In the market for your next pickup truck? Let Purvis Ford Lincoln show you how the new 2018 Ford F-150 compares to its competitors

When it comes to the competitive pickup truck segment, the Ford F-150 has always been one of the leading contenders. In our many years of selling Ford trucks here in Virginia, the Ford F-150 has been one of our most popular models year after year. However, with significant updates coming with its 2018 model year, many truck buyers may be rightly wondering "How does the new 2018 Ford F-150 stack up to the competition?" Luckily, that's a question we're well-equipped to answer here at Purvis Ford Lincoln.

You see, we're big fans of Ford F-Series trucks just like many of our customers. So, we've done our homework, crunched the numbers, and put together a competitive analysis to show you how the 2018 Ford F-150 stands in comparison to close rivals like the Ram 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500.

Ford F-150 vs. Chevy Silverado 1500

  • For many drivers from nearby King George, VA, the choice of truck comes down to which one offers more power right out of the gate. Happily, the 2018 Ford F-150 easily wins that contest. With its new 3.3-liter V6 engine, the 2018 Ford F-150 easily bests the Chevy Silverado 1500's base engine by five horsepower, despite the fact that its 4.3-liter V6 engine is markedly larger.
  • Whether you're from Spotsylvania or Stafford, VA, everyone's looking to save money. And with the 2018 Ford F-150, you'll have plenty of opportunities to do so, as it has a lower base MSRP than the Chevy Silverado 1500. What's more, with our competitive deals on Ford truck leasing and financing here in Fredericksburg, VA, you may just be surprised by how much you can save when you shop with us here at Purvis Ford Lincoln
  • Want a little more torque out of your next truck? If so, you'll love the available turbo-diesel V6 engine on the 2018 Ford F-150, which should provide plenty of power for heavy payloads and hauling jobs. On the other side of the aisle, the Chevy Silverado 1500 lacks a comparable diesel powertrain option.

Ford F-150 vs. Ram 1500

  • If you're like many truck drivers in the greater Fredericksburg area, your truck occasionally doubles as your office on the go. Fortunately, the 2018 Ford F-150 is well-equipped to help you stay productive no matter where you are, as its new SYNC® Connect technology features an available Wi-Fi Hotspot, allowing for easy pairing of mobile devices and connectivity no matter where you are. On the other hand, the comparable UConnect infotainment system on the Ram 1500 lacks a Wi-Fi hotspot, so leaving its drivers in the lurch when they find themselves in one of the data "dead zones" around Virginia
  • Want to take the boat out to Lake Anna in nearby Spotsylvania, VA? If so, you know just how ponderous and tedious towing a boat trailer can be…but it doesn't have to be. With the available Pro-Trailer Backup Assist system on the 2018 Ford F-150, it's only too easy to maneuver your boat trailer exactly where you want it to go. By comparison, the Ram 1500 offers a rearview camera, but not much else when it comes to making trailering easier.
  • A new addition to the 2018 Ford F-150 is its 10-speed automatic transmission. This new transmission, coupled with its high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy body, makes for much smoother power delivery, allowing the 2018 Ford F-150 to easily get up to highway speed for those who frequently commute the I-95 corridor from Fredericksburg, VA to Stafford, VA for work. On the other hand, the Ram 1500 only offers an 8-speed automatic transmission.
