2019 Ford F-150 Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide

Ford F-150 is perhaps the most popular vehicle in the States right now, and is one of the few vehicles to survive Ford 's production shut down. Ford has decided to be a mobility company ' which in simpler terms would mean that the firm will focus on other vehicles besides passenger cars. With the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Taurus, etc., going out of production, the F-series trucks will make up the majority of Ford 's lineup in the US. Thankfully, the 2019 F-150 is up to the task of filling in all the gaps left in the company 's arsenal.

Overall Rating


Ford F-150 is one of the best trucks available in the market currently. The Regular Cab has plenty of variants too, like the three engine options, two V6s and a V8, two bed size options, a 6-and-a-half-feet standard box and an 8-feet Long Box. Apart from the above, you also get different trims on each variant, which means you have an option for every pocket. You get a lot of space and comfort along with significant road presence as well.

The XLT trim is the one you should look out for if you want any sort of passenger comfort in your truck. The XL variant focuses more on the work aspects of the truck rather than luxury.

2019 Ford F-150 Engine

7.0/10

The F-150 offers a pair of twin-turbo V-6 engines in the quest for V-8 power with better-than-V-8 fuel economy  -Car and Driver

Engine and Transmission

The default engine on the Ford F-150 is the rather modest 3.3-liter V6 motor, capable of producing 290 horsepower, and more importantly, 265 pound-feet of torque. All this grunt is harnessed via an electronic 6-Speed Transmission with Tow/Haul and Sport Modes for easier driving. The engine pulls neatly from a standstill in a very calm fashion but struggles to get to highway speeds.

The V8 is much more powerful, rated at 395 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The smallest engine on the 2019 F-150 is the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, which is, rather surprisingly, more powerful than the 3.3 V6, producing 325 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. These optional engines get a 10-speed auto, with tow/haul mode, snow/wet mode, EcoSelect mode, and a Sport mode as well.

Acceleration

When it comes to rapid acceleration, trucks don't fare as well as smaller, nimbler cars. Even with the V8, you won't see the needle rise too fast in the speedo. Still, the Ford isn't a slouch either. Even in its least powerful avatar, the F-150 does a 0 to 60 mph run in 7 seconds, which is quite fine for a vehicle of these dimensions.

The fastest truck in the segment is the Chevy Silverado 1500 which completes the 0-60 mph run in 5.3 seconds. Second in line is the Toyota Tundra which completes the same run in 6.5 seconds.

Ride and Handling

The 2019 Ford F-150 is an extremely potent handler, much better than bulk should allow. Sure, there is some body roll and ride-quality does turn a little bouncy at speed, but this truck has everything under control. The F-150 can carry plenty of cornering speed into a corner and still come out alive on the other side. Even when compared to the rivals, the Ford comes out on top as the best handling truck in its segment.

Braking

Just like everything else on the F-150, the brakes are quite big as well. The front wheels sport a set of 13.8-inch rotors, and the rear has a pair of 13.7-inch rotors. The pedal feel is fine, neither too spongy nor too hard, with just the right length of travel.

The Ford F-150 features the best in class stopping distance of 119 feet. The other trucks aren't far behind, although the figures aren't available. Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan are especially heavy trucks, whiPayload Capacitych does hurt their braking performance a little.

Towing Capacity

The F-150 has a towing of capacity of 2 and a half tons, which is good enough for all non-commercial activities, and a few commercial ones as well. You have the option of either a trailer hitch or a trailer tow, so choose accordingly.

In comparison with rivals, Nissan Titan emerges victorious with its class leading payload capacity on the strong engine. Ford has a smaller towing capacity of 5,000 pounds on the smaller engine, and a staggering 9,100 pounds on the EcoBoost V6 and the V8.

Payload Capacity

The Ford F-150 has an impressive payload capacity of 1990 pounds, which means you can throw almost a ton's worth of cargo in the back and go about your work.

2019 Ford F-150 Fuel Economy

4.0/10

This large truck sure does burn a lot of oil. The fuel economy numbers on the Ford-150 aren't too good, but still fine for the size. The car returns a gas mileage of 25 mpg combined which is actually much better than the rivals in the same segment.

The F-150 Ford leads the way in fuel efficiency, owing to its lovely engine, which is smaller than others. Of course, efficiency figures go down if the engine size goes up.

2019 Ford F-150 Interior

8.5/10

There's a lot to like about the F-150. All seats provide both appropriate support and all-day comfort, and the climate control system is a model of effectiveness. Plus the cabin environment is quiet and calm.  -Edmunds

Seating and Comfort

The F-150 has a lot of space on the inside, courtesy its large dimensions. Two people have much more space than they would ever need, while three might be just a slight squeeze. The seats are extremely comfortable, and not only does the Ford offer a lot of space, but a lot of equipment as well. You can have things like Pre-Collision Assist, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Tire Pressure Monitoring System as standard.

There are plenty of cubby holes around as well, and the doors have bottle holding spaces too. Overall, the cabin is lovely to be in. You also get interior lighting, and lighting for the bed behind as well, which are some neat practical touches.

In comparison with rivals, the Chevy Silverado is the top spot with the most amount of legroom. 2nd in line is the F-150 with a legroom of 43.9 inches.

Infotainment

As standard, the F-150 gets a 4.2-inch LCD display in the center console, and a 2.3-inch screen in between the dials in the driver's console as well.

  • AM/FM Stereo with seek/scan
  • Sirius XM Satellite Radio (6-month trial)
  • 4-speaker system
  • Auxiliary Input Jack
  • 12V front power-point

While the onboard Wi-Fi system has been replaced, the Infotainment system hasn't. You'll find the Sync system still on duty in this vehicle, but only if you tick the box. If you wish for an update, you can have Sync 3 system, which is much better. The touch response time would have certainly been better but the overall system is really good to use.

2019 Ford F-150 Exterior

7.0/10

The first step to picking out your [F-150] truck is deciding which cab style and bed length you want. Since not every trim is available with every cab/bed combination, your choice of trims is whittled down, making life a little easier for you as a buyer.  -Cars.usnews

Dimensions and Weight

This full-size truck has had the same body for a few years now, which means the dimensions have remained identical for quite a few years. The Standard Box (6 and a half feet) variant is just 209 inches long, while the Long Box (8 feet) variant is a substantially longer at 227 inches.

Weight may have altered a bit though, but not enough to be noticeable under practical situations, mainly due to the updated engines and transmission. Ford F-150 weighs in at 4069 pounds for the lightest model (LX Standard box with 3.3 V6).

Design and styling

The Ford F-series has always been a looker, even back in the 50s. Fast forward a few decades, and we have ourselves the modern iteration of this vehicle, in its glorious thirteenth generation. It's a big, bulky looking pick-up with a massive front grille, two shapely dual headlights on each side of the face. The vehicle gets 17-inch steel wheels as standard, with 17-inch alloys as an option. You also get LED DRLs and Chrome front grille on the equipment list by default.

2019 Ford F-150 Competition

Ford F-150 vs Nissan Titan

The Nissan Titan is a full-sized heavy-duty truck from the oriental car makers. The car certainly falls shorts on looks especially when compared to the rivals. However, the car features tried and tested rugged V8 engines which sound amazing. Reliability isn't really an issue with Nissan now, although service support is. Overall, the Nissan Titan is a capable vehicle, but it still falls short of the Ford F-150 as a complete package.

Ford F-150 vs Chevrolet Silverado

The Chevy Silverado is one of the more traditional looking trucks amongst the rivals. The vehicle features a rock solid and sturdy built. The cabin is nice to look at and even comfortable for the passengers, but, the F-150's cabin is certainly the more modern one, both inside and outside. The Silverado is a more traditional vehicle, and it looks a little dated now.

Ford F-150 vs Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra is one most reliable truck out there in the market. The interior quality on the truck is far superior than a lot of trucks in the segment. Even when it comes to the looks department. The Toyota looks fairly modern and pleasing to the eye from all the angles. The Tundra though, still certainly falls short of the pedigree of the Ford F-150 in terms every possible angle there is.

2019 Ford F-150 Final Verdict

The 2019 Ford F-150 is one of the top trucks currently on sale on American soil, and is home-bred too. It's an extremely capable truck, the best in the class actually, owing to its long list of features, a spacious and comfortable cabin, mighty engines, and last but not least, capturing looks. If you want a comfortable yet rugged vehicle for your needs, the F-150 is a great choice.
