Ford Puts Raptor Engine in 2019 F-150 Limited


Ford has just announced it will put its strongest pickup truck engine (that's not a diesel) into its top-of-the-line F-150 trim level, the Limited. That means if you must have the most opulent interior matched with the most powerful gas engine available, now you can do it.

Previously only available in the F-150 Raptor, the high-output 450-horsepower, twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 that generates 510 pounds-feet of torque will now be the standard engine for the 2019 Ford F-150 Limited model. The diesel engine will be optional. The Limited also will be the only Ford F-150 to sport a dual exhaust system.

The F-150 Limited will feature new Camel Back two-tone-leather laser-etched massaging front seats with an individually numbered nameplate on the center console. Standard Limited F-150 features will include a trailer brake controller, a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping and pre-collision safety systems, Sync 3, Wi-Fi access and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Expect this to be the most expensive half ton you can buy; pricing will be released closer to its on-sale date later this year.
