The most recent model from Ford named 2018 Ford Raptor is quite a remarkable American truck. At the first glance, probably every man in this world is delighted with its appearance. This model is so attractive and massive from the outside. Everything is simply perfect and the most important thing is that we can expect some redesigns compared to the current model. Almost everything will be better than before, starting from phenomenal exterior design and good looking cabin to the powerful engine capabilities. According to Ford, we can expect this model on the market by the end of next year.
2018 Ford Raptor – Exterior and Interior:
The exterior design of the recently developed 2018 Ford Raptor is still very excellent and amazing. Everything from the outside is so huge and massive but this time, the total weight of the vehicle will be reduced. The whole chassis of this model is made using very strong material named Baja steel. Although this material is so strong, it is also lighter than the material that current model have. That further means that the total weight of the vehicle will be reduced and that the engine performance and fuel consumption will be better than before. We can move on some details now. First of all, we have to say that the front fascia is slightly changed and here we can notice massive black chromed grille. Also, the front side will have so muscular front bumper with the large side intakes.
The headlights of this model will remain pretty much the same; divided into two parts and powered by the LED technology. The same system will use the taillights as well. Furthermore, the front grille will contain large Ford lettering in the middle. Also, the design of the taillights will be changed this time. One more change compared to the current model is longer wheelbase. What does that mean? That means that the newly 2018 Ford Raptor will provide a firmer stance that will increase its off-road capabilities. At the sides, this model will ride on 18-inch aluminum wheels fitted with huge tires.
From the inside, the latest 2018 Ford Raptor will contain a lot of high-quality materials and high-tech features. The cabin will be very elegant and thanks to the longer wheelbase, it will be more comfortable. All seats (five seating capacity) in the cabin are wrapped in the high-quality leather, and they are also very adjustable. Besides leather, we can anticipate aluminum, wood and carbon fiber inside. Some of the standard interior features are a navigation system, modern air conditioning, modern audio player, Bluetooth, USB, WI-FI, SAT-NAV infotainment system, large touchscreen display, blind spot monitors, rearview camera, and many others as well.
