2018 Ford F 150 Design
Some key exterior style settings go all the way, from the XL base to the top-trim Limited. A new grid and lighthouses are evolving just steps away from the truck’s Super Twenty Twin Bar motif. Flip-up bars on F-150 Laires equipped with the Sport Package receive a body color treatment. Back, the new taillamps support a sculpted tailgate with an F-150 logo stamped. The King Ranch, Platinum and Limited get a new horizontal application on the hatchback for an exclusive touch. Six new wheel models, ranging from 17 to 22 inches, are also making their debut for 2018.
Interior revisions include a pair of new trim colors for the seats. The 2018 Ford F 150 Platinum offers a Dark Marsala tonality option, and the top-trim trim trimmers sees the arrival of a Navy Pier color theme. Shoemakers Sport and Lariat Sport can specify false carbon-fiber brackets, and the King Ranch gets specific seats called Kingsville, which look appropriately royal.
A significant crop of technology and infotainment options join the already generous F-150 options list. The Adaptive Cruise Control has been upgraded and can now complement heavy traffic, a new pre-collision assistance system including pedestrian detection, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot available allowing users to connect up to 10 devices without Bang & Olufsen audio system meets the entertainment needs. Blind head monitoring, line assistance, a 360 degree camera, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto remain on the list of options.
