Ford F-150 Raptor updated for 2019

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor

It will also have new beadlock-capable wheels when it goes on sale later this year. There are changes in the suspension, the powertrain computer, and where your backside hits the seat, all meant to help make the Raptor even more capable.

This feature makes tricky off-road situations far more manageable for novice drivers, so it should allow 2019 Raptor owners to get even more out of their high performance pickups when they hit the trails.

Quotable: "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", stated Hermann Salenbauch, director of Ford Performance.

Arriving late 2018, this upgraded F-150 gets three new things.

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. The setup uses sensors in the suspension and body to maximize comfort, handling and resistance to bottoming out.

The Raptor senses when you're driving aggressively and firms things up, but the general ride should be more supple when you're just cruising around town.

The new trail control in the Ford F-150 Raptor improves the pick-up trucks low-speed performance off-road.

The Raptor, which we sampled a year ago and richly enjoyed, is getting some new shocks from Fox, as well as specially designed Recaro seats, an interior treatment borrowed from the GT, and an innovative type of off-road cruise control for tackling tough, unpaved conditions.

This freshened Raptor will feature front ride-height sensors that can change the settings of the Fox Racing shock absorbers that reset every 1 millisecond. 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. Trail Control can be activated at speeds from 1kmph up to 32kmph depending on the driveline position.

A lot of pickup-truck enthusiasts share a dream: to someday own a Ford F-150 Raptor, the most bonkers pickup in all the land.

Finally, the Raptor is getting new seats to keep the driver in place and comfortable. A major update of the Ford F-150 is expected for the 2021 model year, when a hybrid version is scheduled to join the lineup.
