We have to squint behind the F-150’s camouflage to see the front-end changes, however, we expect improved fronts lights that will certainly imitate those seen on its big brother, Super Obligation, with noticeable squared-off LED accent lights. The F-150′s grille may look a bit various, as well, due to the fact that it appears that more chrome is constantly much better in the pick-up world.

Engine and Specs Ford F-150 2018
Although numerous reports suggested or else, it appears that the 2018 Ford F-150 will certainly retain its present engines. In addition to that, two brand-new ones will certainly be contributed to the mix. The currently popular Raptor will certainly come with a 3.5 liter EcoBoost with over 450 horsepower. The other one is a bit more intriguing. Why? Well, because it is a diesel. We know until now Ford hasn’t already verified this but lots of examination mules sounded like diesel, so we are quite sure of it. However, the real engine that will fit under its hood is still unidentified at this moment.
Ford has 2 various choices for the F-150, both of them being equally feasible. They might select the 3 liters turbocharged V6 which can be located on the existing Array Vagabond. This engine is known making over 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque, so it would be the best competitor for Ram’s Ecodiesel. Nevertheless, if they utilize it, Ford will need to extensively customize it. The additional choice is their very own 3.2 liters inline 5 turbo diesel which can be seen on the Transit. This engine could be tuned to earn over 200 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, its dependability has actually been shown long ago. In any case, a 10 rate automatic will certainly probably be standard, so the F-150 must offer fantastic fuel efficiency.
