Beechmont Ford Announces a 2018 Ford F150 Package with 725hp

The same Ohio dealership that will build you a 700 horsepower 2018 Ford Mustang GT for $40,000 is now offering a 2018 Ford F-150 with either 640 or 725 horsepower for $37,995, but only one of them comes with a standard warranty.

Last week, we brought you the news of the Beechmont Ford 2018 Mustang GT with 700 horsepower, a bumper-to-bumper warranty and a price starting under $40,000. Today, we bring you another interesting option from the Cincinnati Ford dealership, with the Beechmont F-150 offering as much as 725 horsepower with a starting price of just $37,995 - but the warranty details for the supercharged truck are a bit different from the muscle car.

The Beechmont Ford 2018 F-150 XL
Like the Beechmont Mustang, the high performance F-150 from the Ohio Ford dealership is centered around a supercharger fitted to the top of the 5.0-liter V8. The buyer can pick from a Roush 2.65-liter supercharger that delivers 640 horsepower or a 2.9-liter Whipple that lifts the output to 725 horsepower. The Whipple kit offers 675 lb-ft of torque while the Roush setup “only” packs 600 lb-ft, but there is a key difference to these two equally-priced packages.

The Roush kit with 640 horsepower comes with a full bumper-to-bumper warranty because Roush worked with Ford when developing this supercharger setup. On the other hand, the Whipple package with 725 horsepower will not cover any engine or drivetrain damage, but those buyers who opt for the extra power can pay more for a 3-year, 36,000-mile warranty from Whipple.

So, for the base price of $37,995, buyers can pick a 2018 F-150 with 640 horsepower and a full warranty or the same half-ton truck with 725 horsepower and no drivetrain warranty. It is a tough decision, but I bet that both trucks are a blast to drive.

Other Features
The Beechmont F-150 is built on the XL regular cab pickup with the Sport package, the 5.0-liter V8 engine and rear-wheel drive. The Sport package adds body-colored bumpers 17-inch wheels, fog lights and a Sync infotainment system. Buyers can pick other options, but that increases the price, and anyone who buys either of the Beechmont F-150 packages will most certainly want to replace the stock 17-inch wheels and tires with wider, stickier rubber.

Really, even with the Sport package and a few simple upgrades, the Beechmont F-150 begins with a relatively bare-bones pickup, allowing the buyers to add as much or as little to the truck as they want. You can load it up and have a fast, plush street truck or you can leave it bare, focus on performance and have a fantastic F-150 sport truck with as little weight as possible.

Beechmont Ford is taking orders on both of these packages right now, so if you have a hankering for a 2018 F-150 with 640 or 725 horsepower, it is time to order your new truck.
