We could see from the leaked photos that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor looks to be its mass production version. This 2017 Ford Raptor comes with V6 engine that is lesser in cylinder number but more of everything it can offer. This 6.2L V6 engine can produce 450hp and 500b-ft of torque thanks to the twin-turbo system and direct-injection but still offer better fuel economy. The truck is meant to go through the desert so this engine should stand high-temperature and high-rev environment. With such performance, it is unsurprising if people think the 2017 Ford Raptor price should be high.
The 2017 Ford Raptor price is expected to be similar with the old Raptor though it has 3-inches increase on each side and over 500 pounds weight reduce over the current Raptor. This size could means that the truck won’t fit between any trees when going through the woods but still stay in the dessert. Fortunately, it will be steadier after its landing from jumping in the air due to its width that is similar to the full-size trucks. This second generation Raptor should have a better distance record with the more suspension range and even stiffer suspension tuning.
New For 2017
Earlier this year at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, the next-generation off-road pickup is introduced by Ford and now the truck has been spied tested on public roads by the American automaker. The absence of huge Ford print that appeared in Detroit on the back of the pickup is one of the major differences that we could see. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine is a special unit version of the car company that provides power for the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. This new engine unit will replace the 6.2-liter V8 within the forerunner and should generate around 450 hp. These upgrades should influence the 2017 Ford Raptor price range.
Ford and GM together have been developing a 10-speed automatic transmission that will be installed to the new Raptor making it one of the first cars to come outfitted with this new transmission. This means in the future Ford will install the new transmission into its other pickup trucks. Brawny off-road tires and Fox Racing shocks are some off-road modifications you can expect to be added in the Ford F-150 Raptor. Driver can navigate the Raptor through rough terrain easier thanks to its terrain management system added as new feature. Ford has not announced the 2017 Ford Raptor price yet but you can expect it will have the same price with current model.
