Ford F-150 Limited gains Raptor power

2019 Ford F-150 Limited

2019 Ford F-150 Limited

"F-150 Limited customers create their own success". Allow us to introduce the 2019 Ford F-150 Limited, now with 20% more Raptor guts. Looking from the outside, though, you wouldn't know that the F-150 Limited packs that much power. The truck is their reward. That means if you must have the most opulent interior matched with the most powerful gas engine available, now you can do it. You'll be able to spec a 3.3-liter naturally aspirated engine for base trucks, a 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel, a 2.7-liter EcoBoost, the standard 3.5 EcoBoost and now the High Output EcoBoost if you're willing to spend $61,000 on the Limited luxury trim.

The 3.5L EcoBoost makes 450hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.

Inside, the Limited remains largely luxurious, with a suede headliner, unique leather seats, real wood accents, and more.

. Perhaps because the engine was previously only offered in a high performance package rather than a volume package, but in any case, Ford is marketing the new Limited as the most powerful truck in the segment - even though the Raptor already held that title. Ford didn't say how much the 2019 F-150 Limited will cost when it goes on sale later this year, but it's likely to build on the almost $63,000 base price of the 2018 model. Meanwhile, the 2019 Ram 1500's 5.7L V-8 produces 395 hp and 410 lb-ft, though an optional eTorque mild-hybrid system is capable of adding up to 130 lb-ft from a dead stop. That's more than enough to make it the most powerful truck in its class, upstaging Chevrolet and GMC's V8 models that make as much as 420 horsepower. Ford will announce specific pricing, fuel economy, and capability details closer to the model's on-sale date in the fall.
