The Ford F-150 series is the leading pickup series in the US, and has held that title for almost fifty years! There is no other pickup that Americans trust more than the F-150, and there are multiple reasons as to why. The Ford F-150 series has been around since 1948, but only had it’s official debut in the 1970’s. With having over twelve generations of trucks in the series, it is a dominant player in the pickup truck market. Due to multiple requests from our clients, we have decided to make a short comparison blog between the pricing of a new and salvaged 2018 F-150.

A factory new 2018 F-150, depending on the interior options you wish to have, can cost from $34,245 and all the way to $64,275. A bit pricey if you ask us, even though this truck offers everything truckers could potentially need, either for work or personal use. Below you will find a small description of each of the six engine options there are for the 2018 F-150 truck.
