There’s a roar on the horizon - coming down the Pacific Coast, shaking dunes and pavement alike. You feel the road tremble beneath you and and smile, knowing that the 2018 F-150 Platinum is coming.


Kelley Blue Book reports that Ford will soon release its new F-Series models - with revised powertrains promised for the F-250, F-350, and (of course) F-150. The entire fleet has been fused with the latest in 10-speed capabilities and all-terrain performance; and the 2018 Platinum proves to be no exception.

This pick-up will invigorate the North American market, offering drivers the robust responses they crave. Beneath the hood sits a massive 5.0L V8 engine, capable of generating 395 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque. This pairs with direct injection technology and signature variable cam timing to ensure best-in-class power (a staggering 11,400 pounds of conventional towing). The fully boxed frame rests on a two-stage spring suspension to deliver a refined ride; while custom transmission modes afford greater precision on Washington’s backroads:


Tow/Haul - to accommodate heavy loads.
Wet/Snow - to adapt to changing weather patterns.
EcoSelect - to maximize economy.
Sport - to deliver Baja-style thrills.

When these features combine, they propel the 2018 F-150 Platinum past the pick-up pack - making it truly one-of-a-kind.
