2018 Ford F-150 in Salem, OH

2018 Ford F-150 is a New Favorite for Salem Drivers

The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in America for 40 years now, and it's easy to see why: Ford knows how to make a truck like no one else. A common sight on the roads of Alliance and Columbiana, the Ford F-150 delivers power and performance to drivers all over the country. The 2018 Ford F-150 continues this proud tradition, making for a quality vehicle we're proud to carry at our Salem dealership.

What's New for 2018?

You can never go wrong with adding more power, and the F-150 did just that for the new model year. Ford gave the 2018 F-150 an updated engine lineup; the previously standard 3.5-liter V6 has been replaced with a new, more powerful 3.3-liter V6, and the 2.7-liter V6 and 5.0-liter V8 options also each give some additional kick. Every engine now has automatic stop-start to help you save time and money at the pump, too.

F-150 Performance Continues to Impress

Like we mentioned, the new standard engine in the 2018 Ford F-150 is a 3.3-liter V6, which gives it 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Other available engines include a 2.7-liter V6 that gives 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, and a 5.0-liter V8 that gives out 395 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.

Drivers looking for the ultimate in power will be drawn to the available turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, which comes in two power grades: one which produces 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque, and one which produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. When properly equipped, the 2018 Ford F-150 has a tow rating of 13,500 pounds, and a payload rating of 3,270 pounds. The Ford F-150 will haul your gear all around East Palestine and beyond, and will never let you down.

The 2018 Ford F-150 - a Master of Comfort and Intuition

When you get a new vehicle, you expect the armrests to be at a comfortable level, you expect your seats to be well-cushioned and comfortable for long rides or bumpy roads, and you expect your instruments and dashboard to be understandable.

Sadly, that's not always the case with a lot of pickup trucks. But, the 2018 Ford F-150 we have at Donnell Ford of Salem does all that, and so much more. You don't need a doctorate degree to understand the controls, because they are well-placed and clearly labelled. You also don't need to be 6 feet 5 inches tall to sit comfortably in the driver's seat, because the seats and armrests are made to be comfortable for a variety of drivers.

The Ford F-150 is built with the driver in mind, and Ford puts a lot of common sense and innovative technology inside every truck they make, to ensure your ride is always easy and smooth.

Technology that Works for You

The 2018 Ford F-150 can be customized with as little or as much technology and features as you want. From your basic work truck, to a luxury vehicle with all the latest gadgets, there's a Ford F-150 for everyone. Some of our favorite tech features we think drivers in Columbiana and beyond will enjoy include:

  • Available driver assistance features, including traffic-adapting cruise control, blind spot monitor with rear cross traffic alert, and a pre-collision mitigation system with pedestrian detection.
  • Ford's infotainment interface, the available SYNC3 system, is easy-to-use and responds quickly and efficiently. Paired with an 8-inch touchscreen and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, and you have a comprehensive system that works with you as you go about your day.

Depending on the trim level you choose, you can add a number of special add-on features and optional packages that give your vehicle a host of features to help make your day easier, including a heated steering wheel, a navigation system, automatic windshield wipers, a 360-degree parking camera, and an automated parallel parking system.

Work Hard, Play Hard

With the new Ford F-150 maximum towing capacity ranging from 8,900 pounds to 10,800 pounds, this truck is perfect for your weekday work, and it can tow the family boat or camper for weekend fun as well. Add on the available BLIS system with Trailer Coverage, and drivers throughout the Alliance, Beloit, and Lisbon area can tow not only with power, but also with confidence.

Safety is Always on our Minds

The 2018 Ford F-150 features excellent visibility, letting you always see what's around you on the road with the help of in-vehicle technology. The available rearview camera helps you see behind you, and the available surround-view camera boosts visibility even further.

While the 2018 Ford F-150 comes from a long line of stellar safety scores, available safety features can keep you even better protected. Adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning and mitigation gives you an extra set of eyes on the road, and an extra foot on the brake. Available blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert also help you watch the roads of Beloit and Alliance.

F-150 Raptor

2018 F-150 Raptor

Specially designed for high performance and off-roading, the F-150 Raptor is a force to be reckoned with. It uses the same turbocharged 3.5-liter engine as the Limited, yet due to some special tweaks under the hood it is able to draw out even more power, with 450 horsepower and a whopping 510 pound-feet of torque. Of course, it takes more than a powerful engine to tackle tough terrain, which is why the Raptor also has flared fenders, skid plates, a special four-wheel-drive system, a reinforced frame, and special off-road tires. The world is your road in the F-150 Raptor.
