2018 Ford F-450
After complete redesign last year, 2018 Ford F-450 should come pretty much without changes. As you probably know, this is one of the toughest models from Super Duty lineup. Moreover, it is some kind of connection between Super Duty and larger medium duty trucks. These series originally came in 1998. So far, we have seen plenty of variants in offer. There are total four generations of this truck. Current model came just recently, and we believe that some more important changes won’t come in next few years. So, 2018 F-450 will continue in pretty much same manner, with completely new platform, styling and many features. We expect its arrival late this year and it should keep pretty much the same price.
2018 Ford F-450 redesign
As we already mentioned, 2018 Ford F-450 should come without bigger changes. This model came completely new last year, and it features plenty of novelties. This hard truck rides on completely new platform, borrowed from new F-150. There are plenty of advanced design solutions on this truck, but most notable is definitely about its construction. It features a chassis that is made 95 percent of HSS, while body is completely of aluminum. This provides significant weight savings. We presume that new 2018 Ford F-450 will be for about 700 pounds lighter that previous generation. Besides new platform, there is also a completely new, more attractive styling, which completely features brand’s latest design language. Just like previous versions, it will come with plenty of variants. There will be total four trim levels – XL, XLT, Lariat and Platinum. This truck comes in Super Crew Cab body style, with dual rear wheels.
2018 Ford F-450 engines
The 2018 Ford F-450 will come with two engines in offer. There is a 6.2 liter V8 gasoline engine, which comes with more power, around 385 horses and 430 pound-feet of torque. The other one features a diesel engine. It is a familiar unit, with displacement of 6.7 liters and max output of 440 horsepower and 925 pound-feet of torque. Both engines come in pair with TorqShift 6-speed automatic transmission, but gasoline engine comes with its latest version called TorqShift-G.
