2018 Ford F-150 Pickup – Tougher, Smarter

The year 2018 brings us good news from Ford. The new 2018 F-150 will be a reworked, refreshed and upgraded version of a current model. It got its debut at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show. Although the new model is staying faithful to recognizable Ford truck features, it also survived some drastic changes.

Exterior

When it comes to exterior, the new 2018 F-150 has definitely undergone serious changes especially when we look at the front end. Features such as grille, front bumper and headlights have been completely redesigned. It has got a larger grille which has been split by horizontal bars that go into the headlights. The tailgate has also been reworked, especially the bigger and more massive taillights. The whole vehicle appears to have a bulging design and it has certainly been aimed at the needs of a modern-day customer who simply enjoys truck rides, either alone or with their families. The rest of the bodywork (such as front fog lights, side steps and two hooks under the front bumper) will stay pretty much familiar.
