Overview

The Raptor is unlike any production pickup on the road. Ford fit the regular F-150 with advanced off-road equipment & widened its aluminum toàn thân for a purposeful appearance. A 450-hp twin-turbo V-6 lurks beneath its hood. Operate its paddle-shifted 10-tốc độ automatic properly và its sophisticated drivetrain will rocket the Raptor to lớn 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. Its oversize dimensions make tight spaces treacherous, but an astonishing suspension và comfy cabin mean no territory is untamable và no trip is uncomfortable. Compared with conventional pickups, the Raptor is on another level—providing pure, dumb fun lượt thích no other.

What"s New for 2019?

While the Raptor has remained mostly the same since Ford introduced this second-generation version, the F-150"s radical twin receives an upgraded suspension for 2019. The new Fox Racing adaptive sầu dampers are standard, và they automatically adjust in real time as driving conditions change. The Raptor also gains a low-tốc độ cruise control called Trail Control, which makes climbing rocky terrain & other off-road obstacles easier for the driver. The rest of the updates include new paint colors, a new wheel thiết kế, và optional Recaro front seats for added support & style.

Ford F-150 Raptor Pricing & Which One to Buy

The Raptor doesn"t make sense for everyone; for those who rarely leave the tarmac, there"s the regular F-150. Still, we prefer the more expensive sầu Raptor for the enjoyment value alone. We"d opt for the spacious SuperCrew cab and the 801A package, which adds leather-trimmed seats, heated power-adjustable front seats, and a power-sliding rear window. We"d also choose the 4.10 Torsen front differential for improved trailblazing, và we"d splurge on the awesome panoramic sunroof.

Engine, Transmission, Towing, & Performance

Likes: Exhilarating acceleration & engine sounds, hugely entertaining to drive, incredibly comfortable on all surfaces. Dislikes: Transmission reacts slowly under hard acceleration, not easy khổng lồ maneuver in tight spaces.

With Ford stuffing twin-turbo V-6 engines into lớn everything from F-150s to lớn its GT superoto, it"s no surprise that the company chose khổng lồ power its high-performance desert truông xã with one. While ditching the previous Raptor"s thumping V-8 might seem blasphemous to lớn purists, the new truck"s 450-hp twin-turbo V-6 is bonkers. The paddle-shifted 10-speed automatic transmission is a workhorse, but it sometimes fumbles to find the right gear. While the Raptor is too much truchồng for most people, it can tow up lớn 8000 pounds and carry up khổng lồ 1200 pounds in its bed.

Ford"s pickup is pretty much a street-legal Trophy Truông chồng. Its astonishing suspension allows composed cruising on the road as well as amazing control when you"re barreling across the Mojave Desert or soaring over state-park s& dunes. We admired the Raptor"s pothole-smoothing, family-transporting duality so much that we added one lớn our long-term fleet. On pavement, the brake pedal responds evenly lớn requests for deceleration. However, the soft suspension contributes to nose dive sầu under hard braking. The sensation changes off-road, where its brakes & large all-terrain tires feel more reassuring.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

The Raptor"s rip-roaring power & unrivaled capability aren"t diminished by poor fuel economy—at least not compared with its thirsty crew of competitors. Its EPA ratings also align with those of V-8 rivals. In our real-world testing, the Raptor matched its 18-mpg highway estimate, a number bettered by only one of its rivals. No competitor we tested exceeded its EPA figure, while the Nissan Titan & the GMC Sierra 1500 underperformed theirs by 3 mpg.

Interior, Infotainment, and Cargo

Likes: Crew cab feels lượt thích a studio apartment, cabin has many desirable options, vast and versatile interior storage space. Dislikes: Extended cab"s baông chồng seat lacks stretch-out space, only available with one cargo box.

The Raptor"s comfy, laid-baông chồng interior is at odds with its macho visage. It"s utilitarian in base size, but available features such as heated và cooled front seats, leather seating surfaces, & chất lượng color choices can add a touch of luxury.

The Raptor"s touchscreen infotainment system—called Sync 3—is robust & easy khổng lồ use. While it supports Apple CarPlay và Android Auto, we"ve sầu tested rivals with speedier response times.

The Raptor"s 5.5-foot cargo bed is as useful as those of its short-bed rivals, & its interior cubby storage is the best amuốn rivals. Those needing a longer bed that"s easier for loading should consider the regular F-150.

Safety và Driver-Assistance Features

The Raptor does its best lớn avoid passenger extinction with excellent crash-chạy thử ratings. While rivals have sầu similar options for active sầu safety, Ford"s full-size pickups offer several driver-assistance technologies. Key safety features include:

Standard forward-collision warning & automated emergency braking Available lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist Available blind-spot monitor & rear cross-traffic alert
