2018 Ford F-150 Official Release Date
Just when you didn’t think it was possible, Ford introduces the new 2018 Ford F-150 which is now even tougher, smarter and more capable than ever before. As part of the best-selling truck lineup for the past 40 years, the F-150
has a lot of expectations to live up to and each year Ford exceeds those expectations and the 2018 model year is no different. The 2018 Ford F-150 has an official release date of fall of 2017 so unfortunately, we have a while to wait until the revised F-150 is available on the market but that doesn’t mean that we can't share all of its great updates and changes.
2018 Ford F-150 Exterior Changes
For the 2018 model year, Ford created the F-150 with an even more aggressive look. All Ford F-150 models receive new grilles, headlamps, and bumpers that create a wider and more planted stance and provide a more noticeable difference between the series. The F-150 features six all-new wheel designs as well, ranging from 17 inches to 22 inches in diameter. A new sculpted tailgate with deeper accent form and stamped "F-150" are paired with new tail lamp designs. A tailgate applique adds a horizontal element to the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited versions.
