Lexus introduced the 2020 RC F Track Edition today at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. Lexus says that the RC F Track Edition bridges the gap between street luxury and hard core driving performance at the track. The RC F Track Edition boasts improved aerodynamics, reduced weight, a performance tuned suspension, and performance enhanced styling.
Ford has revealed the updated 2019 F-150 Raptor lineup, and it includes lots of important updates. The biggest update is the all-new smart Fox Racing Shox with Live Valve technology which allows the Raptor’s suspension to have continuously variable damping. This means that the Raptor can adjust dampers to be more stiff when in the air prior to landing, or maximize comfort while on the road.
Ford has also given the 2019 F-150 Raptor a technology called Trail Control, which helps drivers navigate challenging conditions in low-speed off-road situations. Trail Control automatically adjusts power and braking to each individual wheel, which Ford says helps the driver to focus more on steering without having to worry about throttle modulation and braking.
Other updates include new Recaro sport seats with Alcantara inserts, and new exterior colors called Ford Performance Blue, Velocity Blue, and Agate Black.
