2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Release Date, Features
We are all patiently awaiting the arrival of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, a truck so fierce and powerful that it’s aptly named after one of the most feared beasts in history. But just what makes this truck so ferocious? Take a look.
Aluminum Body with a Steel Backbone
: The new Raptor is made of high quality, military grade aluminum alloy that lightens up the weight about 500 pounds from last year’s model.
: The F-150 Raptor is just as rugged inside as it is out. With deep high-quality sport seating and with contrasting stitching and plenty of technology to keep you busy, you’ll find yourself never wanting to exit the cab.
: With more off-roading power than any Raptor before it, the 2017 model really knows how to get down and dirty. To manage all that power, the 2017 Raptor has a new four-wheel-drive torque-on-demand transfer case which combines the quality attributes of clutch-driven, on demand driving.
A New Rocket Engine
: Kicking up a notch from last year, the 2017 Raptor gets an all-new twin-turbo intercooled DOHC 24-valve, high output 3.5L EcoBoost engine with direct fuel injection. This gives the Raptor 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. Of torque, making sure that wherever you want to go, the Raptor can take you there.
