Ford introduces their next-generation 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor – to be unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. The reengineered F-150 Raptor is tougher, smarter, more capable and more efficient. The 2017 is powered by an all-new high-output 3.5L EcoBoost engine. This new engine gives the 2017 Raptor more horsepower and torque than the previous 411-horsepower, 434-lb-ft 6.2L V8 in the Raptor.
The new Raptor utilizes high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy in its body and bed, slashing over 500 lbs. of weight compared to 2014 Raptor. The weight savings and frame, purpose built for Raptor, improve both performance and capability. The next-generation Raptor is equipped with features allowing drivers to more easily navigate off road including standard larger FOX Racing Shox, standard 17-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires designed specifically for Raptor, a new standard torque-on-demand transfer case to better manage power distribution between the front and rear wheels, and the standard all-new Terrain Management System allowing drivers to easily optimize the driving dynamics of the Raptor to environmental conditions.
Look for the F-150 Raptor to go on sale in the fall of 2016 with pricing to be announced closer to launch.
