The F-150 Goes Diesel
Since 1948, the F-150 has ranked among the most popular models offered by Ford. The F-150 has, in fact, been the best-selling truck in Canada for many years now. It’s not surprising, considering its versatility and its perfect balance of power, responsiveness, comfort, safety and elegance. But Ford didn’t stop there! The manufacturer decided to offer a new drive train for 2018.
Introduced at the beginning of 2017 at the Detroit Auto Show, the all-new 2018 F-150 is now available in a diesel version with a 3.0 L V6 Power Stroke turbo engine. Coupled with an automatic 10-speed transmission, it will also be available with an all-new 3.3 L V6 direct injection gas engine, which replaces the previous 3.5 L V6. The new V6 will maintain the same impressive performance, while offering increased energy efficiency.
The new 2018 Ford F-150 will also benefit from modern styling from head to toe, with new rims, carbon inlays in the cab and several available appearance packages to make your next F-150 unique. Ford has also added a number of technological features to improve your day-to-day driving experience: optional Adaptive Cruise Control, which adjusts your cruising speed to that of the vehicles in front of you; an optional 4G LTE modem emitting a WiFi signal that can be used simultaneously by up to 10 devices; a 360° camera to facilitate driving with a trailer; and standard Auto Start-Stop Technology, which helps you conserve fuel by momentarily shutting off the engine when you’re stopped at a red light and starting it up again seamlessly as soon as you take your foot off the brake pedal.
