The famous F-350 platform of Ford has been pretty popular with pickups, but there has not been any new vehicle emerging with that specific platform index. Why is that? Lately, there had been reports that Ford is saving its precious F 350 platform for something big. That “something big” is finally here – in the form of 2018 Ford Super Duty. This vehicle is definitely the most awaited vehicle in Ford and is expected to come out by the end of 2017.
Some interesting rumours have said that F-250 will get Raptor version for 2018. However, these rumours aren’t true, but new 2018 Ford F150 Raptor is quite impressive.
Not only does it have impressive visuals and stunning interior specs, but it surely lives up to its name in terms of super powertrain configurations, and drive train specs. Apart from that, fuel efficiency is also going to be a major upside for this upcoming vehicle. With renewed transmission spec and efficient power output phenomenon, 2018 Super Duty will surely be a delight for pickup lovers.
2018 Ford Super Duty Engine Options
As far as powertrain configurations are concerned, there have been many speculations. Nothing concrete has been achieved so far as Ford is keeping it close to its chest. However considering recent rumours, there might be 2 conceivable engine options available for 2018 Ford Super Duty.
- A remodelled base engine of 6.2 LITER V8 gasoline cylinder spec will be provided which can produce a max power spec of 316 HP and 397 lbs. feet of max torque.
- Another diesel engine will also be available at a 6.7 LITER turbocharged V8 cylinder configuration. This engine spec will yield around 440 HP of max power and 860 lbs. feet of max torque.
Transmission details have not been specified yet but sources indicate that an 8 speed automatic or a 6-speed TorqShift transmission will be coupled with the above-mentioned engine types.
The exterior design of 2018 Super Duty is going to turn out as a very innovative and spectacular phenomenon, with a redeveloped chassis. This would reduce the overall weight of the vehicle, thereby making it much swifter as well as more stable than it previously was. In addition to that, a lightweight aluminium casing will be done on parts with revamped bumpers, and a redesigned grille component. This 2018 Ford Super Duty will also have new chrome plates with a sturdier appearance.
Interior aspects of 2018 Super Duty will be refurbished with top quality materials in order to focus on the luxurious and comforting aspects of this car. Complete leather upholstery will be made with increased passenger and cabin space due to improved ride width. Additional power features will be included, which includes automatic climate control, power steering, an improved infotainment system with MyFord Touch tech, and dual LCD display units. Safety specs have also been redesigned to suit the level of improvement made to this car.
