2018 Ford F-150
Main change of the 2018 Ford F-150 could be under its hood. Some rumors are reporting that company is preparing new engine, which could take diesel as its fuel. For the current model, these rumors were downplayed, but 2018 could be the year of breaking point. Nevertheless, truck will use same engine as it’s been used by current lineup. As we talk about design, we still don’t know what could be offered. We assume that F-150 will be revisited. Lights, grille and doors could face some tuning, but we will have more information as the time of launching is getting closer.
2018 Ford F-150 diesel
Diesel unit for the 2018 Ford F-150 is being developed. From leaked information, we found out that is V6 engine with 3.0-l displacement, has the work name Lion. Since this is new drivetrain, it is not used by other vehicles and Ford officials are silent on its performance, we can’t predict its output. We assume improvements will be done, especially for torque. One thing is also unclear at this point, and it is new 10-speed transmission. This gearbox was announced, but schedule of its production are still unknown. Maybe F-150 in 2018 will be the first product to use this transmission.
2018 Ford F-150 lightning
The 2018 Ford F-150 truck could get special edition, performance-tuned model called “Lightning”. Stories about this car are far-fetched, and every new model brings rumors about it. But now, it is more likely than before. With new diesel engine, designers could make more aggressive and powerful version of F-150 truck. Some stories are saying this vehicle could bring up to 500 hp, which is hard to believe, but if engineers tune it just for that purpose, we shouldn’t be so pessimistic.
2018 Ford F-150 configurations
We guess that 2018 Ford F-150 will come as its predecessors in Regular and Super cab configurations, with two or three types of bed length. Also, trim levels are standard, with XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum and King Ranch very probable, and Limited edition of the 2018 F-150 truck could arrive few months after others.
