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.

@ full of Cr@p

And u can continue your lack of knowledge, lies, and twisting of words!

Its shows every time you post!

@ tntOnline Are all GM fanboys Michael Jackson freaks or just you and gms. Or maybe your one and the same.

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

Now if they had AEV build them a Ranger Bison like Chevy had to do, they could be really proud like me.

Full of Cr@p

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!!

If we had a dollar for every time you were proven wrong and came back with that line.


NO 6.2




Seriously sad that the comments section is always over run by childish "adults" posting crap out of jealousy. I hope the Ranger brings new tech to the game and forces Toyota to up the ante.

I'm Barry Boswick!
Lol grow up guys!!

The Ranger will bring Ecoboost performance to the midsize. Likely will be fastest truck in midsize.

10 years ago Mercedes SUVs had a crawl mode that was very effective, apart from how easy it was to carelessly shift into crawl by accident. More than once I had to take mine (M350 company car) to the techs to have them show me how to get it out of crawl mode. It wasn't that hard but it was NOT intuitive.

Hemi rampage

Bring it

I'll take my 6.2L any day. Love it

Just full of Cr@p

Your an !d!ot
Go tune your escort clown.

@ tntOnline Toss all the insults you wish. You are the one listening to Micheal Jackson. Nobody really cares what a pervert thinks.

No guts bc its gets smoked by a 6.2L and no glory bc it goes home with its head down from the whooping it took!

@ tntOnline So now you want facts to prove Michael Jackson was a pervert. I am not going and digging up facts on him. I think you are one sick puppy to keep defending him. You should really stop and think about what you look like to the people of this forum.

@ tntOnline I think the ranger with the 2.3 Ecoboost will be faster than a GM 6.2.

Just the truth

You had no.problems call me a pervert and insulting me bc I quoted him

Answer the question. You know so much that he's a pervert... PROVE IT! Mr. Truth. I want some facts. Prove to me you aren't lying!

Dont run and hide and change subject. Answer the question. Ill wait

@ tntOnline So are you saying he was not a pervert and you are proud to defend him????

Just the truth

Answer the question

Show me FACTS you know he was one.

Prove it

I'm still waiting Mr. Truth.

@ tntOnline You just keep defending him. That tells me more than I ever wanted to know about you. What would be interesting would be to know what other visitors to this forum think of you now that you have shown your true colors.

just the truth

Stop deflecting the question

Answer it. You are so sure you 100% correct.

Facts. Facts. Facts. Your Mr. Truth...you know everything

Its in your username

..so show us the truth.

I'll wait and wait and wait.

I think people are seeing that YOU are full of cr@p and change what I said to make u look good.

I'm not defending him. No a fan of him, i just quoted a song....

Then u went on a pervert rampage!


Michael Jackson was a freak.

Figures TNTGAY looked/looks up to him.

Birds of a feather

@ tntOnline You brought him up. You defended him. He is your hero not mine.You want something proved about him you will have to do it. This long running defense you have put on says more about you than most people wanted to know.

just the truth

I quoted a song. Never said he was my hero, fan, any of that!

You went on a rampage calling me and gms a pervert. Those are huge accusations that in this day an age can RUIN a person

Now answer the question

You are so sure that he was....prove it!!!

Mr. Truth. Don't run and hide.....you ran your mouth..... No you can defend your accusations

I'll wait!

@ tntOnline You started this and now can't handle what you made yourself look like.You need to man up and admit you made a mistake by starting this.But you will not because you are too arrogant.

just the truth

No...YOU started this by calling me a pervert!!!

I just quoted a song. Your a hypocrite!

Answer the question Mr. Truth..
U have all the answers

You can't run and hide from this

U made the accusations...... Man up and answer it

Stop deflecting and blaming others for your wrong doing

I'll wait!!!

@ tntOnline You have problems that go beyond what can addressed on a forum. No matter how wrong you are you never admit it. Until you address that problem no one can help you.

@ just the truth

Therapy sessions now huh?

I didnt make accusations. You did. Look into mirror!!

Answer the question....


just the truth

You can't run and hide

I deal with issues with the brain everyday.

You made an accusation that came from somewhere. Because just quoting a song doesnt make this come out! You twisted it all around and started calling me a pervert and said he was my hero, I'm a fan?? I said none of that! YOU did.....so please explain so I can help figure out where this came from. For free of course....SO

Answer the question, so you can prove to me and yourself that you speak the Truth!

Because I know you speak lies.....prove me wrong

Show me the facts.

@ tntOnline:

Have you ever heard that Styx song "Too Much Time On My Hands"? Dude, that is you to a T.

There is no way you work a full time job when you are posting in here 24/7. Chill out and don't take this stuff too seriously!! LOL

Just the truth

Good song. I won't twist it around and make accusations like you did to me and call me a pervert... Just bc I quoted a song

Answer the question. Mr. Truth, stop diverting it. Prove it to me...facts

I'm waiting! Dont run and hide

Well, I'm so tired of losing
I got nothing to do
And all day to do it.
And I'd go out cruising
But I've nowhere to go
And all night to get there
Is it any wonder I'm not a criminal?
Is it any wonder I'm not in jail?

Is it any wonder I've got
Too much time on my hands?
It's ticking away with my sanity
(I've got) too much time on my hands
It's hard to believe such a calamity
(I've got) too much time on my hands
And it's ticking away
Ticking away from me
(Too much time on my hands)
Ticking away...
(Too much time on my hands)
I don't know what to do with myself...
(Too much time on my hands)

@ tntOnline The facts are you brought him up. You said he saw not a pervert because it was not proved in court. If he means nothing to you quit defending him.

Just the truth

Thats not defending him. Thats a fact! Your ignorance is bliss

Answer the question

You called me one and you know he was one?? How?

Prove it....own up to your words. Stop hiding. Mr. Truth!!

@ tntOnline Yes you are defending him. The more you post the more childish you become.
