Searching for a high-performing pickup in today’s market affords you many top-tier models at your disposal, and now more than ever, you don’t just have to settle for a brute-strength monster that’s only good on the worksite. Take a look at the Ford F-150 line for proof of this, as its new Raptor trim is more than capable of giving you maximum return on investment – and more fun than you could ever think – both on and off the road.
The 2019 F-150 Raptor model is distinct from its brothers in the F-150 family in many regards, chief among them being the engine lying under the hood and the design cues that it subscribes to. We have a healthy selection of Raptors right here at Sherwood Ford in Edmonton AB, so we invite you to join us today as we give you an insider’s look at what it can do – we think you might just end up with a new favourite pickup!
As part of its emphasis on searing power and ample adrenaline, the 2019 Raptor comes outfitted with an F-150 line-exclusive 24-valve, 3.5-litre EcoBoost® V6 engine. This drivetrain is capable of generating up to 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, in effect making the Raptor one of the strongest production pickups on the market. Combine this with an Electronic 10-speed automatic transmission, and you can see why the Raptor is so coveted.
Its built-in 4x4 system notwithstanding, the 2019 F-150 Raptor is better-equipped than most to take you where you want to go off the beaten path. It can do this with Trail Control™ and a Terrain Management System™, as well as beadlock-capable wheels and FOX Live Valve Shocks that can help you absorb and damp any obstacle. Plus, the new Raptor features a long-travel suspension with upper and lower control arms and tie rods, able to keep you navigating through anything.
The most striking difference between the F-150 Raptor and the rest of its classmates can be seen in its front grille, where you’ll notice “FORD” adorned between its two LED headlights. There’s substance to go along with its outward appearance, however, as a military-grade aluminum-alloy body has left it 500 pounds lighter than Raptor models of the past. A less-weighty and stronger truck means that all you have to do is relax on its RECARO® sport seats and enjoy the ride!
For all the trail-ready performance capabilities that are included on the 2019 Raptor, it’s still a tech-savvy piece of engineering that can’t be understated. Stepping inside, you’ll be in line for the following incredible features:
By now, it should be obvious that the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. So, give our Sherwood Ford sales team a call today to schedule a test drive when it’s most convenient!
