The new 2019 Ford F-450 is comig to the market soon. The State Fair of Texas is a favored location for pickup-truck suppliers to hawk their newest as well as biggest products. This year, Toyota flaunted its reworked 2017 Tundra, as well as two of the Detroit’s Big 3 appeared with new metal. Very hot on the heels of Chevrolet’s launching of its updated-for-2017 Silverado 2500 as well as 3500 sturdy trucks comes the updated sturdy Ford F-series line you see here.

(And you thought the fair was just for animals and also cowboys.) While not as thoroughly reworked as the latest GM trucks, the F-series Super Obligation’s optional diesel V-8 obtains power-boosting tweaks, the near-commercial-grade F-450 acquires a stronger structure, as well as the cowboy-luxury King Ranch version has been offered a moderate makeover.


Externally, the 2019 F-series Super Task vehicles– F-250, F-350, as well as F-450- look the same to their 2017 counterparts. Ford’s most-recent Super Duty cosmetic updates came for 2011, as well as was composed mostly of a chrome-tacular front-end therapy that continues on this most recent version. The big information comes under the vehicle’s skin: Ford’s internally, 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel V-8 receives a host of modifications to create even more power. How much more power? Ford isn’t stating yet, however guarantees an increase over the present Power Movement’s remarkable 400 horsepower and also 800 lb-ft of twist.

To attain its secret power gains, Ford added a larger turbocharger with a solitary compressor vane rather than the outgoing version’s dual-sided vane. This provides the exhaust gases much more useful surface area to work the compressor, allowing Ford to dial back the increase as well as ditch the aged model’s waste gate. The larger super additionally improves exhaust stopping, which can be activated by a dash button. Operating in performance with the new turbocharger are new fuel-injector ideas, a tweaked energy pump, as well as a brand-new exhaust temperature sensor that begets more-accurate control over energy shipping. The higher output is distributed to either the back or all four wheels via Ford’s own TorqShift six-speed automatic transmission, which is intensified with a new torque converter. The standard 385-hp, 6.2-liter gasoline V-8 carries over unmodified.

Although the F-250 and F-350 rigs soldier on with nary a modification, the magnificent 2019 Ford F-450 inherits a stronger framework as well as new “commercial-grade” 19.5-inch wheels. Ford likewise futzed with the driveline’s U-joints; changed the rear fallen leave springtimes, front and back anti-roll bars, and also dampers; suited a more powerful guiding gear as well as links; and also scampered on the bigger brakes from the Super Task chassis-cab designs. With the help of an F-450- specific calibration for the Power Stroke diesel, the changes up the model’s hauling capacity to an unspecified level whether pulling from the hitch or through a fifth wheel.


If you thought Ford’s rugged-luxury King Cattle ranch trim degree was named simply by combining both apparently disparate concepts of monarchies as well as flatlands on which animals defecates, get ready to have some know-how went down on you. While Ford’s layout group was rounding up cattle at the quite real King Ranch trying to find motivation, they became even more obsessed with the “Running Ws” that have adorned the ranch and eponymously called F-series for several years. Ford claims it intends to logo to “specify the brand-new Super Duty King Cattle ranch,” so the W was plastered on the wheel caps, stitched on the seatbacks, and jazzed up on the facility console. Other King Ranch adjustments consist of a darker exterior accent shade for the wheel arches, bumper, and lower-body cladding, as well as a lighter color of Mesa leather for the interior.

Although we’re let down by the King Cattle ranch’s apparent absence of integrated cow pies, its refresh– as well as the more powerful diesel– must aid maintain the Super Responsibility fresh in the face of its newer competition.
