The Ford F-150 Raptor is the go-anywhere, do-anything pickup that's powered by a mighty 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. As the automaker's high-performance pickup, the Raptor was usually the most powerful model out of Ford's F-150 lineup. That changes for the 2019 model year.

The new 2019 Ford F-150 Limited gets the same engine as the Raptor. This means the range-topping model will be good for 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. While the engine is the same, the Limited trim features a new dual exhaust system. The addition of the engine, as Ford claims, makes the F-150 Limited the most powerful light-duty pickup on the market.

Unlike the Raptor, the F-150 Limited retains its luxurious qualities, trading the performance truck's off-roading components with more opulent ones. On the inside, owners are treated to things like a suede headliner, two-tone leather, multicontour front seats with a massage function, a heated steering wheel, and heated and ventilated captain's chairs. In true luxury fashion, each model comes with a laser-etched plaque on the center console armrest with a unique serial number.

Ford has also updated the pickup's list of technology features. The Limited trim may be luxurious, but it still knows how to tow, which is why an integrated trailer brake controller and a 360-degree camera with dynamic hitch assist are both standard. Other standard equipment includes adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go functionality, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, and active park assist. Pro Trailer Backup Assist is optional.

Pricing for the 2019 Ford F-150 Limited hasn't been announced yet. The 2018 model year started at $62,855, which includes the hefty $1,495 destination fee. With the addition of the Raptor's engine, more luxurious touches, and more high-tech equipment, we wouldn't be surprised to see an even higher price tag.
