One of the biggest additions to the 2018 Ford F-150 is its all-new Diesel trim model. While Ford has received rave reviews for the diesel engines in its heavy-duty trucks, the available Power Stroke turbodiesel engine marks the first time that a diesel powertrain has made its way into the F-150 half-ton truck. This 3.0-liter engine is constructed in-house by the engineers at Ford, specifically for this best-selling model, and can confidently produce 250-horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque for its hardworking drivers. In terms of towing capacity, most drivers in Waterford and beyond will find that the 11,400-pound limit strikes a fine balance between convenience and heavy-lifting - along with an estimated 30 highway mpg.

How the 2018 Ford F-150 Stacks Up Against the Competition

2018 Ford F-150 vs Ram 1500

  • If you’re a long-time Ram truck owner, then the addition of a diesel engine to the 2018 iteration of Ford F-150 trucks might not seem like a lot a first - but you’d be wrong. Ford has made a point to introduce a brand-new variant of its Power Stroke turbodiesel engine at a time when it can truly dominate the market, and it has no trouble doing so with a performance of 250-horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, as well as an estimated 30 highway mpg. In comparison, the diesel engine in the 2018 Ram 1500 comes up short in every aspect.
  • One look at our new inventory will show you that the F-150 won’t hesitate to satisfy a wide array of wants and needs. Both our latest Ford trucks and the Ram 1500 start with reasonably-equipped base trims, but the F-150 easily separates from the pack as you work your way up to a higher trim. Whether it’s an option such as Dynamic Hitch Assist, push-button start, or a Wi-Fi hot spot, you can only expect to find it inside of a F-150.
  • The Ford F-150 is no stranger to acclaim for its standard and available safety capabilities, as evidenced by its Top Safety Pick designation by the IIHS. These features range from a 360-degree parking camera and rear parking sensors, to adaptive cruise control, forward collision warnings, and pre-collision assist. The Ram 1500, on the other hand, is content with only a rearview camera and available front and rear parking sensors.
  • If you’re the type of driver who has to transport a crew of passengers often, then the Ford F-150 will surely win them over more with its interior comforts than the Ram 1500 is capable of. While space is certainly generous in both models, the F-150 stands out with available vinyl and leather seat materials, as well as massaging front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel.

2018 Ford F-150 vs Chevrolet Silverado

  • If you’re looking for a more budget-conscious price tag or wide variety of ways to customize your next truck, then the 2018 F-150 will have no trouble satisfying your needs. Not only does it come in under the $28,285 starting price of the Chevrolet Silverado with its $27,380 base MSRP, but it also offers a total of nine bed/cab combinations - while the Silverado only offers five.
  • The Chevrolet Silverado is well-known for its High Country trim level, which strives to be a much more luxurious spin on the modern pick-up truck. If your preferences lie in a more elegant cabin space, then you will find the F-150 Limited trim to be much more fulfilling. With leather seating, heating and ventilated front seats with a massaging function, as well as an impressive dual-pane sunroof, the top trim of Ford’s best-selling truck wastes no time claiming the attention of high-class owners.
  • In terms of performance, the disparity between the Ford F-150 and Silverado never shifts out of Ford’s favor. The F-150’s base engine is more powerful than the Silverado, and the available EcoBoost V6 engine doesn’t have a hard time topping the 355-horsepower output of Chevrolet’s 5.3-liter V8 powertrain. Even the most potent engine offered in the Silverado - a 420-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 - is topped by the 450-horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque from the powerful Raptor trim.
  • One of the more underrated aspects of the F-150 is its use of high-strength aluminum, which sheds enough weight off of the truck to make its engines more efficient. Our recent F-150 trucks have experienced this benefit from their construction with greater fuel economy numbers, and the aforementioned Power Stroke turbodiesel looks to top an estimated 30 highway mpg. The best that the Chevrolet Silverado can manage is an EPA-estimated 18 city and 24 highway mpg.
