    In 2019 you will be able to get the High Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 in the ultra luxurious F-150 Limited edition!


    That's the Raptor's engine for those that aren't up to date on these things....a 6 banger, turning out 450 horses...



    There are really four significantly different power-parts a Raptor engine gets that a regular F-150 doesn’t:

    - New pistons, which allow for higher compression.

    - The compressor wheel on the turbo, which allows for a peak boost of 18 psi.

    - The exhaust, which is a true dual system on the Raptor with a stainless manifold instead of cast-iron.

    - And cooling, which gets an extra cooling radiator right up front in the engine bay with dedicated fans that, "yes, are submersible in mud."

    So if you wanted all that paired with less off-roadiness but more luxury, the 2019 F-150 Limited is your jam.

    And yes, this extra energy does eek the F-150 up to “most powerful regular half-ton pickup truck” status for the time being, with its 450 HP and 510 lb-ft of torque trumping the Chevy Silverado’s 6.2-liter V8 (420 HP, 460 lb-ft) and Ram 1500's 5.7-liter Hemi (395 HP, 410 lb-ft.)





    Ford is King of the Hill once again......

    It is and it is designed that way so you can use the truck on water. You really need to buy one when they come out and try it.

    This^^^

    The trend now is to go bigger for some crazy reason. You can't buy a new- full size, single cab, short wheel base, half ton pickup truck. They don't make them like that anymore.

    Ford will sell you a regular cab 6 1/2 ' bed 4X2 or 4X4 with a 5.0, but not a 3.5 turbo.
    Problem is, not many would be sold that way so dealer do not stock them.
    And profit margin is lower...

    Dodge still has them on the lot - saw some a couple weeks ago. A regular cab, 6' or 8' bed 1500 with a Hemi is a nice truck. I used to have one and the guy I sold it to enjoyed a quarter million miles problem free.

    Of course, since Fiat bought 'em... :noidea::noidea:

    Not going to lie, that's pretty damn impressive for a gasser.

    That being said, if they had stuck a diesel in there they'd have gotten twice the torque. :rockon:
