Raptor is not a smart vehicle

by Raptor hater from East Rochester, New York | January 17, 2020

For a smart vehicle, this one is retarted. I have numerous complaints, perhaps petty, but today is the clincher. It’s cold out and my locks have frozen. My fob is unlocking the vehicle, but the knob will not go up so it remains locked. I remote started the motor and left it running but it is not unlocking. I even used the master physical key in the lock, it turns and the door handle seems open but the button will not go up so it remains locked. I have sprayed wd40 in it, still locked. I heated the key with a lighter and tried it, still locked. It’s not even that cold outside and I’m stuck. My wallet is even in the truck so I’m in a bind right now. Paid $70,000 for this truck and it is having some serious issues, I am not impressed whatsoever

Fun to drive

by Eugene from San Diego | January 14, 2020

This is a great vehicle with the 3.5L ecoboost engine. I can't complaint about the performance of the car. Driving the car I don't feel I am driving the truck.

2018 Ford F-150 Overview

Ford always has had a tricky task when updating the F-150, as it’s the most popular vehicle in the country by saless. So when it's time to update the half-ton pickup truck, Ford's only willing to go so far for fear of alienating those millions of loyal buyers.
New for 2018
The last big change was a drastic one in 2015 when the F-150 went to an almost entirely aluminum body. Since then, there have been some minor updates to the powertrain. For the 2018 model, we've seen the biggest styling change to the truck since the 2015 redesign. Some of these design changes are meant to bring the F-150 more stylistically in line with the look of the new 2017 Super Duty.

There are new grille designs for each of the F-150's seven trim levels; higher trims get the "twin I-beam" design and lower trims and some Sport packages get a large mesh opening with "nostrils." But even these seven designs can be modified with paint and coatings to create much greater differentiation between trim levels. Enthusiasts will likely amuse themselves by learning the different ones and playing "spot the Platinum" when these trucks hit the streets in the fall.

At the rear of the truck, there's a massive new F-150 logo stamped into the tailgate sheet metal on lesser trim levels, probably a nod to Toyota and Ram, which have been stamping nameplates and huge logos on tailgates for a couple years now. On Lariat and higher trim levels, that stamped logo is replaced by a plastic applique trim piece. The F-150 logo was removed for those trims, a Ford designer said, because it looked too busy with the applique and trim level script.

There isn't much to talk about inside, as the only visual changes are the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the Sync 3 multimedia system, some new leather colors on the higher trims, new seats for the King Ranch and a new B&O Play premium audio option.

As to the new additions under the hood, we're stoked. However, we'll have to wait a bit longer to see just what kind of improvements the new powertrains will feature. The all-new base 3.3-liter naturally aspirated V-6 seems small for a truck this size, but Ford insists that it's an advanced engine with the same power and torque as the outgoing 3.5-liter V-6, but with better fuel economy. The one we all want to drive is the new turbo-diesel 3.0-liter, but that's not arriving until nearly nine months after the 2018 F-150 hits dealerships in fall of 2017.
