2018 Ford F-150 vs 2018 GMC Sierra
The Ford F-150 has long been at the pinnacle of the truck industry in regards to capability, durability, innovation, and style and the 2018 model is no different. With its high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body, the 2018 F-150 is redefining the definition of tough. Other trucks claim to be tough by using heavy components, but the 2018 F-150 is able to provide greater strength by heat-treating the aluminum alloy used in its cab and bed to provide drivers with the ultimate in strength and durability. Using aluminum-alloy also makes the 2018 F-150 lighter than other trucks. 700 pounds lighter than the previous version of the F-150, to be exact. This creates a greater power-to-weight ratio, enhanced fuel efficiency, and a higher maximum towing a payload rating.
Providing all that power is a host of engine options, including an all-new diesel engine for the Ford F-150. Because of all these engine options, you'll be able to build a F-150 that's exactly as powerful and efficient as you need it to be. Each of the engines featured on the 2018 F-150 boasts Auto Start-Stop Technology. This allows the engines to turn completely off when you come to a complete stop. As soon as you take your foot off the brake and move to the accelerator, the engine will instantly and seamlessly turn back on so you don't waste any fuel waiting for the light to turn green. Before we go on about the 2018 F-150, let's take a look at how it stacks up with the 2018 GMC Sierra.
