Terrain Response

2017 Raptor sounds Smart as it is Aggressive...

Of course, four-wheel drive will be standard, and the Raptorís setup now includes a terrain-response function that optimizes the truck for varied surfaces such as snow, rocks, and more.

i just hope it's not laggy like how it is in the Explorer:

We also tested Ford’s Terrain Management, which is available only on the big seven-passenger Explorer. Using a rotary knob on the center console, drivers can adjust the Explorer’s behavior to suit different conditions.
Land Rover does a similar trick with its Terrain Response system, but instead of using it to conquer the wilderness, Ford has put the electronics to work creating a bigger margin of error on the road.
In the most restrictive “Grass/Gravel/Snow” mode, the throttle becomes laggy and the car seems to second-guess your every move. Turn the dial to “Sand,” and the engine growls as the throttle sharpens up. There are also “Mud/Ruts” and, for non-apocalyptic conditions, “Normal.”
