Terrain Management System™ Lets You Conquer Your Surroundings



Since its debut in 2009, the Ford F-150 Raptor has been a symbol of off-road performance. From bumper to tailgate, this truck has been designed to handle tough terrains and extreme environments. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor takes that performance to the next level with a cutting-edge Terrain Management System™.

The system incorporates an all-new dual-mode transfer case that incorporates both all-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive systems. The Raptor gives the driver the choice: Let the new Terrain Management System™ control the off-road technology automatically or manually select the 4x4 mode desired.

The clutch-based, on-demand all-wheel-drive capability is perfect for all-weather everyday driving, while the mechanically locked four-wheel-drive system lets the Ford F-150 Raptor excel in the harshest off-road conditions.

“Raptor’s transfer case provides the best of both worlds, with the natural benefits from all-wheel drive, such as increased traction in rain and snow, as well as extreme off-road capability that comes with a mechanically locked system,” says Tony Greco, Ford F-150 Raptor program manager.

Terrain Management System provides six distinct terrain modes: Normal, Sport, Wet/Snow, Mud/Sand, Baja and Rock Crawl. Power distribution is handled automatically, which means you can focus more on conquering the terrain instead of fiddling with knobs and switches.

The dual-mode transfer case and the all-new Terrain Management System provide the perfect blend of off-road capability and the flexibility to handle any terrain. When combined with a nonsequential 10 speed-transmission and a high-output EcoBoost® engine, the 2017 F-150 Raptor makes you master of your surroundings.

We recently subjected it to 36 hours of the most brutal off-road punishment we could possibly imagine, and you can come along for the ride. Click here to download the Ford VR app and experience the Baja 1000 like you’ve never seen before.
