Great news for all the fans of the ‘monster’ trucks because Ford is planning to launch the new 2018 Ford F-350. This model will hit the market with some significant changes and improvements, remaining the symbol of strength and power. Beside its aggressive and masculine design and a stunning performance, the new F-350 will also offer the latest tech features.
Although powerful and robust, the new 2018 Ford F-350 will be lighter in weight. Lighter materials will be used in its construction and that will help reduce its weight, but improve the driving performance at the same time. Steel and aluminum will be used and we have noticed the chrome details as well. The first thing in the front part of this vehicle that caught our attention was the new, massive and redesigned chrome grille. The front bumper has been reworked, too and the headlights, which will be using the LED technology, seem sharper. All of these together give the new F-350 an aggressive appearance. In the back part, you can expect a redesigned bumper, taillights using LED and a spacious trailer. We have also noticed that the cabin windows will be improved and that this model will be equipped with standard 18-inch wheels.
It appears that the interior of the 2018 Ford F-350 will be significantly redesigned. One of the first changes can be noticed on the seats and the dashboard. Inside this truck, you can expect the top-quality materials only. The finest leather covers the seats and the steering-wheel. The cabin is spacious enough, especially the headroom and leg room. Luxurious and comfortable, this cabin also provides the latest technology features. Some of them include an 8-inch touch screen, two LCD displays, My Ford Touch Infotainment system, climate control system, Bluetooth and smart phone connectivity, USB port, etc.
The new 2018 Ford F-350 will come in two versions when we talk about the power train. The first option is a 6.2-litre V8 unit that will make 385 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque, also used in 2019 F-250 , 2019 F-450 and 2019 Ford Raptor. The other comes with a 6.7-litre V8 that will provide 440 horsepower and 860 pound-feet of torque. Both of the versions will come with a six-speed automatic transmission. It has been rumored that the estimated top speed will be 94 mph. The safety and driver’s assist options are no exception, of course. You will be offered an adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, collision warning system, trailer sway control and a blind-spot monitoring that covers the trailer.
