Lets see your New 2018 F-150

It's time to show off your new 2018 F-150's here. The new trucks are arriving at the dealers already and looking mighty good.

My new 2018 F-150 Platinum FX4 was delivered yesterday and will be detailed and ready for pick up on Wednesday. The 2018's have a new style Sirius/XM roof antenna.

Very nice 2018 Platinum and a new Shark Fin Sirius antenna instead of the puck.

I guess Ford wanted to have something for our very long deep sea fishing rod FM/AM antennas to possibly catch.

Shortride obviously has a top of the line truck with a $65k window sticker and at the other end of the spectrum is my 2018 XL longbed which I got for my 2011 Ranger and just under $14k cash. (The sticker was $30,800.) It came with a $2k option package that includes power windows, mirrors and locks, cruise, upgraded stereo with CD, and more. I removed the plastic hubcaps and painted the wheels black to make it a little different and of course the Yosemite Sam mud flaps add to the value too....

Ordered Lariat, hard tonneau now installed, Builtrite rear seat fold down kit, and a Ford Performace Oil Separator installed. Purchased a stainless dual exhaust kit with Flowmaster and need to get off my butt and install it. My excuse is I'm 73.

Great looking truck! Those wheels look great in black--just like a squad!

If you had gotten the truck in Black, and added a police push bumper and a few roof antennas, you could park nonchalantly in the U-turn lane of a busy highway for a day. You could watch cars slam on their brakes as they come around the bend at high speed...

Well, when they're racing past, mashing their foot into the brake pedal, they don't notice little details like that.

You would also have a better chance of catching up to then with a 3.5EB and being able to trail behind them for a few miles...

Maybe or maybe not....the 5.O has more HP on the top of end and it's usually not a drag race but a pursuit...even tho I haven't had our 5.0 very long I already like it better than the 13 3.5 EB it replaced.

My new 2018 3.5L Ecoboost is rated at 375 HP and 470 lb. ft. of torque which is pretty decent for a turbo V6. My truck has a lot of get-up and go with in the sport setting. At first I thought something was wrong with the transmission in the eco mode when it was skipping 2nd gear on takeoff.

You've got a decent looking truck there. As long as it serve your purpose is all that counts. I especially like the Yosemite Sam mud flaps.

I'm considering removing the FX4 stickers on the bed-sides.

Something I don't like on my new '18 F-150. The front license plate mount only snaps on. It's not a big deal but it looks as though it would be easy to steal.

I hate those decals (all of them) on the bed sides. That was one of the first things I did; remove them.
