Among Ford's lineup drivers will find several heavy-duty vehicles perfect for the tough jobs. However, there are few with quite as much brawn as the classic Ford F-150. 

When Cerritos, Long Beach, and Anaheim drivers need a pickup truck with the power, towing capabilities, and safety to get the job done, they can always count on the 2018 Ford F-150. In this review, the Norm Reeves Ford Superstore Cerritos team will show you why.

2018 Ford F-150 Performance Specs

Let's be honest, when it comes to choosing your next truck, power is definitely going to be a priority. However, you shouldn't be disappointed with what the 2018 Ford F-150 brings to the table.

While a few different engines are available across its trim levels, the F-150 comes standard with a 3.3L Ti-VCT 6-cylinder engine. With this outfit, the 2018 F-150 can easily produce as much as 290 HP and 265 lb-ft of torque.

Of course, this V6 also comes with efficiency-boosting engine start/stop technology. This feature allows your truck to autonomously turn on and off during idling period to help conserve fuel.

When you blend this efficient engine technology with a smooth 6-speed automatic transmission, the 2018 F-150 can easily maintain 23 MPG highway.1

2018 F-150: Towing & Cargo Capabilities

Now that you know how much muscle you'll have in this truck, you better plan on how you're going to put it to use. In our opinion, towing is a good start.

In the 2018 Ford F-150, you'll be able to haul as much as 8,500 pounds, depending on which axle configuration you choose. Furthermore, you'll also be able to add in excellent features like the trailer sway and trailer brake controls. These will ensure that your next hauling job is as easy as possible.

Of course, not all your cargo is going to fit on a trailer. In those cases, you'll have to secure everything in the bed. Fortunately, at 6.5-feet long, you'll have 62.3 cubic feet of extra cargo room to make use of.

Staying Safe with the 2018 Ford F-150

Sometimes, undergoing those bigger tow jobs or simply heading off-road can pose a major hazard. In which case, you'll want to be sure that your pickup truck can keep you protected. Luckily, the Ford F-150 has the structural strength and the technology to do so. 

Handling is going to be a key factor in your safety, which is why the 4x4 F-150 also comes with AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ and curve control. These features work together to help you navigate those trickier roads with precision.

However, in the event of an accident, you'll also have the SOS Post-Crash Alert System. These features ensure that both passengers and first responders can get in and out of the vehicle as easily as possible during emergency situations.
