2018 Ford F-150 Redesign
The exterior design of the approaching model is a mystery, considering the fact that on the testing, the whole chassis was camouflaged. That doesn’t mean that we don’t know anything about the design of the vehicle, more or less Ford doesn’t make sudden changes. At the first glance, we can notice that this model will be definitely bolder and that will have a more aggressive appearance. According to photos, we can notice a bit different headlights, similar to that one in Super Duty model. Also, there is going to be some slight changes in the grille of the vehicle, probably in sight of the addition of more chrome materials.
From the pictures that we have, we can also notice the different design of the wheels. Information’s about wheels size are not available, but according to pictures, we assume around 18 or 19-inch size. At the rear fascia, we can expect the addition of new taillights. Also, the LED system will power all the lights in the vehicle.
If we talk about the new Ford F-150 2018 interior design, everything here is based on speculations and rumors. We don’t have photos of the cabin, and we can just assume how will look like. There is going to be some slight redesigns certainly, but all the system will remain the same as before. If this model shares some interior features with its predecessor, then we can expect cloth and leather upholstery. Also there will be 3 and 5 Person Seating Capacity, Manual Air Conditioning, 4-Way Driver and Passenger Seat, Analog Display, Front Cupholder, AM/FM Stereo, auxiliary audio input jack, and many others as well.
This is the segment where we can expect a lot of changes. Everything is also based on rumors, but these rumors are really strong. We can expect the addition of all new 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine as well as some improvements on already existing 5.0-liter V8 gas engine. The diesel engine is in cooperation with Euro friends Peugeot/Citroen. Rumors about torque are that could be more than 400 lb-ft(about 440 lb-ft). The addition of 2018 Ford F-150 diesel engine is certainly great news for all enthusiast of this model, and there are a lot of fans definitely. Unfortunately, that is all that we know about powertrain of this model, but as soon as we receive some new information’s, we will let you know.
Other standard engines should be 2.7-liter EcoBoost, naturally aspirated 3.5-liter V-6, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost, and a bit improved version of “old/new” EcoBoost V-6 3.5-liter. New 2018 F150 will definitely have better fuel economy because Ford will equip all engines with the 10-speed automatic transmission.
