2018 Ford F-150 at NAIAS – First Diesel Ever

We expect novelties from Ford almost on every car show, but new 2018 Ford F-150 obviously went further than simply expectations. Behind the newly designed grill versions (even seven of them) stands strong and powerful diesel engine in several trim options with all those interesting details for truly Ford lovers.

Exterior


There is the biggest change from the last model. Your attention has to be attracted by new, double-line grilles with interesting front light design near them. Lights look like they overflow to the center of the front end. All is covered with the chrome and with small cute details in color. Headlights will be in LED technology for higher trims, while the basic model has classic headlights and design. Speaking of the trim versions, you will be able to choose between 17 and 22 inches of wheels, many different sizes, and looks of the bumper, which goes below the grills with a tinny line to separate bumper from the front end. The rear end has also LED lights in higher trims and special covers, while lower trims must be satisfied with simple but also cute trapezoid rear end.

Interior

First look on this amazing machine promises large space inside. That is true, 2018 Ford F-150 is a big car as from outside, that from the inside, too. The first look at this model shows pretty much large cargo space in the truck, but more space in the cabin for passengers in all circumstances. It is sure that Ford will not embarrass with the poor technology inside or a small selection of high-tech equipment, like cruise control, pre-collision assist, 4G cellular radio, Wi-Fi hotspot, and B&O sound system. For those who expect luxury and elegance maybe should choose some other model, because new Ford looks a little cubic inside of the cabin.

Engine

Lot of trim versions has lot of engine options. A famous and recognizable 3.0 V6 engine should be a first excuse to buy this car, but there is a promising 3.3-liter turbodiesel with 240 horsepower and 440 pounds of speed paired with 10-speed automatic transmission. And that is all in a basic model. Power Stroke version, for example, will be equipped with 2.7 liter Eco Boost with measured fuel economy of 26 mpg city driving. Rumors said that Ford will consider of putting 5.0 liter Eco Boost engine with 6-speed automatic transmission for the special trim level.

2018 Ford F-150 Price

With all these trims is hard to predict the full price of the new 2018 Ford F-150, but let’s say that price range goes from $28,000 to $65,000.
