Updated Ford F-150 Spied with its New Face


The 2018 Ford F-150 is showing off its updated front end ahead of its debut.

The best-selling pickup truck in America is expected to unveil its refresh at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show with the latest spy photos revealing what to expect. The cosmetic changes intend to keep the F-150 fresh until the next-generation model arrives, with the front end adopting the Super Duty’s two-bar design but with more subtle details. In the rear, the tailgate also gets updated with a new handle.

Expect to see the new 10-speed automatic transmission jointly developed with Chevrolet to find its way to most of the F-150 models in time for the refresh, as it will be offered first on the new Raptor. Ford is also expected to update the EcoBoost V6 engine, making it more powerful and fuel efficient to continue making the F-150 as competitive as possible. There’s also a chance that a V6 diesel powerplant will debut in time for the update, while a hybrid variant has been confirmed further down the road.

    Nothing new, just another oversized ugly truck!

    The front ends of Ford and GMC/Chevy 1/2 tons are butt ugly and have been for years now. 2009 was the beginning of hideousness for Ford. Now, Ford even tries to look like GM with the very similar 4 headlight design. I just don’t get it…

    Wow, this looks pretty nice. Usually mid-cycle updates ruin a vehicle’s design but this might actually be an improvement. That grille looks classy.

    No thanks. I will keep my 2011 black megacab. Y’all can have the square trucks. Especially the new 350 ford. 70,000 for a brick with stupid looking lights?
