Like with the 2018 RAM 1500, several engines are available for the 2018 Ford F-150. There's a new 3.3-liter V6 engine that creates 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. That engine comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. There's an attainable turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 that will get you 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. There's also a 5.0-liter V8 that produces 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.

2018 RAM 1500 Features & Design

Eleven trim levels are available for the 2018 RAM 1500. We realize that is a lot, and we will not go into detail about all of them here because we'd hate to keep you all day. However, we will tell you that the base Tradesman has cruise control, a Class IV hitch receiver and a spray-in bedliner. The next trim level up, the Express, has body-colored exterior trim, 20-inch wheels and carpeting. Both the Tradesman and Express allow for flexibility with cab and bed configurations.

2018 Ford F-150 Features & Design

The 2018 Ford F-150 offers six main trims: base XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited. If you would like a decent work truck out of the base trim then you would have to purchase it with the 101A package. If you're seeking the best balance between an everyday pickup truck and luxury, then you will have to go for the Lariat trim, and if you are on a budget but also need that trim then the 2018 Ford F-150 may not be the best truck for you.


As we have indicated above, two trucks that you may be considering for a good light-duty pickup may include the 2018 RAM 1500 and the 2018 Ford F-150.
