The new 17-inch wheels are wrapped in BFGoodrich’s most recent version of its well-known All-Terrain TA tire, the K02. The tires are made to increase the truck’s ability to track loosened sand, self-clean, and also stop chunking on rocky surface areas. The acquainted side running boards return as do the large fender flares and side graphics– all with their updated appearances.
Around back, the Raptor’s tailgate gets a comparable therapy to the brand-new F-150, except for the substantial “FORD” block text that stretches from side to side. The double exhaust aids and is a brand-new addition provide the vehicle a balanced look. The receiver hitch returns as common tools by applying its two rehabilitation factors bonded on.
Checking the Raptor box on the F-150 order form does quite a bit to the interior. Included are one-of-a-kind seats with leather and suede inserts, an updated overhead console with 6 up-fitter buttons and commands for the moonroof, a suede and also leather-wrapped steering wheel by applying large, F1-style paddle shifters, and carbon fiber accents dressing up vital areas around the cabin.
Like the basic F-150, the large digital display makes its home in the driving’s gauge cluster and shows countless web pages of information like off-road info to engine and mechanical stats.

Should You Wait for It?
