The new 2019 Ford F-150 offers current F-150 fans a new 3.0-liter diesel-powered V6, a high performance 3.5-liter V6 option, standard electronic features like forward collision warning and emergency braking, and a 36-gallon fuel tank for those long hauls.
But that’s not all. Past fans will find in the 2019 Ford F-150 the same popular features, options, engines and trim packages that have made the Ford F-150 one of America’s most popular trucks in the full-size pickup truck category. Ford service is known to be the absolute best, as this vehicle remains versatile as ever and is good for family life as well as a no-compromise work site.
Cab Styles, Bed Lengths and Trim Levels
The 2019 F-150 has features galore and comes in no less than 3 cab styles. The 3 cab styles are Regular, SuperCab extended, and SuperCrew crew cab. The bed lengths available depend on the chosen cab style.
The Regular and SuperCab styles are available with a 6-foot-6-inches standard bed or a long bed that measures an even 8 feet. The SuperCrew cab is available with the standard 6-foot-6-inches bed or a short bed that measures 5-foot-6-inches. Adding to these choices are the trim levels. There are 6 main trim levels: the base XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited.
The base XL isn’t so base in that its standard features include a cloth-upholstered 40/20/40-split front bench, pre-wired trailer connections, vinyl flooring, 4-speaker sound system, automatic headlights, automatic high beams, a 4.2-inch display screen, a rearview camera, trailer sway control, 17-inch wheels, forward collision warning with automatic braking, a manual tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, and air conditioning.
SuperCab and SuperCrew models have 60/40-split folding rear seats with 2 additional speakers. The 101A Package adds Ford’s MyKey vehicle controls, cruise control, smartphone app integration, a larger driver information screen, Bluetooth, voice controls, a CD player, a USB port, power windows, power mirrors, power locks, and remote locking/unlocking.
The XLT adds the features from the 101A package along with alloy wheels, carpeting, chrome bumpers, rear privacy glass, chrome exterior trim, fog lights, a keypad entry system, FordPass Wi-Fi, an additional USB port, lumbar seat adjustments, additional interior storage bins/pockets, and an 8-inch touchscreen with Sync 3, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
A luxury package (i.e., package Luxury 302A) can be added that includes remote ignition, power-adjustable seats, and heated front seats. It doesn’t end there, as other options such as a panoramic sunroof, box side steps, a navigation system, and more automatic safety features can be added as standalone features.
The Ford F-150 Lariat ups the ante with many of the XLT’s Luxury 302A features included as standard. The Lariat also includes ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, ambient lighting, driver-seat memory settings, dual-zone automatic climate control, 18-inch wheels, a trailer hitch, keyless entry, keyless ignition, and power-adjustable pedals.
The Lariat offers 2 optional packages: the midrange 501A and luxury 502A packages. These add such amenities as rear parking sensors, front-facing spotlights, upgraded mirrors, remote tailgate release, LED headlights, an 11-speaker stereo with HD radio, lane departure warning, power-deployable running boards, automatic wipers, a heated steering wheel, a surround-view camera system, an automated parallel parking system, and adaptive cruise control.
The Ford F-150 King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited add even more features. The King Ranch is only available with the SuperCrew cab and only the 5.0-liter V8 engine. It builds on the Luxury 502A package with an added Western motif on both the interior and exterior.
The Platinum trim sticks with the styling but adds 20-inch wheels, added wood trim, aluminum interior trim, and power-deployable running boards.
At the top of the top, the F-150 Limited comes with the high-output version of the turbocharged 3.5-liter engine, 22-inch wheels, front leather upholstery, and an extended-range 36-gallon fuel tank.
