Ford recently unveiled the newest version of its F-150 Raptor off-road pickup.
The F-150 Raptor's 3.1-inch diameter shocks are its largest ever, and come with electronic control to absorb more impact from any direction.
It boasts 35-inch or 37-inch tires (the latter being the largest available for a pickup), giving it 13.1 inches of clearance.
The Raptor is designed for off-road races like the Baja 1000: a punishing high-speed trek through rough desert terrain.
The F-150 Raptor is about looks as much as performance, with a brawny aesthetic in every element.
Its exhaust system can even be adjusted to give it a "throatier engine sound."
Whether the word "raptor" reminds you of birds of prey, fighter jets, or Jurassic Park, that's the feeling the new F-150 evokes.
Everything from blacked-out tail lamps to the design of its grille is meant to emphasize the Raptor's bulk.
The Raptor's off-road features are overkill for average drivers, but that doesn't mean they won't appear on normal streets.
Big vehicles can be a sign of status and security, and they're becoming more popular.
In 2020, pickup sales overtook sedan sales in the U.S., and manufacturers are offering even bigger options.
Ford isn't done bulking up, with an even beefier Raptor R coming next year.
