2019 Ford F-150 Summary
The Ford F-150 sets high standards for full-size pickups with its lightweight but high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy cab, and bed. This is the same high-grade 6000 series material used in military and industrial applications. To make this possible, a heat-treating process is used to harden the aluminum alloy. Working with aluminum alloy allows an increase in thickness to achieve strength without increasing weight.
The lighter aluminum-alloy body and bed produce a higher power-to-weight ratio resulting in best-in-class payload and towing capability. Come see this performance for yourself when you test drive the 2019 Ford F-150 at J.C. Lewis Ford Savannah, your local Savannah car dealership.
Your F-150 is built to work hard but that doesn’t mean you have to. That’s why the F-150 is designed to be easy to operate, whether you’re inside the cab or working out of the pickup bed. The fully boxed frame is made of more high-strength steel and larger cross-sections than the previous-generation frame. FOX Racing worked closely with Ford for the latest F-150 model to upgrade their suspension technology. 2019 drivers will look forward to the new damping shocks that feature Live Valve technology and can be electronically controlled. This adapts the ride based on the terrain providing a smoother ride by diminishing jolts and bumps. The truck can sense when it is airborne so you can secure the shocks and prevent damage to the undercarriage.
It's Terrain Management System offers seven selectable modes (Normal, Sport, Slippery, Tow/Haul, Deep grey-lightest/Sand, Baja, and Rock Crawl). And now, the Raptor adds new Trail Control. Ask about this technology and how it can improve the way you drive at J.C. Lewis Ford Hinesville, your Savannah car dealership.
Many Engine Configurations
The F-150 also offers six engines covering three configurations: naturally aspirated V6 and V8 gas power plants with twin-independent variable cam timing, turbocharged gas EcoBoost V6 offerings, and the Power Stroke Turbo-Diesel V6.
This engine delivers a robust 325 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque because it’s engineered with the Ford port-fuel and direct-injection (PFDI) system featuring two injectors per cylinder, dual overhead cam design with variable intake/exhaust cam timing.
3.5L EcoBoost Engine
The 3.5L EcoBoost with a 10-speed transmission boasts impressive power ratings of 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque. It is available in two power grades: 375 hp and 470 lb.-ft. or 450 hp and 510 lb.-ft.
High-Output 3.5L Ecoboost
Under the unique Raptor hood is the 24-valve, 3.5L twin-turbo HO EcoBoost with Ford port-fuel and direct-injection system plus a 10-speed automatic transmission. This engine generates a massive 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.
10-Speed Automatic Transmission
The Ford F-150 EcoBoost, V8, and diesel engines deliver their power through an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission. Compared with the 6-speed, the 10-speed delivers improved overall performance with enhanced acceleration at the low and mid ranges of the power band. Features include optimized wide-span gear spacing coupled with drag-reduction actions plus three overdrive gears. You can choose from five selectable modes: Normal, Tow-Haul, grey-lightest-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport. Test this feature out when you drive your 2019 Ford F-150 at J.C. Lewis Savannah, your local Ford dealership.
Shifting into four-wheel drive is as easy as turning a dial with the electronic shift-on-the-fly (ESOF) system. ESOF lets you choose two four-wheel-drive modes (4x4 low or high) as well as two-wheel drive. The Ford F-150 Lariat, Ford F-150 King Ranch, Ford F-150 Limited, Ford F-150 Platinum, and Ford F-150 Raptor models also include automatic 4WD mode. The FX4 Off-Road Package includes an electronic-locking rear differential, which locks the rear axle completely to gain enhanced traction for both wheels. It also includes Hill Descent Control, off-road-tuned shock absorbers, skid plates, and an “FX4 Off-Road” decal. Plus, the available 360-degree camera with split-view display is helpful when you’re maneuvering in tight spaces and on off-road trails.
