Adventures demand more than mere pluck. Instead advanced technology is needed to traverse the backroads - with too many variables plaguing every mile, undermining performance and power alike. The unknown must be countered.

Ford knows precisely how to do this.



As Trucks.com explains, the 2019 F-150 Raptor will soon arrive in Alberta - and it’s bringing class-leading tech with it. Bolstering the chassis is the newly enhanced Terrain Management System: a suite of intuitive applications that assess, and respond to, the roadways. Sensors monitor the truck’s surroundings, recognizing both incline changes and unsteady lane trajectories. To counter these, signals are sent to each individual wheel and traction ratios are increased based upon under-steerage demands. The brakes are gently engaged, and speed is lessened (typically between 1 MPH to 20 MPH to promote smooth handling).

To further ensure a confident ride, the new Raptor also boasts Trail Control technology. With the press of a button this system will deploy a burst of traction, allowing the truck to grip every terrain and propel forward. This proves vital for those who seek to conquer rocky areas.

With the release of the 2019 F-150 Raptor Ford provides best-in-class support to drivers - allowing them to scale the steepest inclines with ease. To learn more about this platform visit our dealership today.
It’s a mighty hill - carved with grooves and gashes, rolling unsteadily toward the horizon. You long to conquer it… but your truck is already trembling. Its chassis whines; its tires quiver; and its suspension gives a sad creak, protesting even the mere suggestion of a Baja climb. This is not an adventure it will let you have.

Ford believes it’s time to take control of your off-road experiences - which is why it suggests that you trade your meek pick-up for a true V8 beast. The 2019 F-150 Raptor is on its way.



According to Trucks.com, the 2019 Raptor is primed for every adventure. Ford has bolstered its chassis with a brand new suspension, allowing the truck to seamlessly adapt to any terrain. Electronically-controlled shock absorbers anchor the braces, smoothly dispersing friction to ensure a refined ride; while continuously adjusting dampers counter body-roll. Body sensors line the undercarriage and deliver real-time traction assessments, identifying both compression rates and tire grippage to determine the proper stiffness level (the entire system will automatically increase or lessen tension, depending upon the surrounding environment).

To further enhance off-road performance, the 2019 F-150 Raptor boasts a class-leading ground clearance - with its suspension raised to ensure 13-inches in the front and 13.9-inches in the rear. The truck can easily navigate even the roughest roads, with its elevated wheelbase protected from debris.

The new Raptor proves a perfect companion for those craving all-terrain thrills. To learn more about this pick-up contact our team today!
