DEARBORN, Mich., May 24, 2018 – Ford is making its iconic F-150 Raptor – the ultimate high-performance off-road pickup – even better with upgraded technology including class-exclusive, electronically controlled FOX™ shocks, new Trail Control™ and all-new Recaro sport seats. The upgrades are focused on key components that have made F-150 Raptor the benchmark in off-road trucks for an even tougher, smarter, more capable trail runner. “Raptor’s success is rooted in its incredible suspension, superb vehicle control and the confidence the truck instills in its owners,” said Hermann Salenbauch, global director, Ford Performance vehicle programs. “Upgrades to the 2019 F-150 Raptor have improved all three to new levels that the competition will have to benchmark – again.” While Raptor has plenty of torque and horsepower, building a high-performance off-road truck isn’t just about engine power – it’s also about the suspension. Raptor’s suspension upgrades make it even more capable of clawing away at the terrain. To enhance Raptor’s already proven internal bypass shocks, Ford Performance worked directly with FOX to develop all-new electronically controlled Live Valve technology for the new platform that continuously adjusts damping in real-time. This class-exclusive setup uses sensors in the suspension and body to maximize comfort, handling and bottom-out resistance. “By automatically varying compression rates, Raptor can now make the most of its suspension travel of 13 inches at the front and 13.9 inches at the rear,” said Salenbauch. “The 2019 Raptor is not just more capable off-road. It’s smarter.” Paired with Raptor’s Terrain Management System™, Live Valve suspension technology can increase the truck’s high-speed off-road capability while also enabling smooth on-road driving performance. “Not many trucks need sensors to detect when you are midair,” said Salenbauch. “Raptor sets the dampers to full stiffness to help smooth shock performance as the truck lands.” Low-speed performance off-road is also improved. New Trail Control helps F-150 Raptor drivers navigate challenging conditions. It’s like cruise control for low-speed, rugged terrain, automatically adjusting power and braking to each individual wheel to allow drivers to focus on steering over rugged terrain. Trail Control can be activated at speeds from 1 mph up to 20 mph depending on driveline position. The system makes everything easier – from driving on a simple two-track trail to traversing a rocky hill climb. Not only can Trail Control automatically draw significant engine torque to overcome steep obstacles, it can individually brake the wheels so the truck comes down smoothly on the other side. Raptor drivers now have enhanced seats to help keep them firmly in place for improved confidence at low and high speeds. All-new Recaro sport seats provide aggressive support with generous bolstering in the seat back and cushion. This available seat design features blue Alcantara inserts and accent stitching inspired by the Light Speed-colored interior of the Ford GT supercar. Raptor’s aggressive exterior gets even more intense for 2019 with eye-catching new colors including Ford Performance Blue, Velocity Blue and Agate Black. An enhanced rear appliqué and available newly designed beadlock-capable wheels round out the new look. The upgraded 2019 F-150 Raptor will be built at Dearborn Truck Plant. It goes on sale in late 2018. ============================================== ► Please contact this email if you have any copyright issues: firstname.lastname@example.org ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ► If you love cars you should subscribe now to Auto TV the world famous automotive channel: https://goo.gl/SGPqjc #newcars #autotv #cartv #topcar #topsuv

2019 Ford Raptor - Ford released the all new Raptor less than a year ago but it already looks like the company is about to release an update. So far the details are still scarce but it looks like the car will hit the market with the future 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor. The truck will come with an updated powertrain and likely a few changes to its running gear as well. The end result should be a faster and more aggressive vehicle that will allow Ford to maintain their domination on the full-size truck market. Even though the manufacturer decided to keep quiet so far, it looks like the future Raptor is well under development. 2019 Ford Raptor The current F-150 Raptor options a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 powerplant, which makes an remarkable 510 ft. lb. of torque. Even so, Ford’s recent motor selection for your new Raptor is usually a polarizing subject for a lot of, such as these from the off-road community. 2019 Ford Raptor Ford is primed to start out giving the new 7.0L V8 inside the Raptor in 2018 (being a 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor model). We think this was part of their strategy from day one; maximize the product sales output on the preliminary Gen-2 production run, then offer you a V8 alternative once the demand is large. Based mostly on Ford’s recent model facelift campaigns, we also expect the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor Engine to acquire a facelift/refresh in conjunction with the new 10-speed transmission and 7.0L V8 motor possibility
