CARS.COM — The biggest changes to the 2018 Ford F-150 take place under the hood, where Ford is adding a 3.0-liter diesel engine to its powertrain lineup. That eagerly anticipated engine won’t be available when the new F-150s arrive in dealerships, however. Additionally, the base engine will now be a naturally aspirated 3.3-liter V-6; it will replace the outgoing model’s 3.5-liter V-6, and Ford says it will provide better fuel economy.

Changes aren’t just taking place under the hood, though, as there will be some cosmetic tweaks to the exterior too. All F-150 models will receive new grilles, headlamps and bumpers. Grilles on lower trims and some Sport models will be mesh and feature “nostrils”; some higher trim levels will have what Ford calls a “twin I-beam” grille. These two main styles will be further differentiated by a variety of feature-package-dependent paint and material coatings. Overall, the new F-150 will look more planted and lower to the ground. These changes also bring the truck’s design more in line with the newly redesigned Super Duty lineup.

On the tailgate, some lower trim levels will have a large F-150 logo stamped into the sheet metal. Higher trim levels will have a plastic applique trim piece in place of the stamped logo. Check out the gallery below for more and click here for more from PickupTrucks.com.
