2018 Ford F 150 Raptor Detroit – Not merely is the Ford F-Series the number one selling pick up truck for four decades, it can also the best-selling vehicle in the U. T. for more than 35 years. For 2018, the refreshed F-150 gets a new 3. 0-liter Electric power Stroke turbodiesel V-6 that has yet to be rated for power or fuel economy. The newest engine, which will likely feature twin turbos, is supported by a 10-speed computerized tranny.
Ford also updated almost all of the F-150’s gasoline search engines. The previous model’s foundation 3. 5-liter V-6 has shrunk to 3. 3 liter, but gains a new twin-injection system (port and direct). Power evaluations are unchanged at 282 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. The 3. 3-liter is backed by a six-speed computerized indication.
The new second-generation 2. 7-liter EcoBoost V-6 also gains the twin-injection system, while the 5. 0l Coyote V-8 gains new plasma-transferred wire arc spray-bore cylinder lining for reduced weight over the past engine’s iron cylinder line. Ford says the 2. 7-liter EcoBoost and 5. 0-liter V-8 make more power than before. The second-generation twin-injection 3. 5l EcoBoost V-6, with 375 hp and 470 lb-ft, introduced in 2017 holds over. A 10-speed computerized backs the 2. 7-liter EcoBoost, 5. 0-liter, and 3. 5-liter EcoBoost machines. All 2018 F-150 drivetrains feature standard programmed start/stop.
We expect the new for 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor and its 450-hp, 510 lb-ft 3. 5l EcoBoost V-6 and 10-speed auto combo to hold over unchanged.
The current-generation Ford F-150 found their way to 2015 among lots of controversy anticipated to its (mostly) lightweight aluminum cab and box. Ford producer claims the aluminum development reduced weight by up to 700 pounds depending on configuration and options.
The pre-refresh 2017 Ford producer F-150 pickup has a five-star overall safety score from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars) and is considered a 2016 Top Basic safety Pick by the IIHS. That F-150, last year’s model, received a front side crash prevention designation of basic because of its optional Adaptable Cruise Control and Accident Warning with Brake Support. The 2018 F-150 features precollision ease pedestrian recognition, which first warns the driver and second brake systems the vehicle to reduce impact, while the adaptable cruise control now features stop-and-go traffic-jam cruising.
