Driving Experience

The moment you sit in the bespoke seats of the Raptor, it’s clear this is no ordinary pick-up. A range of advanced technologies and smart systems deliver a driving experience like no other. And at the press of a button you can engage the powerful new Terrain Management System. There are six different modes, each one optimising the vehicle’s fearsome capabilities for a specific terrain: Normal mode, Sport mode, Grass, Gravel and Snow mode, Mud and Sand mode, and Rock mode. For a ferocious off-road experience, select the unique Baja mode.

Tailor-made performance

When driving off-road, every terrain requires a different approach. To help you make the most of the Raptor’s capabilities, a Terrain Management System enables you to fundamentally adjust the vehicle’s acceleration, traction control, steering sensitivity, gear change behaviour and more. Choose from six different modes to maximise performance in all conditions: Normal mode, Sport mode, Grass, Gravel and Snow mode, Mud and Sand mode, Rock mode, and for unbeatable off-road performance, Baja mode.

Race-bred suspension

The All-New Ford Ranger Raptor comes with the legendary FOX Racing Suspension as standard. This performance-tuned suspension has been crafted to soak up punishing impacts, and smooth out bumps and ruts with ease.

Tackle any terrain

To help you drive with confidence in all conditions and environments, the All-New Ford Ranger Raptor enables you to switch ‘on the fly’ between 4x2, 4x4 high and 4x4 low. So when you’re cruising comfortably on dry roads, you can keep the vehicle in a more fuel efficient 4x2. But as soon as you want to go off-road or the road conditions deteriorate, you can effortlessly switch into 4WD for more grip and greater control.

Set your own speed limit and the Raptor stays within it

Integrated with the cruise control function, the Speed Limiter lets you set your chosen maximum speed. The vehicle then stays within that speed, so you can keep your eyes on the road. When you need to go faster or slower, just press the accelerator or brake to override the system.

Headlights that turn on automatically when needed

The New Ranger features powerful Xenon headlights that can detect changes in light conditions. This triggers the automatic headlights to turn themselves on, making driving both easier and safer.

Helping to keep you inside the speed limit

Intelligent Speed Assist is designed to aid your speed control, enabling you to concentrate on the road. First, a front-facing camera automatically detects the current speed limit. If activated, the system adjusts your maximum speed setting to that limit.

Sees the road signs you might miss

Whether the signs are at the side of the road or above it, permanent or temporary, Traffic Sign Recognition can identify them. Icons for speed limits and no-overtaking signs are displayed on the instrument cluster, alerting you to changing restrictions. 

Ford SYNC Emergency Assistance

In the event of an accident, where the airbag is deployed or the fuel-pump deactivated, Ford SYNC with Emergency Assistance can use a Bluetooth-paired and connected mobile phone to help you make a direct call to the Emergency Services. You can choose to stop the call, or talk to those services if you need to. The system is designed to supply vital information, such as your GPS coordinates, even if you are unable to.
