Shifting into four-wheel drive is as easy as turning a dial with the electronic shift-on-thefly (ESOF) system. ESOF lets you choose two 4-wheel-drive modes (4x4 low or high) as well as 2-wheel drive. LARIAT, King Ranch®, Limited, Platinum and Raptor models also include automatic 4WD mode. The FX4 Off-Road Package includes electronic-locking rear differential (locks the rear axle completely for enhanced traction at both wheels), Hill Descent Control™, off-road tuned shock absorbers, skid plates, and "FX4 Off-Road" decal. Plus, the available 360-degree camera with split-view display is helpful when you're maneuvering in tight spaces and on off-road trails.
The F-150 Raptor can take on the most unforgiving terrain a truck can set its tires on. Today's leaner, meaner Raptor is nearly 500 lbs. lighter than the previous generation with its high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body plus high-strength steel frame. Power is supplied by a twin-turbo, dual-direct and port fuel-injected 3.5L EcoBoost® with 10-speed automatic delivering a massive 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. Extreme off-road capability comes courtesy of features such as the Torque-On-Demand® transfer case and FOX Racing Shox™. For a conventional 4-wheeler, off-roading like this is off limits. For the Raptor, it's a routine day of play.
Ford engineers work to make the F-150 pickup better every year and push the competition to try to keep up on the performance front. There are five engine choices, naturally aspirated and turbocharged, including the awesome high-output 3.5L EcoBoost® in the Baja-bred F-150 Raptor. Auto Start-Stop Technology is on all engines. And more engines feature the segment-exclusive* 10-speed automatic. Even bigger F-150 news coming down the road is the new 3.0L Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel (available spring 2018) built for severe-duty service, performance and durability.
F-150 EcoBoost® and V8 engines deliver their power through an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission. Compared with the 6-speed gearbox it replaced, the 10-speed delivers improved overall performance, with enhanced acceleration at the low and mid ranges of the power band. Features include optimized wide-span gear spacing coupled with drag-reduction actions plus three overdrive gears. What's more, you can choose from selectable modes: Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport.
The available 8" LCD productivity screen provides useful information from fuel economy to towing data, all right in front of you on the instrument cluster. You can create a customized home screen using six menu options—My View, Trip/Fuel, Truck Info, Towing, Off-Road and Settings — and access your most frequently used screens in one place. Standard in F-150 LARIAT, King Ranch® , Platinum and Limited.
With an available SYNC Connect® -equipped vehicle, you can use FordPass™ to track your vehicle's location and remotely access vehicle features, such as start, lock and unlock, and vehicle status, including fuel level. You can also schedule specific times to remotely start your vehicle so it's ready to hit the road as soon as you are.
The F-150 provides lots of places to store the assortment of things you carry inside the cab. You'll also find plenty of space to stow items in the door-trim panel bins and under-seat rear storage area — there's even space for a laptop inside the available flow-through center console. It also features a class-exclusive* fully flat rear load floor with under-seat storage (SuperCab and SuperCrew®).
FordPass is the one-stop app that can help you move more freely throughout your day. Here's how:
Bumper to Bumper: 3-Years/36,000 Miles • Powertrain: 5-Years/60,000 Miles • Corrosion: 5-Years/Unlimted Miles • Hybrid/Electric Drivetrain Components: 8-Years/100,000 Miles • Roadside Assistance: 5-Years/60,000 Miles
Auto Start-Stop Technology is a feature on all F-150 engines. When you come to a stop, the engine shuts off to save fuel and restarts immediately when the brake is released. Designed smart for truck applications, Auto Start-Stop deactivates when it wouldn't be needed such as when you're towing a trailer or running in 4-wheel drive.
Available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) signals you in the outside mirror when a vehicle is detected in a blind spot — and provides coverage for the truck you're driving as well as the trailer you're towing. The cross-traffic alert feature can detect a vehicle passing behind when you're slowly backing out of a driveway or parking place.
