2018 Ford F-150 Nesquehoning PA

It goes without saying, but we'll say it anyway; there's a lot to love about the 2018 Ford F-150 in Nesquehoning PA and 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Both have been trusted implicitly over the years to give you stellar innovation and power out of a pickup, which is evident in the Silverado's available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. This does give it an edge in the tech department, but if you're looking for a more well-rounded experience, the 2018 F-150 is your new favorite truck. Its maximum towing and payload capacities, shown above, are each best-in-class, made even more impressive due to the F-150's design cues that have left it more than 700 pounds lighter than predecessors. Top developments such as class-exclusive Remote Tailgate Release and a 360-degree camera have earned the 2018 F-150 a Motor Trend Truck of the Year award, ensuring that the energy will flow for years to come in ways that other competitors simply can't duplicate.
