Ford F-150 Raptor features class-exclusive FOX™ 3.0 Internal Bypass shocks with Live Valve technology that can adapt to terrain in real-time to actively maximize handling, comfort, and bottom-out resistance
New Trail Control system is like cruise control for low-speed, rugged terrain – automatically adjusting to send power and braking to each individual wheel to allow drivers to focus on steering along the trail
All-new Recaro sport seats help keep drivers secure at low and high speeds off-road

Ford put the pickup world on notice when it introduced the Raptor in 2010. It channeled the aftermarket and racing world by offering a vehicle with a high-powered engine, specially designed shocks, and wild styling that backs up its off-roading credentials. It will fly over sand, dirt, and gravel faster than any other truck.

The F-150 Raptor is available in extended SuperCab and four-door SuperCrew configurations.

The 2018 Ford Raptor is available with only one bed size: a 5-foot-6-inch bed, which is the smallest available bed on the Raptor. To add a larger bed would negatively impact the Raptor’s performance.

The Ford F-150 Raptor comes standard with an eight-way power driver’s seat, satellite radio, two 110-volt power inverters, and Ford’s SYNC infotainment system. Available features include a Kicker stereo with a subwoofer, rain-sensing windshield wipers, leather upholstery, and heated-and-ventilated front seats.

Fox Racing performance shocks provide 13-inches of travel in the front and 14 inches out back. It provides off-road performance and smooth on-road handling.
