Super Duty range still consists of F-250, F-350 and F-450. Their variations extend to many in infinity. Single cab, Crew cab and Dual cab. Then each of these models is offered with an extended or flattered bed. The same number of equipment packages make the F-Series one of the largest on the market of pickup truck models. However, the 2018 Ford Super Duty carries primarily the label of a working vehicle. The one that is efficient and economical in relation to its performance. The transmission of loads and the driving force are what makes one decide to become the owner, one of the models of the Ford F truck.

Yet. With the 2018 Ford Super Duty Limited model, the company went a step further than its competitors. The F-Series is one of the best-selling truck series on the market. With the redesigned 2015 Ford F-150 model, all Ford pickup trucks have gone through a period of change. In addition to the new, modern design lines, the weight of the vehicle is reduced due to the use of aluminum parts by the construction of the vehicle.

Premium customers prefer luxury vehicles. Whether it’s high-end systems, advanced techs or just a design that lays out luxury in itself.

Ford did not pay special attention to the drives of this model. This leads us to conclude that regardless of the degree of luxury, the F-Series continues to run the all-new 6.7 L Power Stroke V8 engine. This engine has 440 hp and 870 lb-ft of torque. Combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission, vehicles with this drive unit will have much better performance than previous ones. But it’s not impossible to find an old engine in the F-Series.

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning

Everything that happens in Ford Motor Company attracts a lot of attention. This company has convinced us that it is one of the leaders in the automotive industry. All modern solutions and advanced technologies are a great confirmation of this. After the success of the all-aluminum F-150 model, every next move is followed with great attention. The company continued to chew the offer of models that use such technology and aluminum construction. For those who do not use their Ford truck only for working purposes next to the redesigned Ford Raptor, will be available another high-performance version. That’s the 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning. This is not an unknown name. For the third time, the Lightning truck will try to express itself fully.

Many of you will be wondering why Ford in general has the need for a return and a revival of the model, which was withdrawn from the market 12 years ago. Some stories, they must not remain unspoken. Ford Lightning is one of those stories. In 1993, with the collaboration of SVT (special vehicle team), Ford introduced a high performance model based on the F-150 pickup truck. This model was a direct competitor to the Chevy 454SS model. Equipped with a 5.8 L V8 engine that developed a power of 240 hp, it was produced for two years. The engine was combined with a 4-speed automatic transmission, taken from the F-350 model. The break from 1995 to 1999 interrupted the demand for such a model. Ford Lightning was produced in 28,000 copies, and in 2004 it completely disappeared from the scene.

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning

Specs

Why Ford wants the 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning to be marketed when the Ranger pickup model returns to the US market? Lightning truck, in addition to its fantastic performance, had a specific suspension and frame of construction. When he returned to the market for the second time, Ford Lightning went through the phase of engine change, as well as a series of modifications concerning the suspension. Then the vehicle powered a 5.4-liter 360-horsepower engine in combination with 4-speed AT.

As Ford’s biggest future surprise, we expect the 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning pickup truck. What has failed him, and what Ford can now offer with this name is a lightweight construction. Aluminum architecture, 500-600 pounds less than the 2004 model, a new engine and much more hp than it had. 2018 Ford Lightning is most likely to be equipped with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. With the new transmission, this new 2017 Raptor engine provides nearly 450 horsepower. You will agree that no one expects more. Sometimes ‘funniest’ pickup truck on the market, will return the smile on the face of many, and with less ‘horse’.

2018 Ford F-150 Lightning Release

The official specification information and the form in which the Lightning model will appear will not be available yet. Some sources report that the 2018 Ford F-150 Lightning is likely to return to a regular cab, short-bed configuration. Regardless of all the secrets yet, the new Lightning model can only be better than the one we had the opportunity to meet. The improvements that Ford recently leveraged through the pickup truck segment surpassed all expectations.
