Plus class exclusive pre-collision assist and adaptive cruise control make the F-150 safer than ever. There's a reason why the Ford F-150 has been America's best-selling vehicle for more than 40 years: there's simply nothing better. So visit Stark County's locally owned and operated truck experts to see this great new Ford F-150 for yourself. 
Best in Class
If you want the truck with best in class fuel economy, best in class towing or best in class payload, then we have a Ford truck for you. 
Start with the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine. It reaches a best in class 22 combined city/highway miles per gallon. With advanced dual port and direct-injection technology, the second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine delivers a 25 lb.-ft. increase in torque – and at lower engine speeds compared to a traditional V8. 
The 2.7L EcoBoost is paired with the Ford exclusive 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. 
But let's say you have a boat or trailer and towing is more important than fuel economy. You're in luck, because the Ford F-150 with a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 delivers 13,200 pounds of towing capacity. That's best in class, beating out all diesel- and gasoline-powered competitors, including V8 engines with nearly twice its displacement. With dual port and direct-injection technology, the 375-horsepower twin-turbo engine provides ideal low-end and peak engine performance for hauling heavy payloads and towing heavy trailers.
Ford can also boast the top payload capacity thanks to the 5.0L V8. Payload capacity of 3,270 pounds is reached with upgrades for 2018 including advanced dual port and direct-injection technology for 10 more horsepower and an additional 13 lb.-ft. of torque. Spray-on bore liner technology also featured in the Shelby GT350® Mustang has been added to squeeze out even more weight from the aluminum block. For the first time, the V8 is paired with the 10-speed SelectShift automatic.
The standard 3.3L V6 is all-new, and it’s more efficient, powerful and delivers more torque that your previously standard 3.5L V6. The 3.0L Power Stroke turbo diesel V6 paired with a 10-speed SelectShift automatic joins the 2018 Ford F-150 lineup as well. The first diesel F-150 will be available in Spring 2018. 
Segment Exclusive Materials and Technology
The Ford F-150 is a one of a kind vehicle that offers things no one else does. This year's F-150 is the first light-duty pickup with optional adaptive cruise control. All you do is set a cruising speed, and radar and camera technology monitors traffic ahead to maintain a set distance between vehicles -- even following a vehicle down to a complete stop. 
New Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection does exactly what is says it will. Those radar and camera technologies automatically detect danger, and your truck will slow down and apply the brakes if a possible collision with a car or pedestrian may happen. 
The F-150 helps you stay connection with an optional 4G LTE modem and Wi-Fi hotspot. You can connect up to 10 mobile devices at once, so it's the perfect truck for those who work long hours at remote job sites. 
Improvements to the speakers and entertainment system give you a richer, more engaging listening experience. 
The Ford F-150 is still the only truck available with the Pro Trailer Backup Assist option. This is the easiest way to hook a trailer to the truck. All you need to do is rotate the knob left or right in the direction you want the trailer to go, and the truck will do the rest.
Optional Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) signals you in the outside mirror when a vehicle is detected in the blind spot. It can also detect a vehicle passing behind you when you're slowly backing out of a driveway or parking space. 
The optional 360-degree backup camera makes moving your truck out of a tight space easier than ever. Instead of the traditional backup camera that just shows what's happening behind you, this camera gives you the full birds-eye view of everything happening in front, behind and to the sides of your pickup.
