2019 Ford F-150 Review
There’s a reason why the Ford F-Series is the bestselling line of pickup trucks in the world. This is the manufacturer that set the standard for pickup trucks, whose slogan, “Built Ford Tough,” is as accurate as they come. In fact, the very first pickup truck to become a popular choice across the nation was the Ford Model T pickup. While there had been other pickup truck attempts before that, Ford set the standard and has maintained it for decades.
This legacy carries through to the current model F-150, the leader in light-duty pickup trucks. With fans all over the State College, Lewistown, and Bellefonte region, it’s always an exciting time when a new model arrives on the scene. Let’s find out what the 2019 Ford F-150 has to offer in terms of rugged construction, performance, utility, and more in this review, and learn where you can check one out for yourself.
The Ford F-150
This year’s F-150 model hits showrooms with a number of exciting upgrades. There are two new engines: A 3.0-liter diesel V6 and a high-horsepower version of the 3.5-liter V6 engine with a hefty 36-gallon fuel tank. You also get standard upgraded safety features, including frontal crash warning and automatic emergency braking. All this is taking a class-leading pickup to the next level.
There is a dizzying array of engines available on the new F-150. It starts with a 3.3-liter V6 model. This gives you 290 horsepower with 265 lb-ft of torque.
