While not receiving any earth-shattering overhauls, Ford continues to trend upward with their truck and SUV lineup. Noticing the trend in V6 motors, which made up 75% of sales, Ford will bring an increased number of V6 options to the 2018 F-150. The most notable being an all-new smaller 3.3-liter V6 which will provide greater power and torque while also seeing an increase in fuel economy, all an improvement over the 3.5-liter. Additionally, the 2018 model offers a beefed up 5.0-liter V8 with 10 more horsepower and 13 ft.-lb. of torque over the prior model year.
On the SUV side, Ford has beefed up the 2018 Expedition to help it truly live up to its name. The Expedition FX4 will be the most off-road-capable variant of the SUV offered to date and will feature, “off-road-tuned shocks, all-new electronic limited-slip rear differential, skid plates and side steps.”
