Ford's big-selling pickup truck has an all-aluminum body, which saves about 700 pounds over steel. Engine choices include a new 3.3-liter V6, 2.7- and 3.5-liter turbo V6s, and a 5.0-liter V8. For 2018 the 2.7-liter and the 3.5-liter turbo V6s are teamed with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Both are quiet and effortless, lending themselves to towing. Fuel economy is relatively palatable. In our tests the 2.7 got 17 mpg overall, 1 mpg better than the turbo 3.5. The 2.7 is also surprisingly quicker from 0 to 60 mph. The naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 is updated, as well, with more horsepower and torque. The cabin is very quiet but the ride is stiff. We recommend getting the optional Sync 3 infotainment system. The 2018 truck also gets pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection and adaptive cruise control. Diesel and hybrid versions are on the horizon.
