Report – Get your 2018 Ford F-150 with modest price hike image

Taking home a 2018 model year F-150 is turning out as a sweet deal mainly because we’re dealing with an upgraded version, but also because the carmaker has decided to only modestly hike prices.

The facelifted 2018 Ford F-150 is eagerly awaiting to reach its first customers this fall, and official pricing details haven’t arrived just yet, but the Internet has seemingly caught wind of an order guide of the model. Allegedly, the entry-level engine for the refreshed pickup will be the new 3.3-liter V6 coming in lieu of the 3.5-liter V6. It’s set to become the standard on XL and XLT models and the prices are kicking off from 28,675 with destination for the XL Regular Cab, $32,760 for the SuperCab, and $35,215 for the SuperCrew. This is a $270 price hike against the predecessor engine. It should also arrive with the same performance credentials – 282 horsepower and 253 pound-feet of torque.

Meanwhile, the major announcement for the facelift is the introduction of a new 3.0-liter diesel engine – though eager adopters will need to be patient because it will land in summer 2018. So, no official figures for it until later this year or early 2018. For Limited models there’s also an updated standard adaptive cruise control system – but owners can also get it from the optional list on lower trim levels.
