New 2017 Ford Raptor at Ames Ford Lincoln for Ames, IA

The 2017 Ford Raptor is and will be, a great performing truck. It is set to perform well both on and off of the road. The model debuted in 2010 and was very popular so now a new edition is out that is bound to eclipse previous year models in both realms of style and performance. This Raptor weighs even less than previous models and because of this will perform even better.

Under the Raptor's Hood

This new vehicle is most certainly ready to go and is most certainly “Built Ford Tough.” Its powertrain consists of a racing type setup with twin turbo EcoBoost engine that is a 3.5-liter attached to a new 10-speed auto transmission and a transfer case that permits torque on demand. It has suspension that has been crafted for racing and overall its entire presence reinforces toughness, durability and other elements that the Ford brand has long stood for.

Design of Ford Raptor

The 2017 features 17-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires designed specifically for the all-new Raptor. It can also be had in “SuperCrew” which includes more room and additional doors. The SuperCrew showcases the signature look of the Raptor including the grille, large front skid plates and much improved departure angles. The interior of the all-new Raptor features deeply bolstered sport seats up front with available contrasting stitching. You can also get available carbon-fiber accents throughout, a contoured steering wheel and large paddle shifters. The Raptor is now an amazingly 500 pounds lighter than previous models thanks to the Raptor’s utilization of lightweight aluminum structure. This structure is high grade military strength aluminum alloy which works extremely well and lightens everything up. It has a boxed steel frame that is very unique and helps anchor the best Raptor to date which is most definitely saying a lot. The Raptor’s activities really shine in an off-road environment where it can really show of. It has ground clearance that is the best yet. To manage the power distribution between the front and rear wheels, an all-new, four-wheel-drive, torque-on-demand transfer case has been added. The 2017 model also features 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox. This new technology allows for variable damping rates based on wheel travel, which provides great off-road performance and a smooth ride on-road. The wheels are available with beadlock technology that helps with performance on and off the road. The beadlock conversion kit allows for deflation and better traction while off-road and then quick inflation when back on normal roads. They hold tight and stay tight to the rims.

The Ford F-150 Raptor has a high importance for safety and security placed upon it. The designers and engineers at Ford most definitely appreciate the significance and responsiveness of its craftsmanship and equipment. The Ford Raptor has a newly sculpted body structure including things like aerospace-inspired, aluminum-intensive construction and a much-bolstered list of active-safety equipment that exists on-board. Of course there is standard equipment like anti-lock brakes and usual airbags but there is also things like inflatable seat belts in the second row, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping system and blind spot monitoring.
