An In-Depth Look into the 2019 Ford F-150 Performance
The 2019 Ford F-150 is a powerful workhorse suitable for virtually all tasks. The truck effortlessly hauls large loads, and no other truck in its class outperforms its ability to haul cargo. It has come to match any task thrown at it, and it is clear that it is the top truck in its class, while its additional features set it so far above the rest of the pack, there is almost no decision to be made when considering a new truck.
The Ford F-150 is made with quality in mind, and it is easy to sense that when sitting in it, or when using it for rigorous tasks. It has the same grade military-grade aluminum alloy cab and bed that would be seen in military and industrial applications. Because of this, it is the best in its class at payload and towing capability. There is scarcely anything the F-150 cannot do in this regard.
It also provides a great experience for the driver. It has Ford Co-Pilot 360, which is a technology that assists the driver in knowing the obstacles ahead of him in the road.
Beyond this, it offers Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which is a feature that makes backing up the trailer much simpler. The driver needs only to turn a knob, which rotates the trailer in the direction desired. The Backup Assist technology then responds accordingly and rotates the trailer, making the experience a lot less daunting and much easier on the driver. Ford really thought of every possible application for its truck, and little “frills” such as this knob go a long way towards soothing the driver that Ford has made the experience of owning an F-150 as user-friendly as possible.
Powertrains and Engine Options
Beyond many of these standard features, the F-150 comes with six different engine options – naturally-aspirated V6 and V8 gas power plants with twin-independent variable cam timing, a turbocharged gas EcoBoost V6, and a Power Stroke turbodiesel V6. With these options, every driver can find the engine best suited to their lifestyle and all of them pack adequate power! Whether it is the Diesel engine or the EcoBoost, the driver is going to be satisfied with the torque and power of his or her Ford F-150.
Performance Off-Road Technology
As if all this was not enough, the Ford F-150 Raptor provides the opportunity for extreme off-road adventures. The Raptor model is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that provides 450 horsepower and 510 pounds per foot of torque.
It has the suspension system to support these travels too, with a FOX Live Valve monotube shock system. It also has an electronic solenoid valve that allows for variable compression dampening and automatic adjustment to changing terrain.
The driver of an F-150 Raptor can confidently traverse poor roads (or non-roads!) in this truck without any fears of the truck losing its grip on the road — the truck is adequately prepared for the worst terrains, and this is a selling feature for many.
Power and Style
With all the benefits of the F-150, it is seemingly just icing on the cake that it has such style. The STX option include machined aluminum wheels, a black mesh grille, interior upgrades, and SYNC 3. The truck also comes with body color bumpers, privacy glass, and STX badging. It is aesthetically pleasing in every way, which again is really just a bonus given its top-notch performance in every arena. If aesthetics were graded, it would come out the best in its class as well, along with all the metrics that already put the F-150 in the elite class of trucks — at the top!
The black mesh grille insert looks great on any color of F-150, and the 20-inch machined aluminum wheels have magnetic painted pockets. The interior can also be upgraded to include sport interior accents. The STX also includes SYNC 3 with Apple CarPlay and Android Audio support. It is ready to rock as you do your work! Between the stylish cab, the audio system, and the performance, the overall package the F-150 brings is nothing but satisfaction for any driver.
This is a truck that can perform work tasks, recreational duties, and will look great while doing so. It is incomparable in so many features that one would be foolish not to consider the Ford F-150 as his or her truck for work and play.
It is built “Ford Tough” to tolerate the most abusive drivers, so for those who are inclined to look after their truck, this one may well last deep into eternity! It is built to last with high-quality parts, and the engine options offer enough flexibility that each driver should find a model that is perfect among Ford’s six choices.
A few additional features that are helpful with the F-150 are its adaptive cruise control and the trailer assist (previously mentioned). The stop-and-go technology allows the driver to set a speed and distance from the vehicle ahead of the driver, and the vehicle will automatically accelerate and brake while maintaining the preset distance. It can even resume from a stop as traffic begins to move. This feature takes away the frustrating aspects of cruise control that stop many from using it. It becomes a more natural experience well catered to a number of driving conditions.
Lastly, only because it is so incredible, it is worth mentioning the trailer assist one last time: the Pro Trailer Backup Assist makes this sometimes-tricky maneuver reduced to the easy task of just turning a knob. After using this feature, it becomes difficult to fathom how it was done without! Ford put the time into this truck to design the features most useful to drivers and those who use their trucks like trucks are intended to.
The experience of owning a Ford F-150 is superior to every other truck in its class, and it will never leave the driver in want—whether it is towing a boat, using it to carry large payloads, or just trekking off-road for fun, the F-150 is perfectly suited for all tasks.
