The engines aren't the only innovative systems on the 2018 F-150 Lariat. Coming standard on the Lariat is a Pro Trailer Backup Assist that helps to make backing up your trailer easier than ever before. Instead of trying to turn your steering wheel just right to get your trailer where you want it to go, turn the Pro Trailer Backup Assist dial in the direction you want your trailer to go. The system will then guide your trailer either left or right, depending on which way you turned the dial, and your trailer will always go exactly where you want it to go. This feature is great for those who are just starting to haul a trailer, and for those who have been towing for years.
Another incredible feature on the 2018 F-150 Lariat is the available Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop-and-Go technology. Sensors located at the front of the truck are able to constantly monitor the distance between your F-150 Lariat and the vehicle in front of you. When it detects that the distance between the two vehicles is beginning to shrink, it will automatically slow down your engine speed in order to keep you and your precious cargo at a safe distance behind the vehicle ahead. As soon as traffic clears or begins to speed up, the system will bring you back to your set cruising speed. That way you won't have to worry about manually adjusting your speed when you run into a bit of traffic.
The Ford F-150 Lariat has always been one of our more popular vehicles here at Sherwood Ford, and because of its impressive performance and capability, it's easy to see why. Coming standard on the F-150 Lariat is a 2.7L EcoBoost® engine that features a Ford-first port fuel and direct injection that has two injectors per cylinder.

When you take pressure off the brakes, your engine will seamlessly start itself back up.
