2019 Ford F-150 RTR is a lightly modified truck you can buy at the dealer

Posted on

In the event that you found the number of ways to change the Ford F-150, you are dealing with a brand new model with RTR vehicles. It is called the F-150 RTR (appropriate) and gives a normal Ford truck some extra spin and off-road capabilities.

One thing that the RTR truck does not offer is a considerable power hump. The company says the changes can be made to any F-150 with four doors except the Raptor, and let's face it, a Raptor convinces anyway. The RTR starts with a number of new suspension components. Fox delivers its Series 2.0 shocks and then RTR fits on 20-inch black wheels wrapped with Nitto Ridge Grappler tires. These few things should raise the bar for off-road power and a Ford Performance catback exhaust will bring a bit of drama to the soundtrack. We note that this exhaust is only compatible if you choose the 5.0-liter V8 or one of the two EcoBoost V6 & # 39; s.

Then it wouldn't be RTR unless it had the face. RTR says the new grille provides an increased air flow to the radiator while also integrating those relatively large LEDs in the piece. Look under the grid and you will arrive at the skid plate with giant RTR letters on it. Huge black plastic fender flares are added for some extra wheel pit drama. There is an RTR graphic package and a badge to ensure that no one is mistaken for anything other than an RTR F-150.

The interior gets a few personal details in a arranged dash plaque, personally signed by Vaughn Gittin Jr. and RTR-specific floor coverings. And that's it, so we're actually dealing with an extremely normal F-150 interior.

How much does this all cost, you ask? It is not cheap. Add $ 12,750 to what the basic price is for your F-150 of your choice, and that's what you pay. That is a nice piece of coin for what seems reasonable to a Ram Rebel or Silverado Trailboss set-up. The benefit you get with the RTR from Vaughn Gittin Jr. is the official partnership with Ford, allowing the aftermarket company to sell its products at Ford dealers. This means that owners who want something more than what F-150 stock offers can have it and keep their full OEM guarantee.
