Having spent the better part of 40 consecutive years as the best-selling pickup truck in the US, the Ford F-150 continues to make improvements, enhancements and refinements to its design and performance. When the 2018 Ford F-150 hits our lot here at Broadway Automotive in Green Bay, WI, you can be sure to find even better capability, efficiency and intuitive technology than we’ve seen yet from the F-150. Release for this impressive model is expected later this year in fall.
For the 2018 model year, the Ford F-150 will once again use high-strength military grade aluminum alloy for its construction. The automaker has found that not only does this material help with fuel efficiency, but it also limits the damage caused to your truck by corrosion. Additional changes include a new front grille design for each of the truck’s trim levels, starting with the LX model. Buyers will also have the choice between six new wheel designs and new upholstery options for top trims.
Ford isn’t cutting any corners with the F-150. Offering the performance and efficiency pickup truck drivers are looking for, the 2018 F-150 will offer the model’s first diesel engine option. It’ll come with an all-new 3.0-liter diesel engine paired to a 10-speed automatic transmission.
There’s more to the Ford F-150 than its powerful capability. The 2018 F-150 will come with an embedded Wi-Fi hotspot, which will allow up to 10 devices to connect to the signal at once. In addition to that, users can also connect to the signal up to 50 feet away. The new model will be compatible with the new FordPass app as well..
Plenty of new safety features have been added to the F-150 which will be considered segment firsts. These include active safety features like adaptive cruise control, pre-collision alerts with pedestrian detection, 360-degree camera and radar and camera safety technology.
