2018 Ford F-150 Received a Facelift, Diesel Engine


Ford introduced an updated version of the F-150 pickup truck at Detroit motor show. The car has received a number of changes on the outside, but the most important innovation is that the model has finally offered a diesel engine.

Along with the overall modernization, Ford revised the range of gasoline engines: now the base for a pickup is naturally-aspirated V6 of 3.3 liters with 282 hp. He drove out of the range the old engine of 3.5 liters with the same power output. Another gasoline engines are also upgraded – naturally aspirated V8 5.0 and turbocharged V6 in a displacement of 2.7 and 3.5 liters. All these engines will get a start-stop system that allows you to save a little on fuel. All engines are now aggregated with the 10-speed automatic. Previously, the pickup was equipped with a 6-speed one.

Exterior changes

Outside the upgraded Ford F-150 can be found LED headlamps and a new grille, rather grating – because customers will be offered seven variants: chrome, painted in body color and matte.

Updated F-150 Release Date

The petrol version of the updated Ford F-150 will go on sale later this year, and diesel, as noted above, will be sold only in the summer of 2018.
