2018 Ford F-150 Video Review -

Any time the No. 1-selling pickup truck makes a change it's news, even a mid-model refresh. Yes, it was bigger news when the 2015 Ford F-150 moved from steel to aluminum body panels, then got packed with a mountain of safety and performance technology, but there's still a significant amount of news in the 2018 model that's worthy of attention.

No doubt some wanted more change and it is a little disappointing we won't be seeing the baby Power Stroke for another year and a half, but overall we think that giving buyers more options to customize the look of their truck with a mix-and-match approach to grille designs is a pretty good idea. Whether the tailgate stamp or tire-tread seat design works is another matter.

The 2018 debuted at the 2017 North American Auto Show in Detroit, where we were able to get a closer look. Check out the video below. And, yes, we misidentified the 2018 F-150 to have four engines; of course, it has five: base level 3.3L V-6, 2.7L EcoBoost V-6, 3.5L EcoBoost V-6, 3.0L TD V-6, and 5.0L V-8. images by Mark Williams
