5 Ways a Ford F-150 Raptor is Better Than a Modified Truck

In the world of off-roading, there are many options. In a way, that's what going off road is all about—leaving the beaten path. But are some roads to going off-road better than others?

Many drivers will buy a regular pickup truck and modify it with (usually third-party) add-on parts, or buy the "off-road" trim level of a standard truck that only adds a few features, like a skid plate and additional ground clearance.

Here's why you're better off with a purpose-built off-road truck like the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor:

  • You won't void your warranty with third-party modifications
  • Everything about the truck is designed for off-roading, from the transfer case, to the suspension, to the drivetrain—parts that are not so easy to modify yourself
  • Electronic features unique for off-roading, like the terrain management system
  • Wider track for better stability in power-slides
  • It's just more fun to drive!

When you're behind the wheel of an F-150 Raptor, built from the ground up for off-road performance, the difference shows. Find a truck that's fun to drive at L.B. Smith Ford.
