Ford debuts ‘off-road cruise control’ in the F150 Raptor

Ford debuts ‘off-road cruise control’ in the F150 Raptor

-    Called the Trail Control, it controls braking and throttle, thus allowing drivers to focus entirely on steering.

-    It can be activated at speeds from 1 mph up to 20 mph (1.6-32kmph) and can be operated in all the 4x4 modes.

-    The Trail Control can also send torque to individual tyres and help the truck dig itself out when stuck in the sand. 

Ford has updated the 2019 F150 Raptor with a new feature called the Trail Control. It is essentially a cruise control for off-road driving, where the driver only has to give steering inputs without worrying about throttle and braking. 

The Trail Control can be activated in all 4x4 modes – 2H, 4A, 4H and 4L – and can be operated at speeds from 1 mph up to 20 mph (1.6-32kmph). Apart from that, the off-road cruise control can also help the pick-up truck to automatically direct torque to each wheel and then brake accordingly. This helps it smoothly overcome steep obstacles. Ford also says that the new feature can help in digging the truck out if it happens to get stuck in the sand.

The updated Raptor also has adaptive dampers with sensors on the suspension. It monitors the truck’s suspensions and dampers depending on the truck’s terrain even when it gets airborne. The 2019 F150 Raptor will arrive later this year and will hit the streets next year. Meanwhile, the Trail Control feature will make its way to other SUVs in the Blue Oval’s line-up in the years to come.
