Before we see it with diesel engine, F-150 pickup truck will get the special edition. A muscle truck looks like an aftermarket upgrade, but actually, it is an official package. The 2019 Ford F-150 RTR is a production version of the “Ready to Rock” concept pickup presented at SEMA auto show in 2017. Well, it didn’t take too long for the carmaker to make the production version of the new concept.
Back then, the RTR truck announced some serious upgrades. One of them is a power boost to 600 hp. Well, a 5.0 engine is under the hood of the production version. However, outputs are not announced yet. But the price of this package is. You can upgrade the Lariat SuperCab configuration with RTR suite for $12,750. Warranty is included in this deal.
2019 Ford F-150 RTR Upgrades
The muscle truck looks like one. Cosmetic changes include unique graphics and colors, as well as special parts added to the body. The 2019 Ford F-150 RTR will be an off-road monster thanks to the new 2.0 Fox shocks. These are the best in the market. But, that is not enough. Ford is adding Nitto Ridge Grappler all-terrain tires, extended double wishbones, springs, and the new exhaust tips. Of course, underbody parts will protect the truck from hits in the off-road drive. A floating hub is another cool upgrade for the F-150 RTR version.
Not only the exterior but also the cockpit is suffering modifications. The F-150 RTR truck will be as aggressive as from the outside. Inside, we find a lot of RTR badges, including the signature of the Gittin Jr. on a special plaque. Leather is optional for seats, steering wheel, and door panels.
2019 Ford F-150 RTR Engine
Under the hood of the 2019 Ford F-150 RTR is a 5.0-liter V8 engine. Back at SEMA show in 2017, Ford officials said this engine will produce 600 hp. In real life, it is good for 395 horsepower. Of course, a lot of tuning will be needed to make this truck a true off-road monster. A ten-speed automatic transmission and 4×4 drive are standard for this kind of a machine.
The 2019 Ford F-150 RTR looks like the model that came out from the custom shops. However, this package is an aftermarket upgrade but officially licensed by the company. That means owners of this pickup keep the warranty. This is something you are not getting with other customizations that don’t have support by Ford. In a matter of fact, you will lose the warranty whenever you upgrade the truck with any non-licensed product. So, think wise and boost your drive with an RTR package.
2019 Ford F-150 RTR Price
The F-150 RTR will cost just $12,750 more than the model you are upgrading. You need to pick Lariat trim level with a Super Cab configuration. “Ready to Rock” is really ready to rock, especially off the road. While we were waiting for updates about some other special versions of the best-selling truck (Lighting and Shelby Super Snake), Ford launched this model to buy some time before the F-150 gets a diesel and even hybrid version.
