2018 Ford F-150: This Full-Size Pickup Delivers for Texas Drivers

Arlington truck fans rejoice - the highly anticipated 2018 F-150 pickup is now available here at Don Davis Ford! This Texas favorite, already hugely powerful and capable in its previous model year, only continues to improve and build on its considerable success. If you are one of the many Ford truck enthusiasts in the Arlington and Fort Worth area, you will be pleased to hear of all the new features and engine options that the 2018 F-150 is bringing to the table.

What's New With the 2018 Ford F-150?

New & Varied Powertrain Options

The 2018 F-150 is more powerful and capable than ever before thanks to the help of two new powertrain options. The 2018 F-150 still offers three tried-and-true engines that you'll recognize from the 2017 model: the 3.5-liter EcoBoost with 375 horsepower, the 325 horsepower 2.7-liter EcoBoost, and the 5.0-liter V8 that delivers 395 horsepower and can tow up to 11,00 lbs. Brand new to the 2018 model is a 3.3-liter V6 that delivers 290 horsepower, plus the first ever F-150 diesel engine; which will be available a bit later on in 2018. If you've dreamed of pairing the legendary F-150 with a powerful diesel engine, you won't have to wait much longer - it's almost here!

Other newly upgraded aspects of the 2018 F-150's powertrain include the 10-speed automatic transmission, now paired with more engines than just the 3.5-liter option. Ten-speed automatic transmission provides you with improved overall performance, as well as enhanced acceleration in lower gears. Expanding its engine pairings brings these advantages to a wider range of F-150 drivers!

Also new to every 2018 F-150 engine is Auto Start-Stop technology to help conserve fuel whenever possible. With this innovation, you can save time and money at the pump without sacrificing any of the power and capability this Ford pickup is known for.

Innovative Technology

When you've got hard work on your plate, you want your truck equipped like a Swiss Army knife, not a butter knife. That's why the 2018 Ford F-150 is filled with cutting-edge technology, and not just the infotainment kind, but touching on aspects of comfort, capability, and convenience, too.

Maybe you're hauling some heavy loads, in which case you're sure to appreciate the fact that the 2018 F-150 has shed some weight again, this time up to 700 pounds thanks to the addition of high-strength military-grade aluminum alloy - heat-treated and hardened to maintain strength and lower overall weight. This translates to more power and payload where you need it, and combine that with the available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ and you'll be well equipped for whatever lies ahead. Drivers from Arlington, Fort Worth, and Grand Prairie, TX expect a lot from their trucks, and the 2018 Ford F-150 really delivers.

Smart Tech

Here in Texas, we pride ourselves on our work ethic, but sometimes the best way to work harder is to simply work smarter - and with the 2018 Ford F-150, there's plenty of smart tech to give you a leg-up:

  • 8-Inch LCD Productivity Screen: This available feature helps you keep your worksite well organized, displaying all your need-to-know information right where you need-to-know it - directly in front of you, prominently displayed on your 8-inch LCD digital instrument cluster.
  • BLIS® with Trailer Coverage: Towing a trailer will always take a skilled driver, but with the available BLIS® system with Trailer Coverage, Texans can haul with a little more confidence, knowing there's another set of eyes on their blind spots, including the trailer.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go: Highway driving is made a little easier thanks to this innovative available feature. Using radar and a camera, the system matches your F-150's speed and following distance to the movement of traffic, speeding up and slowing with the ebb and flow of the car in front of you, and it can even stop you completely if traffic comes to a standstill.
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection: Perfect for just about anywhere from the worksite to the city center, this available feature is able to detect pedestrians in the line of your truck, alerting you with a visual and audio cue, and if you don't react in time, it can even hit the brakes for you.

Exterior Style and Interior Amenities are Plentiful on the 2018 Ford F-150

While Texas drivers know to expect a connected ride through technology with the 2018 F-150, they can also look forward to exuding confidence and style thanks to the vehicle's overall exterior appeal. Arlington and Fort Worth area pickup fans can enjoy functional and comfortable interior features, too, in the enduring F-150.


The new 2018 model year has brought some changes to the style and appearance of this pickup, but maintains the feel of brawn and power the F-150 is known for. You'll notice that while the traditional two-bar setup on the front grille is still present for most models, those who opt for sporty appearance packages like the SXT Appearance Package will find a black honeycomb maw in front. There's also an update to the headlights across the lineup, and you'll find they're better framed in the chrome or plastic grille bars to give an imposing look.

In back, the 2018 F-150 adds more distinctive badging to the tailgate, helping to differentiate between the many different models that are available. For example, the new F-150 Lariat edition has a large, yet subtle "F-150" stamped on the tailgate, while others have a different aluminum finish.

While they may seem like small changes, each of these updates continues to fine-tune, adjust, and create more variety within the already stately F-150 lineup. You'll find many of these trucks on our lot, and we encourage you to check them out in person to truly see how they showcase the many different styles a truck can have, all while looking good in the process.


On the inside of this truck, you'll find many different finishes, including available wood and leather finishes to the paneling, steering wheel, center console and more. You'll find that not only is everything seamlessly laid out, but it's all within ergonomic reach and provides seamless convenience, too. Drivers in Arlington, Fort Worth and Grand Prairie alike will enjoy comfortable seating materials, and in the cabin, seating for your rear passengers provides ample room. If cargo is more your concern, you can configure the cabin to meet storage considerations as well.

At Don Davis Ford, we're confident that you can find a truck to meet your needs and style across the F-150 lineup. While the interior of a pickup is often not considered alongside performance and capability as a deciding factor, the 2018 F-150's looks and interior setup provide an added layer of usability, practicality, and even luxury that gives it an edge over many competitors. You'll know to expect a confident drive not just because of what's under the hood, but because you'll feel comfortable and at ease thanks to the finely laid out interior, supporting your confidence and enjoyment behind the wheel.
