How Does the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor’s All-New Terrain Management System Work?
The aspect of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor’s all-new Terrain Management System that has us most impressed is its all-new dual-mode transfer case. The reason for that is that this new feature incorporates both all-wheel drive and four-wheel drive systems, along with electronic lockers, to make sure your new Ford F-150 Raptor can easily traverse off-road and on-road conditions and terrains. So, the next time you take your new F-150 Raptor off-road, its electronic shift-on-the-fly system will be available in the form of both 4×4 high and 4×4 low. That means your system will optimize handling depending on which drive mode you select. Simply put, no matter what you’re driving on, your 2017 F-150 Raptor will be able to handle it easily, efficiently and, best of all, enjoyably.
“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.” – Tony Greco, Ford F-150 Raptor Program Manager
