F-150 Raptor Terrain Modes: Where We're Going, We Don't Need Roads

DEARBORN, Mich., July 5, 2016 – The all-new Ford F-150 Raptor features six terrain modes designed to handle the most demanding terrains. From off-road rock crawling and desert running to on-road sport mode, Raptor is ready for any type of driving. Here’s a breakdown
of each mode.


For everyday on-road driving duties, normal mode is a perfect balance of excitement, comfort and convenience.


Mountain passes are no longer just for Mustang, thanks to Raptor sport mode. For spirited on-road
driving, sport mode increases throttle response and provides a sportier steering feel – along with quicker shifting. The transmission holds gears longer to keep you in the power band.


When road conditions are less than ideal, weather mode inspires confidence without compromising
driving pleasure. Snow/wet mode automatically engages 4 Auto. AdvanceTrac, throttle response and the shift schedule are optimized for greater confidence in slippery conditions.


For tackling trails and other off-road treks, the mud/sand setting is your best friend. 4 High and the
electronic locking differential automatically engage for driving over loose or soft ground, and optimized AdvanceTrac settings help Raptor keep its footing. Steering is set to comfort, which makes it easier to navigate along tight trails and over obstacles.


Baja mode is where Raptor eclipses the competition. Designed for high-speed desert running, Baja
mode places the vehicle in 4 High, AdvanceTrac is programmed to the least intrusive settings, and the throttle map is adjusted for more linear power and improved engine response to give the hardcore off-road driver greater control. The transmission has quicker shifts and holds
gears longer – keeping the vehicle in its power band.

Rock Crawl

This setting is for intense off-road driving and rock climbing at low speeds. Rock crawl prompts the
driver to place the vehicle in 4 Low, the electronic locking differential is automatically engaged and AdvanceTrac is set to the least intrusive settings for optimum rock-climbing ability. Throttle
modulation and transmission response are optimized for greater control. Additionally, the front camera allows the driver to see what’s right in front of the truck, and it can be kept on at speeds up to 15 mph.

Along with the individual AdvanceTrac settings tied to drive modes,Raptor continues the Ford Performance tradition of allowing the driver to program the system’s settings to match conditions and skill level.The driver can reduce traction control but keep stability control onwith a single press of the electronic stability control button; or, byholding the button for five seconds, the driver can turn AdvanceTrac settings off.
