The all-new 2018 Ford F-150, available now in Santa Clara, is getting some exciting new amenities this model year, including new engine options, a newly standard auto stop-start system, and newly revised styling on the truck's front and rear.

A Ford F-150 for Everyone

One of the reasons that the Ford F-150 is such a popular truck is because it comes with a plethora of options that drivers can customize to their needs.

Need a standard work truck for daily hauling and towing? Choose the F-150 XL or XLT regular cab, which comes available with everything from a standard 6 ½ foot bed, a pre-wired trailer connection, automatic headlights and vinyl flooring to Bluetooth integration, cruise control, power windows and a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.

If you're looking for a high-end lux-truck, then the F-150 King Ranch SuperCrew is the perfect option, offering a fully loaded truck with a Western-themed interior, LED headlights, front bucket seats, heated rear outboard seats, Ford SYNC Connect, automatic wipers and an 11-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Those shopping for off-road trucks in the Santa Clara area will be highly impressed with the Ford Raptor, which comes with a turbocharged engine, a special four-wheel-drive system, upgraded off-road tires, skid plates, a modified long-travel suspension and a unique interior trim.

All of these versions of the truck are complemented by the hauler's new exterior that boasts updates to its wheel design, headlamps, tailgate and grille.

A Turbocharged Powertrain

Several 2018 Ford- F-150 reviews have high praise for the F-150's new array of powertrains, including the new 3.3-liter V6, which outputs 290 horsepower and is the standard engine on the truck.

Moving up the trim line and you'll find even more power under the hood, such as a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 (325 hp), a 5.0-liter V8 (395 hp) and a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 (375 hp). The standard 3.3L V6 is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the other three powertrains are rounded out by a very efficient 10-speed automatic.

Available RWD and 4WD systems depend on which engine you choose, so ask your salesperson to guide you to the perfect truck for your needs!

High-Tech Safety Systems

Alongside the standard airbags, anti-lock brakes and trailer sway control on the 2018 Ford F-150 in Santa Clara, the truck also comes available with a host of fantastic high-tech safety features, such as:

  • A 360-Degree Camera
  • Blind-Spot Monitoring
  • Lane-keeping Assist
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection

New this year is the aforementioned adaptive cruise control with automatic stop-start, which uses radar technology to monitor surrounding traffic and can even follow traffic down to a total stop.
