2018 Ford F-150 Summary from the Chicago Auto Show

Posted by: Jason Galik

The Chicago Auto Show displayed the nation’s best-selling pickup, the Ford F-150. As opposed to the 2017 F-150, the 2018 has a new front and rear styling along with advanced technologies all throughout the vehicle.


The 2018 Ford F-150 comes in 7 different trim levels, the XL, XLT, Lariat, Raptor, King Ranch, Platinum, and the Limited. All models have available features such as Ford’s Sync 3 multimedia and infotainment systems, adaptive cruise control, premium audio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and in-truck Wi-Fi hotspot.


With a starting price of $27,610, it is slightly out of my budget but it's still a truck I would love to have. The 2018 F-150 has a brand new 3.3-liter V6 engine, along with a 3.0-liter turbo diesel.

During the Chicago Auto Show, I had the opportunity to sit in one of the Ford F-150’s. A man sat next to me in the passenger seat and I asked him if he owned any sort of truck before. He replied that he had a Chevy Silverado and I asked him what he likes about the F-150. The man responded that he loved the new styling of the front and rear, along with the safety features because he has kids who drive and wants them to be safe.


The F-150’s has safety features such as a 360-degree camera, pre-collision assists with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist, and blind-spot monitoring making it a high-tech and super safe truck to drive.
