The Ford F-150 Raptor Changes the Off-roading Game With New Technology

The F-150 is one of the most popular lines of trucks ever made. Whether you need a truck for hauling, towing or off-roading, there’s an F-150 that meets every need. More recently, the Raptor has emerged as the class of F-150 that aims to take off-roading near Kenner, LA to new levels.

The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor, available at Lamarque Ford, has two new features that revolutionize off-road control. The first is the Terrain Management System. It employs four user settings that adjust to your driving conditions. The Normal setting is for typical road driving. The Mud/Ruts setting adjusts the throttle and suspension control to allow tires to spin as needed. The Sand setting maximizes torque to each wheel and holds lower gears for longer. The Grass/Gravel/Snow setting aims to minimize wheel slip. You can switch between these settings on the fly.

The second new technology is Trail Control. This acts as a sort of low-speed cruise control for trail driving. It can steadily hold the truck at speeds between 1 and 20 mph, and it intuitively adjusts braking at each wheel for extra precision. With these two new features, off-roading promises to be easier and safer.
