The Blue Oval has given the Ford F-150 Raptor 2019 a significant upgrade to transfer the already tough pickup truck into a more excellent off-roader. Now, it is much simpler to drive the pickup in bumpy roads when Ford also upgrades the suspension system of the Raptor after adding bigger diameter Fox shocks for the already-improved 2017 model.
The newest F-150 Raptor is now equipped with Live Valve tech which can change the compression ratio to modify the damping to the front terrain. The suspension has sensors while the body controls what's going on and adjust settings accordingly. This technology can even recognize if the pickup is in the air while jumping and can harden the dampers to make its landing smoother.
