This year will be in sign of Ford vehicles. This company is preparing many new models for 2018 season. There are redesigned Focus, tuned ST, and Shelby GT500 from cars range. Crossover class expects refreshed Explorer, Edge and Escape. Probably, the most interesting will be among trucks. Beside F-150, company is going to launch 2018 Ford F-550 heavy duty pickup. This truck is much larger than more popular F-150. Also, it is capable to do more than other smaller trucks. Commuting and driving in urban area are not best things to do with F-550. But, if you need serious machine for work, you are at right place.
2018 Ford F-550 engine
Big drivetrain is at must for 2018 Ford F-550. This truck will get power from 6.2-l V-8 engine. We suppose 380 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque are enough for hard work. Nevertheless, there are two other possibilities. Turbo-diesel engine provides more torque, while power suffers. On the other hand, bigger petrol unit can make more on both ends. So, with 6.8-l V-10 drivetrain, we can expect new F-550 to deliver 450 hp and probably over 500 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed automatic transmission will be the main option, if Ford fail to develop and launch new 8-speed gearbox.
2018 Ford F-550 design
It might not be the vehicle for showing off, but 2018 Ford F-550 has powerful appearance. Well, every product must lure its buyers with its exterior. So it is with pickup vehicles. New F-550 is bold and strong. Its grille, hood, roof, bed are making clear statement. However, its interior is not there to be elegant. Also, new truck is not competing in luxurious equipment used for cabin. But, drivers must feel great piece of comfort, especially at long working days. And Ford provides them with it. Soft seats, leather on the steering wheel and nice design of control panel are superbly mixed. There are also some detail, which makes this work machine a little bit stylish.
