These Are the 3 New 2018 Trucks We’re Looking Forward To

Chevrolet

Trucks continue to be captains of the road.

Their capability, performance, and durability are almost unmatched. These are the trucks that everyone has their eyes on, including us.

With the 2018 models gracing your local dealerships soon, here are the three new models we’re most excited to see.

2018 Ford F-150

An American classic, the Ford F-150 has become a gold standard by which others measure trucks. A big reason for its continued popularity rests in its versatility.

Ford boasts its F-150 lineup has some of the most advanced powertrain options ever assembled. It’s hard to argue with their logic given the 2018 models come with a maximum payload capacity of 3,270 pounds and a maximum towing capacity of 13,200 pounds.

Another way Ford has stayed ahead of competitors is with vehicle innovations. Ford constructed the new F-150 with military-grade aluminum alloy. The result is a truck that’s 700 pounds lighter, resulting in a more agile driving experience while maintaining its rock-solid durability.

Overall, the 2018 Ford F-150 combines the might of driving one of the most powerful road vehicles with modern innovations to delight even the stingiest drivers.

2018 Chevrolet Colorado

The Chevrolet Colorado belies its smaller size with impressive performance capabilities. When equipped with the 3.6L V6 engine, the truck achieves the best-in-class maximum horsepower of 308.

And if you want to save money at the pump, you can select the 2.8L Turbo-Diesel engine that earns up to 30 highway miles per gallon.

Meanwhile, a trademark of any truck is how much it can tow. Again, the Chevrolet Colorado surprises with its towing capacity of 7,700 pounds—with the 2.8L Turbo-Diesel engine.

All these factors combine to show that while the Colorado won’t take up much space, it packs a punch capable enough to handle most jobs.

2018 Ford F-150 Raptor

The Raptor trim of the Ford F-150 is the pinnacle of capability. The twin-turbo V6 engine delivers a heart-pounding 450-horsepower. And the 10-speed automatic transmission helps to propel the road warrior from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a mere 5.1 seconds.

The Raptor can handle your off-road adventures with ease. The standard all-wheel-drive system, coupled with the FOX Racing Shox, allows you to experience smooth handling over rough road terrains.

Ultimately, the Ford F-150 Raptor is where it’s at when you’re looking for the ultimate performance machine.
