Ford surprised many by announcing that the 2018 F-150 will join Ram in offering a 3.0-Liter turbo diesel option. Ford's Power Stroke diesel will be available with a 10-speed automatic. Look for Ford to surpass Ram in class-leading fuel economy. Ford revealed the new model year vehicle during the Pregame show of the NFL Wildcard game at 4 pm yesterday (Jan 8th).

 

Other highlights of the 2018 F-150, which goes on sale this fall (of 2017) include:

- Adaptive cruise control that can manage speeds in traffic all the way to a full stop

- Lane keeping technology - coupled with above will move the F-150 closer to semi-autonomous driving

- Forward collision prevention with class-first pedestrian detection

- All-new 3.3L base engine (non-turbo) with 282 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque

- Revised, second-gen 2.7L Turbo option with improved durability and efficiency. 10-speed available with this engine

JOKE! FERD remember the 4.6 2valve/3valve joke engines called triton? 282HP and 253 Torque in a Full-Size Truck? Only a FERD person would buy into this! How many engines have you people built in the last 30years! My Gosh joke!

Nothing wrong with a little innovation, and more consumer options. Keeps the segment on its toes.

Agreed. I personally like ford. Almost bought one, but the ecoboost engine (they haul ass!!!) Doesn't last as long as our 5.3 and 6.2 engines. Plus an xlt costs as much as my ltz. Now, this new Ford body style for the f150 coming out in 2018 is ugly in my opinion.

GM should definately put that 4.6 V8 diesel in production now in 1/2 ton. Blow them away in towing!

I would bet that the next Silverado 1500 gets some kind of diesel. Just look at some of the updates they are doing to other models as a lot of them are receiving some kind of diesel engine.

I'm confused. Isn't this a GM site?

If someone is interested in a Ferd, go to the Ferd site.

 

My fingers are burning just from typing this. :happysad:

Where is your proof that they don't last as long? Hey I don't think Ford Trucks are worth shit myself but I'm interested to know where you are seeing that the 3.5L Ego Boost isn't lasting as long. Considering they have only been out there for a short amount of time.

The EB engine was released in 2011. I was seriously researching ford for a while and everything I read about the EB, mechanics opinions, and people who've owned them showed me that they aren't the most reliable compared to Chevy. Fiat was out of the question because those trucks are garbage.

I am not mad at all! More confused really....I have seen one engine come and go over the years at FERD only to see another engine come and go? Really, remember the 3 valve jokes? Innovation at FERD would be.....How about one engine architecture that we could use for durability purposes in TRUCKS and REFINE IT to have better MPG'S more power than say, GM? Nope... just more crap! Go ahead bro! go buy you a 3.3L N/A for your TRUCK!

      I've tried searching and can't seem to find any information about towing.
       
      I've had a couple of 2500's, a 3500 and my son now has a Canyon. When he got his, I went back to a 4 door sedan. It's been 3 years and I'm ready to be back in a truck. His 4 cylinder Canyon doesn't do it for me....
       
      I'm interested in a 2019 AT4 with the D-max. Will the tow specs be lower on the AT4 than on the straight Denali? Kind of like how the ZR2 is less than the Z71 Colorado. 
       
      Thanks, friends!

      Ford has announced that it will begin to phase out of the passenger car market. The most recent announcement caps a long list of hints by Ford that the company could not seem to build cars that are competitive or that were profitable to make domestically. Ford will be walking away from a volume of business larger than the total sales volume of Volkswagen in America. The Mustang will stay, but most of the Ford cars will not have a next generation.
       
      FCA recently canceled two Dodge and Chrysler models, deciding to keep only the luxury and rear/AWD muscle cars that it can also sell to government agencies. The natural question to ask, given that both Ford and Chrysler are walking away from mainstream family cars, is will GM follow the examples?
       
      Mary Barra, GM’s CEO says GM will not follow the example. At least in the near term. Here’s what Barra told investors in a recent conference call:
      “We launched very efficient architectures in the midsize and compact (segments) proving to be good platforms going forward with fairly minor changes…And the segments are still significant. Because we’ve made the investments, we need to deploy little to no capital going forward, so we view (cars) as an opportunity. What you’ll see us do is play very efficiently in a segment that, although it is declining, there is still an opportunity.”
       
      That does not mean that GM won’t retire individual car models across its brands. Barra has already said that the Volt will go away eventually as GM switches to battery-electric cars (fully electric like the Bolt). Cadillac, Buick and Chevy also have some cars that are moving so slowly the market is killing them off, regardless of what GM wants. All but one Cadillac car, ironically, the front wheel drive one, the Lacrosse, the Impala, and the Sonic all look like models that could eventually be replaced by crossover models.

      I have a 95 gmc 2500 with a 6.5 it has a huge power loss and blows blue smoke only when under load also has visible smoke from oil fill tube. Seems to start and idle just fine no smoke until under load. Not sure what it is at this point it seemed to gradually get worse until today I could barely get up the hill.

      well, it looks like Ford is putting all of its eggs into one basket; by dropping every passenger car currently in production and going all in on Trucks and SUVs. essentially, the ONLY car they will have left is the Mustang and even then by 2020, the Mustang will be paired with a word that makes the performance community projectile vomit when it is uttered: HYBRID. i for one, feel sorry that Ford is about to essentially ruin the last good nameplate it has.
