WESTLAND, Mich.–– The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has already proven to be one of the most capable products in Ford's lineup with its list of amazing new features. This new Raptor truck will take you from the road to the sandy desert to the rockiest terrain and back. Earlier this year Ford released a very close to stock 2017 Raptor to race in the Best in the Desert off-road series in the new factory stock class to show just what this truck can do. There's just one more stock feature unique to this truck that makes it one step ahead of its competition. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor comes with the most capable tires yet, the BFGoodrich all-terrain T/A KO2 tires.
This special set of tires were used with the Best in the Desert 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. The all-terrain tires were developed in-line with the trucks chassis meant to make the ride more comfortable and to improve on and off road performance. The T/A KO2 tires feature a racing cut with a "chip-and-tear-resistant" tread compound. The Ford and BFGoodrich engineers who worked on these tires went through a dozen versions before they decided on the final to match the performance of the Raptor.
The tires were put through hundreds of hours of simulations to see how they would react in real life situations. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor comes with an all-new terrain management system which includes six driving modes including: Normal for everyday driving, Weather mode for snow/rain/ice, Mud and Sand mode for trails and terrain, Baja mode for desert running, Street mode for performance on-road driving, and Rock mode for low-speed rock crawling.
Ford is all about innovation and offering its customers best performance options through specialized stock parts. In fact, Ford is working with Michelin to make tires for its entire performance lineup including the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, Ford Focus RS, and the Ford GT supercar. Not only does Ford focus on the feature offerings for its performance lineup but its regular and fleet lineups too to make its customers lives more convenient. Whether you want something that can take you off-road like the Ford F-150 Raptor or an everyday vehicle with capability and space like the Ford Escape, Ford's got it.
