Even though Ford declines to give exact power figures, we know the truck will be faster than before thanks to the latest generation F-150's aluminum body which is said to be lighter by more than 220kg.
An all new four-wheel drive with torque-on-demand transfer case features in the truck with an optional Torsen front differential for increased off-road capability.
Six preset driving modes lets the driver choose how he/she wants the truck to behave by adjusting its powertrain, driveline, traction control, ABS and AdvanceTrac stability control.
- Normal mode for everyday driving
- Street mode for higher-performance, on-road driving
- Weather mode for rain, snow or ice
- Mud and sand mode for muddy and sandy trails and terrain
- Baja mode for high-speed desert running
- Rock mode for low-speed rock crawling
The new Raptor is said to be 6 inches wider than the standard F-150 for improved stability off-road and it also gets a revised suspension with increased travel.
Elsewhere, new 17-inch wheels shod in next-generation BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires specifically designed for off-road performance comes as standard.
