2019 Ford F-150 Limited is a luxury pickup with a Raptor heart
For customers who can’t decide between a Raptor and a Platinum
Ford has released a new range-topping version for its F-150 fullsize pickup truck that combines power and luxury in a convincing package.
According to Ford, the 2019 Ford F-150 Limited targets fans who love Raptor power but want a more upscale package. The upscale model’s highlight is the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 that was previously reserved to the F-150 Raptor.
On the Limited, the engine offers the same power and torque ratings as on the F-150 Raptor: 450 hp and 510 lb-ft (691 Nm) of torque. Looking from the outside, though, you wouldn’t know that the F-150 Limited packs that much power. The only visual hints are the dual exhaust tips integrated into new rear bumper cutouts.
Signature design elements also include the raised Limited lettering on the hood, polished aluminum 22-inch wheels, and satin-finish details such as the grille, tailgate applique, window trim, and door handles. The model also comes with standard power-deployable running boards, tailgate release and a twin-panel moonroof.
While it looks upscale from the outside, nothing can prepare you for the F-150 Limited’s opulent interior. The cabin combines luxurious materials such as Miko suede headliner, leather-topped instrument panel and door panels, ash swirl wood trim, and Camel Back two-tone leather upholstery.
Needless to say, the spec sheet lives up to the rest of the package. Highlights include the multi-contour front seats with lumbar support and massage, heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated captain’s front chairs, remote start, SYNC 3 with AppLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, FordPass Connect 4G LTE modem, B&O Play audio system, and a laser-etched plaque on the center console armrest bearing the vehicle’s serial number.
The 2019 Ford F-150 Limited is loaded with technology as well. A 360-degree camera with split-view display is standard, as are an integrated trailer brake controller, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Active Park Assist, and Lane-Keeping System.
The new range-topping F-150 will arrive in dealerships later this year.
