The Borgman Ford Commercial Team is pleased to introduce the All-New 2018 Ford F-150, which will arrive at our Grand Rapids showroom sometime during the fall of 2017. The new pickup will further solidify Ford’s position of America’s truck leader with improvements on the aluminum body, frame, and features that made the previous generation great, while adding exciting new features like an onboard WiFi hotspot, Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection, and for the first time ever, a diesel engine. The article below, originally published in the Ford Media Center, goes into further detail about what makes the 2018 Ford F-150 tougher, smarter, and more capable than its predecessors.
Here are some highlights from the article:
Introducing the new 2018 Ford F-150 – now even tougher, even smarter and even more capable than ever.
The new F-150 arrives with bold new front and rear styling, advanced technologies – including available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection – and improved engines.
The new F-150 delivers on its Built Ford Tough promise through a segment-exclusive combination of advanced materials that are durable and inhibit corrosion. A high-strength steel fully boxed ladder frame and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body save weight and add capability, helping F-150 tow heavier trailers than ever and deliver best-in-class payload ratings.
The 2018 F-150 lineup is new with even tougher looks. From XL to top-of-the-line Limited, all Ford F-150 models receive new grilles, headlamps, and bumpers that create a visually wider and more planted stance and maximum differentiation between the series.
A new, sculpted tailgate with deeper accent form and stamped “F-150” are flanked by new tail lamp designs.
Ford F-150 advances the light-duty pickup truck segment again with segment-first and class-exclusive technologies that improve productivity, efficiency and driver confidence while keeping occupants connected to the world around them.
- New enhanced segment-first available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality.
- New, segment-first available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection.
- With a new available embedded 4G LTE modem for a Wi-Fi hot spot.
- Available 360-degree camera technology
- Available Blind Spot Information System – optimized to include the length of a trailer
Even more capable
The new F-150 introduces an all-new, standard 3.3-liter V6 engine, with direct-injection for increased efficiency. An all-new second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine features advanced dual port and direct injection technology, reduced internal friction, and improved robustness. Like the 3.5-liter EcoBoost, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost will be paired to the segment-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission for 2018.
The 5.0-liter V8 also sees improvements in 2018, as the naturally aspirated engine features significant upgrades for increased 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-liter Power Stroke diesel engine, designed, engineered and tested in-house and paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission. It’s the first-ever diesel engine offered for F-150.
