Why Choose The New 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor?

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor

Owning a Ford truck is popular for many reasons. Of course, you already know that you're getting a truck that is built tough, safe and completely unique to any other truck manufactured. However, there are times when even Ford can outdo itself with its lineup. And perhaps you've been looking for the right time to upgrade.

Which Colors Are Available for the 2019 Model?

We have some exciting news for you! The highly anticipated release of the 2019 Ford Raptor has officially been unveiled! Although the exterior wasn't altered too far from the 2018 model, there are some other great features with the design that will meet with your approval. To begin with, there are three new colors that Ford has chosen for the Raptor, which include; Ford Performance Blue, Velocity Blue, and Agate Black. Ford Performance Blue is completely exclusive to the Raptor. The automaker has retired the colors; Lightning Blue, Avalanche and Shadow Black, as well as the orange interior. The standard interior colors include black or the brand-new Light Speed Blue.

New Interior Package

One of the main interior features that make the Raptor a favorable purchase is the Recaro seats. The Recaro seats include blue Alcantara inserts, and for the first time, Ford is offering them as an available package. The package includes carbon-fiber trim located on the doors, the dashboard and the shifter.

How is The Off-road Performance?

Of course, if you're interested in the Raptor, then that means you're also interested in off-road performance. The Raptor is designed specifically for powerful performance and off-road adventures. That's why Ford has placed so much emphasis on the suspension system. Ford has chosen to continue to use Fox Racing Shocks, which the company has used since 2010. However, the suspension has been taken to an entirely new level with electronically controlled live-valve racing shocks.

The Fox Racing Shocks are made with infinite compressions to give continuous damping. In simple terms, that means the suspension system is equipped with pre-loaded algorithms to adjust to the mode and type of terrain that you're driving on. The different algorithms include normal, sport, and off-road mode, which communicate with the terrain management system. That is reason enough to choose a Raptor for any terrain, but especially off-road terrain. You want the flexibility of a truck to work with you when choosing off-road conditions, and the Raptor delivers with advanced technology that is impressive.

Enhanced Suspension for the 2019 F-150 Raptor

But, there's even more! The 2019 Raptor was re-engineered to include front ride height sensors and sensors in the body of the truck. The terrain management system continually reads the road conditions, and the sensors communicate for the necessary adjustment, even if the Raptor becomes airborne. When the sensors indicate this type of situation, the wheels will move freely, while the shocks actually become stiffer, which prevents the Raptor from completely bottoming out.

This is all done automatically! Suspension travel for the Raptor remains at 13 inches for the front and 13.9 inches for the rear. Ford also enhanced the suspension with a New Trail Control system, for times that you're driving at lower speeds on off-road terrains. The system takes over the throttle controls and braking input to allow you to focus more on navigating the Raptor.
