2019 Ford F-150 Limited; aka the luxury dragster

This was too easy for Ford to do. The guys and gals at F-Series central had been staring at the screen for nearly a year, just waiting for the ok. They finally got it. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the Ford F-150 Limited Raptor-non-Raptor.

The Limited trim is the one that slots, or slotted, just below that of the mighty Raptor in the F-150’s line-up. The latter was the brute while the Limited was the posh on-road yet capable luxury truck. For 2019, beast-mode power lovers that prefer soccer practice on Saturday mornings over dune jumping will be able to get Raptor power under their Limited bonnet.

Previously, the Limited’s EcoBoost 3.5-litre V6 provided only 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. For 2019, output raises to Raptor levels which are 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. Although you might not go bogging with a Limited F-150, you can get your buttox massaged while racing sports cars on the dragstrip.
