5 Reasons to Buy


The 2020 Ford Raptor was born and bred to tackle sand and mud all across the world. Racing versions sporting the same 3.5L engine have competed in many events so this is hardly just a drive around the block. It's clear the Raptor has most certainly been built to handle whatever you can throw at it. And, with off-road features like Trail Control™, which is a cruise-control system for low-traction off-roading, plus big wheels and trick Fox™ high-performance off-road racing shocks, the Raptor is ready to go.


Ford Raptor: Backseats | CarMax

Sure, it's a factory-built off-roader, but the Raptor can also help you bring your family or friends along on the adventure. The 2020 Raptor makes use of the F-150's SuperCrew cab. That means seating for up to six people, so the Raptor has a practical side whether you're doing the school run, planning a vacation with friends, or want to take the whole crew on a camping trip.


Ford Raptor: Front Seats | CarMax

You don't need to sacrifice comfort just because you drive an off-road vehicle. The 2020 Ford Raptor comes with standard cloth seating, however, you can go further and opt for a variety of seating options. Beyond the super cool optional Recaro® sport seats with perforated "rhapsody blue" Alcantara® inserts (available as a single option and not part of a specific package), you can find even more luxurious options. Your ideal Raptor might just come with the optional 10-way-adjustable perforated leather seats with heating and cooling functions for the front passengers (part of the 801A and 802A packages).


Ford Raptor: Tech Dash | CarMax

A long weekend on the trails should end with some good music at the campsite or homestead. Check out the Raptor's infotainment and audio features like the SYNC® 3 infotainment system with its standard 4.2-inch screen and optional eight-inch touchscreen (single option). Beyond the standard SiriusXM Satellite Radio, you can further upgrade your musical experience with an optional Kicker subwoofer or the optional B&O PLAY premium audio system. The Raptor is more than just an off-road machine, it has also got some great entertainment upgrades for those longer road trips.


We've already established how great the Raptor is off-road and it has got a surprising amount of luxury and even premium sound options too. But it doesn't stop there, when it comes to driver-assist technology, the 2020 Raptor has plenty to brag about. With optional features like adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, BLIS® (Blind-Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert and trailer coverage, FordPass™ Connect 4G Wi-Fi Mode, integrated trailer brake controller, and pro trailer backup assist, you'll find quite a lot to love about the Ford Raptor.3
