2018 Ford F-150 Lightning

Ford got us used to its innovations, new technologies and modernization of its vehicles. Nevertheless, the company knows to make some flashbacks with names of models which were very popular in the past. So it is now, with new F-150 truck. Model is exciting by itself, but company will go step further and launch the 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning as a trim for truck that is coming during next year.

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning history

First Lightning truck was released in 1993 as part of SVT sport lineup. Then, it used V8 engine with 5.8-l displacement and 240 hp. It compete the Chevy 454SS for two years before its production comes to an end. After some while, in 1999 Lightning was re-launched. With smaller engine, it offered more power and lasted for five years. This was more successful time with over 28,000 examples produced until 2004. Now, after it was discontinued 12 years ago, we expect new 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning.

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning performance

There is no much information about upcoming version of popular truck, but we expect 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning with high performance, significantly above base model. It is somehow linked with Ford Raptor, mainly because same engine could be used for both trucks. It is V8 rather than V6 Ecoboost. Will it be supercharged or twin-turbo, company is keeping under radar for our intelligence sources. Whichever option takes place under the hood of the new Lightning, be sure that a lot of power will come from it. We suppose that near or even over 500 horses is going to be crunched from it.

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning release date

New 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning will come after the base model hits the salons, and time schedule is still unconfirmed for it. We are listening closely and as soon as regular F-150 comes to production, we will be able to predict when we can expect performance-tuned Lightning truck. One thing is sure, it won’t be out before mid-2018.

    The Ford F-150 is my dream truck and a close friend of mine, he wants the older model at least the 2004. It would be nice to afford the both of these trucks. Can’t a girl dream? If only my dreams can come true. Been in love with Ford trucks since I was a younger girl. My dad had the F-250 with the short and square flat butt lol.

    I wonder if it’s going to beat the Srt10 ram. I hope it does because Ford needs to get back on top! Hopefully they make it AWD as well, but RWD is more fun!
