The 2018 Ford F-150 Arrives on the Market This Fall
Unveiled at the last North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the 2018 Ford F-150 will offer even more impressive technologies, even higher performance and new, more efficient engines. It retains its structure mainly composed of aluminum which makes it lighter and therefore more robust while also being more fuel-efficient.

Yes, the 2018 Ford F-150 will finally be offered with a diesel engine. Ford has also made several improvements to the 5.0-liter V8 and the 2.7-liter V6 EcoBoost engines in order to make them even more attractive to consumers. Power numbers have not yet been announced, but that shouldn’t take too long.
There will also be a new 3.3-liter V6 engine that will be standard and that will replace the 3.5-liter V6. Both engines develop the same power, 282 horsepower, and 253 lb.-ft. of torque, but the new 3.3-liter will be much more fuel-efficient. A 10-speed automatic transmission will be offered with the V6 diesel engine and the 2.7-liter and V8 powertrains, among others.
This gearbox will offer sharper performance when towing, and improve fuel economy. The latter will also be reduced with a standard start/stop system.
