The 2018 Ford Expedition will be the company’s most powerful SUV ever, but exactly how powerful will it be?
When it unveiled the new truck at the last week, Ford said only that its new 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 would be more potent than the 365 hp engine in the current Expedition, with details to come closer to its launch this fall.
Well, a couple of days closer probably isn’t what they meant, but the numbers were briefly posted to the company’s Canadian consumer website.
Motor1.com spotted the specs, which said the engine will be rated at 400 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque, the latter a 60 lb-ft increase over the 2017 model. That puts it way ahead of the Chevrolet Tahoe’s 355 hp/385 lb-ft 5.3-liter V8, and beats the GMC Yukon’s 420 hp/460 lb-ft optional 6.2-liter V8 on torque.
Ford hasn’t confirmed the power ratings, but if they’re accurate, combined with the 300 pound weight loss that it has confirmed, they should make the Expedition a formidable towing machine.
This could also bode well for 2018 F-150 buyers, as the two trucks are closely related and the pickup is getting an overhaul for 2018, with details to come closer to its launch this fall.
Perhaps much closer.

The Ford F-150 is refreshed for the 2018 model year and finishes near the top of our full-size truck rankings. The F-150 is the most capable truck in the class, and it has a nice cabin and plenty of available features as well.Is the Ford F-150 a Good Truck?
Yes it is. Let’s start with the fact that the F-150 has the highest towing and hauling capacities in the class. The F-150 also offers several powerful engines choices, many of which deliver above-average fuel economy. Additionally, this Ford is agile, at least, by truck standards. Inside, you’ll find a reasonably nice cabin and plenty of available features, including many driver assistance options. A number of bed features make your life easier while hauling cargo, and features like Trailer Backup Assist help you expertly maneuver anything you might be towing.Should I Buy the Ford F-150?
The 60,000-90,000 people who buy one every month can’t all be wrong, can they? As mentioned above, the F-150 is a great truck, and there aren’t many reasons to pass this Ford by. If you want to comparison shop, however, some full-size trucks measure up well.
The Chevrolet Silverado comes close to matching the F-150’s capabilities, and it also has a comfortable cabin and plenty of tech features. The Ram 1500 has arguably the nicest cabin in the class, and it delivers an extremely smooth ride, though it’s less capable than the F-150.We Did the Research for You: 31 Reviews Analyzed
Our reviews are based on a combination of professional test driver opinions and data like crash test and reliability ratings. We studied 31 Ford F-150 reviews for this overview.
The 2018 Ford F-150 is part of a generation that began with the 2015 model year. It’s been refreshed for 2018, with updated powertrains and styling, but there haven’t been wholesale changes since its 2015 redesign. As a result, this review uses applicable research and data from the 2015 through 2018 model years.Why You Can Trust Us

Our reviews are unbiased. To keep them that way, we don't accept expensive gifts or trips from automakers, and a third party handles all advertising on our site.How Much Does the Ford F-150 Cost?
The Ford F-150 has a base price of $27,380, which is lower than most full-size trucks’ starting prices. However, that’s for the base trim, which has few features. If you want the F-150 for something other than a work truck, you’re talking about a starting price of $32,970 for the XLT trim.
There are several higher trims, and there are some big jumps in price. The popular Lariat trim starts at about $40,700, and the high-performance Raptor costs nearly $50,000. For the highest trim in the lineup – the Limited – you’re looking at a starting price north of $60,000. That’s high, but there are other full-size trucks with similarly expensive top trims.

The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is another truck that offers several powerful engine choices, ranging from its base V6 up to a 6.2-liter V8. The Silverado has an excellent towing capacity (12,500 pounds), but it’s still 700 pounds short of the F-150’s. The Chevy can’t match the Ford’s fuel economy either, though it’s close. Inside, the Silverado features a quiet, upscale cabin, and higher trims are extremely nice. The seats are comfortable and roomy in both rows, and the infotainment system is user-friendly. The Chevrolet is a great truck, but so is the Ford – the F-150 is just a little more well-rounded.Which Is Better: Ford F-150 or Ram 1500?
The Ram 1500 has the lowest starting price in the class, and its higher trims cost less than the F-150’s. The Ford is much more capable, with a max towing capacity that's more than 2,500 pounds higher than the Ram’s. However, the Ram delivers probably the smoothest ride in the class, which definitely counts for something. The Ram also offers a turbodiesel engine that’s more fuel-efficient than any F-150 engine, though Ford will introduce a turbodiesel for the F-150 later this year. The Ram has one of the nicest cabins in the class, featuring high-end materials even in its lower trims. The Ram’s seats are comfortable, and the rear seats have plenty of legroom. Its Uconnect infotainment system is incredibly easy to use as well. These two trucks bring different things to the table. The Ram 1500 has a more comfortable cabin and better ride quality, but the F-150 can tow heavier loads.F-150 Performance F-150 Engine: Give Yourself an EcoBoost
The F-150’s base engine is a 290-horsepower V6 that’s perfectly adequate. However, Ford offers two turbocharged V6s (known as EcoBoost engines in Ford’s parlance) that get comparable fuel economy but deliver more power and better acceleration. The larger EcoBoost engine – the 375-horsepower option – is also the best engine for towing.
There's a 395-horsepower V8 that delivers a great engine sound, but the most powerful engine in the lineup belongs to the Raptor. It features a 450-horsepower, turbocharged V6.F-150 Gas Mileage: Highly Efficient (for a Truck)
The F-150 gets some of the best mpg ratings in the class. It earns 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Compared to the Chevy Silverado and Ram 1500, you’ll save about $200 per year in gas money by driving the F-150.F-150 Ride and Handling: Impressive Agility
The F-150 maneuvers well for its size. It’s composed on winding roads and has accurate steering. Drivers have good visibility, which also helps maneuverability. The ride is pretty smooth, even with larger wheels, but some rivals have more cushioned rides.F-150 Off-Road Performance
The F-150 offers four-wheel drive, and it’s a capable off-roader. It’s even better with the available off-road package, which adds a locking rear differential and an off-road-tuned suspension. Off-roading is also where the F-150 Raptor shines. It has plenty of power, and it adds features like beadlock wheels to improve its ability to handle any terrain.F-150 Towing Capacity
After ceding ground to the GM trucks (Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra) last year, the 2018 F-150 sees an increased towing capacity – 13,200 pounds – that puts it back in front of the full-size truck class. It also has class-leading hauling abilities, with a max payload of nearly 3,300 pounds. In addition to outstanding capability, the F-150 offers useful features like Trailer Backup Assist and Dynamic Hitch Assist, which make it easy to hook up and maneuver a trailer.F-150 Interior How Many People Does the F-150 Seat?
The F-150 seats three to six people, depending on which cab you choose. The front seats provide a good driving position, and both rows (when applicable) have plenty of space for even tall adults to ride comfortably. The seats are also supportive, so you won’t tire out on long drives.F-150 and Car Seats
SuperCab and SuperCrew models have two full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors. The lower anchors are easy to find and use. The tether anchors aren’t so easy to find, and there’s other hardware that could be confused with the anchor points. That’s typical of what you see in pickup trucks, however.F-150 Interior Quality
The F-150’s interior is well-built and uses quality materials, but it feels about a half-step below rivals like the GMC Sierra and Ram 1500. Still, the higher trims border on luxury-vehicle quality thanks to premium features like massaging seats.F-150 Cargo Space
There are three available bed lengths with the F-150: 5.5-foot, 6.5-foot, and 8-foot. The best choice depends on your needs, though you should note that not all beds are offered with every cabin style. There are plenty of available bed features, including an integrated tailgate step, in-bed LED lights, and a system of moveable tie-downs. There’s also a good amount of small-item storage in the cabin.F-150 Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation
The F-150 doesn’t have any notable infotainment features that come standard, but it offers a twin-panel moonroof, satellite radio, a 10-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, a Wi-Fi hot spot (SYNC Connect), MyKey, and two infotainment systems. The better of the two is SYNC 3 with enhanced voice recognition, an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, and Siri Eyes Free.
The SYNC 3 infotainment system provides a responsive touch screen and easy-to-understand menu layouts. There are also several connectivity features such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and – new for 2018 – a Wi-Fi hot spot that lets you connect up to 10 devices.F-150 Reliability Is the Ford F-150 Reliable?
The 2018 F-150 is part of a generation that typically earns average or slightly above-average predicted reliability ratings from J.D. Power and Associates. That puts the F-150’s reliability in line with most other full-size pickup trucks.Ford F-150 Warranty
Ford covers the F-150 with a three-year/36,000-mile warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. Most other full-size trucks have similar warranty terms.F-150 Safety F-150 Crash Test Results
The 2018 Ford F-150 has not yet been crash tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It hasn’t been fully tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration either, though it did receive four out of five stars in the NHTSA’s rollover test.F-150 Safety Features
Standard safety features in the F-150 include a rearview camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist. Available active safety features include a 360-degree camera system, rear parking sensors, lane keep assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, adaptive cruise control (updated for 2018 to feature stop-and-go technology), forward collision warning, active park assist, and pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection.Which Ford F-150 Model Is Right for Me?
There is no shortage of F-150 trims – more than half a dozen in all. But you'll first need to decide which cab style, bed length, and engine you want, because not every trim is available in every configuration.
If you’re just buying a work truck and don’t want to spend too much, stick with the XL and XLT trims. If you want a luxurious but capable ride, the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trims are good choices. If you want an off-road beast, the Raptor is the clear choice. For many buyers, the Lariat is an excellent, well-rounded choice. It’s available with all three bed lengths, two different cabs, and three different engines, and it comes with a respectable assortment of features.Ford F-150 XL and Ford F-150 XLT
The XL and XLT are the two lowest trims, and they’re the only trims available with all three cabs and all three bed lengths. Both models feature the base V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The XL has a base price of $27,380, and the XLT starts at $32,970.
Aside from the rearview camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist, the XL has no notable features, and it’s really only suitable as a work truck. The XLT adds power windows and locks, a USB port, smartphone app integration, MyKey, and the SYNC infotainment system.Ford F-150 Lariat
The F-150 Lariat has a starting price of $40,685. It comes standard with the smaller EcoBoost engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission, leather upholstery, power-adjustable heated and ventilated front seats, satellite radio, and the SYNC 3 infotainment system.Ford F-150 Raptor
The Raptor starts at $49,785 and features the most powerful engine in the F-150 lineup: a 450-horsepower, turbocharged V6. It also features a number of performance- and off-road-related standard features like four-wheel drive, an off-road racing suspension, and a locking rear differential.Ford F-150 King Ranch
The King Ranch trim is the point where the F-150 starts to feel like more of a luxury car than a truck. It has a starting price of $51,600 and comes standard with a V8 engine, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, a voice-activated touch-screen navigation system, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel.Ford F-150 Platinum
The Platinum trim starts at $54,155 and builds on the King Ranch by adding standard wood trim accents, a Wi-Fi hot spot, power-deployable running boards, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.Ford F-150 Limited
The Limited is the most upscale trim, and it has a starting price of $60,250. It comes standard with the larger EcoBoost engine, a twin-panel moonroof, a 360-degree camera, pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection, and just about every other feature that you can get in an F-150.

The 2018 Ford F-150 is one of our highest-ranking full-size pickup trucks. It’s the most capable truck in the class, and it delivers that ability without sacrificing efficiency. It also has a well-built cabin and offers plenty of tech and driver assistance features. If you’re looking for a new truck, the F-150 is a great choice.

Our Take on the 2013 Ford F-150
Despite the ups and downs in the truck market, the Ford F-150 remains the top-selling pickup in the U.S. and has garnered various awards. The truck's platform remains the same for 2013, but adds noticeable visual changes and slight refinements to the interior. The F-150 seats up to six peop. Read Full Report

Safety defects and recalls are relatively common. Stay informed and know what to do ahead of time.Warranty Coverage
Roadside Assistance Coverage
What you should get in your warranty can be confusing. Make sure you are informed.Warranties Explained
Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.
Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.
Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).
Free Scheduled Maintenance
Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.Other Years Similar Models
