What makes Fox shock absorbers special?

Updated Apr 16, 2021 | Same topic: Automotive Industry Updates

Ford Philippines shares three reasons why.

Pickup trucks from Ford such as the Ranger and Ranger Raptor are well-known in the country for their ruggedness whether on-road or off-road. Ford Philippines explains why these models managed to establish itself as vehicles with strong and sturdy pickup truck characteristics. 

Both the new Ford Ranger FX4 MAX and Ranger Raptor are installed with Fox shock absorbers, which enhance the suspension system of the two trucks. With this system, the two Ford pickup trucks can drive through rough terrain at high speeds with control and stability. It also gives the truck better overall comfort while driving in the city.

Ford Philippines shared the three characteristics that make the Fox shock absorbers special. The first one is that it is built to conquer rough terrain. Fox shock absorbers is said to deliver 30 percent more wheel travel than regular shock absorbers, which results in improved load carrying. Wheel travel is the distance designed for a wheel to travel at either the bottom or top of the movement.

The next characteristic is that the Fox shock absorbers are designed not only for off-roading but also for on-roads. Its Position Sensitive Damping (PSD) shock absorbers provide higher damping forces on off-roads. In addition, the PSD shock absorbers provide lower damping forces for a more comfortable drive on on-road drives.

Lastly, the Fox shock absorber is backed by more than three decades of experience specializing in the development of its products. Aside from pickup trucks, Fox also develops shock absorbers for snowmobiles, mountain bikes, motorcycles, SUVs, and more.
