2017 Raptor

Ford has been making lots of design changes to the already top-selling F150 line, and now to show off how they’ve translated to the F-150 Raptor, they’ve released some new videos from what would be a dream vacation for us here at Takes on Tech, going off road in the same Mojave Desert terrain where the truck was tested and designed.

The six-part monthly series that shows why F-150 Raptor is the ultimate high-performance off-road pickup truck. Forged from high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy that helps the truckshed more than 500 pounds, F-150 Raptor is inspired by Ford’s performance heritage in off-road racing that includes Best in the Desert, Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and the famous Baja 1000.

Redesigned, larger FOX Racing Shox with more suspension travel and all-new terrain management technology help F-150 Raptor tackle the toughest of surfaces. An available Torsen front differential increases off-road capability further.

The all-new 2017 Raptor is powered by Ford’s new, second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, with more horsepower and torque than previous Raptor’s 411-horsepower, 434-lb.-ft. 6.2-liter V8, plus an all-new 10-speed transmission.

As a long time F-150 driver, I look forward to seeing the rest of the series (detailed below) and seeing how the Raptor proves that a Woman’s Best Friend is Her Truck!

Video series highlights:

  • Video 1: F-150 Raptor’s jaw-dropping off-road agility and capability
  • Video 2: All-new BF Goodrich KO2 Tires
  • Video 3: Six preset driving modes that optimize F-150 Raptor’s performance for virtually every terrain
