On his 41st birthday, the upcoming 2019 Ford F-150 Diesel is getting a major update. Ford F-Series is the number one selling truck in the US for four decades.

2019 Ford F-150 Diesel – External Body Parts and Inner Cosmetic Changes
As with any new vehicle, a major update is nothing strange. The same is with newly 2019 F-150 Diesel. The biggest change is the front grille. Ford logo is slightly smaller and is placed at the very center of the grille. Headlights are moved more inside and some new “scoops” are added. Possibly air inlet.
Tailgate design is slightly different and the running lights are moved into upper and lower section. There is no doubt that these touches will add something new and classy, especially with new daytime running lights. The aluminum construction is new and is taken to a whole another level. In order to “cheat” the wind and make the car less heavy, fuel economy is better than ever.
Safety first, as Ford F-150 Diesel 2019 owns new-age safety system with autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. New 4G LTE-Wi-Fi hotspot can now support up to ten devices, while Sync 3 remains the same.
Infotainment system list continues with competent voice recognition and straightforward UI. On top of that, in a vehicle this big as 2019 Ford F-150 Diesel, 360-degree cameras is a “must have”. The parking system is developed, so if you lack confidence in this category, this is a good thing. Moreover, legroom is increased as well.
2019 Ford F-150 Diesel – Modification under the Hood
Such a shame we’ll have to wait until next year to try new 3.0-liter turbo-diesel V6 engine. Compared to last year, Ford lowers a displacement from 3.3 to 3.0-liters. Still, the base V6 can make up to 295 hp and 260 pound-feet of torque. Additionally, it adds direct injection for improved fuel economy.
The V6 trucks are paired with the 6-speed automatic transmission. Interestingly, this engine is one of a few that have less than 10 gears. Other engines are optional. The 2.7-liter turbocharged V6 EcoBoost is a good choice. It can make 320 hp and up to 400 lb-ft of torque. This engine is available only with a 10-speed transmission.
2019 Ford F-150 Diesel – Price and Release Date
The 2019 Ford F-150 Diesel is expected to hit the car market before the spring of 2019. The base model will cost around $30,000 and the price may go up to $60,000. As mentioned, not all the customers are the same. Price is based on trims, type of engine you choose and many different options.
The competition is huge. Nissan Titan, Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are the biggest competitors. Toyota Tundra and GMC Sierra 1500 also deserves a place on this list.
