It seems an unlikely alliance - with Ford partnering with ROUSH Racing to enhance its hulking F-250. Though the two brands have been frequent collaborators on the sport market (delivering turbocharged Mustangs to the rally scene), the notion of them applying the same quicksilver treatment to a full-ton hauler has left many critics baffled.

We find, however, that we can easily accept this idea. After all, who can’t see the value in a sport-tuned F-250?



According to the Free Press, the 2018 F-250 has been redefined by ROUSH. This platform has been fused with 20-inch aluminum-alloy rims, delivering an aggressive stance; while 35.3-inch BF Goodrich K02 tires promise all-terrain value, boasting wide interlocks and stiffened sidewalls. Fender flares line the sides and combat debris; and a newly raised suspension promises an extra 1.5-inches of ground clearance (this ensures a total of 10 inches, allowing the platform to roll over every obstacle).

To further delight drivers: despite the extra weight these new features may bring, they demand no compromise of performance. The 2018 F-250 still yields best-in-class power, generating up to 4,315 payload pounds and 13,300 trailering pounds. This all pairs with a robust V8 engine that delivers 435 HP on the highway.

Are you as thrilled as we are?

Hybrid performance no longer underwhelms - with Ford introducing its 2018 F-250 to the North American market. This Super Duty platform has been thoroughly refreshed, emphasizing premium power with every rev.

Prepare, Alberta, for the ultimate hybrid experience.



According to PickupTrucks.com, the 2018 F-250 has been transformed into a potent EV - courtesy of a partnership between Ford and XL Hybrids. Anchoring this platform is an advanced dual powertrain, which combines a 6.2L V8 with a 1.8-kWH lithium-ion battery pack. A front-mounted inverter delivers a steady performance band, sending bursts of torque to the AWD; while an XLink telematics controller assesses every rev, optimizing both fuel levels and air intakes to ensure maximum capability.

The result is a hybrid that can achieve 385 HP and 430 lb.-ft of torque while in traditional combustible mode - and then generate an additional 220 lb.-ft of torque when engaging its lithium-powered throttle. This ensures a 0 to 60 run of 6.7-seconds and a maximum tow rating of 15,000 pounds. Compromise is a thing of the past.

The 2018 F-250 Super Duty will be available in limited North American markets - but, should it prove popular, Ford may expand its production schedule. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.

According to Trucking Info, Ford will soon premier a new F-Series powerhouse. This Super Duty - launched in partnership with XL Hybrids, an aftermarket tuner - will redefine performance, connecting drivers to an eco-friendly experience. With every press of the pedal achieve a 25% decrease in both emissions and fuel consumption.

How is this possible? The 2018 F-250 will be fused with an exclusive XL3 drivetrain - a system that blends a 295-volt traction motor with an advanced 1.8-kWh lithium-ion battery. These technologies will complement the truck’s 6.2L PowerStroke engine, redistributing torque to ensure a more efficient ride. They’ll lessen overall HP demands, while simultaneously optimizing fuel consumption; and this will provide drivers with MPG capabilities never thought possible before.

No official release date has been given for the 2018 F-250. Critics anticipate, however, that production will begin soon - with Ford and XL Hybrids wishing to introduce North America to exceptional economy.
