As hot as the 2017 model of the Ford F-150 is, it pales in comparison to the number of changes coming with the 2018 model. While the latest version of America’s favorite pickup added a new engine and ten-speed automatic transmission for the best in towing and torque, the upcoming model year sees changes to every powertrain, and the addition of a diesel.

The latter is the engine we’ve been waiting for, and it’ll arrive next summer. A 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V6, its power and efficiency numbers are promised to top the class, while also enabling the F-150 to tow more than the current max of 12,200 lbs. The ten-speed automatic transmission that debuted last year will come standard with every mill save for the base 3.3-liter V6 (replacing the old 3.5-liter naturally-aspirated V6). On the visual end of things, Ford has cleaned up the truck’s overall look while giving each of the seven trims a unique front end treatment.
