If you've never driven a Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, you are in for a treat. This truck is perfect for taking to the mountains, going hiking, or just to show off to your friends. Keep in mind that off-roading and towing are not allowed and Turo's insurance does not cover those activities.
The Raptor has a track widened seven inches over that of a normal F-150, with reinforced underpinnings suspended by unique front coil springs and rear leaf springs, is what gives the Raptor its impressive front and rear suspension articulation of 11.2 and 12.1 inches, respectively.
Cool details abound the chassis, too, particularly the “SVT” stampings on the aluminum control arms. But the magic lies in the massive three-stage, internal-bypass shocks from Fox Racing. Commonly found in purpose-built racing trucks and pre-runners, these high-end units compress progressively, with a firm initial stage for good body control and softer second and third stages that allow maximum wheel travel at high speeds off-road.
On the highway, the Raptor feels much like the softer-sprung, four-wheel-drive F-150 on which it’s based, with the shocks keeping the body from flopping about during transitions.
