20 November/December 2017 Landscape and Irrigation www.landscapeirrigation.com EQUIPMENT FOCUS Work Trucks 2018 Ford F-150 Ford's new F-150 debuts for 2018 with the most advanced F-150 powertrain lineup ever that delivers best-in-class towing, payload and efficiency. Three years after introducing a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy-bodied F-150, a new truck arrives with bold new styling; advanced technologies; a segment-first 10-speed automatic transmission; and F-150's most advanced engine lineup yet, which includes the first available diesel ever for F-150.

For the first time, the V8 is paired with the 10-speed SelectShift automatic. For best-in-class towing, the second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 delivers 13,200 pounds of towing capacity, thanks to its 470 lb.-ft. of torque that beats all diesel- and gasoline-powered competitors, including V8 engines with nearly twice its displacement.
