The 2019 F-150 Raptor has two new features that brings the world of automation and computer assistance to the places some people go to get away from automation and computer assistance — a rough and lawless dirt road.
The Raptor’s internal bypass FOX shocks feature Live Valve technology that uses sensors in the suspension and body to continuously adapt to the terrain. It’ll automatically vary the compression rates within the shocks to make good use of the Raptor’s thirteen-plus inches of suspension travel. Bottoming out is minimized, handling is easier, and comfort is improved.
Then you get Trail Control which is basically low-speed, rough-road cruise control. From 1 – 20 MPH, Trail Control automatically adjusts power and braking to each wheel as the Raptor encounters dips, rocks, gullies and ruts. All you have to do is steer and your truck will get you over and across the roughest terrain.
On sale in late 2018, the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor will soon bring a good dose of civilized high-tech assistance — that you can take with you many miles away from civilization. Learn more at Ford.
