The Ford F-150 has long been one of the most capable and tough options on the market, as well as a best-selling and successful nameplate in Ford’s lineup. With a dependable yet aggressive design and full-size capabilities, one might not think Ford could squeeze any more power out of the F-150, but you’d be wrong. For 2017, the Ford F-150 Raptor is back, sporting all the assertive vibes and renowned reliability of the F-150 but with an extra edge.
At heart, the F-150 Raptor is first and foremost an off-roading truck. That means Ford took all the capabilities and strength associated with the F-150 and added off-road features like an all-new twin turbo engine, a tuned suspension, more ground clearance, and more. From those rugged custom tires to the FOX Racing Shox designed for better rigidity and control, the Raptor was made to tackle every obstacle in its path with no remorse.
In addition to the powerful 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost under the hood, the F-150 Raptor also offers an automatic transmission with the option of a manual-shifting mode as well as a Terrain Management System with six preset modes. You can also opt for a TORSEN front differential for even more control and stability while off-roading.
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor offers other luxuries, too, like an available Interior Color Accent Package or the Carbon-Fiber Package. Of course, like the base F-150, it comes with all the comfort associated with the nameplate, as well as the newest installment of the SYNC 3 infotainment system. You don’t have to compromise comfort, utility, or technology for all the incredible off-roading prowess and power that comes with driving an F-150 Raptor.
The Ford F-150 Raptor is the most lightweight and most powerful of all the trucks that have borne the Raptor name. Whether you’re on the highway, kicking up sand in the desert, or crawling over rocky terrain, the F-150 Raptor has you covered.
