2018 Ford F-150 to Feature Turbodiesel Alongside New Grilles and Powertrain Tweaks

As of our writing, the Ford F-150 holds the best-in-class titles for towing, torque, and payload among half-ton pickups. But they’re not done raising the bar. The 2018 pickup is on its way, and it will come with an efficient and powerful turbodiesel V6, along with upgrades to every other powertrain.

The ten-speed automatic is now standard equipment with all models featuring the 2.7-liter turbocharged V6, 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, turbodiesel V6, and 5.0-liter V8. All of these engines, save the twin-turbo unit will get upgrades for gas mileage, power, and capability. The base engine is being replaced by a 3.3-liter naturally-aspirated V6 with a six-speed automatic transmission, making around the same power as the previous engine. The F-150 will continue to be offered in XL, XLT, SXT, Lariat, King Ranch, Limited, and Platinum trims, with a different grille for each.

The 2018 F-150 will go on sale later this year, but the turbodiesel won’t arrive until next summer. We’ll keep you abreast of pricing and power numbers when they’re released. In the meantime, contact our Ford dealership in Fenton, MI to learn more.
