2018 Ford F-150 adds turbodiesel plus new safety tech and styling

When the best-selling truck gets updated, plenty of people take notice, and so the 2018 Ford F-150 looks set to get attention at the Detroit Auto Show this coming week. Keeping the aluminum-alloy body that proved so controversial – and, indeed, still is fairly divisive among truck fans – the 2018 F-150 gets a revamped front and rear design, in addition to new engine options including a turbo-diesel. Meanwhile, the tech levels have been boosted, too.

From the XL up to the Limited version, the F-150 gets new grilles, headlamps, and front bumpers. They’re designed to be more distinctive between trim levels than the current aesthetic, as well as give the trucks a wider, “more planted stance” than today. The Lariat F-150 Sport Package gets twin bars finished in the same body-color.
