2019 Ford F-150 vs 2018 Ford F-150
With each iteration, the F-series gets more menacing as Ford stacks the pickup with more power, more tech and more options. Despite getting a mid-cycle refresh last year, the F-150 continues to evolve with a list of refinements as we carry through 2019. See how Ford has changed things up for the pickup this time in this comparison of the 2019 Ford F-150 and its predecessor, the 2018 Ford F-150.
This year in the F-150 history book, Ford gears in on the Raptor and Limited trims with a handful of feature enhancements. A new 3.0L Power Stroke V6 also enters the mix and is available on XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum models. Keep scrolling to learn more!

What’s New in the 2019 Ford F-150?
New 3.0L Power Stroke V6 Turbodiesel
The powertrain selection gets bumped from five engines to six with the addition of the 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V6. The new V6 cranks out 250 horsepower, plus a best-in-class diesel torque rating of 440 lb-ft. It matches up with the 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift capability, putting that low-end engine torque to good use.
Ford tops it all off with best-in-class ratings for max payload at 1,980 lbs. and max towing at 11,300 lbs. And though fuel efficiency often takes a back seat when we’re talking pickups, it’s worth mentioning the new Power Stroke earns a best-in-class EPA-estimated rating of 30 mpg highway. That’s one heck of a report card if you ask us.
Limited and Raptor Trim Updates
Ford has a way of taking a good thing and making it even better. The F-150 Raptor gets a new set of Fox Internal Bypass off-road shocks along with a Trail Control system, a low-speed off-road cruise control. The system automatically adjusts to the terrain, providing the ideal amount of power to each wheel so you can focus on steering.
The F-150 Limited then inherits the Raptor’s 450-horsepower V6, replacing the 375-horsepower V6 on the 2018 model. A 36-gallon fuel tank has been standardized on the Limited and Raptor trims, leaving more road to tread between fill-ups.
