2018 F-150 debuts at North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Ford says the new 2018 Ford F-150, which will debut at the Auto Show in Detroit, is tougher, smarter and more capable than ever. It boasts new styling, advanced technologies and new engines, include an all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke V6 turbo diesel.

New available features include an enhanced adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, as well as Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, which helps the driver avoid or mitigate collisions with vehicles and pedestrians.

A new embedded 4G LTE modem is available. It creates a Wi-Fi hot spot, which allows customers to connect up to 10 mobile devices at one time. 

The new F-150 introduces an all-new, standard 3.3-litre V6 engine, with direct-injection for increased efficiency. The 3.3-litre V6 is expected to offer the same 282 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque as the previous model’s standard 3.5-litre V6. 

An all-new second-generation 2.7-litre EcoBoost promises improvements in output, efficiency, quality and durability. Like the 3.5-litre EcoBoost, the 2.7-litre EcoBoost will be paired to the segment-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission for 2018. 

The 5.0-litre V8 also sees improvements in power and torque. It’s also paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission for the first time. 

The 2018 F-150 also adds an available all-new 3.0-litre Power Stroke diesel engine, paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission. It’s the first-ever diesel engine offered for the F-150. 

The new 2018 F-150 goes on sale this fall.
