Ford Motor Co. in Dearborn today announced the upgraded 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor has picked up a new feature called Trail Control. It’s akin to cruise control for off-road driving.
The new innovation manages throttle and braking, allowing drivers to focus on steering through challenging off-road conditions.
Trail Control can be activated at speeds from 1 mph up to 20 mph, and Raptor is the only pickup that allows the driver to operate the feature in all 4×4 modes.
The new offering can help overcome steep obstacles by automatically directing torque to each wheel, followed by braking to smoothly bring the truck down on the other side. It also can help in digging the truck out if it happens to get stuck in extreme sand.
The upgraded 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor will be available at dealerships in late 2018. Trail Control also will be available on the all-new 2019 Ford Ranger, arriving in dealer showrooms early next year.
