Ford has made its best-selling pickup truck even better for the 2018 model year.
Shown at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, the 2018 Ford F-150 gets refreshed with changes to the front and rear styling, accompanied by a new front grille, headlights, tail lights and updated bumpers. But the biggest news for the updated truck is the addition of an all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel engine, which marks the first time the popular pickup is offered with a diesel. Unfortunately output hasn’t been revealed but expect it to offer plenty of torque for towing while being fuel efficient.
The old 3.5-liter V6 base engine has been replaced with a 3.3-liter that is expected to offer the same 282 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque, while the second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost has been tuned for better efficiency, more output and better durability. There’s also a 10-speed automatic transmission joining the lineup that wil be paired to all of the truck’s engines, including the 5.0-liter V8.
Other upgrades to the F-150 include available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring, a 360-degree camera and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
The 2018 Ford F-150 will go on sale this fall.
