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.

Besides, the Ford F-150 Raptor 2019 also gets a Trail Control system which can operate as cruise control for off-road driving and low-speed. Motorists can activate the technology from 1 to 20 mile/hour, and the pickup still continues moving forward with continual speed, consisting of braking individual wheels or power supply if needed. This allows the driver to concentrate while driving.
The cabin also receives an option for all-new Recaro sport seats featuring bigger bolsters than the on-going seats and get blue Alcantara center zones with stitching decor in a sapphire shade akin to the Ford GT’s Light Speed-color.
