2019 Ford F-150 vs 2018 Ford F-150
Among the all-time favorite American pickups, the Ford F-150 always finds a way to stay ahead of the pack with a feature list that’s constantly being expanded and improved. 2019 has proved to be no different for the model, which has made several exciting changes to its lineup. Keep reading to explore what changes have been made to the F-150 for the 2019 model year in this comparison of the 2019 Ford F-150 and the 2018 Ford F-150.
Introduced to the F-150 for the first time in the 2018 model year, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking is designed to warn drivers of potential collision risks on the road ahead and can even automatically apply the brakes if a collision is imminent. At the time, this intelligent system was unavailable on the lower-level XL and XLT trims and only offered standard on the Limited model. For 2019, Ford has generously merged this feature into the Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite, making it standard across all 2019 F-150 configurations.
2019 Ford F-150 Limited and Raptor New Features
For the new model year, Ford pampers the Limited trim with a series of enticing upgrades. On the 2018 model, drivers are given a standard 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 capable of producing 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. For the 2019 model year, Ford raises the F-150 Limited to the Raptor’s legendary 3.5-liter high-output twin-turbocharged V6. The upgraded engine gives the Limited new life, hammering out an estimated 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque, plus a maximum towing capacity of 13,000 lbs. when equipped with the optional tow package.
The Raptor enters the 2019 model year with a series of exciting changes as well. Both the Limited and the Raptor now come standard with a 36-gallon fuel tank – a 10-liter boost from the standard 26-liter tank of previous models.
The revamped Raptor now also features class-exclusive Fox Racing shocks with Live Valve Technology. This technology set continuously and intelligently adjusts compression damping in real-time to deliver the ideal ride for any terrain or driving situation. Finishing the 2019 Raptor's update list, the new Trail Control System feature serves as low-speed cruise control for terrain-crawling adventures.
