2019 Ford F-150 Limited Gains 450-HP Raptor Engine

Truck

Ford claims the updated F-150 Limited is the most powerful light-duty pickup in America.

Ford has given the F-150 Limited a substantial power upgrade for the 2019 model year. While the premium pickup truck’s 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine was previously only available with 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque on tap, Ford is introducing a more powerful version with a meaty 450 hp and 510 lb-ft. Yes, that’s right – it now has the same power output as the hardcore Raptor. According to Ford, this makes the F-150 Limited the most powerful light-duty pickup in America.

“F-150 Limited customers create their own success. The truck is their reward,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “They wanted more power, so we combined Raptor’s engine with Limited’s business-class features to deliver Baja fierceness, boardroom style and the grit to tackle tough jobs.” To enhance the V6 soundtrack, the 2019 F-150 Limited also sports a new dual exhaust system with exhaust tips smoothly integrated into new rear bumper cutouts.

In addition to the power bump, Ford’s updated posh pickup features a luxurious cabin with two-tone Camel Back leather upholstery as well as a heated steering wheel and new massaging and ventilated captain’s chairs offering better lumbar support. Each new F-150 Limited also includes a laser-etched plaque on the center console armrest bearing its serial number.

“It was important for us to get this interior just right as we continue to raise the bar for premium pickup trucks,” said Aileen Barraza, Ford color and materials manager. “The materials we chose to incorporate are authentic, distinctive and durable.” “Limited” lettering on the hood, aluminum 22-inch wheels, a satin-finish grille and tailgate applique, and satin-finish window trim and door handles round off the new F-150 Limited’s lavish exterior flourishes.

Being the most luxurious F-150 available, Ford hasn’t skimped on tech. As standard, the F-150 Limited comes with adaptive cruise control with stop and go functionality), pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, active park assist, and a lane-keeping system. Also included is a 360-degree camera, and a built-in trailer brake controller, while audiophiles will appreciate the advanced Harman sound system.

For an additional cost, you can also equip Ford’s optional Pro Trailer Backup Assists, which makes maneuvering easier by enabling the truck to steer itself using a knob to control its direction. The truck will then automatically follow the course selected. Ford hasn’t announced pricing details yet but has confirmed the 2019 F-150 Limited will go on sale later this year.
