2019 Ford F-250 Pick-up Truck


As it has been for many years, the Ford F Series truck remains the top selling pick-up truck in the country. After a complete re-design in 2017, Ford has added many new options to keep the series fresh for 2019. This series is a staff favorite at Consumer Reports for good reason.

With an all-aluminum alloy body and a frame consisting of mostly steel, the 2019 F-250 remains strong and lighter weight than previous years.  The F-250 boasts four best in class ratings including: GCWR (gross combination weight rating), best in class payload, best in class conventional towing, and best in class gooseneck towing.

Two engine packages are available in the 2019 version of the F-250. The first is a gas powered 6.6L flex fuel V8. This engine produces 430lb-ft of torque. Couple this with a Ford TorqShift G 6-speed transmission, and you will not want for towing or hauling capabilities. The next power option comes in the form of a 6.7L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel. This engine produces another best in class output with 450hp and an amazing 935lb-ft of torque. You can literally pull the world with this truck. Ford also offers their FX4 off-road package for added traction.

Power is not all a modern truck needs to be. Comfort, technology, and the most modern safety features can be found in the F-250. Here are just a few of the creature comforts this truck has to offer:
  •         Rear View Camera - Tailgate Mounted
  •        Steering Wheel - Audio Controls
  •        Tilt/Telescoping Steering Wheel
  •        Trailer Reverse Guidance
  •        BLIS® (Blind Spot Monitoring System)  Cross-Traffic Alert & Trailer Tow
  •        Rearview Mirror - Electrochromic Self Dimming


A variety of seating configurations are available in a variety of materials with optional 8-way lumbar support. Front heated seats are a nice added touch as well.

Premium sound systems and navigation are 2 very popular features not found on trucks that long ago. Once inside the F-250, the feel is more like a luxury car than a powerful truck.

When you combine all the power, technology, and comfort options Ford has offered up with the 2019 F-250, the choices are vast. The best way to experience all it has to offer is to make the short drive to the Olympia Auto Mall and get behind the wheel to take a test drive. The good folks at Mullinax Ford will be happy to help you choose the best version for your towing, hauling, and driving requirements. We look forward to seeing you soon.
