Review and Road Test for 2018 Ford F-150

2018 Ford F-150

Review and Road Test for 2018 Ford F-150

If you think modern full-size pickup trucks are big and dumb you’re only partly right. Case in point, this F-150. It might be big but it is not dumb. Quite the contrary Ford has approached this generation F-150 as a literal test bed, switching its bed and cabs construction from steel to lightweight aluminum helping improve fuel economy and performance. Inside the aluminum body is a seriously functional cabin.

The seats are comfortable and supportive, the armrests are well positioned, even though that one is way over there, there’s lots of door storage space, and a really huge bit of storage here in the center console. Look there goes the medical tape. Up front you’ve got a couple of itemized spots where I guess I can put my wallet with more space than I really need.

Up top yet another – storage bin. The F-150 is a little like an industrial loft. It is a great place to live and work. Buyers can spec their F-150 in regular, super cab, and super crew layouts but for carrying people the super crew is definitely the play.

Legroom is outstanding, unlike the cozier super cab. A flat floor means sitting in the middle position is not some sort of punishment and easy flip up seats mean you can store your gear safely inside away from the elements and thieves, Tim.

And these channels look like they’re expertly crafted to carry, I don’t know, large shipments of wine. Maybe my mom needs an f-150. Sorry, mom. Of course cabin plushness varies by trim. The basic XL trim comes drenched in easy to clean plastic but higher trims offer increasingly luxurious appointments.

Nothing caps a hard day on the job like cooled and massaging seats…I’m assuming. Reviewing cars isn’t a real job Speaking of real jobs if you plan to haul more than just air you’ve got three choices. A six and a half foot bed or optional 8 foot cargo box come on the regular and super cab models while the super crew offers bed lengths of five and a half and six and a half feet.

The F-150’s bed is a perfectly functional space to haul stuff but it should be noted that a damp tailgate does not come standard. F-150, dropping at old school. Also, the optional tailgate step does make it easier to get in and out of the bed but this one doesn’t have it so roll the b-roll while I parkour my way into the bed.

For easier bed loading check the option sheet where you’ll find pop-out side steps, integrated loading ramps, a bed extender / divider, and a damped remote release tailgate or an assistant closing tailgate with an integrated step.

As a big capable truck you might expect the F-150’s road manners to be unrefined but that’s not really the case. Okay there are the normal live rear axle jitters over bumps but otherwise ride quality is good. The brakes feel confident, interior noise is suppressed unless I’m making my bag bounce around in back, and outward visibility is surprisingly good in all directions. A PT Cruiser! I’m so sorry.

A slow steering ratio and comparatively wide turning circle make confined maneuvering a challenge but if you’ve got the dough the option list makes nearly every aspect of driving much much easier.

Ok, not this one. All the others. And, I’m up over the curb. There’s a 360-degree camera system for confident parking, automatic Park Assist for effortless parking, and Pro trailer backup assist that makes backing up a trailer as simple as turning a knob. On top of that there’s full range adaptive cruise control, pre collision assist with pedestrian detection, Lane Keeping Assist, and blind spot monitoring that even accounts for a trailer.

Clever. Where engine choices are concerned there are plenty including an eager and reasonably efficient liter V6, a liter EcoBoost v6, a liter EcoBoost v6, and for those who hate forced induction a naturally aspirated 5 liter V8.

The base V6 features a 6-speed automatic but the rest of the lineup uses a 10 speed unit that knocks out nearly undetectable shifts.

Standard on all engines is a fuel saving automatic engine start/stop system though you’ll need to deactivate it on hot days to keep the air-conditioning working at stoplights.

To exploit the F-150’s 13,200 pound maximum tow capacity choose the liter but for less extreme towing we highly recommend the liter EcoBoost. The two-seven will tow 8,500 pounds, it costs a modest 995 dollars versus the base engine, and it returns the best fuel economy in the f-150 lineup…at least until the 3 liter turbo diesel finally shows up.

Before moving on we should mention the $51,000 f-150 Raptor whose wide track, high output liter EcoBoost v6, and Baja-worthy suspension enable unsurpassed off-road thrills.

Seriously don’t you wish this was you? For more-grounded off-road adventures non-Raptor f-150s can be equipped with four-wheel drive and an FX for off-road package.

MSRP for a regular cab XL trim with six airbags, trailer sway control, manual AC, an am/fm radio, and a backup camera with dynamic hitch assist begins below 29,000 dollars including $1,300 worth of destination chargers.

However we think the volume leading XLT is a worthwhile upgrade. It starts around $34,000 for a regular cab with power windows and mirrors, a power tailgate lock, and a six-speaker audio system featuring bluetooth and USB ports.

Budget an extra $2,900 for the Super Cab and $5,200 for the super crew. With even more budget you can nab an intuitive eight-inch Sync infotainment system, navigation, heated rear seats, inflatable rear seatbelts, LED headlights, LED box lighting, a factory spray in bedliner, and passive entry with push-button start, a feature inexplicably not offered by GM and Toyota.

Spend lavishly and you can spec an F-150 limited trim to the tune of $67,000 though prices for pickup trucks are frequently incentivized so shop around.

Given the loyalties of truck buyers you probably already have a brand allegiance but if you’re curious the full-size pickup truck field includes the GMC Sierra and Chevy Silverado twins, the RAM 1500 with its smooth riding coil spring rear suspension, the Nissan Titan with its standard 390 horsepower v8, and for resale value enthusiasts and Toyota devotees the Toyota Tundra.

Each entrant has its strengths but the Ford stands out as exceptionally well suited to the needs of truck buyers. The Ford F-150 is smart, capable, and ruggedly-styled. In essence it does all the things a pickup truck should do and it does them really well. It’s also a handy reminder that innovation comes in all sizes..

Why We Bought this USED, OLD Ford Pickup Truck for the Homestead!



Full blog post + list of used truck red flags: http://purelivingforlife.com/buying-our-pickup-truck/
Support us on Patreon: http://bit.ly/2tdla40

Before we embarked on this journey we had two vehicles: a Subaru Forester and a 2013 Subaru Legacy. We needed a reliable vehicle for farm work, building our home and towing our trailer. We ended up selling the 2013 Subaru Legacy (video on that tough decision on our channel!) and replacing it with a cheap pickup truck.

In this video we will explain how we picked the best pickup truck for our needs and why we picked this truck in particular. Read the full blog post (and also access a list of red flags to watch out for when buying a used pickup truck) on our blog here: http://purelivingforlife.com/buying-our-pickup-truck/

►Video Title: THE EGG BANDITS! – Apocalypse Rising ROBLOX

►Game Description: What is ROBLOX? ROBLOX is an online virtual playground and workshop, where kids of all ages can safely interact, create, have fun, and learn. It’s unique in that practically everything on ROBLOX is designed and constructed by members of the community. ROBLOX is designed for 8 to 18 year olds, but it is open to people of all ages. Each player starts by choosing an avatar and giving it an identity. They can then explore ROBLOX — interacting with others by chatting, playing games, or collaborating on creative projects. Each player is also given their own piece of undeveloped real estate along with a virtual toolbox with which to design and build anything — be it a navigable skyscraper, a working helicopter, a giant pinball machine, a multiplayer “Capture the Flag” game or some other, yet­to­be­dreamed-up creation. There is no cost for this first plot of virtual land. By participating and by building cool stuff, ROBLOX members can earn specialty badges as well as ROBLOX dollars (“ROBUX”). In turn, they can shop the online catalog to purchase avatar clothing and accessories as well as premium building materials, interactive components, and working mechanisms.
