Introducing the all-new 2017 F-150 Raptor. This high-performance off-road pickup uses an all-new 3.5-liter twin-turbo high-output EcoBoost engine and delivers a remarkable 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque for excellent performance at any speed.
This new model is up to 500 pounds lighter than previous year models. Reduced weight and a new Ford-built 10-speed transmission, will deliver better performance than ever before with a 23 percent improvement in EPA-rated combined fuel economy.
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is equipped with a unique Terrain Management System that gives the driver a variety of options for different road surfaces and weather conditions, including a Baja Mode. A new dual-mode transfer case delivers on-demand all-wheel drive capability regardless of road conditions, with the ability to switch between a clutch-driven system and a durable, mechanically-locked system for more severe off-road environments.
“Raptor was designed to be a no-compromise, off-road performance machine,” said Matt Tranter, Ford Performance engineering supervisor. “That is why we made the switch from the cast-iron V8 to the aluminum block, high-output GTDI V6 EcoBoost engine that our team tuned to add 39 horsepower and 76 lb.-ft. of torque for today’s Raptor.”
With a base price of less than $50,000, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is unmatched in its capability for the price. This new model will be available in two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models and is expected to arrive later this year.
