The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is certainly testing truck fans patience.
It was unveiled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show a year and a half ago, and still won t go on sale until later this year.
Available on everything from the Hyundai Elantra to the Lamborghini Huracán, driving modes electronically change a car s character by altering the behavior of things like the steering, throttle, and transmission.
Different systems vary in effectiveness, but on off-road vehicles like the Raptor, the multiple modes are often set up to deal with different types of terrain.
The Raptor s six modes include Normal, Sport, Weather, Mud/Sand, Baja, and Rock Crawl.
Normal is for, er, normal conditions, while Weather adjusts throttle response, shifting, traction control, and the four-wheel system for slippery roads.
