2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Tackles The Desert, Again

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Tackles The Desert, Again

Ford is having some more fun in the desert with its new 2017 F-150 Raptor.

It’s released a new video showing off its off-roading capability and downright impressive suspension. We have to admit, it does look like a good time. 

The new Raptor comes with Ford’s new second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, with more horsepower and torque than previous Raptor’s 411 horsepower, 434-pound-feet 6.2-liter V8.

The Ford F-150 Raptor will also be the first Ford to come with an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission that comes standard with a manual-shift mode. It gets a clutch-driven on-demand all-wheel-drive. This allows each wheel to use mechanical-locking to get the best grip no matter the surface.

The 2017 Raptor goes off-roading with six preset drive modes, larger FOX Racing Shox with more suspension travel, and a new terrain management system. It comes with custom 17-inch BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A K02 tires.

The all-new Raptor will be built at the automaker’s Dearborn Truck Plant, and goes on sale fall 2016.
