The 2018 Ford Super Duty models are expected to come without bigger changes, compared to 2017 models that came completely redesigned, with plenty of new things and improvements. As you probably know, company recently introduced a completely new Super Duty series. We saw plenty of interesting new things, but definitely the most important change is switch to all-aluminum body, just like we saw few years ago on F-150. This provided many benefits, but also brought some dose of skepticism among older generation of truck drivers. For the second year of production, we surely won’t see changes in design, but we could see some new features introduced. The 2018 Super Duty will come in the second half of next year.
2018 Ford Super Duty redesign and features
As we already mentioned, 2018 Ford Super Duty should come without bigger changes. Completely new models came just recently, with some significant changes. As you probably already know, new models feature a revolutionary aluminum body, while frame is mostly made of HSS. Construction of these models is on the same principle as on F-150. This brought many great benefits. First of all, new models are significantly lighter. They are for about 350 pounds lighter than before. Just like before, there will be three models in offer – F-250, F-350 and F-450. All of them now feature completely new look, with plenty of new details. Also, each of these models is available in many variants. There are three body styles – Regular Cab, Super Cab and Super Crew Cab. Also, there are five trim levels. Those are XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch Edition and Platinum.
2018 Ford Super Duty engines
When it comes to powertrain, 2018 Ford Super Duty will come in three variants. There are two gasoline and one diesel unit in offer. This is pretty much the same lineup as for the previous generation. However, two of these three engines came with improvements. Base 6.2 liter V8 gasoline engine features the same power of 385 horses, but max torque is increased from 405 to 430 pound-feet. Diesel engine also comes with more torque. It is now good for about 440 horsepower and 925 pound-feet of torque. All engines come in pair with TorqShift 6-speed automatic transmission. It is also worth to mention that gasoline engine are CNG and Propane capable.
