Ford line of trucks announces new Raptor extremely powerful and fast as well.
The 2017 Ford Raptor continues to follow its successful older model.
It has been released in January 2015 and has a lot modifications if we compare it with the previous models.Anyway we have here a truck with high performance.
2017 Ford Raptor Description
If we talk about design we can say that this 2017 Ford Raptor looks extremely impressive.
One of the changes made is moving from steel aluminum for the body.
The new Raptor has improved fuel economy and better performance.
2017 Ford Raptor Technical Specification
It now has a 3.5 liter twin-turbocharged V6 which Ford says it is good for more than 460 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque while using around 10% less fuel than before.
Coupled with the much lower weight we might get a massive truck which is able to outrun a Porsche 911 of the line.
This engine is now mated to Ford’s brand new 10 speed automatic gearbox and an adaptive all wheel drive system, allowing the 2017 Ford Raptor to provide the most amount of grip on any surface.
The chassis has been tweaked offering more strength as well as less flex and thanks to the Fox racing shocks on the truck, it should be safe to drive it over any type of terrain at any speed.
2017 Ford Raptor Interior and exterior
Its interior has also been improved.
Improvements include satellite navigation, Bluetooth, LTE connectivity, leather upholstery or even the triple zone automatic climate control system.
The interior is quite comfortable and thanks to the Recaro seats, quite safe as well.
The buyer can also chose different seats as well as a bigger infotainment system but there are quite inexpensive, so it is well worth it.
The outside of the 2017 Ford Raptor has been buffed up over the usual F-150.
The front end has a unique design with LED headlights, a massive Ford brand on the grille as well as the usual rock-crawling bumper.
The side has black plastic protections all around and at the back it now has LED tail lights as well as a quad-exhaust system for the V6.
