2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
Are you in the midst of planning your big off road adventure of 2016? Don’t forget to plan on being behind the wheel of America’s favorite high-performance off-road pickup. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has been redesigned on all fronts for exceptional handling and performance.
Most notable for the 2017 Raptor is the SuperCrew model that is capable of storing more gear and offers passengers more leg room. The 4 full-size doors make it easy to get in and out of the Raptor and the front sport seats make it more fun to drive than ever before.
Lighter, faster and more spacious, the 2017 Raptor can take on any terrain. Its 6 available drive modes paired with a 3.5L EcoBoost engine make it perfect for everyday driving as well as satisfying your off-road urges.

Normal -Everyday driving

Built with a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy body and a backbone of steel framing, the 2017 Raptor is 500 pounds lighter than its predecessor. While retaining the signature grille, muscular haunches and front skid plate, the exterior is designed with an enhanced rear departure angle for easier transitions from flat surfaces to steep inclines.
To accompany the twin turbo engine and 10-speed automatic transmission Ford has fitted the 2017 F-150 Raptor with an all-new, 4WD, torque-on-demand transfer case. To further improve the off-road experience of the Raptor, it has 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox with internal bypass technology.
Class exclusive beadlock-capable wheels also lend to the improved performance of this off-road beast. With these 17-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A K02 wheels designed specifically for the F-150 Raptor, you can deflate the wheels for maximum traction off-road and an air tight fit on-road.
