Last time we saw a truck with this name was five years ago when the famous American presenting a concept that previewed current generation of F-150. Five years later, it looks like this name will find its place in serial production. The 2019 Ford Atlas will come as some kind of a hi-grade version of the legendary truck. It will be a luxury truck which will come with premium refinement, a full load of standard equipment and much more.
Compared to the base F-150, we probably won’t see bigger changes in mechanical aspect. Engines will be also familiar. On the other side, several new visual details are possible. Of course, most of them will come at the front, while the base shape will remain pretty close. The biggest difference will be on the inside, where we expect to see better-quality materials, more standard features and much more.
2019 Ford Atlas design
As we already mentioned, base design characteristics of the new 2019 Ford Atlas should be pretty close to the F-150. This truck will ride on the same platform, featuring all those lightweight materials in its construction. Dimensions should be pretty much the same.
When it comes to the cabin design, this truck will come in a crew-cab design, which seems natural considering its hi-grade character. In terms of styling, some tweaks are quite possible. Most likely, this truck will combine F-150’s base design languages with some details borrowed from heavy duty models.
On the inside, the 2019 Ford Atlas will feature hi-quality materials. Expect some tweaks on the dashboard design, as well as new color schemes and similar things. When it comes to the list of standard equipment, it should be pretty long.
2019 Ford Atlas features
The 2019 Ford Atlas will come with a full load of standard equipment. We expect to see pretty much everything that F-150 offer in the standard package plus numerous additions. Basically, this will be a luxurious version of the famous truck, best-equipped so far. This includes not only hi-quality materials but plenty of convenience features like large touchscreen, leather seats, automatic climate control, premium audio system, Of course, count on those hi-tech things like Bluetooth, USB ports, smartphone integration etc.
Finally, advanced safety features will be numerous, like parking sensors, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, power-deployable running boards, a surround-view camera system, an automated parallel parking system, and adaptive cruise control and much more.
2019 Ford Atlas engines
The current F-150 is available with four engines. However, we believe that the base 3.3-liter V6 won’t be available in this truck.
The base model will probably feature a turbocharged 2.7-liter V6 with 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.
The next one would be a reliable 5.0-liter V8 with around 395 horses and 400 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is a 3.5-liter V6, which comes in two output variants. The first one is good for about 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, a more powerful version of this engine delivers full 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.
All engines use the same 10-speed automatic transmission.
2019 Ford Atlas release date
Although there are numerous reports about 2019 Ford Atlas, we are still waiting for the official confirmation. This basically means that you should take all these details with a dose of a reserve. If these rumors are true, we presume that this truck will most likely come later than many expect, probably in the next year. In any case, this truck would be great refreshment on the market, offering a truck that perfectly balances between luxury and performances.
