2018 Ford F-150: Five Little-Known Facts

By -

Think you know everything there is to know about the 2018 F-150? Here are some very important (and clever) changes!

If you’re like us, you’ve poured over every little detail surrounding the refreshed 2018 Ford F-150. You’ve read the powertrain specs, lulled over the diesel leaks, and maybe even driven one. You might even consider yourself an expert of sorts at this point, but there’s a lot more to the new half-ton than tweaked styling and drivetrain updates.

The good guys at Town and Country TV are here to help. It makes sense that the guys who sell the 2018 Ford F-150 would know everything about them, and they do. They’ve compiled a list of five things you might not know about the new F-150, and slapped together a handy little video covering them all.

Fact #1

Everybody knows that the F-150 comes with automatic start/stop, but those of you who hate this feature will be happy to know that when the truck is in Sport mode, the function is disabled.

Fact #2

While everyone thinks that the side panels of the 2018 F-150 match the 2017’s, they don’t. The new front fascia blends in a little differently, which means older fender flares won’t fit the new model.

Fact #3

The final drive ratio of the new 10-speed automatic is rather aggressive. This means you can get the same kind of acceleration and towing capacity with a lower gear ratio than usual.

Fact #4

Should you choose to drive on Sport mode to turn out auto start/stop, you’ll be forced into Eco mode if your low-fuel light is on and have less than a 25-mile driving range.

Fact #5

Unlike before, when you turn the truck off and then restart it, the heated seats come back on automatically. We know this one will make lots of folks happy!
