The 2018 model year will be an exciting one for Ford truck fans, with plenty of updates and improvements to the pickup line. Read on to get the gist of what’s new with the Ford F-Series, then stop in at Sanderson Ford later this year to take the new 2018 Ford trucks for a test drive.
Two years ago, the big news for the F-150 was the new high-strength aluminum body that gave it and its heavy-duty brothers lighter weight, more power, and more capability. That design detail continues into 2018 but gets a new boost from a new ten-speed transmission.
Initially, the electric 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission will be available only on the off-road-ready Ford F-150 Raptor, but will gradually make its way to other trims. The 2018 Ford F-150 will also get stylistic updates as well as the addition of a diesel engine option.
The aluminum body was such a success for the lightweight F-150 that two years later Ford is trying it out as an option for its 2018 super duty trucks. The new aluminum body super duty pickups shed around 350 pounds and gain strength. These pickups will be available with a 6.2-liter V8 or an updated 6.7-liter V8 diesel.
The 2018 Ford lineup offers a range of exciting features and trims. Models come with innovative new technologies to improve connectivity and safety, while refined performance optimizes power without sacrificing fuel economy.
The 2018 Ford lineup has some exciting changes, especially for the Focus, Fusion, Taurus, Fiesta and Mustang. Each of these vehicles comes with updated technology perks, both in terms of infotainment systems and safety features. These models also have improved performance and a sleeker style.
