Summer has (finally) come - and Ford is ready to greet every hot mile. With the release of the 2018 F-150 Raptor, the Big Blue Oval is embracing an all-terrain sensibility this season; and drivers seeking adventure will find much to celebrate behind the wheel.


According to the NY Daily News, the 2018 F-150 Raptor has been tailored for off-road run. Its aluminum-alloy frame has been reinforced, with rigid steel and extra joints added to maximize stability; while skid plates protect the undercarriage from damaging rocks and branches. Fender flares guard the front from debris, and a raised suspension yields 9.9-inches of total ground clearance (which allows the truck to more efficiently navigate rough roads, lessening the chance of scratches and scrapes).

To further ensure a seamless off-road experience, the new F-150 Raptor also features adaptive cruise control technology. This function intuitively regulates speed - with integrated sensors yielding real-time assessments of the roadways and identifying potential obstacles. Should an impediment (such as a passing car or a skittish animal) veer too close to the truck, this system will engage the brakes and deliver a smooth deceleration. This will allow drivers to more confidently navigate every mile.
