Once again, Ford’s engineers have been doing an excellent job. The new model has been almost done, and it is the powerful and stunning 2017 Ford Raptor.
EXTIRIROR AND INTIRIOR CHANGES
500 pounds lighter than before, the new 2017 Ford Raptor truck will be high strength, aluminum alloy, and military-graded. This will be the best Raptor which has been produced; it will be a combination of lightweight materials of high quality and strength. The 2017 Ford Raptor is based on the Ford’s newest F-150 truck. With some new lines and unique touches, this model will have totally bossy look. New Ford’s truck is coming with a redesigned front grille. It will use a honeycomb-mesh grille with large “Ford” logo. The bumper will be also new, made of steel to reduce the abuse of the off-road roads. The rear side of the vehicle, as well as bed and cabin on the other side will remain very similar to previous models. The headlights will be powered with the latest LED technology, for better visibility in all conditions. The 2017 Ford Raptor will also come with some new, larger alloy wheels and tires. Although its interior will be very similar with other trucks, the cabin will be equipped with high quality materials and great audio and infotainment system for maximal comfort. All technological gadgets and features will be controlled via large central touch screen display.
2017 FORD RAPTOR ENGINE
Under the hood of the 2017 Ford Raptor, instead of the old 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8, we will find an all-new 3.5-liter Eco Boost V6. This powerful engine can easily make up to 450 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque in the base trim level. A 10-speed automatic transmission with manual-shifting mode will send power to all four wheels.
