The new Ford F 150 Raptor 2017 arrives on the market more powerful, appealing and lighter. This will be a special vehicle for which the company has built a dedicated platform and brand new engine together with unique bodywork.
The first generation of this powerful vehicle was made for desert because of its excellent performance-tuned suspension system, advanced off-road technology, wide body for better stability, vented hood and unique bumper. It is now time to take a look at the brand-new 2017 Ford F 150 that will be unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. If the rumors are true, the upcoming model will be tougher, more efficient, and smarter than the model it replaces. Let’s check if these statements are true.
Exterior of 2017 Ford F 150 Raptor
The brand-new boxed style of the 2017 Ford F 150 Raptor is reinforced from the regular F 150’s and it will be offered in two sizes: the roomier 145” wheelbase SuperCrew and 133” sportier SuperCab. Even though the vehicle now has a beefier frame, the company claims that its aluminum body helps to lose for about 500 pounds from the curb weight. If the rumors are true, the Raptor SuperCab weighs 6100 pounds.
Thanks to the newly designed 17” wheels with 35”-tall BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2s, the vehicle will ensure more composed and smooth ride. The vehicle will keep the recognizable “FORD” grille and array of marker lights but this time they will be framed in a much better design. Departure angles and approach are improved by small front and rear bumpers. The vehicle has a pinched-up rear end which ensures a real desert-racer appearance.
The vehicle also keeps the sizeable front skid plate, bed decals and front fender vents but they also get a slightly refreshed design. When you first see the 2017 Ford F 150 Raptor, you will immediately recognize its iconic and unique style.
As far as the interior design of the 2017 Ford F 150 Raptor is concerned, there will be many changes and improvements. When you first peek inside of the cabin, you will notice excellently designed front seats which are deeply bolstered. The seats have contrasting stitching which ensures interesting design, and carbon-fiber elements for even greater look.
There is also an excellently designed meaty and contoured wheel with sizeable paddle shifters. The vehicle offers a great number of modern options and safety features so you can expect great comfort and luxury inside of the cabin. The vehicle arrives with an eight inch touchscreen and 4G LTE internet connection.
When it comes to safety features, the customers will be offered rearview camera, lane-keeping system, and blind-spot monitors. Optional safety equipment will include adaptive cruise control and surround-view camera.
Unlike other vehicles in this segment which are offered with several engine options, the new 2017 Ford F 150 Raptor will be offered with only one engine option under its hood. The 2017 Ford F 150 Raptor will be powered by a 3.5L twin turbo V6. Even though there is no official information about the performance of the engine, it will probably be capable of producing around 450 horses and 500 lb- ft of torque.
