2019 Ford F-150 Limited Offers Raptor Power In A More Upscale Package

Have you been secretly craving for a Ford F-150 Raptor but don’t exactly favor its look-at-me attitude? If so, check out the new 2019 Ford F-150 Limited, because it might do the trick for you.

The new version of the popular pickup truck uses the same engine as the Raptor, meaning a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6.

The total output produced remains untouched, at 450hp (456PS / 340kW) and 510lb-ft (691Nm) of torque. And the unit is likely paired to the same 10-speed automatic transmission, although Ford doesn’t say anything about it yet.

Satin-finish grille, window trim and door handles, tailgate appliqué, ‘Limited’ lettering, dual exhaust pipes integrated into the rear bumper and 22-inch polished aluminum wheels emphasize its character on the outside.

In the cabin, however, is where the new Ford F-150 Limited truly shines, with luxury features described by the Blue Oval using words such as “craftsmanship”, “quality” and “head-turning design”. Said to be raising the bar for “premium pickup trucks”, the model comes with leather trim, Miko suede headliner, heated and ventilated captain’s chairs with massage functions and heated steering wheel.

Each example includes a laser-etched plaque on the center console armrest, with its serial number, and other equipment present includes the 360-degree camera with split-view display, SYNC 3 infotainment system, with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Wi-Fi access, and Harman premium sound system.

The adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Active Park Assist and Lane-Keeping System are standard, whereas the Pro Trailer Backup Assist is optional.

“The most powerful light-duty pickup in America”, according to Ford, will arrive at dealers later this year.

    OF COURSE, Ford just HAS to fuss with the F-150 EVERY YEAR, while it lets other models rot on the vine. This pickup competition is OUT OF CONTROL. Wait until the economy tanks, Ford!

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      The economy has tanked before and the F-150 still remained the best selling vehicle.

      Economics don’t matter…

  • UhhHuhh

    L I M I T E D …lol…

    • Dr Professor Weezle Eye

      So true.

  • TheToadPrince..~~ToadSquad

    exactly what i was thinkin.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    The Raptor with this engine runs 0-60 in 5 second flat, this will be lighter.

    Holy crap, we’re talking about a F-150 that runs 0-60 in the fours!!!! That’s SCREAMING fast.

    • Taegon Lewis

      It’s a shame, we’ll never get to see a Lightning successor, to run faster times; than, the Limited Package, Ford’s currently offering. (In fact; I don’t know, if Ford’s ever going to make a successor of the Lighting, period. Doesn’t matter; if, it’s based on either, the F-150 or the New-Gen Ranger.)

      Imagine it; a F-150 that can run 0-60 in threes. (Or, at least, 3.5 seconds.) The spirit of, the GMC Syclone, would be proud.

    Do pick-up trucks do work anymore??

    • Mr. EP9

      Not all of them but some of them do.

  • Mr. EP9

    Lowkey SVT Lightning successor without the “sporty” look to it or the side exit exhaust.

    • Taegon Lewis

      Someday, the Lightning will get a legitimate (factory-built; not, modified) successor. Even, if it’s Ranger-based.

      Someday…

    Ford should give the Raptor a 600hp V8.

    • rodriguez256

      I think personally the Raptor has enough horsepower. What sets the raptor apart is it’s suspension, I believe that’s what most Raptor owners buy it for. At least now all the people that want that power but won’t take their Raptor off of pavement have a street truck with that engine now.

  • Paul

    Way to go Ford. I like the idea of a sleeper like this.

  • MarketAndChurch

    I don’t like the grille.

  • LOOKS GOOD. ADDED POWER WITHOUT THE SILLY.
