The super-capable truck is about to come without more important changes. Considering that the current version is on the market for just a couple of years, this seems natural, especially for the segment where quick changes aren’t the most important way to remain fresh. This truck focuses primarily on working capabilities, but balances with comfort pretty well, so you can count on lots of conveniences as well. The 2019 Ford F-450 Super Duty definitely won’t feature too many changes. We are about to see a familiar layout, though additions like new colors and more standard equipment seem very likely.
2019 Ford F-450 Design
The will continue to be one of the most capable trucks you can find around. Though it doesn’t look much better than its F-350 sibling, things in practice are a little bit different. This one is heavier, so don’t be confused when you see that some versions even feature lower towing capacity. On the other side, one of the biggest advantages is the wider front and rear track. Almost five inches up front and more than a foot in the rear is definitely enough to provide much more stable work, not to mention significantly easier maneuvering. From the aesthetical side, there aren’t many differences between Super Duty models, so this truck looks kinda familiar. Visual updates are expected for the 2020 model year.
Is the F-450 a well-equipped truck?
Well, it depends on the trim level you choose, though even the most basic models come with a fair amount of standard equipment. The trim level organization if pretty familiar for Ford’s trucks. There are six trim levels in the offer – XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited. Keep in mind that the 2019 Ford F-450 will be available in a Crew Cab configuration only.
The base XL is a pretty straightforward, work-oriented truck. It comes with things like cloth upholstery, rearview camera, 6-speaker audio system and similar things. The XLT is a bit of an upgrade. You can count on things like 4.2-inch display, USB, CD player, satellite radio etc.
A well-balanced Lariat is probably the most popular version of this truck. You can count on a lot of upgrades in terms of convenience. Some of the highlights are 8-inch touchscreen, 10-speaker audio system, leather upholstery, power-adjustable seats etc.
On the other side, the King Ranch is mostly about visual upgrades. Count on lots of unique details, but also on things like heated and ventilated front seats, driver-seat memory settings, navigation etc.
The 2019 Ford F-450 Platinum adds complete exterior LED lighting, as well as things like seat massagers, wood- and leather-trimmed steering wheel, blind spot monitoring etc.
Finally, we will see a top range 2019 Ford F-450 Limited, which includes all above, and also add things like surround-view and trailer-towing camera system, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, a panoramic sunroof and many more things.
