When it comes to Ford brand, we all know that it has a long tradition of being the best-selling in the American market, especially with its F-series of trucks. The 2019 Ford F-450 model is one of those models that will soon be released and hit the 2019 market. It seems that this series will even be a limited one, so we will try to discover why the new F-450 is so special.
According to the information we have got, the 2019 Ford F-450 has been caught being tested recently. The first thing that we have noticed about the 2019 F-450 based on the photos of a camouflaged prototype is its large dimensions. The truck will be very tall, in fact one of the largest F-series members. Due to its big proportions you can expect a more spacious cabin inside. Although being known as a work-oriented truck, the new F-450 will acquire some more luxurious and refined features. The front part of the truck will probably undergo most of redesign. The lowered front fascia wears a distinctive two-bar grille and a new set of LED headlights with quad-beam LED lamps. The bumper and the air vents have also been reworked. In fact, most of these features could easily be compared to those found on the smaller F-150 model, which possibly has served as an inspiration to some extent. The new F-450 is also expected to improve its towing capability, accessibility and maneuvering.
We have already mentioned large dimensions of the 2019 Ford F-450, so inside this truck you will find a spacious cabin. There will be plenty of room, but the fans have been also looking forward to more modern and luxurious details. It seems that Ford will use high-quality materials such as leather and natural wood, at least in higher trims. The seats will be covered in two-tone leather and offer options such as heating, cooling and massage. The driver will also get a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a large touch-screen with the latest infotainment system and features such as navigation, premium audio system, USB ports, Android Auto, Apple Car Play and many more. Safety systems and driver assist features such as active cruise control, lane-keeping assist and forward collision warning will be included as well.
The 2019 Ford F-450 is expected to come with a powerful 6.7-liter Power Stroke turbo-diesel V8 under its hood. Such an engine could be able to deliver at least 440 horsepower and 925 pound-feet of torque as it has been the case with the current model. The engine of the new F-450 will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, but a rumor has it that Ford might introduce its new ten-speed automatic here.
