Ford will use the upcoming vintage touch to his best-selling in the US market, the F-150 . Surprised during winter tests, the F-150 photographed reveals a little more about its relifting.
Until now, Ford had managed to camouflage the centerpiece of the future restylage, namely the grille. The latter abandons its three bars to the profit of two centered bars and no longer goes down to the shield as on the current generation. These touch-ups bring him visually to the Ford Edge and Escape. With no doubt, the next Ford Expedition should also adopt this two-bar grille.
The aesthetic alterations also concern the front headlights which undergo the assault of the new grille in their center. They retain the same design on the wings. Always heavily camouflaged, the rear face also promises change.
Technically, the restyled F-150 will adopt the new 10-speed automatic transmission developed with General Motors. It will also offer a new 3-liter turbodiesel powerplant provided by Jaguar Land Rover.
We should know more quickly, even at the Detroit show next week. The refreshed F-150 will likely be unveiled sometime this year, and probably sooner than later. Expect it to be revealed along with diesel variant, too. Past spy shots indicate that it will use a 3.0-liter diesel from Jaguar Land Rover. It\’s unclear exactly when the company\’s newly announced hybrid F-150 will appear, but Ford promised it would arrive in time for 2020, and an old rumor said it would make its debut in 2019.
