SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt., June 5, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ —

The second-generation of the Ford Raptor has been around for a while now, nearly two years, and Ford has decided that it finally needs an update. However, this great truck has no issues in terms of power, it’s got plenty, and so instead, Ford decided to focus on one major component: its off-roading capability. 

The new 2019 Ford Raptor will get the first application of the new Fox Racing Shox with Live Valve, which is said to maximize handling, comfort, and resistance in the bottom-out, according to Ford. This new system is designed to adjust damping in real time as the vehicle tackles new terrain. 

Basically, if the new 2019 Ford Raptor hits a patch of rough terrain, the new system will automatically adjust to it as it reads the differences. The front wheels will signal the system to prepare for whatever the road brings it based off what it receives as it drives, giving the rear wheels time to prepare, and giving an overall smoother ride. 

Additionally, the new 2019 Ford Raptor will also have a new Trail Control system, which is like cruise control for low speeds. This keeps the vehicle between one and 20 miles per hour and allows it to climb, too, using significant engine torque to get over rough terrain. All the driver needs to do is steer the way, and let the truck handle the rest. 

Ford hasn’t announced a price for the new Raptor yet, nor an exact release date, though it has been slotted for late this year, and can be expected to be around the current model’s $50,000 price tag.
