America’s favorite workhorse – the Ford F-150 half-ton pickup – is due for a mid-cycle refresh, probably for the 2018 model year, and a few recent spy photographs depict what might well be it. (Pics available at Autoblog.)
Spotted running around on public roads in partial camouflage, the aforementioned Ford F-150 looks like it’s bound to receive a brawny, two-bar grille like that found on the F-Series Super Duty; that detail can just be made out through a big, black shroud up front. Otherwise, we can infer from the encompassing, opaque covers on the headlights and taillights that new designs for those elements are likely coming.
Of course, the other big change expected – the addition of a diesel powerplant – has already been just-about-confirmed by a separate set of Ford F-150 spy photos. Other changes for 2018 ought to be relatively limited in scope, with tweaks to the powertrain, interior design, and feature set all possible.
