Ford Caught Testing an Unlikely Pair of New Vehicles Together



Quote:
Both the Ford Mustang and F-150 will be getting updated for the 2018 model year and it seems Ford is out testing the pair together.

Spy photographers have caught both models testing together, with the Mustang wearing more camouflage than the F-150 pickup. Expect the sports car to get a moderate, mid-cycle facelift with the most significant changes happening to the front end. Although itís heavily camouflaged, we can see new LED-ringed headlights peeking from underneath. In the rear, it appears the tail lights will also undergo some changes for the updated model.

Expect to see the companyís new 10-speed automatic transmission join the Mustangís lineup, the same unit co-developed with GM and used in the new Chevrolet Camaro.

Since the current F-150 has been on the market since 2014, itís time for it to receive a nice update too. Like the Ford Mustang, it appears the front and rear fascias will be changed as well as the headlightsand the tail lights. The bigger news is that Ford will finally outfit the F-150 with the long-rumored 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine. The automaker will also update the 5.0-liter V8 engine, and both powerplants will be mated to the new 10-speed automatic transmission.

Funny how these articles pop up just before their release, why always the same sales tactic? Like Ford had no knollege twenty photographers and car and driver magazine was not at the company open bar and lunch provided at the introduction.

A related topic, our plant in Sharonville is being readied for equipment to assemble the 10 speed tranny. The Lavonia plant has the main assembly line and we get the low volume line.

Nice, is that an auto? 10 speeds is impressive but I wonder how strong all those watch sized gears would be?

Yes, it's an automatic. I sure hope it's strong! I have 6 speeds in both my Fusion and the wife's Taurus X and I really like them. I hear the 10 speed is supposed to be in the new Bronco also.
