The most popular truck in the US is in salons. The F-150 pickup is still waiting for few updates. However, most of them will come with 2019 Ford F-150. The vehicle is already at top of every chart in selling records. Experts still can’t imagine what is going to happen when the truck enters a diesel and hybrid markets. The first one is almost out, while the plug-in truck is the next step in the evolution. In future, Ford is considering a fully electrified truck, which will complete the lineup and fight Tesla all-electric pickup.
Facelift of the 2019 Ford F-150 will bring new packages for exterior and interior. Also, safety will be improved. On the other hand, buyers will not suffer because of the price. The upcoming truck will keep the current level. Also, F-150 Raptor will be a performance version.
2019 Ford F-150 Diesel Specs and Release Date
We will pay more attention to a diesel engine, rather than a hybrid because it will come first. The truck is the first in the lineup to get such powertrain. It is a Power Stroke V-6 mill with excellent off-road capabilities. Also, with diesel, the company will improve the towing capacity of the 2019 Ford F-150. A 3.0-liter unit is almost certain. On the other hand, a 10-speed gearbox is an easy bet to be a pair of any displacement. Turbo-diesel Lion unit is an alternative. However, fans and experts are together in the opinion that Power Stroke is a better solution.
If you ask enthusiasts, they would be sure that 2019 Ford F-150 will also bring a Hybrid drivetrain. Unfortunately, the truth is that plug-in is more likely for 2020. However, without an official statement, it is still possible to see it during next season. Ford is investing $4.5 billion in electrifying its vehicles, and besides the truck, another legendary car, Mustang, is going to get the hybrid model. This is going to be a response to Tesla’s announcement about their intentions to build trucks. Of course, it would be an all-electric model. If anyone can compete it, that is F-150.
2019 Ford F-150 Raptor
Performance-oriented trucks are having their own market. Many buyers wish for more attractive design, more power, and torque, or off-road and towing capabilities. The Raptor version of 2019 Ford F-150 will meet these demands. It is not a fuel- or budget-friendly model, but its output of almost 500 hp will find the way into the heart of every truck fan. Massive torque will solve any off-road obstacle. Also, the Raptor has special packages of kit and accessories.
2019 Ford F-150 Facelift
Updates on the exterior will be minor. Ford could introduce few new colors for their most popular models. Other notable details are not coming with 2019 Ford F-150. Surely, by the time the truck comes out, a lot of changes of mind is possible. Interior updates include tuning of infotainment and entertaining system. Also, new navigation will be an optional feature. Finally, cameras and sensors will be of a great help. Features such lane departure and a pedestrian alert will be standard for 2019 F-150.
