In 2015, Ford Motors took a risk. The company gambled over $1 billion to overhaul its existing steel designs in favor of new aluminium bodies for the 2015 Ford F150 truck. Ford claimed that this new design would allow the new F150 to shed an estimated 700 pounds in weight from previous models, and would also lead to a number of other benefits, including improved fuel economy, increased towing capacity, improved power-to-weight ratios, and a significantly more rust-resistant design overall. While many of these claimed benefits did come to fruition in the 2015 model, it was not until 2018 that the innovative Ford F150 truck truly hit its stride. Combining state-of-the-art design features with industry-leading performance and reliability, the 2018 Ford F150 may be just be the best truck from Ford yet — and it’s the unanimous winner of Motor Trend’s 2018 Truck of the Year. To quote Motor Trend’s Chief Test Editor, Chris Evans: “It was a pretty resounding win. Nothing really came close.” At Sea Breeze Ford, we are proud to announce our full line of 2018 Ford F150 trucks available to buy now from our trusted Wall Township, NJ, dealership. Read on to learn more about why Motor Trend unanimously awarded the coveted Truck of the Year award to the 2018 Ford F150, and get behind the wheel of this winner here at Sea Breeze Ford today!
An industry-leading line: Excellence in every model
The 2018 Ford F150 truck line features seven models — the XL, XLT, LARIAT, Raptor, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited — four of which (the XLT, LARIAT, Platinum and Raptor) were put to the test by Motor Trend. Base-level 4×2 XL and XLT models feature a 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine with a six-speed transmission and the Ford-first port fuel and direct inject system. This best-in-class engine produces 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Motor Trend test editors noted the ease with which the 3.3L’s towed loads in excess of 5,000 lbs. The 3.3L-equipped XL and XLTs boast the F150 line’s second-best gas mileage ratings at 19/25 mpg in city/highway.
The 4×4 LARIAT features a 2.7L twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 engine, which produces 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque and bumps up the 3.3L-equipped vehicles’ gas mileage by 1 in the city and on the highway. (Drivers can also opt for the for the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine.) On the 4×4 Platinum, the 2.7L V-6 engine is upgraded to a 5.0L Ti-VCT V-8, which boasts a robust 395 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. For those who need to haul large loads, the Platinum is the right call.
Drivers looking for a sleeker pickup might opt for the Raptor, which features 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine generating 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque. More importantly, as Motor Trend notes, the Raptor “does 0–60 mph in 6 seconds flat and can do a burnout with a trailer attached.” That’s Truck of the Year material.
Tech upgrades and interior features
In addition the 2018 Ford F150 models’ impressive performance numbers, these trucks also boast a wide range of tech upgrades and interior features every driver will love. Tech innovations include a brilliant 8″ LCD Productivity Screen, available Sync Connect® powered by FordPass™ for easy vehicle monitoring and remote-access features, a class-exclusive remote tailgate release, an available -in 360-degree camera with split-view display, state-of-the-art driver assist and lane-keeping technology, adaptive cruise control, backup assistance, and more.
The 2018 Ford F150 line features a host of interior options and welcome features, including plush seating with available comprehensive power driver capabilities as well as seat heaters. On the safety side of things, Ford again leads the way with airbag-equipped seat belts for rear passengers and the aforementioned lane-keeping assist system that, as Motor Trend notes, “gently caresses (rather than nudges) the truck back to the center of the lane.”
The right full-size light-duty pickup for your needs
Featuring best-in-class payload, best-in-class towing, an optimized, class-defining pickup box, supreme all-terrain handling and more, the 2018 Ford F150 is far and away the best full-size light-duty pickup of the year.

The Official Comeback of the Ford Bronco
That’s right, it’s official! There were merely rumors that rumbled throughout the Internet and amongst Ford enthusiasts, but it has been made official by the auto manufacturer at the 2017 Detroit auto show, the Ford Bronco is coming back. Ford intends to re-deliver the Bronco in 2020. Read on to learn more about the history of the Ford Bronco SUV and why Ford is bringing it back to the American market.
History of the Ford Bronco
Generation I (1966-1977)
The Ford Bronco was first made available way back in 1966. The first generation Bronco, also known as the ‘Early Bronco’, was initially offered with a 9-inch rear, Dana 30 front, and a 170 cubic inch inline 6-cylinder engine. Consumers could choose between a wagon, half cab, and roadster configuration.
Compared to other 4-wheel drive vehicles of its time, the Bronco was smoother riding, could handle heavier loads, and was much easier to maneuver off and on road. And due to its drivetrain, it came to dominate off-road racing and became something of a racing legend.
Generation II (1978-1979)
Eleven years later in 1978, the second generation of Broncos was introduced. This generation saw a larger redesigned version that was based on a shortened fullsize F-100 pickup. Ford wanted complete interchangeability of doors with the F-100, plus a removable hardtop that would be leak-free and it also featured a folding rear seat. It was fitted with a coil-sprung Dana 44 front axle and a leaf-sprung Ford 9-inch axle in the rear. The base engine was the 351M V8 with an option 400M V8.
Generation III (1980-1986)
With a new decade, a new generation was born. The generation III Ford Bronco hit the American market in 1980 and was redesigned following the 1970s fuel crisis, which meant a reintroduction of a six-cylinder engine to complement the V-8. It was also designed shorter and lighter than the previous generation with a revised front suspension. This helped reduce the off-road emphasis of the Bronco and made it much more tolerable on-road. Finally, in terms of aesthetics, you’ll notice this generation was when the switch to the blue oval Ford logo was made. Previous generations had F-O-R-D spelled out on its grille.
Generation IV (1987-1991)
In 1987, the next generation of Ford Bronco was redesigned again to follow the changes in the Ford F-series and was given a number of updates to both the exterior and interior. The new exterior design was more aerodynamic with changes to the front bumper, a flatter front grille, a reshaped hood, as well as composite headlamps.
Other improvements included electronic fuel injection, rear-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS) for safety, and push-button control for its four-wheel drive. Engine options stayed the same as the previous generation with the 300 straight six, the 302 V8, and 351M V8.
Generation V (1992-1996)
The last generation Bronco (or so we once thought) was introduced to the market in 1992 and the last Bronco came off the line in 1996. This generation was redesigned along with the F-150s and had a number of safety updates added, including crumple zones, three-point seatbelts for the rear seat, a 3rd brake light in the top, and a driver side airbag.
With the brake light added to the removable top, this effectively made it illegal to remove. Guidance on how to remove it was left out of user manuals, but it still could be unbolted and removed by the willing and able.
After 1996, the Ford Bronco was discontinued and replaced by the 4-door Ford Expedition.
An automotive icon is about to make its return
Over the course of 30 years, the Bronco has become an automotive icon due to the simplicity of its design and its off-roading history. Vintage Broncos are actually increasing in value due to their popularity. They have actually doubled in value in the last five years. Could this be part of the reason Ford has decided to bring back the ever-popular Bronco?
There are currently no pricing on the upcoming 2020 Ford Bronco, but Ford will no doubt begin to leak specs and other news in the upcoming years. What they do say is that the reintroduced Bronco will be a “no-compromise mid-size 4×4 utility for thrill seekers who want to venture way beyond the city.”
