Well, Ford has done it again. With a reputation built for more than 100 years of being one of the great American automobile manufacturers, Ford also has a long history of producing the #1 truck in North America: The Ford F-150. Gentleman, start your engines. The 2018 Ford F-150 Lariat is a kick-ass pickup truck that crushes the competition in power, style, design, hauling, handling, and fuel-economy.
The 2018 Ford F-150 Lariat is a beautiful piece of machinery where style meets tradition and tough meets up-scale lifestyle. It can be a heavy hauler and functional truck, or just as classy to pull up to a 5-star hotel for a weekend getaway. The Ford F-150 Lariat is one truck perfect for weekend getaways and road trips, with comfortable seating and lots of sexy, strong features.
Inside the 2018 Ford F-150 Lariat, drivers will find a fully loaded cockpit that has everything you need within arm’s reach without having to take your eyes off the road. A digital, flat-screen display controls everything in the truck, and is powered by Sync 3. This voice automated software is easy to use, smart technology, that can be controlled via simple voice prompts or by the touchscreen controls. Apple users will love and appreciate Apple Car Play, which replicates text, phone, maps, and music on the central controls when your iPhone is sync’d with Bluetooth or plugged into the USB.
The 2018 Ford F-150 Lariat is a smooth, comfortable ride. Boasting a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine, the Lariat sports robust strength and a more than capable performance. The power of the F-150 Lariat is driven by an electronic 10-speed automatic transmission. This is a replacement of the former 6 speed engine, which allows for optimized gear-spacing alongside drag reduction with three over-drive gears. 5 distinct modes let you transform your truck into an any-condition beast: Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport. The 2018 Ford F-150 Lariat easily glides up hills, handles windy
Strength and power are featured prominently throughout the 2018 Ford F-150 Lariat. For this truck, Ford constructed its first direct injection, port fuel (PFDI) with a pair of injectors per cylinder. The upper block and cylinders are made of compacted high-strength granite iron. The aluminum-alloy body makes the F-150 Lariat strong and durable, without weighing down the truck. No other truck on the road has even half of these features.
