminum-alloy body and steel
frame. Using a twin-turbo, dual-direct and port fuel-injected 3.5L EcoBoost
engine, you’ll have the world to explore. 10-speed automatic delivering, 450
horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque make this model a force to be reckoned
with. You’re not limited to roads when you own a Raptor. Enjoy extreme off-road
capabilities with a Torque-On-Demand transfer case and FOX Racing Shox with 13”
front/14’ rear travel. You’ll also get BF Goodrich all-terrain KO2 tires,
available 4.10 front axle with TORSEN differential and a giant front skid
plate. You’ll be able to handle just about any driving condition with six
driver-selectable modes (Normal, Baja, Rock Crawl, Sport, Mud-Sand, and
Wet-Snow). Plus, Hill Descent Control keeps you safe during hilly driving. The
DOHC 24-valve, high-output 3.5L EcoBoost is Baja-bred. The Raptor’s twin-turbo,
intercooled DOHC 24-valve, 3.5L EcoBoost has a port fuel and direct-injection
system as well. As far as 2018 Ford F-150’s go, this model is one to rival the


If it’s a spacious cabin and intuitive display that you’re
wanting, look no further than the 2018 Ford F-150 from KC Ford Dealers. There’s
storage in the door-trim panel bins and under-seat rear storage thanks to a
fully flat rear load floor. You can fit a laptop within the flow-through center
console. The 8” LCD productivity screen provides you with all the information
you need to keep your car running smoothly, including fuel economy and towing
data. You can access all of this from your instrument cluster. Using the My
View, Trip/Fuel, Truck Info, Towing, Off-Road and Settings menu options, you’ll
be able to stay on top of your 2018 Ford F-150’s needs and functions. SYNC
Connect and FordPass
allows you to track your vehicle’s location and remotely start, lock, and
unlock your truck. You can also schedule times that you want your truck to
remotely start. FordPass can also help you find parking, reserve a spot and pay
ahead of time. For thrifty drivers, there’s even a feature to compare fuel
prices at stations along your route. Schedule service and utilize the
assistance of a FordGuide directly from your phone.


The 2018 Ford F-150 from KC Ford Dealers boasts one of the
best truck exteriors out there. LED lighting makes your ride safe and easy. You
can add on class-exclusive quad-beam LED headlamps, LED side-mirror spotlights,
LED box lighting (which lets you see under a tonneau cover), and an LED trailer
hitch light on the tailgate handle. The hitch light makes hitching a trailer at
night it easy. Remote tailgate release allows you to lock/unlock and release
your tailgate with the key fob or the inside door switch.

Safety Features

Driving should be about more than enjoying the ride—you need
to feel comfortable wherever you go. The 2018 Ford F-150’s 360-degree camera
gives you split-view display with four different cameras—on the grille,
tailgate, and beneath both of the side view mirrors. You’ll be able to see all
sides of your vehicle by combining all your views. This is an ideal feature for
driving around tight spaces and trails. The hitch assist feature gives you a
dynamic sight line to direct your hitch ball to the trail receiver as well. With
BLIS, you’ll be able to experience the convenience of cross-traffic alert and
trailer coverage. The Blind Spot Information System gives you an alert on your
outside mirror when there’s a vehicle detected in a blind spot. You’ll have
visual coverage for both your truck and the trailer you’re towing. The
cross-traffic alert detects when there’s a vehicle passing behind you when
you’re backing out. A Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection feature
ensures you don’t hit anything on the road by giving you a visual warning on
your windshield and an audible alert if there’s a potential collision hazard
ahead. Your brakes will also pre-charge and boost sensitivity for optimal
responsiveness. When a collision is imminent due to lack of action, brakes can
apply automatically. The Lane-Keeping System is another cool feature that
vibrates your steering wheel or gives off torque sensations when you drift too
close to a lane marker. Finally, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go
technology lets you set a cruising speed and distance from the car in front of
you. It will automatically apply acceleration and brakes to maintain your
preset distance. It can even bring you to a stop in traffic and accelerate once
the traffic starts moving!

Engine Types

You can choose from several different engine types with your
2018 Ford F-150 from KC Ford Dealers. A 3.5L EcoBoost engine has 375 horsepower
and best-in-class 470 lb.-ft. of torque—numbers that beat all other gas and
diesel competition. The Fordfirst port fuel and direct injection have two
injectors per each cylinder. One is located in the air intake port and the
other is located within the cylinder. Twin turbos provide better on-demand
power, giving you a ride you can enjoy. The 2.7L EcoBoost V6 is similar, but it
also comes with upper clock and cylinders for high-strength compacted graphite
iron. The new 3.3L TI-VCT V6 has twin independent variable cam timing, which opens
and closes the valve in exact duration for operating conditions. You’ll also
have access to 6-speed automatic transmission with 3 modes: normal, tow-haul
and sport. The 5.0L TI-VCT V8 has 396 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque,
made possible by the new direct injection. The DI injects gas at high pressure
to each cylinder, creating as much power as possible. Plus, you’ll receive a
CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package for conversion to compressed natural
gas or propane autogas. You can also tack on a Snow Plow Prep package. 10-speed
automatic transmission gives you wide-span gear spacing and drag-reduction
actions and three overdrive gears.

Standout Features

A few other standout features are the start-stop technology,
state-of-the-art pickup box and off-road capabilities. The auto start-stop
feature comes standard on all models. Once your vehicle comes to a stop, your
engine shuts off to preserve fuel. It restarts immediately once the brakes are
released. This feature is deactivated when not needed, such as when you’re
towing a trailer. The 2018 Ford F-150’s pickup bed has available features like
a flexible, configurable Box Link system, LED box lights, stowable loading
ramps, integrated tailgate steps with lift assist, remote tailgate release, a
deployable box side step and a heavy-duty payload package. For off-roading,
this truck is a must-have. Shift into four-wheel drive simply by turning a dial
with the electronic shift-on-the-fly system. You’ll be able to choose between 4
by 4 low or high and 2-wheel drive. If you choose to go with the LARIAT, King
Ranch, Limited, Platinum or Raptor models, you can also take advantage of
automatic 4WD mode. With the FX4 Off-Road Package, you’ll even get electronic-locking
rear differential. This locks the rear axle for optimal traction at both
wheels. Other amenities include Hill Descent Control, off-road tuned shock
absorbers, skid plates and an ‘FX4 Off-Road’ decal. You’ll also be able to
utilize your 360-degree camera to make off-roading safe and easy.
