2018 Models: Ford F-150 & Ford Expedition
Half the year is gone already?
2017 is half over and the 2018 models are soon to arrive! Keep reading for some really great information about the 2018 Ford F-150 and the 2018 Ford Expedition.
Years ago, Ford invested in its high-strength steel frames and military-grade aluminum alloy bodies. This investment allowed a savings of up to 700 pounds of weight on the F-150. This lower weight allowed customers to tow and haul way more than before. Now, with these lightweight materials, a new engine and an available 10-speed transmission give drivers so much more than before. Customers will see improved performance, efficiency and capability.
“Each F-150 and Expedition customer has unique needs, and we can deliver even more of the capability and efficiency they are looking for, thanks to our strategic use of lightweight materials and innovative V6 engines,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, Product Development and Purchasing. “Our dedication to this kind of innovation helps our F-Series and Expedition customers take care of their growing families and businesses, all with fewer stops for fuel along the way.”
New for 2018
For 2018, the F-150 offers an even smaller and more efficient V6 engine. Ford has added dual port and direct injection technology that provides more power and torque. It also offers improved projected EPA-estimated gas mileage. This is a HUGE saving for customers. The all-new 2018 Ford Expedition is designed with an all-new high strength aluminum-alloy body. It’s been redesigned with a high-strength steel frame as well. Under the hood is a new 3.5 liter EcoBoost engine that comes standard with Auto Start-Stop as well as the 10-speed automatic transmission.
