Ford Puts Raptor Engine in 2019 F-150 Limited

Ford Puts Raptor Engine in 2019 F-150 Limited

With 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, the V6 in the Raptor is the most powerful half-ton engine on the market and for 2019, that engine will be offered in the F-150 Limited as well - bringing premium power to the premium luxury truck.

Visually, the Limited sports 22-inch wheels and raised lettering on the hood, not to mention a satin finish grille and tailgate applique, window trim, and door handles.

At the moment there's an nearly insatiable demand for incredibly luxurious pickup trucks in the United States, so Ford is really ramping things up by extending the availability of its most powerful petrol engine to include models other than the Raptor.

But for the 2019 model year the stunning high-output version of the engine will have its availability extended to the regular F-150, albeit in its top-of-the-range Limited trim level.

Complementing the upgraded performance, the Limited will feature a new dual exhaust system integrated into new rear bumper cutouts.

'Mission: Impossible - Fallout' takes top spot at box office
Overseas, in about 40 percent of the foreign marketplace, Fallout will add an estimated $ 92 million this weekend. The "Ant-Man" sequel is close to $400 million worldwide, but it's not a contender for The Billion Club.

Should the Ford F-150 Raptor be a little too brutish for everyday driving, the Blue Oval has an answer. The only engine that comes close (besides Ford's own second-generation EcoBoost) is the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, whose 6.2L V-8 will produce 425 hp and 450 lb-ft for 2019.

DETROIT -Ford is adding a Raptor roar to its F-150 Limited pickup in the automaker's latest thrust in the hypercompetitive truck sector. An integrated trailer brake controller is a standard, along with a 360-degree camera with split-view display.

The 2019 Limited will be offered with Camelback two-tone upholstery and a suede headliner.

F-150 Limited also features driver-assist technology. Hand-finished ash wood trim adorns the interior, and there's a laser-etched plaque on the center console armrest with the truck's serial number. The upscale model's highlight is the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 that was previously reserved to the F-150 Raptor.
