Research has shown that the F-series pickup trucks are among the most selling in the auto market. The Ford Company is having its plans underway to release the next generation of the F-series. We expect it to be in the market by 2018 as the Ford F-250 Super Duty.
The Ford might not have already furnished the market with sufficient information concerning this machine. However, we should look forward to some element of re-design, entailing a more reliable powertrain. It is a very competitive market and therefore the manufacturer is expected to have updated the exterior and interior features so as to keep up with the rivals.
2018 Ford F-250 Exterior
From the outside look, this model of the F-250 will be a huge pick-up truck with a very nice oval design. As for the body structure, strong steel and lightweight aluminum material have been used. This will work to improve aerodynamic power and fuel efficiency.
As for the front part, the grille has been re-designed with two large chrome bars. To make the pickup look up more elegant, the frame has been removed at the front end. LED technology has been adopted on the vertical headlights so as to improve on the visibility. A huge bumper has been fitted so as to protect the delicate parts of the frontal areas. With this, the exterior of this vehicle comes with an aggressive look.
There could also be an improved suspension coming along with this pick-up truck. This will be helpful especially on the rough terrains.
2018 Ford F-250 Interior
There will be a more comfortable and luxurious cabin, featuring the latest infotainment system. The base model 2018 F250 Super Duty will be coming with the regular 2-door styling, Super-Cab with four doors and the Crew Cab with four doors as well. The standard features would be smart-phone integration, premium audio system with satellite radio, CD/MP3 player, Bluetooth audio connectivity.
There will be enough legroom and headroom in the interior. The high-leather upholstering on the adjustable seats will be there to provide extra comfort. The modern HVAC system automatically regulates the interior temperatures. The dashboard has been designed in a simple manner, with a big large screen where most of the control operations take place.
There will also be driver assistance and safety features. These include premium safety belt, standard safety belt, navigation control, traction control, emergency braking system and line departure warning system.
There will be a 6.2-liter V8 petrol engine and 6.7-liter turbocharged v8 engine to power this machine under the hood.
There will be a six-speed paired with the gasoline powertrain. This will be able to produce 385 hp and an estimate of 440 hp. We are yet to be informed of the particulars concerning acceleration, top speed and fuel efficiency.
Price and Date of release
There is yet to be a formal communication from Ford as regards to the price and date of release of the 2018 Ford F-250. We, however, hope that it will be in the market towards the end of 2017 or early 2018, costing somewhere between $34,000 and $60,000.
