What’s New for the 2019 Ford F-350?

In 2019, modern pickup trucks have more capabilities than ever. Nevertheless, some jobs and tasks require extra.

Not only that but consumers demand that today’s modern pickup trucks feel and handle as a luxury vehicle. This is where the 2019 Ford F-350 steps up to the challenge.

The initial thing you will notice when you first sit in it is how cozy and comfortable the cab is. You will love the abundant space provided for driver and passenger alike.

The cab has supportive seats and lots of creature comfort-oriented trim-level upgrades. Even after you weigh it down with a full trailer, load the back full of gear, and fill all the cab seats with passengers, you still have a truck that pampers everyone in it.

In addition to that, there is an added peace of mind with features such as a rearview camera that you can mount on the back of a trailer. It allows you to see where you are backing up to via the infotainment screen. There is no more stress when backing that 14-foot trailer into its place.

Then there is the blind-spot monitoring program that can be adjusted depending on the length of the trailer you’re hauling. Keeping the truck on the road is easier as well thanks to lane-keeping-assist.

It offers an added boost in its already massive tow rating, fantastic payload capacity, as well as all the high-tech bells and whistles you require as a modern heavy-duty truck owner.

Some of the most significant upgrades are under the hood. The 2019 Ford F-350 offers two types of engines, depending on the hauling capability you require and other preferences you might want.

2019 Ford F-350 Horsepower

First, you have the standard 6.2-Liter V8. Then you have the turbocharged 6.7-Liter V8 diesel. Both of these superb engines offer more than enough power for most heavy-duty pickup truck lovers.

But this in and of itself is no surprise coming from Ford. The big surprise lies in the 2019 Ford F-350 multiple-driver assist feature. In that, one can see how modern the F-350 is compared to the competitors.

The 2019 Ford F-350’s standard 6.2-Liter gasoline V8 provides 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. The turbocharged 6.7-Liter V8 diesel will impress you with 450 horsepower and a whopping 935 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are mated to a smooth six-speed automatic transmission.

Rear-wheel drive comes standard on models like the XL, which is right above fleet quality. But if you are going off-road or live in an area that gets a lot of snow, you can opt for a four-wheel drive on most models.
