Ford is taming the Raptor, putting its 3.5-liter V6 into the F-150 Limited to add a touch of class to the savage power.
Adding the 450 hp, 510 lb-ft engine to the luxurious F-150 Limited means that you get the most powerful engine in the F-150 range along with a pretty great place to sit.
“It was important for us to get this interior just right as we continue to raise the bar for premium pickup trucks,” said Aileen Barraza, Ford color and materials manager. “The materials we chose to incorporate are authentic, distinctive and durable.”
Along with the extra 55 hp and 110 lb-ft you get over the 5.0-liter V8, the F-150 Limited also offers a suede headliner, a leather-topped instrument panels and door panels, ventilated seats, gradated ash swirl trim, as you’d expect from the Limited.
You also get raised lettering on the hood, 22-inch, aluminum wheels, satin-finish window trim and door handles, and each F-150 Limited comes with a laser-etched plaque on the center console bearing its serial number.
Standard adaptive cruise control, 360-degree camera, lane-keep assist, and emergency braking all combine to make this as much of a tech showcase as the engine.
F-150 customers “wanted more power, so we combined Raptor’s engine with Limited’s business-class features to deliver Baja fierceness, boardroom style and the grit to tackle tough jobs,” says Todd Eckert, Ford’s truck group marketing boss.
