2018 Ford F-150: Coming Soon to Grand Rapids & West MI
Borgman Ford has been keeping a trained eye on the upcoming 2018 Ford F-150, and this latest bit of news reveals that the new Ford truck will the lightest, strongest, and toughest yet. Sometime this fall, the New 2018 Ford F-150 will arrive at Borgman Ford and Borgman Commercial, bringing with it 5 different engines to choose from!
This is especially great news for West Michigan businesses that are looking for more flexibility when choosing a truck, weighing out power and efficiency. Plus, if you’ve been keeping your fingers crossed for a diesel Ford F-150, those will arrive at our dealership in Grand Rapids next spring!
Below, we’ve included an excerpt from the news story from the Ford Media Center about the new truck’s engines, including a chart that compares their power to last the gen’s engines. Here are some details about the new engines:
For 2018, F-150 introduces an even smaller, more efficient 3.3-liter V6 that adds dual port and direct-injection technology to deliver more power and torque than the previous 3.5-liter V6, plus improved projected EPA-estimated gas mileage – a win-win for customers.
Aiding in light-weighting, the standard 3.3-liter V6 in the 2018 F-150 is projected to offer a 5 percent power-to-weight ratio improvement versus the steel-bodied 2014 F-150 equipped with 3.7-liter V6 – with better anticipated fuel efficiency and performance.
With advanced dual port and direct-injection technology, the all-new second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost® engine delivers a 25 lb.-ft. increase in torque, and at lower engine speeds compared to a traditional V8. Like the second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost that debuted last model year, the 2.7-liter will be paired to a segment-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission for 2018.
The 5.0-liter V8 also is enhanced for 2018. This naturally aspirated engine brings significant upgrades including advanced dual port and direct-injection technology for 10 more horsepower and 13 ft.-lb. of torque. In addition, the engine features spray-on bore liner technology featured in the high-performance Mustang GT350, all to squeeze out even more weight from the aluminum block.
For the first time, the V8 is paired with a Ford-built 10-speed automatic transmission. EPA-estimated fuel economy will be announced closer to market availability.
F-150 adds an available all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke® V6 diesel – designed, engineered and tested in-house – paired with the 10-speed automatic. The first diesel engine offered for F-150 will be available next spring.
