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

Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the best off-road vehicles you can take on-road. You could take the stock vehicle to Baja, and the vehicle wouldn’t complain, but rather it would be in its element there. You don’t get the large and powerful V8 anymore, but it wouldn’t be missed as the new 2019 Ford Raptor is now powered by a bonkers 450 HP EcoBoost V6. So, lack of power is not a concern, but you do get strong competition from Toyota, Chevrolet, and Dodge.

Ford’s decision to be a ‘mobility company’ was followed by the announcement of the end of production for many of its cars. Most of the passenger cars, like the Fiesta, Focus, Fusion, Taurus, etc., are in their last generations and might phase out of the market as soon as next year. While it does seem like the fun to drive cars are going to leave a hole in the enthusiasts’ hearts, Ford still has a few worthy cars in its arsenal.

Expert Review


CARHP Editorial August 16, 2019


Ford F-150 is one of the most popular trucks available in the market currently, and its off-road focused cousin simply ups the fun factor. The suspension parts have been upgraded and a new sub-family name shines on the tail-end: Raptor. Apart from this, you also get two variants of the Raptor; a SuperCab version, which is 2-door 6-seater, and a SuperCrew, 4-door 6-seater with a little more room for the rear passengers. Off-roading isn’t the only area where this truck excels, and you get a lot of road presence with this vehicle and plenty of comforts as well.

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Features

The F-150 has two different variations you can have; SuperCab and SuperCrew. Here, we shall only talk about the SuperCrew version.

We Recommend

The SuperCrew is great fun but seating for five people isn’t as good as the SuperCab variant due to the slightly added weight. Still, it is extremely fun yet practical. Highly recommended!

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Engine

Ford's pickup is pretty much a street-legal Trophy Truck. Its astonishing suspension allows composed cruising on the road as well as amazing control when you're barreling across the Mojave Desert or soaring over state-park sand dunes.  -CarandDriver

Engine and Transmission

The Raptor is no longer available as a V8, which was replaced in favor of a cleaner, more efficient V6 engine. The engine on the Ford F-150 is the rather modest-in-size 3.5-liter V6 motor. There is nothing modest about the power though, which is 450 HP and more importantly, 510 pound-feet of torque.

All that grunt is harnessed via an electronic 10-Speed Transmission with Tow/Haul mode, Snow/Wet mode, EcoSelect mode, and a Sport mode as well. There isn't any discernible turbo lag, and you have bundles of torque ready to pull you out of any situation.

The lack of V8 may put off the purists, but think of it this way, Raptors evolved to become more efficient predators, and so did the Raptor.

Acceleration

When it comes to rapid acceleration, trucks don't fare as well as smaller, nimbler cars. Even with the gigantic power figure, you won't see the needle rise too fast in the speedo. The Ford isn't a slouch under any circumstance, but it isn't quick or nimble 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 exact figures for raptor aren't available though, so watch this space for an update!

Ride and Handling

The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor is essentially just a simple F-150 on stilts. As such, it isn't such a great handler. On-road manners are compromised, and there is a lot of body roll. Apply the brakes and the car bows down to your request, literally. Still, this truck has everything under control at all times, even when quickly switching lanes.

Off-roading Ability

The Raptor does what an actual raptor does; prowl around the wilderness and run down its prey. Doesn't matter if you are on snow or sand, if you have a dune ahead or a drop, if you're climbing mountains or crossing river beds. It gets adaptive dampers that change their settings on the fly, responding to the change in terrain. Hard-core off-roaders will also appreciate the Trail control, which essentially does the same job a governor did in the off-roaders of yore.

Braking

The Raptor gets great brakes as well. The car gets ventilated discs with brake assist and ABS on all wheels. The pedal feel is fine, neither too spongy nor too hard, with just the right length of travel.

Towing Capacity

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Fuel Economy

This large truck sure does burn a lot of oil. Still, if you factor in the massive power this engine produces, and the specialization in drivability that it offers, the fuel economy numbers aren't bad at all. The F-150 Raptor does 15 miles to a single gallon in the city, and 21 on the highway, which translates to a combined gas mileage of 18 MPG.

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Interior

One key change for 2019 that helps elevate the Raptor's interior? A new set of Recaro sport seats. They're a considerable improvement over the chairs in last year's model, and they do a yeoman's job of keeping driver and passenger in place when the going gets rough. -CNET Road Show

Seating and Comfort

The F-150 has a lot of space on the inside, courtesy of its large dimensions. Two people in the front have much more space than they would ever need, and three people in the back can sit comfortably. The rear doors open conventionally, which eases ingress too. 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.

You get extremely supportive Recaro seats as standard, which hold you in place when the going gets tough. 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.

You have Ford's Sync 3 system working the infotainment, which is quite a good system. The touch response time would have certainly been better but the overall system is really good to use.

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. Weight may have altered a bit though, but not enough to be noticeable under practical situations, mainly due to the updated engines and transmission. Thankfully though, it doesn't affect the ability of this truck to perform massive jumps.

With a curb weight of just a little over 2 tons, the F150 truck is lighter than its rivals. The Toyota Tundra is the heaviest truck here, but it too has undeniable off-roading ability.

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. The Raptor is a special vehicle in the lineup, and Ford made sure you know it. It's a big, bulky looking vehicle with a massive "Ford" on the front grille. There are two shapely dual headlights on each side of the face, just like the rest of the F-150 series. You get 17-inch wheels as well, either machined or forged.

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Safety

The Ford F-150 is one of the hot-selling vehicles for the manufacture and Ford has ensured that the sales are not let down by substandard safety measures. The truck has been well equipped with a host of safety features:

  • Dual-stage Front Airbags for driver and right-front passenger- including safety belt pretensioners, safety belt energy-management retractors, safety belt usage sensors, driver's seat position sensor, crash severity sensor, restraint control module and Front-Passenger Sensing System
  • Airbags - Safety Canopy System with side-curtain airbags and rollover sensor AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) and Curve Control
  • Alert chimes for headlamps-on, key-in-ignition, and front safety belts
  • Belt-Minder front safety belt reminder
  • Brake/shift interlock
  • Fuel pump inertia shutoff
  • Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring System (excludes spare)
  • LATCH-Lower Anchors and Tether Anchors for Children Safety belts - 3-point in front (all models) and rear (Super Cab and Super Crew) SecuriLock Passive Anti-Theft System Side-intrusion door beams (front all models; front and rear on SuperCrew)
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System
  • Trailer sway control

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Competition

Ford F-150 Raptor vs Dodge Ram 1500 Rebel

The competition is fierce between these two trucks, with both offerings being the performance versions of the top most popular trucks in the US. Both have superb off-road ability, loads of practicality, and tons of cargo carrying ability. The 2019 Ram 1500 has better interiors and its exteriors are a little better looking as well, with a more modern touch.

The Ford, however, has a lot more power and can take a lot more beating as well. The 450 HP EcoBoost is a conversation starter and a debate winner, one of the best motors in the world, offering massive power and the good economy as well, which is simply a winner.

Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado ZL1

The Chevy Silverado is an extremely edgy looking vehicle, even bordering into try-hard-territory. If you can digest the looks though, there is much to be had here. While the ZL1 is just a package that adds off-roading bits to a regular Silverado, it's more than enough for casual trailblazers, and you could save a couple of grand on the price as compared to the Raptor.

If you want better off-roading ability though, there is no substitute to the Ford. The Raptor is certainly the more modern vehicle both inside and outside, and the list of included features will have you shelling out the extra cash in no time.

Ford F-150 vs Toyota Tundra TRD Pro

Toyota's famed TRD (Toyota Racing Development) division borrowed a Tundra Pickup and tasked the engineers with a serious mission; build a no-nonsense off-roading truck. Thus, you have the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, a truck so capable, it could be driven on literally any terrain on the face of this planet.

The problem? The Tundra falls short of the pedigree of that the Ford F-150 Raptor enjoys, at least in the States. Also, Toyota's maintenance might cost you a little more than the Ford's, and more so with the replacement parts. in terms of every possible angle, there is.

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Final Verdict

The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the best factory setup specialized vehicles on offer in the market. Its abilities are hard to match, and so is the comfort on offer. The asking price isn't too high, which makes it an even better product. The lack of a V8 may throw a few into a fit of frenzy, but with 450 horses unleashed, those people will be left far behind, visible only as a mere speck in your rear-view mirror.
