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.
