2018 Ford F-150 vs 2017 Ford F-150

This is the most exciting time of the year for pickup truck enthusiasts. More than Christmas, more than New Year’s and more than the Super Bowl, this – the arrival of the new Ford F-150 – is the time of the year that pickup truck enthusiasts long for more than anything else.

Now, as we all know, Ford trucks are “Built Ford Tough.” And that means your new F-150 is going to last a long, long time. But that doesn’t mean you’re not going to want to upgrade. Especially since the 2018 F-150 has been fully updated, improved and enhanced in pretty much every way. What we mean by that is the 2018 Ford F-150 is more capable and more customizable than the 2017 F-150. To see what we mean, check out this 2018 Ford F-150 versus 2017 Ford F-150 head-to-head model comparison.

What are the Advantages of the New and Improved 2018 Ford F-150?

Let’s begin our comparison by checking under the hood. While the 2017 Ford F-150 lineup featured the choice between four powerful and efficient engines, the 2018 Ford F-150 lineup offers even more thanks to an all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel V6 engine. This is the first time a diesel engine is available in a new Ford F-150, and that has us all incredibly excited here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA.

That new and improved engine lineup has also helped the new Ford F-150 reach new heights in terms of capability, especially when it comes to towing. Both the 2017 Ford F-150 and the 2018 Ford F-150 can haul up to 3,270 pounds, but only the 2018 F-150 features a best-in-class towing rating of up to 13,200 pounds.
