With newly standard safety gear, a new diesel engine, and increased power for its top-of-the-line turbocharged V6, the 2019 F-150 has never been so rugged and capable. With six main trims, three cabins, three bed lengths, six engines, and a variety of wheelbases, there are literally hundreds of F-150 configurations available. That should make it easy, then, to create the perfect full-size truck for your personal needs.
What's new for the 2019 Ford F-150?
Balance rugged power with off-road adventure in the new 2019 Ford F-150. The 2019 model offers a few new features. One of those is making standard the forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking. All F-150 trim levels will both warn you of an oncoming crash and actively try to avoid it. Another can be found on the Limited and Raptor trim models, where the top-of-the-line turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine just got more powerful, with an upgraded output of 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the long-awaited diesel engine has arrived. The F-150 diesel is designed for drivers who do more towing than average.
What are the 2019 Ford F-150 configurations?
First, you'll want to select the cabin - regular, extended SuperCab, and the spacious SuperCrew - that provides enough passenger space for your work crew or family members. The regular and extended SuperCab can be paired with one of two bed sizes: the standard 6-foot-6-inch bed or the long 8-foot bed. The latter is perhaps the best choice for drivers who haul long items, like plywood sheets, on a regular basis. The SuperCrew comes with either the standard bed or the short 5-foot-6-inch bed.
The 2019 Ford F-150 also offers six main trims - the base, XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited - along with the off-road-ready Raptor. Depending on how much you're willing to spend, each trim level supplies increasing convenience and luxury - or, in the Raptor's case, increasing off-road capabilities.
When can we expect the 2019 Ford F-150 diesel?
Ford's turbocharged 3.0-liter diesel V6 engine is finally here! It doesn't matter whether you're in the towing and hauling game for work or pleasure; the new diesel powertrain moves family campers and construction supplies with equal skill. Paired with the smooth-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission, this engine delivers 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque for ample towing capabilities. Properly equipped, the diesel engine helps this full-size truck tow up to 11,400 pounds' worth of conventional trailer. F-150s with this engine can haul max payloads of 1,940 pounds.
What's the 2019 Ford F-150 towing capacity? How much can it haul?
Capabilities vary quite a bit, depending on body style and powertrain. However, with the right configuration, this full-size American truck can tow up to 13,200 pounds. That's 1,000 pounds more than the Silverado 1500 can handle. If you've got an especially big boat, you're going to need the F-150.
Ford's popular pickup is equally ready to tackle massive payloads. Properly equipped, the F-150 can haul up to 3,270 pounds. Whether you're moving cement blocks or a tailgate's worth of beer and hotdogs, this truck gets the job done.
