According to report, one of the reasons why the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is being shipped to China is because the Asian country has taken an interest in American products such as the Raptor. Given this fact, it appears that the American automaker is looking to capitalize on the opportunity of being able to bring its products to China.

President Trump has recently been grilling American automakers including Ford for building its products in Mexico and shipping in back to the U.S. Apparently, the mere thought of the U.S. importing its own products to its country does not sit well with the U.S. President. The timing of Ford's decision to export its products to China instead is certainly impeccable given the delicate situation the new administration and American automakers are facing.
