2017 Ford F-150 Raptor: What A Beautiful Mess!
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is America's number one pickup truck and it juts recently proved itself once again by winning the "Four Wheeler Pickup Truck of The Year Award". On the highway, the Raptor drives well and is surprisingly smooth in every angle. And with the new 10-speed transmission, there's always the right gear at the right time, offering better acceleration and performance compared with the previous 6-speed auto transmission.
Driving And Performance
The biggest upgrade is the engine. The '17 Raptor uses the newest version of Ford's twin-turbo 3.5 liter V6 A 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 makes 450 hp and 510 lb-ft; it pairs with a 10-speed automatic. Rated at 18 mpg highway, it's more efficient than previous models and more noteworthy, it hits 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. Its standard all-wheel drive, featuring a locking center diff, can auto-shift to the rear wheels depending on drive mode. SuperCab and SuperCrew models are offered.
As for the 2017 model, gone is the 6.2L V8 in lieu of the more efficient 3.5L EcoBoost, which is a 3-percent improvement in fuel efficiency and a 5-percent decrease in drag to further increase fuel figures. Paired with the F-150's aluminum body and unique body panels, the 2017 Raptor sits 6-inches wider than the F-150, and is 500-lbs lighter compared to the outgoing Raptor. Sitting on 17-inch wheels, the Raptor comes in two wheel choices covered in second-generation BFGoodrich K02 tires designed especially for this monster truck. According to a source, the 2017 F-150 Raptor offers more rough-and-tumble than any other picktruck released with plenty of power and with the Baja drive mode that takes no prisoners on the dirt.
This year, the Raptor comes in two sizes, the Super Cab and Super Crew. As for the price, the slightly longer Super Crew is around $3,000 more than the base Super Cab which offers more legroom than almost anything this side of a truck. Furthermore, the company has sold more than a million EcoBoost engines proving that Ford improves its winning turbo strategy, although if it does cost buyers anywhere from $750 to $2,950 for the big V6, which depends on configuration. The new 3.5L EcoBoost regardless of its price tag, makes the 2017 Ford F-150 raptor much further ahead of every other half-ton on the market.
