It’s no secret—the Ford F-150 has been America’s favorite truck for decades now. That’s thanks to Ford’s ability to anticipate the consumer’s ever-changing needs and deliver a truck that’s both modern and classically capable. In sticking with tradition, the new 2018 Ford F-150 keeps the recently added aluminum body and other F-150 standards while adding updates fit for the new model year. Here’s what’s changing.

Exterior

The muscular body of the 2018 F-150 gets a bold updated with a new grille, a new tailgate, and fresh headlights. LED accent lights surround both the high- and low-beam headlights for a distinct design, and separate the upper and lower tail lights as well. The 2018 F-150 also receives an all-new wheel design.

Performance

One of the biggest pieces of news regarding the light-duty 2018 Ford F-150 is the first-ever diesel engine option. Ford has yet to release specifications on the 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6, but it promises to be a popular option. The revised EcoBoost 2.7-liter V6, the 5.0-liter V8, and the new 3.3-liter V6 will also be available as powertrain options.

Technology

Higher trim levels of the 2018 Ford F-150 can be equipped with the premium Bang & Olufsen Stereo System. The available adaptive cruise-control and the forward-collision-warning system are both more intelligent and more autonomous than ever, providing smarter driver-assist technologies. Plus, the newly available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot can quickly turn the 2018 F-150 into a mobile office.

The new 2018 Ford F-150 is going to be a favorite at L&L Motor Co. We hope you’ll stop by to take this impressive pickup for a spin.

After making its American debut at the New York International Auto Show, the all new 2016 Ford Focus RS is generating a lot of buzz! It isn’t certain yet whether the Focus RS will be coming to the American market, but that doesn’t make its reveal any less exciting!

The Focus RS is said to be equipped with a modified 2.3-liter EcoBoost four cylinder that is used in the current 2015 Mustang. The engine generates more than 315 horsepower, providing the perfect amount of power and performance.

In addition, the Focus RS features new suspension units, upgraded brakes, and a new all-wheel-drive system that includes torque vectoring. In addition to those features, the Focus RS showed off two brilliant new colors–Nitrous Blue and Stealth Gray.
