2018 Ford F-150, Mustang Spotted Testing Together: Spy Shots

This week, Automotive News managed to acquire a fresh new batch of spy photographs containing a rare automotive twofer: the refreshed 2018 Ford F-150 and 2018 Ford Mustang, both in camouflage, being tested together.

You can view the gallery of new photos on the Automotive News website.

Both the Ford F-150 full-size pickup and the Ford Mustang pony car are expected to receive updates for the 2018 model year. Judging by the concentration of camouflage material on the truck, its cosmetic changes will reside on the front and rear fascias, likely including new headlight and taillight designs. The sides of the truck look unchanged from its current design.

The 2018 Ford F-150 is also expected to gain a new diesel engine option, possibly in the form of a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 unit, and an updated V8 now displacing 4.8 liters.

The Ford Mustang, meanwhile, should also boast freshened up headlights and taillights at the least, including new headlight LED rings that have been spotted on previous occasions. The pony car also appears poised to receive a factory quad-tip exhaust option on some models.

It’s likely that we’ll see the revamped, 2018 Ford Mustang bow next month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Whether or not a refreshed Ford F-150 will accompany it remains to be seen.

    They, FMC, better brighten up their LED DRL’s on the mustang. They are hardly visible in daylight, which tells me, why have them, if they’re not visible. kinda pointless. They should be called VOID’s…. Visible Only In Darkness.
