Power and performance are highlights of the 2018 Ford F-150 design that start with an all-new 290-horsepower 3.3-liter V-6 engine that is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission to make 19 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Drivers who wish to upgrade fuel economy and power can opt for the 325-horsepower 2.7-liter EcoBoost® V-6 that is married to a standard 10-speed automatic to make 26 mpg on the highway.
Additional power upgrades include a power-packed 395-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8, a top-of-the-line 375-horsepower 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V-6 and a High-Output 450-horsepower 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V-6 that is exclusive to the all-terrain Raptor. When equipped for towing, a SuperCrew Ford F-150 with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost® under the hood will tow up to 13,200 pounds of cargo.
GMC Sierra 1500 models counter with a standard 285-horsepower 4.3-liter V-6 engine that is paired with a six-speed automatic to make a humdrum 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. A 355-horsepower 5.3-liter V-8 and a 420-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 promise to upgrade performance for the GMC Sierra, yet fall short in terms of real-world power and utility in this comparison with a lackluster maximum towing capacity of 12,500 pounds.
