The Car Guide rating 78%(view ratings)
Canada’s best-selling vehicle for half a century, the F-150 benefits from styling revisions for 2018, including new grille, headlight clusters, bumpers and alloy wheels. Aside from the twin-turbo, 2.7-litre V6 (315 horsepower), the 5.0-litre V8 (395 hp) and the twin-turbo, 3.5-litre V6 (375 hp, or 450 hp in the F-150 Raptor), a 3.3-litre V6 (290 hp) now serves as the base powerplant. A 3.0-litre, turbo-diesel V6 will eventually be added as well.
