How Tough Is the Ford F-150 Raptor? Well, the Company Wants to Show You

It’s one thing to describe the capabilities and features of the all-new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor – the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 Raptor ever. But nothing compares to seeing F-150 Raptor do what it does best (watch the video at the end of this article).

Shot on the same Mojave Desert terrain where F-150 Raptor was designed and tested to excel, the Ford video is a six-part monthly series that shows why F-150 Raptor is the ultimate high-performance off-road pickup truck.

Forged from high-strength, military-grade, aluminium alloy that helps the truck shed more than 500 pounds, F-150 Raptor is inspired by Ford’s performance heritage in off-road racing that includes Best in the Desert, Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and the famous Baja 1000.

Redesigned, larger FOX Racing Shox with more suspension travel and all-new terrain management technology help F-150 Raptor tackle the toughest of surfaces. An available Torsen front differential increases off-road capability further.

The all-new 2017 Raptor is powered by Ford’s new, second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, with more horsepower and torque than previous Raptor’s 411-horsepower, 588Nm 6.2-liter V8, plus an all-new 10-speed transmission.
