Anticipated 2018 Ford Models
Say goodbye to 2017 and hello to 2018! It will be an exciting year for many reasons but for Ford lovers: It will be extra exciting. Here are the top 3 most anticipated 2018 Ford models!
The first Ford Expeditions rolled off the Michigan Truck Plant assembly line in 1997. In that year, SUV customers bought up more than 214,000 of them. The Expedition was progressive both regarding its design and its efficient modular Triton V8 powertrains. The handsome new Expedition follows the trend set by the Ford F-150. It has ten times the sealant that’s found in the old one and promises to be far quieter on the road. Beneath the metal is an upgraded version of the fully boxed framed used in the F-150. The Expedition is available in two-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, and four-wheel drive with a low range-equipped transfer case. For the first time, Ford now offers an FX4 off-road package in the XLT-trim expedition. For $1,650, you get specifically tuned dampers from Hitachi, skid plates, a heavy duty radiator, 18-inch all-terrain tires and an electronic limited-slip rear differential with fully locking function. The technology inside this beautiful SUB rivals the Lincoln Navigator with heated and cooled multi-contour leather seats, inductive phone charging, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision assist and pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and a dual headrest-mounted entertainment system with 8-inch screens.
The 2018 Ford Bronco will use the same platform as the ongoing Ranger. The body on frame design, the solid rear axle, the rather basic suspension system as well as the ruggedness of the Raptor will be carried over, likely with minimal changes, to the Bronco. Unlike most other family crossovers out there, the 2018 Ford Bronco will not be soft and cushy. Instead, the car is expected to borrow some of the traits of the Wrangler. This means it will be built with off-road driving in mind. Expect it to have a soft and compliant suspension but with a rugged interior which will resist wear and tear much better than your regular crossover. On top of that, some models are expected to get dirt-resistant upholstery, waterproof instruments as well as auxiliary buttons and other improvements meant to make it a better off-road machine.The US 2018 Ford Bronco has been rumored to receive more interesting engines than the Ranger. For starters, it is expected to get a 2 or 2.3 liters turbocharged inline four as its base. This should develop over 250 horsepower and as much as 300 lb-ft of torque. It’s easy to see why Ford is bringing this beloved model back!
It isn’t called America’s best truck for no reason. The F-150 inherits three new or updated engines, a more handsome face, and more available active-safety technologies for 2018. The 2018 F-150 is sporting its most advanced powertrain lineup ever, so it’s no surprise that best-in-class torque and capability features come right along with it. If you want best-in-class payload, you got i. The F-150 can carry up to 3,270 lbs. It also has the best in class towing with a limit up 13,200 lbs. That’s just the beginning of F-150 best-in-class features. With choices that specialize in capability, efficiency and everything in between, F-150 can get the job done and then some.
