Its features, for instance the aggressive all-terrain tires, industry-exclusive internal triple-bypass FOX Racing Shox™ dampers, skid plates and standard Hill Descent Control™ made it irresistible for those who seek one-of-a-kind driving experiences.
In addition, the Torsen® limited-slip differential which is added to Raptor's 4WD system enables the vehicle to keep the balance traction between both front wheels. What is more, beadlock-capable wheels are also featured here. Their role is to enhance the grip in low-traction conditions.
