Nice Whips: 2018 Ford F-150

Nice Whips: 2018 Ford F-150
Ford has updated the aluminum-bodied F-150 pickup for 2018, installing new, more efficient gasoline EcoBoost V6 engines, a 10-speed automatic transmission, and for the first time in its light-duty truck family, a Power Stroke diesel engine. The F-150’s gas engine family is getting a new EcoBoost turbocharged V6, now displacing 3.3 liters instead of the 2017 truck’s 3.5 liters. This new engine is related to the one we drove in the 2017 F-150 Raptor, but for regular F-150 duty it is 3.3 liters and 282 horsepower, rather than the 3.5 liters and 450 horsepower of the Raptor. There is also a new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 for 2018. It gets a dual fuel injection system featuring both port and direct injectors, along with reduced internal friction for improved power and efficiency. Finally, the 5.0-liter V8 famous for its service in Mustangs over the years also gets improved power and torque for 2018, though as with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost, Ford hasn’t released the final specifications yet.
