2018 Ford F-150 Adds Turbodiesel Engine, Moves Capability Benchmark Further Up

Hot on the heels of the Ford F-150’s addition of a twin-turbo V6 with class-leading torque and towing for 2017, the Blue Oval has promised even more best-in-class capability for the 2018 model. This includes not only the long-awaited turbodiesel V6, but updates to every engine, and a wider availability of the new ten-speed automatic.

There are some visual changes as well, including reworked tail lights, and a cleaned-up look. Up front, the seven trims of the F-150 will each receive its own grille design. Yet it’s the engine lineup behind them that get the most work. Power and efficiency numbers are a mystery at this stage, but we’re confident the promised class-leading towing and gas mileage will come from the new turbodiesel V6/ten-speed auto pairing. A new naturally-aspirated 3.3-liter V6 replaces the outgoing 3.5-liter unit, and both the 5.0-liter V8 and 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 will be lighter, more efficient, and more powerful.

We await the release of the 2018 F-150’s power and capability figures eagerly. To learn more about the forthcoming features, contact our Ford dealership in Meridian, MS.
