Yeah, as expected, they reverted the change. The editing user, DorianGrey14, said "If Ford confirms anything, post a link to the source FROM Ford stating so." Apparently that person did not bother to notice that FordService is an official Ford user account.

I know. I want them to post the information themselves. That way we have an irrefutable post from the FordService account, not a quoted message.

Hey guys,

Matt21, fsae150, and HuskerHarley are correct. I have verified that the 2018 F-150 will, in fact, be a 13th generation. We have also noticed that Wikipedia incorrectly notes it as a 14th generation, but there are no sources calling it as such. Also, thanks for the tag, Martian!

The way I see it, is if the truck is a whole new design, both inside and out, it's a new generation. A slight change to the headlights or tail lights aren't really a new generation, just like how they subtly changed the Mustangs and even Camaros.

If you look at the Wikipedia article's edit history, you can see where I tried correcting it, but some jackass keeps reversing the edits.
