Take a look at the exhaust system on this Ford F-150 test truck. Thanks to Jacob S, we get a detailed look at a dual exhaust system on this F-150 truck at a Ford facility in Michigan. There are more questions here than answers, so please help us out if you know and can share any details.
We know that Ford is working on an updated power plant lineup for the 2018 F-150 of no fewer than five engines. There is a base 3.3L naturally aspirated V6 engine, two EcoBoost V6 engines, a “Coyote” V8, and a 3.0L turbo-diesel V6 that is coming later in spring of 2018, according to Ford.
Currently, only the 2017 Ford Raptor comes with a dual exhaust system from the factory. Those outlets are round. The tips on the black truck pictured here are squared-off. Their cross-section is somewhere between two and three inches, visually comparing it to the 2-inch hitch receiver.
The camouflaged truck you see in the image below has the updated 2018 tail-lights, which the black truck does not. Ford is working to boost power and efficiency across the engine lineup. We are looking forward to learn more about this.
Will this exhaust system make it to production in 2018 or later? Is this a personal truck with an aftermarket system? We cannot answer this question yet.
Here is the latest information that we know about the 2018 Ford F-150 engine lineup.
