Off-Road Suspension
In terms of suspension, the next-generation Fox Live Valve shocks are the largest suspenders a Raptor has ever worn, designed to react faster to terrain changes. The 3.1-inch-diameter shocks are filled with an all-new, low-friction shock fluid for improved on- and off-road drivability. Based on sensor input from around the truck, the damping rates can adjust up to 500 times per second while providing upwards of 1,000 pounds of damping at each corner. Raptor also gets a new five-link rear suspension with extra-long trailing arms and 24-inch coil springs. This new suspension system is designed to work in tandem with the EcoBoost engine management software to provide better comfort, stability and traction at high speeds, while simultaneously allowing the big truck to put more power to the rear wheels for quicker launches off the line.
