2019 Ford F-250 OVERVIEW

The 2019 Ford F-250 kicks off the Super Duty lineup by building on the standard truck with the amenities and performance due to its name. Its toughness is evident all across its body, but the real test comes with its strong payload and trailering capabilities.

What's New for 2019

For 2019, the Super Duty returns and brings with it light changes. An available B&O Play stereo system replaces the Sony system. A new Lariat Sport Package also rolls out.

Choosing Your F-250

The F-250 along with the F-350 and F-450 comprise Ford’s Super Duty line. The F-250 seats up to six, offers three cab choices, two bed sizes, and five wheelbase lengths. Rear-wheel drive is standard, while four-wheel drive is available.

Ford supplies two engine choices with the F-250. A 6.2-liter V8 engine that makes 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque is the standard choice. Also available is a 6.7-liter turbodiesel V8 engine with 450 hp and 935 lb-ft of torque. Both engines work with a heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission.

The F-250 has a payload capacity ranging from 3,288 to 4,315 pounds. When it comes to conventional towing, the range is from 12,300 to 18,000 pounds. The EPA doesn't rate the fuel economy of the F-250.

As is typical with Ford pickup trucks, numerous packages and individual upgrades are available. We’ve listed most with each trim. Other packages not mentioned include a Heavy Service Front Suspension Package ($125), a Snow Plow Prep Package ($185), and a 5th-Wheel/Gooseneck Trailer Tow Prep Package 4x4 ($500).

XL

The standard F-250 XL with the Regular cab, the eight-foot bed and rear-wheel drive costs $34,645 (all prices include the $1,495 destination charge). Standard equipment includes the gas engine, two front tow hooks, a front stabilizer bar, an integrated trailer brake controller, and hill start assist. Ford also includes a tilt-and-telescopic steering column, vinyl seats, and air conditioning. Buyers can add $2,795 for four-wheel drive, add $9,120 to the bottom line for the turbodiesel, and pay $2,535 to upgrade to the SuperCab or $3,795 to opt for the Crew cab.

The Power Equipment Group ($915) includes manual folding and telescoping trailer tow mirrors with heated glass, a power front seat, power locks, a power tailgate lock, and remote keyless entry. An STX Appearance Package ($1,690) adds chrome embellishments, including 18-inch cast aluminum wheels. Other packages include the XL Value Package ($1,000, 4.2-inch center stack screen, a stereo system with an MP3 player, and chrome exterior touches), an FX4 Off-Road Package ($400, 3.73 electronic locking axle ratio and all-terrain tires) and a Trailer Tow Package - High Capacity ($1,130, upgraded axle and 20-inch polished aluminum wheels). This last package requires upgrading to the turbodiesel engine.

XLT

Starting at $38,860, the XLT adds Sync infotainment, cloth seats, and the Power Equipment Group. Ford also brings in floor covering and power windows and door locks. Most of the package offerings in the XL carry forward. Unique to this trim is the XLT Value Package ($1,460) that brings fog lights, power-adjustable pedals, an eight-way power driver’s seat, a reverse sensing system, and keypad entry on the driver’s side.

Lariat

With a starting price of $47,635, the XLT comes with a standard SuperCab and a six-foot, nine-inch bed. This model includes 20-inch aluminum wheels, SYNC 3 infotainment, and leather-trimmed front seats. Upgrades include a Tow Technology Package ($2,150, a surround-view camera, adaptive steering, and automatic high beams) and a BLIS Package ($540, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and trailer tow).

The Chrome Package ($1,125) includes 18-inch chrome wheels, chrome step bars, body-color door handles with a chrome insert, chrome bed tie-down hooks, chrome front tow hooks, chrome mirror caps, a chrome exhaust tip, and front and rear chrome bumpers. The Lariat Value Package ($710) adds heated and cooled front seats, a memory driver's seat, memory and power-adjustable pedals, memory trailer tow mirrors, LED box lighting, and remote start.

King Ranch

Priced from $58,405, the King Ranch begins one of three models with a standard Crew cab. This model brings in such features as unique bumpers, two-tone paint, power-folding and power-heated trailer mirrors, unique leather trim, and voice-activated navigation. The King Ranch Ultimate Package ($3,350) adds LED fog lights, LED taillights, quad LED headlights, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, trailer tow, a twin-panel moonroof, multi-contour front seats, power-deployable running boards, and a tailgate step. The twin-panel power moonroof ($1,495) is among the individual upgrades.

Platinum

Beginning at $64,830, the F-250 Platinum features power-deployable running boards, and unique multi-contour driver and front passenger leather seats. Quad LED headlights, LED fog lights, and LED taillights are also standard. Ford also includes blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The most noteworthy package here is the Platinum Ultimate Package ($3,080) that includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with brake support, a twin-panel moonroof, and an enhanced towing package.

Limited

The top-of-the-line F-250 Limited pulls out all the stops, costing $81,735. This four-wheel-drive model comes with the turbodiesel engine as standard. Inside, Ford includes unique camelback two-tone leather seats and a 180/360-degree camera.

CarsDirect Tip

Unless you’re using your truck for crew duty only, we see no reason to begin your search with the base 2019 Ford F-250 model. For everyone else, the Lariat offers many of the amenities you expect in this kind of truck. Regardless, prices can climb quickly, especially as you upgrade cabs, choose four-wheel drive, opt for the turbodiesel engine, or select a few packages.
