2019 Ford F150 online configurator went public recently, and it reveals a price hike of at least $450 for the base XL model. However, Ford Raptor and F150 Limited prices go up by $2,180 and $5,775 with additional or upgraded standard equipment. Here is how it breaks down.
The 2019 F150 still offers mind-boggling amount of choice that includes seven distinct trim levels, six powertrains, three cab configurations, and three bed lengths (among a plethora of optional equipment).
The engine options include: 3.3L V6, 2.7L twin-turbo V6, 5.0L V8, 3.5L twin-turbo V6, 3.0L turbo-diesel V6, and 3.5L twin-turbo H.O. V6.
The 2019 model year sees a price hike when compared to the 2018 truck lineup. The F150 remains largely unchanged for 2019, although the Raptor and the Limited get significant upgrades that also come with substantial price increases.
Here is precisely how the 2019 and 2018 F150 base trim level prices compare.
- XL: goes up by $450
- XLT: goes up by $860
- Lariat: goes up by $685
- King Ranch: goes up by $460
- Raptor Ext & Crew: go up by $2,180
- Platinum: goes up by $435
- Limited: goes up by $5,775
2019 Ford Raptor
The 2019 Raptor gets a new Trail Control off-road cruise control system that can operate the brake and the accelerator at speeds between 1-20 MPH. It also gets new FOX Live valve shocks that react to the moving truck and the terrain in real time. The starting price is bumped up by $2,180.
When fully loaded with nearly everything, the 2019 Raptor MSRP crosses the $75,000 mark. The current F-150 Raptor trucks do not hang around dealership lots for very long. The 2019 model should continue the sales success.
2019 Ford F150 Limited
The top F150 luxury model is still the Limited. This trim level gets a few updates, but the big deal is the standard high-output 3.5L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6. This is basically the Raptor motor, and it is rated at 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. It is the most powerful half-ton truck out there, but the price goes up by $5,775.
Add 4×4 and all the options to the Limited F150 and you can see a price that reaches over $74,000.
