See the New Design of the 2018 F-150: Available at Borgman Ford This Fall

May 11th, 2017


All-New 2018 Ford F-150: Coming this fall to Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids, MI

Borgman Ford is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the newly-redesigned 2018 Ford F-150 to our showroom in Grand Rapids, MI this fall. One of the things we’re most excited about is the fresh new redesign, which communicates visually what any Ford F-150 owner will tell you: “It’s tough.”

As many have pointed out, the design of the New F-150 grille is a faithful nod to its F-Series roots. This article published in the Official Ford Media Center explores some of the different influences on the 2018 Ford F-150’s design, and F-Series heritage was one of them. Read more about this and other facets of the Built Ford Tough design DNA below and download the latest fact sheet.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

18FordF-150_FactSheetThAlong with the new 2018 F-150’s more powerful engine lineup, high-strength materials and class-exclusive technologies, its new exterior design conveys a relentless focus on innovation while paying homage to nearly 70 years of the purpose-built, work-tested Built Ford Tough brand promise.

For 2018, F-150 takes signature F-Series design language to new levels by building on its solid billet-milled visual cues and broad stance, while harmonizing with the all-new Super Duty lineup.

According to Ford truck designers, creating the next chapter in Built Ford Tough design comes down to three main concepts – understanding F-Series design heritage, knowing the wants and needs of Ford truck customers, and applying a dose of craftsmanship where pen meets paper.

“We call our F-Series customers ‘bold guardians of the brand,’” says Ford truck design chief Gordon Platto. “These customers know our Built Ford Tough DNA, and they want their trucks to convey strength, capability, boldness and power – without being ‘in your face’ aggressive.”

The team meets multiple times with truck owners throughout the design process in an effort to understand how they use their trucks and what they want in terms of features and style. Recent immersions involved designers, engineers and product marketers embedding with owners to gain a deep understanding of customer routines and develop owner personas to refine Built Ford Tough design DNA.

Take West Michigan Adventures to the extreme with the New Ford F-150 Raptor

Go Anywhere in West Michigan with the New Ford F-150 Raptor from Borgman Ford

For West Michigan’s most daring thrill-seekers, Borgman Ford is proud to offer the New Ford F-150 Raptor, a pickup designed top to bottom for adventure. For 2017, the Ford F-150 Raptor features a high-tech Terrain Management System that allows you to tackle whatever Michigan throws your way, whether you’re on pavement or not.

This article published in the Official Ford Media Center tells more about the advanced Terrain Management System, as well as how some of the features we’re designed to improve your driving experience no matter what road you’re on.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

When the all-new F-150 Raptor hit showrooms last fall, few could foresee the extent of the innovations beyond its high-output engine and new skin. Along with all the power and agility gains comes the most advanced drive mode system in its class – a cutting-edge Terrain Management System™. It is enabled by an all-new dual-mode transfer case that incorporates both all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive systems and electronic lockers to deliver the ultimate multi-terrain experience.

To give Raptor drivers more performance and capability both on-road and off, Ford Performance engineers developed this all-new transfer case to manage the distribution of power between front and rear wheels. Key to that is clutch-based, on-demand all-wheel-drive capability for everyday driving, including all-weather mode, while also providing a mechanically locked, durable four-wheel-drive system for confidence in severe off-road driving environments.

When combined with the non-sequential 10-speed transmission and high-output EcoBoost® engine, Raptor can deliver its 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque more efficiently for the ultimate driving experience – whether you’re on the road or way, way off.

“Raptor’s transfer case provides the best of both worlds, with the natural benefits from all-wheel drive, such as increased traction in rain and snow, as well as extreme off-road capability that comes with a mechanically locked system,” says Tony Greco, Ford F-150 Raptor program manager.

Ford engineers sought to enhance the daily driving experience of Raptor while preserving its ultimate off-road performance. With the clutch-based feature of the transfer case, drivers can travel on-road using the 4×4 auto setting, which delivers the benefit of four-wheel drive without the repercussions of component damage or driveline binding – something that can occur when drivers try to use mechanically locked systems on high-traction surfaces like pavement.
