New 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is a Badass Performance Truck



Quote :
Ford yanked the covers off its new F-150 Raptor that sports twin-turbo V6 linked to an all-new 10-speed automatic at the Detroit motor show today.

The Blue Oval did not announce performance figures for the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, but it said that it will deliver more horsepower and torque than current Raptor’s 411-horsepower, 434-lb.-ft. 6.2-liter V8.

Not only will the new F-150 Raptor have more oomph than the outgoing V8 model, but thanks to the latest generation F-150's aluminum body, it will also be more than 500 pounds lighter (+227 kg).

“When we created the first Raptor, we set out to prove vehicle performance isn’t just measured on the street or at the track – off-road can be even more fun,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “The original Raptor, plus enhancements on the all-new F-150 set the bar for us to make the all-new Raptor better in every way.”

There's an all-new four-wheel-drive, torque-on-demand transfer case, with Ford also offering an optional Torsen front differential for increased off-road capability.

The Raptor gets the following six preset driving modes that calibrate changes to its powertrain, driveline, traction control, ABS and AdvanceTrac stability control:

- Normal mode for everyday driving

- Street mode for higher-performance, on-road driving

- Weather mode for rain, snow or ice

- Mud and sand mode for muddy and sandy trails and terrain

- Baja mode for high-speed desert running

- Rock mode for low-speed rock crawling

The new Raptor is 6 inches wider than the standard F-150 for improved stability off-road (according to Ford) while it also gets a revised suspension with increased travel.

On the outside, along with the redesigned front and rear ends, wheel arch extensions, it has a dual exhaust for the very first time, plus new 17-inch wheels shod in next-generation BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires specifically designed for off-road performance.

Changes were made to the interior as well with added content, three color material levels, and paddle shifters for the new 10-speed automatic.

Looks pretty solid. Equipped with the new 10 speed. Questions on using the a high HP 3.5 EB versus a forced induction 5.0.

2017 Raptors EcoBoost V6 to Put Out 450 Horsepower

Quote :
That's what Ford Global Product Development Vice President Raj Nair confirmed, possibly by accident, during a TV interview on Fox Sports during this weekend's 24 Hours of Daytona, according to a report by Automobile.

Ford officials had said that the new car's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 would make more power than the outgoing Raptor's 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V8, which was rated at 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque. Automobile says they expect the V6's torque to best the V8 in that department as well.

In addition to more power, the new F-150 is also some 500 pounds lighter than its predecessor. All signs point to the new Raptor being even more sublimely badass than the current one.

Truck Yeah

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Sports New Tailgate



Quote :
We've just been sent some interesting images from one of our spy shooters that show the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor with a different tailgate than we saw at its debut during the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit earlier this year.

These spy shots show Ford has opted for the smaller and cleaner traditional Ford emblem on the tailgate instead of the large Ford block lettering that was sprawled across the Raptor's backside. The switch might have something to do with the moderate uproar from Ram fans when they saw the large RAM lettering across the tailgate of the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel (in black) and the Ram 1500 Limited (in chrome). The front end of the Raptor looks like it will continue to display the Ford name in block lettering.

Look for more information to be released about the new Raptor as it gets closer to its media debut in less than a year with a high-output version of the 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost gas V-6 and an all-new 10-speed automatic (with paddle shifters) transmission.

I would love to own a Raptor, but the price is out of my range, by a lot.

I guess I am just old school or something but a truck like this needs a large rumbling V8

You're not alone. The 10 speed that's speculated to be part of the powertrain, should provide good driveability for the little 3.5 EB if they program it right.
