Ford added a new function to its latest Ford F-150 Raptor – a kind of cruise control for driving in off-road conditions called Trail Control. Its cost will be announced later. The 2019 Raptor enters the market in 2018.
The new system controls brakes and a throttle at speeds up to 32 km/h and can be used in any 4×4 mode. On uneven terrain with obstacles Trail Control automatically directs torque to each wheel and then, while braking, helps to bring the vehicle down on the other side.
Trail Control is also a good assistant to pull the truck out of extreme sand.
The upcoming Ford Ranger, which enters the market in 2019, will also receive the Trail Control system.
The 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor goes on sale later this year. It’ll get the Ford’s 3.5-liter 6-cylinder EcoBoost motor which produces 450 hp, coupled with 10-speed automatics.The newcomer also features electronic-controlled Fox Shocks and Recaro carbon-fiber trim for interior.
The current 2018 F-150 Raptor costs from $50,675.
