The upcoming 2018 Detroit Auto Show (aka. NAIAS) is preparing to be one of the best pickup truck shows of the last decade. Why? Where else might you see two all-new full-size trucks (not concepts), and possibly an all-new midsize truck? Here they are in alphabetical order. This is all we are able to share at this time.
2019 Chevy Silverado 1500
GM has been working on the next Silverado for some time as evidenced by all of the prototypes we have seen over the last year. The all-new 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 half-ton is first to make its world debut at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Chevrolet showed the Z71 Trail Boss version of the truck in Texas last month, but just for a brief moment. The company is promising a new design, more power options, and much more. We do not know many details yet, but we will this Saturday January 13th, 2018. Please come back to TFLtruck.com for all the details.
2018 Ford F-150 Diesel
Ford is bringing the first ever F-150 Diesel to Detroit this year. The company is delivering on a promise made a year ago to bring a turbo-diesel half-ton to market in 2018. Indeed, the 3.0L Power Stroke V6 will produce 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Ford is targeting 30 MPG on the highway.
That’s not all we are expecting from Ford. The company has not officially confirmed it, but the North American version of the 2019 Ford Ranger is expected to debut at this year’s show. Not many details are know yet, but come back on Sunday, January 14th, 2018 for an update.
2019 Ram 1500
Ram will not be left on the sidelines, as the company is bringing the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 lineup to Detroit. This is also a complete redesign as Ram is setting their sights on GM and Ford for pickup truck sales leadership. This is not just a refresh, the next Ram 1500 is promising new design, style, and plenty of configuration options. Please come back on Sunday, January 15th, 2018 for all the details!
