A system called Trail Control will help you to get out of the sand

Extreme pickup Ford F-150 Raptor received a new function. Machines of the 2019 model year are now equipped with off-road cruise control Trail Control, which controls the position of the throttle and braking force on each of the wheels for the safe passage of complex sections of the road.

Trail Control will also be available for the Ranger pickup truck, which will begin sales early next year.

Trail Control operates at speeds of one to 20 miles per hour (1.6 to 32 kilometers per hour). Its intelligent control unit, based on the readings of the sensors, is able to direct the torque to the wheels with the greatest grip, and also selectively apply the braking force to avoid skydiving the pickup during descent.

Also the system helps in case of a jam to get out of the sand. This happens like Toyota, equipped with off-road cruise control Crawl Control: by adjusting the torque feed on the wheels and their selective braking.

In May, the F-150 Raptor received an adaptive suspension with electronically controlled Fox Racing dampers, equipped with Live Valve technology. They can change the rigidity depending on road conditions, as well as determine the separation of the front wheels from the ground and prevent impacts from the bottom of the landing.
