Ford F-150 Raptor- Get ready for a great ride even if you never take it off road.

The ford’s Beastly truck returns with Aluminium body and Twin Turbo V-6.
Ford’s Second generation F-150 Raptor has made a comeback in automobile market with spectacular performance features and high performance off road operations. This beastly truck is efficient enough to complete the Baja 1000 desert race without any modifications.

Why we are calling it beastly? This is because raptor comes equipped with six drive modes so that you can now travel in any condition or terrain without any problem.
The first thing you notice is the size. It is about six and a half feet tall and about seven feet wide.

Specs

Ford Raptor truck has swooned the truck enthusiasts with its off road performance, turbo v6, ten speed gearbox and six driving modes. Ford’s ecoboost technology has ditched the 6.2 liter V-8 for a high output version of 3.5 liter ecoboost V-6. This new ecoboost puts out more than old 411 horsepower.

Raptor is 500 pounds lighter than the original model due to its new aluminum skin. Also dual exhaust system has been introduced under rear bumper along with FOX racing shocks with more suspension travel and all terrain KO2 tires.

It is expected for the ford raptor to cost $48325 for the supercab and $51310 for supercrew version.

Exterior 

The raptor’s design is almost same as that of 2015 ford Raptor. To increase stability, the truck has been further widened to 6 inches.

The rear and front bumpers of ford’s new raptor have been raised and LED bulbs have been introduced in place of halogen bulbs as headlights for better visual experience in darkest desert trails. Ford’s bumpers have been raised to ensure better departure angles.
The new 17 inch wheels are wrapped in latest iconic all terrain tires, the KO2. The tire’s ability to self clean, track loose sand and prevent chunking on rocky surfaces make it different and stronger.

The New F-150’s tailgate design is quite similar to the previous version except it has dual exhaust system introduced that help to give the truck a more balanced look.
This new Ford Raptor is available in SuperCab and SuperCrew versions. These versions provide different options of legroom, shorter wheel base and inside storage capacity. SuperCrew offers 4 full size doors with optional set of bedlock compatible wheels. These wheels keep the tire’s bead secured to the wheel in rough terrains.

Interior

The new ten speeds automatic is only 1 inch longer than the average six speeds. The transfer case is an all wheel drive/four wheel drive hybrid with a clutch based torque on demand.


In the interior the unique leather seats are inserted along with overhead console with six up fitter switches and controls for the moon roof.

A suede and leather wrapped steering wheel with large f1 paddle shifters are equipped inside with carbon fiber accents dressing up key areas around the cabin.

The large display provides various functionalities like providing off road information. The supercrew has limo like legroom. Its storage is quite good as the rear bench seats fold neatly along the back bulkhead, giving clear access to flat load floor.

Its six driving modes are- Normal, Sport, Mud/Sand, Weather, Rock crawl and Baja.
As for technology, the new raptor is equipped with Ford’s updated Sync 3 Infotainment system, LED screens and 360 degrees cameras including the one that shows what is in front of the wheels. Look for ford’s overhead auxiliary switches and Sony stereo set up as add ons.

Drive train

The raptor has been updated with 3.5 L Ecoboost V6 engine with output of about 450 horse power. Mated to the Ecoboost is the new 10 speed automatic transmission gearbox with F1 style paddle shifters. This new transmission is helpful in proving perfect gearing in low and high speed off roading.

There is another feature called Torque on Demand. Its function is to manage the power distribution between front and rear axles with an all wheel drive like system.
And you are already familiar with the six modes of terrain management system mentioned above.

There is also an optional feature called torsen front differential that provides better grip for the front tires.

Suspension

The suspension system of the new Ford Raptor has been updated. The truck comes equipped with FOX racing front and rear shock absorbers upgraded from 2.5 inch canisters to 3 inch. This improvement will provide high performance and great durability. It also comes with nine stage bypass damping and hydraulic bump stops that minimize bottoming out of suspension.

Bottom line

This beast has raised the bar for off road performance. For high speed desert runs and high flying jumps, its updated suspensions and tires are the best. Also the modern features of this truck as Terrain management, lighter V-6 twin turbo, 10- speed transmission have entered modern world of trucks and giving immense competition to the rival trucks manufacturers like Toyota.

Parts Avatar Canada has the finest quality of steering wheels which would help you to cover long distances, so come visit us.

Working of your Steering Wheel
All of you are aware that whenever you turn the steering wheel of your car, then wheels of your car turn as well.  So we can say that it is a cause and effect relationship. The car part is directly linked to the wheels through hubs, bearings and axles.
Many people are aware what a steering wheel is and its uses. You can turn the wheels left or right with the help of a steering wheel. But, only a few people know that how a steering wheel and front wheels are linked together.


 Rack and Pinion steering
The steering system which modern cars use is known as rack-and-pinion steering. It is located at the front of the driver’s seat and allows him/her to control the direction of the wheels by turning the steering towards left or right. It is available in many different shapes and sizes and some of them even have airbags included and controls many other important systems of your car.
The steering wheel’s have a shaft which extends through the car’s firewall. A lot of cars which are manufactured recently have steering shafts which would immediately collapse in case an accident occurs, protecting the driver from getting severely injured by the wheel.
The cars with hydraulic power steering have shaft which is connected to a rotary valve. The main function of this valve is to open and close as it is rotated so that it can help the steering shaft to turn the pinion gear. This would help one to operate the steering easily.
Advantages of Rack and Pinion Type
  • Its construction is simple
  • Economical
  • Manufacturing is not at all complicated
  • It is compact
  • Easy to limit the steering rack
Disadvantages
  • Sensitivity is greater
  • More stress
  • One can feel the disturbance in the steering wheel easily


This type of steering utilizes the hydraulic pump which is directly connected with the car’s engine. The hydraulic fluid is then pressurized by the pump. This power steering is preferred and loved by many drivers. The reason behind it is its practicality and the drivers feel comfortable to drive while using it. Almost all the sports cars use this steering.
If your car possesses an electric motor with a steering shaft, then your car has an electric power steering. One can mount the electric motor easily, that’s why it is more flexible. Unlike other systems, it doesn’t need any hydraulic pump to function.

Electric power steering
It has an electric motor that would help in turning. There is a sensor which would sense that how much wheel is being rotated by the driver. It can also sense the force, which means that how much force was actually used to turn the steering.
Future of Power Steering
In a power steering pump, the fluid is pumped all the time and this would ultimately waste the horsepower. The very important thing here is that this power which is wasted turns into wasted fuel. Fuel economy would be improved with several innovations. There are two cool systems which would totally eliminate the mechanical connection which is between the wheel and the steering, they are:-
  1. Steer-by-wire
  2. Drive-by-wire

Power steering is truly power assisted. The best way through which you can maintain it is by regularly checking its fluid level and condition. Damage can be caused to some components of your steering if the fluid level is low. If there is any sort of leakage, then you must get it repaired in short period of time. Once 50,000 miles are completed, then you must get the flushed out so that it doesn’t get contaminated. The key to keep the power steering pump is fluid.
Shaking of your steering wheel
Problems which can occur to your steering are:-
  • The steering turns hard
  • Heavy steering even at low speed
  • Whenever you turn the steering wheel, unusual noise begins
  • Shaking of the wheel
  • When wheel doesn’t return to the “center” properly
  • Some sort of leakage under the vehicle

If you feel any of such problems when you are driving, then there is some sort of issue with the steering wheel or your suspension system. It can also mean that the wheels of your automobile are loose. If any such problem occurs, then you must visit a mechanic.
If your drive a car, then you must know that the steering wheel is the only thing which a driver touches the most. He or she spends the maximum time looking at it and operating it. A classy steering wheel can attract people towards your car. Thus, we can say that a steering wheel is an important auto component.
