Ford recently gave its F-150 lineup some tough love - more specifically, love that is Built Ford Tough. The 2018 lineup, which was recently announced to the delight of truck enthusiasts worldwide, fulfills the automaker's dedication to crafting vehicles that are both durable and innovative.

The new F-150 exemplifies both qualities, shining with its segment-exclusive assortment of state-of-the-art, corrosion-inhibiting materials. It also sports a high-strength steel, full boxed ladder frame and a military-grade body made with aluminum alloy. The alloy keeps the truck weight lower while adding capability, helping the F-150 tow heavier and provide unsurpassable payload ratings. (continued below)


In case any nay-sayers have doubts about its tough factor, Ford offers a variety of looks that will quell any hesitations. All of the new F-150 models have new grilles, bumpers and headlamps, creating what a Ford statement describes as "a visually wider and more planted stance and maximum differentiation between the series." Signature twin bars with customized colors are also added to the Sport Package-equipped Lariat F-150 for a distinguishable aesthetic. A sculpted tailgate and tailgate applique further embellish the exterior.

Open the doors on the F-150, and you'll notice either of the two new seating trim colors - Dark Marsala in the F-150 Platinum, and Navy Pier in the F-150 Limited. And not one, not two, but six new wheel designs also make their debut with the 2018 F-150, varying in diameter between 17 to 22 inches.
