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.
