Intuitively designed with toughness and off-roading in mind, the 2017 F-150 Raptor is built for the rough-and-tumble trails of the deserts and badlands. With configurations made specifically for dominating the off-road, this truck is the meanest beast in the desert.
Leaner and Meaner
Ford’s Special Vehicle Team have focused their efforts on improving performance spectacularly, first with a new 3.5L EcoBoost engine that will storm through any terrain. An updated 10-speed automatic transmission ensures that you get the optimum torque and ponies you need to come out on top. Couple that with the twin turbocharged engine, and you can expect everyone else to eat your dust.
The 2016 Raptor features a high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy in its body panels, making it lighter than its predecessor by 500 pounds. Its high-strength boxed steel frame guarantees that no mere boulder can make it twist or buckle.
Rage Through the Off-Road
Careful choices of suspension and drive elements were made to give the truck the extra edge in the inhospitable outdoors. It manages power and torque distribution between the wheels with a four-wheel-drive, torque -on-demand transfer case. With a mechanical-locking FWD configuration, you can expect nothing but perfect power distribution in the wilderness. FOX Racing Shox also come with the 2017 Raptor, which features custom internal bypass technology to significantly reduce bounce. What’s more, the available Torsen front differential makes its way to the 2017 Raptor, for digging in deep and getting up the most unkind terrain.
Upsize the Rage
Opt for the SuperCrew model and get bigger doors, more room, and more utility out of an already magnificent truck. Additionally, the available 360-degree camera lets you capture your surroundings, while the package includes the signature grille, sinewy haunches and the front skid plate for added protection. So if you’re looking to get the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, head to the many Ford dealerships serving Clarksville, IN to experience true off-road dominance.
