Changes for the 2019 F-150 Model Year

The 2019 Ford F-150 once again makes a great thing even better by upgrading standard engines on certain trims, adding new performance touches (such as new shocks for the Raptor), and new driver assistance features like forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian detection.

There’s also a new 3.0-liter diesel-powered V6, and a 36-gallon fuel tank has been standardized on the Limited and Raptor trims.

One of the new features that particularly excites us is the Trail Control feature on the Raptor. This is basically cruise control for off-roading purposes. It will automatically adjust itself to terrain, providing the ideal amount of power to each wheel individually, keeping the vehicle moving at a steady, controlled speed so that you can focus on steering.
