The Ford F-150 is the best-selling truck in North America – and it’s easy to see why. No other pickup offers the continuous innovation and sheer capability of the F-Series. It’s the perfect rig for work or play. And with seven trim levels available, there’s an F-150 for everyone.
Expected 2019 Ford F-150 cab and powertrain configurations
In 2018, the F-150 received significant powertrain upgrades. As such, the 2019 model is expected to carry over essentially unchanged.
Like most pickups, the F-150 is available in an array of configurations. Cab choices include Regular Cab, SuperCab, and SuperCrew. Plus, there are three available bed lengths.
Then there are the powertrain options. Engine choices include:
- 3.3L V6 (290 hp and 265 lb-ft.)
- 2.7L twin-turbo V6 (325 hp and 400 lb-ft.)
- 3.5L twin-turbo V6 (375 hp and 470 lb-ft)
- 5.0L V8 (395 hp and 400 lb-ft.).
- 3.5L twin-turbo V6 (450 hp and 510 lb-ft) found in the Raptor model
- 3.0L Powerstroke turbodiesel (250 hp and 440 lb-ft.).
The base 3.3L engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic. All others get a 10-speed unit. Rear-wheel drive comes standard across the board, with optional four-wheel drive available.
Anticipated 2019 Ford F-150 trim levels
The 2019 Ford F-150 is expected to have the same trim level choices as the outgoing model. These include XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited, and Raptor.
Trucks are made for work, and the XL trim level has always been about getting the job done with no frills attached. But that doesn’t mean it’s uncomfortable – far from it. It offers all the necessities such as air conditioning and a color driver information display. Trailer sway control and a pre-wired trailer connector also come standard. Adding the 101A package adorns the truck with power windows and locks, as well as some other essentials.
The XLT comes standard with all of the features from the XL’s optional 101A package. It can also be had with an optional 301A package, which includes amenities like heated mirrors and a rearview camera. If that’s not enough, there’s the available 302A luxury package with upgrades such as the SYNC3 infotainment systems and a panoramic sunroof.
Most of the features from the 302A luxury package come standard on the Lariat model, as does dual-zone climate control and leather upholstery. Two luxury packages are also offered: 501A and 502A. Within these bundles, you’ll find conveniences such as a surround-view camera system, an automated parallel parking system, and adaptive cruise control.
As the name implies, the King Ranch Edition comes decked out in a leather-clad, western motif. It also comes standard with the all niceties found in the 502A luxury package.
The Platinum trim level is a high-end, street-oriented model. Power running boards, 20-inch wheels, and wood trim come standard, as do the features found in the 502A package.
At the top of the list, there’s the Limited model with all its bells and whistles. Highlights include 22-inch wheels, upgraded leather upholstery, and unique styling elements. Naturally, the Limited also comes equipped with the amenities found in the 502A bundle.
The Raptor isn’t like any other F-150. It’s a purpose-built, off-road rig with a long-travel suspension and special four-wheel drive system. Plus, it gets the high-performance version of the 3.5L twin-turbo engine, along with a uniquely aggressive exterior. A limited-slip differential and bead-lock wheels complete the effect.
