Despite the fact that the current generation is present for only a few years, the company already prepares some updates for 2019 Ford Super Duty model. Introduced in 2016, the current generation of these trucks came with significant improvements in various aspects. Of course, the most notable is the new architecture that utilizes plenty of lightweight materials. Changes in other aspects were significant as well. However, the company wants to keep these models competitive, so there are few novelties to come for the next year. This seems pretty logical, considering that new HD models from Chevy and Ram are about to come soon. Expect few visual updates, as well as a new transmission in the offer. Other than that, the 2019 Super Duty should continue in the pretty much same way.
What’s new for the 2019 Ford Super Duty?
Most likely, the biggest novelty for this update will be a new transmission. It looks like the company will introduce a new 10-speed automatic transmission for the next year. However, it will probably be offered as optional and reserved for higher trims, while the current 6-speed gearbox will be a part of standard equipment. Also, we expect to see several visual updates, mainly at the front end. We should see some tweaks to the grille and front fascia, but few more areas could also come with novelties.
2019 Ford Super Duty Design
As we’ve already mentioned, the 2019 Ford Super Duty is about to come with few updates. However, the overall design is about to remain unchanged. All versions will continue with same base characteristics, which also includes thing like body styles, cargo box dimensions etc. Same goes for the interior design, which will keep a familiar layout, characterized by a surprisingly high level of comfort, considering the main purpose.
Which trim levels will be in the offer for 2019 Ford Super Duty?
In this aspect, the 2019 Ford Super Duty should continue in the same way. Expect to see the same organization of equipment groups, though each trim could receive few novelties. There are six trim levels offered in total – XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited.
If you’re looking for a classic workhorse, the XL trim would be a perfect choice for you. It doesn’t offer too many equipment. Some of the notable standard features are air-conditioning, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a driver information display, and a four-speaker audio system.
The XLT is also primarily a working machine. Still, there are few upgrades compared to the base XL model. It adds alloy wheels, power side mirrors, 4.2-inch display, a USB port, satellite radio, cruise control etc.
One of the most popular trim levels so far has been the Lariat. It is a well-balanced model that offers plenty of value for the money. Some of the highlights are things like dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, power-adjustable pedals, rear parking sensors, 8-inch touchscreen, 10-speaker audio system.
The King Ranch adds more equipment, but also comes with plenty of unique styling details. Visual appearance is definitely the strongest point of this version.
On the other side, the Platinum trim is all about convenience, so you can count on things like 20-inch wheels, LED lights, automatic vipers etc.
Finally, many buyers would go for the 2019 Ford Super Duty Limited. With this one, you can count on all from above, as well as on things like a panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, surround-view camera etc.
2019 Ford Super Duty Engines
Under the good, things will remain the same. For those who still prefer 2019 Ford Super Duty gas engine, there is a familiar 6.2-liter V8 unit, which is good for about 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. Still, these trucks are primarily working machines, so most drivers would prefer 2019 Ford Super Duty diesel model. This one comes with a monstrous 6.7-liter V8 engine that is good for about 450 horsepower and 935 pound-feet of torque.
