Default Spied: 2018 Ford F-150 Diesel Hybrid?

see this link - http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2017/01...el-hybrid.html

It’s interesting that Ford is doing some double-duty camouflage testing with its most popular models. Could it be that both vehicles have a small diesel engine under the hood? There has to be some reason they were paired together. Regardless, we expect to see an updated half-ton Ford at either the Detroit or Chicago auto shows — most likely showing off Ford’s newest turbo-diesel powertrain. Here’s what our spy shooter sent us.

“The Ford F-150 and new Mustang will both get updates for the 2018 model year, and we’ve caught prototypes of each on the road during testing. The most significant change on these prototypes appears to be to the front fascia. We can see some new LED-ringed headlights peeking out from the camouflage.

“On sale since late 2014, the Ford F-150 is now due for its mid-cycle facelift. The prototypes in our photos show that the F-150 will get moderate design updates to the front and rear fascia, and to the headlights and taillights. The bigger news, though, might be under the hood, as the F-150 will finally get the diesel 3.0-liter V-6 that has been rumored for some time. The 5.0-liter V-8 will also be updated. Both engines will be mated to Ford’s new 10-speed automatic transmission.”

For Those Who Fought For It...

You can get a 10 speed in a current F-150 Ecoboost.
