Ford F-150

At the Ford booth, there was a new face for the F-150 pickup truck, along with some substantial updates under the skin to make it smarter and more efficient. Perhaps due to pressure from Nissan and General Motors, Ford finally introduced an optional 3.0-liter turbodiesel for the F-150, as well as a smaller-displacement 3.3-liter gas-powered V-6 engine to replace the standard 3.5-liter. On the tech side, the F-150 will now function as a WiFi hotspot, and offer automatic emergency braking. Overall, think of these as enhancements, not an overhaul of the aluminum-bodied truck.
