With 2017 Ford EcoBoost F-150 added to lineup, automaker is not exactly resting on its laurels for the 2018 model year. This is the top-selling car in U.S. after all, and it’ll be getting a bit of a facelift next year to keep things fresh. The F-150 was fully designed for the 2015 version year, so this will be its first visual modify since then, although it’s collected brand-new features and trim levels over the interacting period.
We expect reshaped, squared off LED accent lights, along with front end changes. The F-150’s opening might look a bit dissimilar, too, because it seems that more chromium is always acceptable in the truck world. Expect brand-new lamps, dissimilar wheel designs, and some insignificant indoor squeezes as well. Coming with new diesel 3 liter V-6 engine to go up against the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, which is the only half-ton truck that currently offers a compression-ignition option. Same engine is used in Land Rover Td6 models.
Somewhat complicated genealogy aside, the diesel V-6 should put up some great force figures it makes about 440 lb-ft in its different Range Rover applications along with tough highway fuel economy. To have full truck with fuel economy symbol from the Ram, it’ll have to beat the 29 mpg supplied by the distinctive HFE version, which comes with some aerodynamic improvement features such as a tonneau cover to eke out additional mpg in EPA try-out, standard Ram EcoDiesel can gain up to 28 mpg is still great.
We have no concept how Ford will collection the diesel option or on which body styles it will be supplied. Expect it to outgo a bit additional over the 2.7 liter and 3.5 liter EcoBoost V-6 options with standard 10 speed automatic transmission.
There cannot be many changes to F-150's powertrain which will have 3.5 liter V-6 and 5 liter V-8 both naturally aspirated, 2.7 liter EcoBoost, 3.5 liter EcoBoost V-6 for more power and torque than before.
The only change we might evaluate is diversified convenience for new 10 speed automatic transmission, that’s currently only accessible with the 3.5 EcoBoost.
