2019 Ford F-150 Limited gets Raptor power


Lately, there’s been a cadence to F-150 product debuts. In 2015, the world was introduced to the all-new F-150 with the aluminum body. A year later, the Limited model was introduced that had all the bells and whistles.

In 2018, the Ford F-150 received a refresh, but there was no new Limited model. That changes for 2019 with a dose of extra power. Unlike previous Limited models, the 2019 F-150 Limited gets the same engine that’s in the Raptor.

The high-output EcoBoost V6 makes 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. A standard 10-speed automatic is the only transmission option. Limited receives a dual-exhaust system that is smoothly integrated into the rear bumper, similar to the Raptor’s setup.

The 360-degree camera system is standard on Limited. As is the FordPass Connect 4G LTE modem that can connect up to 10 devices.

The interior is updated over the previous version and from lesser F-150s by offering an available Camel Back two-tone. Like before, the Limited’s seats are heated, ventilated and massaging.

Signature 22-inch wheels. raised Limited lettering, and other design cues separate it from other models, letting everyone know you bought the best F-150. Like before, the Limited model is like checking all of the option boxes on the Platinum, with a few unique touches.

Unlike before, checking the box gets you a unique engine. Ford uses the Raptor engine in other products, like the Lincoln Navigator, but this is the first time they’ve offered in a F-150 that’s not the beloved Raptor.

Pricing is unknown. Expect to see the 2019 LImited, along with the rest of the 2019 F-150s, in showrooms later this year.
