2019 Ford F-150 Raptor and Ranger Will Share Trail Control System

2019 Ford F-150 Raptor1 IIA

Not long ago, we reported that the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor would offer several new technologies, including Trail Control — a kind of slow-motion cruise control that also would be available on the 2019 Ford Ranger.

The 2019 F-150 Raptor will offer carryover exterior styling but will have bigger and stronger heavy-duty electronically controlled Fox shocks, some new interior upgrades and a new four-wheel-drive setting, Trail Control, that allows for slow-speed computer-controlled throttle and braking (between 1 and 20 mph), allowing the driver to simply focus on steering the truck through off-road terrain and obstacles.

The new Trail Control system is similar to Toyota's Crawl Control system available on the Tacoma pickup truck and 4Runner SUV TRD Pro models as well as the Lexus GX and LX off-roading SUVs. The Ford Trail Control system allows the Raptor and the Ranger to work in both high and low range and in all of Ford's Terrain Management settings. The Toyota system works only in four-wheel-drive low range.

It's interesting that the F-150 Raptor will get the new traction tech while the non-Raptor Ranger will have it as well. It almost seems like there might be some technology Ford is holding back, just in case it ever decides (wink, wink) to bring the Ranger Raptor to the U.S. We'll all just have to wait and see.

Expect the Ford Ranger to go on sale early in 2019, while the upgraded 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor will be in dealerships in late 2018.

Ford fans should be so proud that Ford has taken a page out of Toyota's playbook.

Copying Toyota are we today, Ford?

Now they can crawl through the mall parking lot's with ease.

Man Ford never rests. Love the comment from GMS, really dude? Is that your way of saying that GM never does anything but sit idle? i agree

Man Ford never rests.

Neither does their mechanics.

Will they both share the plastic 4 wheel drive system as well?

I'm putting this Ranger at the top of my list if ever decide to buy a new truck again. I may wait for the 2021 next gen. My number one buying tip is patience. Have patience when it is really worth doing so, no matter what, and notwithstanding how hard impatience knocks at your door, and you will know patience better. The truck you don't buy. The truck buys you.

Why am I not suprised the whining GMShills are out in full force?

Must suck to be them and be so negative 24/7.

@ tntOnline You have no idea what is in the Ford 4 WD as you are not capable of working on them. Go listen to your Michael Jackson.

Why am I not suprised that us whining FordShills are constantly out in full force?

Must suck to be them and be so negative 24/7.

I am not surprised they would put the crawl mode in the regular Ranger. Chevy has the ZR2 but a lot more of the regular Colorado's are being used off-road and would benefit with a system like that.

The Raptor sells like hot cakes around here and you also see quite a few used ones on the lots.

You nailed it real BA. Theirs even one using your online handle and switching up a few words ( Changed GMShills to FordShills and added the word us ).

You nailed it when saying “ Must suck to be them and be so negative 24/7. “

@ tntOnline You have no idea what is in the Ford 4 WD as you are not capable of working on them. Go listen to your Michael Jackson.

@ Just the truth

LOL! bc i quoted a song you bring it up constantly! What a tool

btw...you shouldn't even be allowed to comment on here. you don''t even own a truck

You should be on an Escort forum talking about how your diesel can make it anther day without catching fire!!

Oh look. It’s the King of GMShills and known liar, TNTGAY, telling another poster on a FREE PUBLIC WEBSITE, that they shouldn’t be allowed to post here.

What a moron.

@ tntOnline Do you really think anyone cares what a Michael Jackson defender has to say. The fact is he was a pervert no matter what you say.

Who are you to say who can comment on this site and who can not?

Talk about an utter TOOL!!

@ full of Cr@p

Thats your opinion...I didn't defend. Your so uneducated its doesnt matter what u say...

I'll quite another song....Cry Me A River....By Justin Timberlake
Let's see how you'll twist this around.

BTW. I answered your question and you run, hide. And then twist quotes around to make yourself look better but deep inside you know nothing. Mr. Illegal to tune!!!!

Again, go to your escort forum please. You can't add anything hear when u drive a car.

That's like me going to a mustang forum.and talking smack....your pathetic and a loser!

@ TNTGAY

You boss others around, attack and insult all while you have the grammar skills of a child.

You do realize it makes you look the bigger fool than we all know you are.

@ tntOnline Yes that is my opinion. And it is a fact that you defended Michael Jackson. You talk "smack" on this forum. And yes it is illegal to tune if it affects the pollution controls and most do. You can insult me and call me names and all your other childish stuff but it won't change the facts.

@ Brick

That's your opinion as well.

But when your full of cr@p friend twists quotes around and claims to know things he doesnt, really explains a lot about him and you for defending him

And yes, if you dont own a truck.... Dont come in here a spew garbage like he does.

Now proceed to defend him......I'll wait!

just the truth


What facts??? U don't give facts

Its not illegal to tune a half ton... Again u twist stories around so it makes u look good.

I'll call u any name I want bc you are calling me a pervert!!

Just bv I quoted a song and said that MJ didn't get convicted of it. Thats a fact!! He didn't. I'm not agreeing with the court and dont condone what he supposedly did or didn't do. This is where your sick.mind twisted what I said to make you look better.

Your the one with issues.....

First go do something productive and buy and truck so u can actually comment on here..

Second understand the difference between defending someone and laying down factual data.

Third I guarantee if I put a MJ song on the radio uou would kniw the words to it......and I wouldn't fault you for it.. He has good music...doesnt mean I like the person he was in real life .....get a clue you d@mb@$$

@ tntOnlinen So now your ashamed for people to know you defended Michael Jackson. You should have thought about that before you run your mouth. At least you have your ignorance.

@TNTGAY

You are a dence as a stone. All I said was don’t boss people around, insult or attack others when you can’t spell simple words and have the language skills of child.

I defended nobody

@ tntOnline one tantrum after another with you. So you like Michael Jackson so well you have your little abbreviation for him "MJ song". Just

@ Full of cr@p

Again you twist words around to your liking. Your unreal!! Still uneducated as ever. Keep going though "Illegal to Tune"

Go to your Escort forum You belong there !


@ Brick

I'm insulting bc your clown friend twists garbage around constantly. He's a train wreck. He doesn't know difference between defending and saying that court of law didn't convict him. Its a fact. i don't agree with it, but its a fact. Not defending. Full of cr@p needs a helmet!

You telling me I need to go to grammar school bc my phone auto corrects and misspells is hilarious! GTFO!

@ tntOnline You need to quit digging this hole you are in. The more you talk the more apparent your feelings for Michael Jackson become.

Full of Cr@p

And you need to get a life!!

Keep turning things around. You do well at that bc you don't like facts. I'm done arguing with you. Its pointless, bc you obviously know everything....I mean NOTHING!!

What a complete clown!

@ tntOnline Keep defending your pervert. And never answered my question.and you never will because you can't.

@TNTGAY

Weird...my autocorrect works fine. You seems to be the only one in existence with an autocorrect that is in correct. Show you also don’t proofread. And talk about twisting garbage around - where did I tell you to go to “ grammar school “?

The fact is he was a pervert no matter what you say.

Posted by: Just the truth | Sep 10, 2018 11:40:04 AM


If you are able to state that it is a fact then you must be the accuser. How much was the settlement?

@ brick

Oh sorry. U said grammar like a child. Oops, so I'm only one who has had trouble typing on a phone. Sure, sure....u sound like the rest of your clown friends. I can't wait till u mess up and the all high and mighty brick will come back to earth for us. GTFO

Just the truth

Keep proving my point. I'm not defending. Please understand the difference. Im far from a pervert and I did answer your question bc you lack knowledge of even finding it.

I know your upset bc I've proved you wrong time and time again! So your twisting of my quote makes u feel better....go right ahead.

I'm going to stay on topic and say the Raptaurus will have same cheap plastic 4 wheel drive as Raptor.

U want to debate that... I'm all ears...or will u continue to twist and spew lies....full if Cr@p its your call.....


@ GMSRGREAT

Watch out. Your defending....

The guy is delusional. I stated Michael Jackson in court of law was NEVER convicted of the charges he was brought up on...THAT is a fact....that's not defending. Whether is did it or not is between him and the accusers. Man this guy is a complete tool!

Just the truth...is so uneducated he doesnt understand the difference......guy needs to be in a nursing home where the can change his depends for him.

@;gms Are you a Michael Jackson pervert too? Like I told tntOnline a truck forum may not be best place to admit that.

Since when can the Raptor even fit down a trail? Most respectable trails are barely wide enough for a midsize truck.

@ tntOnline If your kind of education means liking Michael Jackson I am gladnI don't have that kind.

@ full of Cr@p

Again everyone sees your intelligence! Not once did I say I'm a fan.

You keep twisting things and we all see your FLAWS!!!

@ tntOnline I may have flaws..I.am proud to say one of them is NOT looking up to Michael Jackson.

Nothing but unintelligent morons on this forum. Particularly Gmsrgreat. . None of you can have a civil discussion.

@ Full of cr@p

glad you can admit you have flaws!!! thats first step

BTW. I never said I looked up to him either!! Again your flaws keep showing and your proving me right every time you post...LMFAO


Keep it up old man!!

GMSRGREAT is just poking the bear.

Your missing the boat if you don't see who the real unintelligent morons are around here. Mostly all one person and his 20 accounts. He doesn't understand his writing style and poor wit show through with each one though....

I think all GM fans should be banned from this blog and drink a big tall glass of S T F U starting with TNTGMC and GMSGREAT.

Next on the banned list should be: Hemi Rampage. He is a first class DOLT. Let's not forget johnny fricken doe an even bigger DOLT.

Peace out ladies!

The only ones banned should be those who are afraid of and can't handle the responsibilities of FREEDOM.

Now, to the point, Ford has put out a dangerously flawed Raptor product for a while now. Their rear suspension dances all over the place. This is why Ford has changed it for 2019 as noted above in the article.

So all you who don't care about truth or can't see it when it is given to you on a silver platter and said that the Raptor is not a flawed vehicle now have an opportunity to apologize. Will you? I hope so, but sadly experience has taught me none of you will.

LOL!

I CONCUR. All Hail Lord Frank.

Copying Toyota are we today, Ford?

Lies! Toyota stole this idea from Ford. Ford is a leader and an innovator! Everybody else is a follower and they steal Ford's ideas!

@ tntOnline Do you really think anyone cares what a Michael Jackson defender has to say. The fact is he was a pervert no matter what you say.

@;gms Are you a Michael Jackson pervert too?

Posted by: Just the truth | Sep 10, 2018 1:46:07 PM

No I am not a "Micheal Jackson pervert" , what ever that means.

If what you state is "Just the truth" then I hope that with the settlement, you have been able to move on with your life.

@ tntOnline You can deny all you wish but it don't change the pervert you are.

@ gms Are you saying Michael Jackson was not a pervert. Do you also look into him.

I think all GM fans should be banned from this blog and drink a big tall glass of S T F U starting with TNTGMC and GMSGREAT.
