Ford is providing diesel truck fans with a reason to celebrate the start of 2018 with the introduction of its first-ever F-150 Power Stroke diesel. The new truck will be available in the spring, and joins the larger F-Series Super Duty trucks that have featured Power Stroke motors for some time.
Four of North America's leading truck manufacturers have announced they will unveil new vehicles at The Work Truck Show 2018. Chevrolet Commercial Vehicles will reveal its Silverado 4500HD and 5500HD chassis cab trucks. Ford Commercial Vehicles will launch a new commercial vehicle. Hino Trucks will introduce a line of Class 7 and 8 trucks. International Truck will debut what it's calling "the driver's ultimate work truck." Additional OEMs with press conferences scheduled include Ram Commercial, which plans to announce work-truck-related news for the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 truck, Isuzu Commercial Truck of America Inc. and Mack Trucks Inc.
Full-size diesel truck fans have reason to celebrate this year as Ford delivers the first-ever F-150 Power Stroke diesel with a targeted EPA-estimated 30 mpg highway rating, a best-in-class 11,400 pounds of towing capacity and 2,020 pounds of payload capacity, plus best-in-class diesel 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque.
Just because you drive a truck for work doesn't mean you don't want to drive in comfort, that's the message being sent by truck manufacturers as a big part of their 2018 offerings. From Ford's upscale and powerful Super Duty Limited to the sporty but rugged midsized Honda Ridgeline, there are a wide range of features in this year's pickups to make driving more comfortable. Plus, there are a number of other advancements and upgrades that you may find appealing when it comes to the selection of a new pickup.
