Ford F-150 Raptor

The all-new Ford F-150 Raptor is a new take on this American classic. The new model shows just what you can do with the F-150, pushing this pickup to the limit. Great new features include a rigid off-road suspension, a rugged exterior, and added power. You won’t be able to take your eyes off this reinvented F-150.

According to Ford, the new Ford F-150 Raptor comes with a 500-pound weight reduction to improve handling and performance, not to mention fuel economy. A 3.5-liter high-output engine generates up to 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, which is paired with a 10-speed transmission for better acceleration both on and off the track.

“Raptor was designed to be a no-compromise, off-road performance machine,” said Matt Tranter, Ford Performance engineering supervisor. “That is why we made the switch from the cast-iron V8 to the aluminum block, high-output GTDI V6 EcoBoost engine that our team tuned to add 39 horsepower and 76 lb.-ft. of torque for today’s Raptor.”

Naturally, this model has the same high-strength aluminum alloy body that it has had for the past few years, as well as some new additions. The off-road suspension can handle virtually any terrain, while skid plates and prominent badging add appeal. A dual-mode transfer case is perfect for off-roading, while a dual exhaust and oil-cooled pistons increase power. Discover your love of driving in the new Ford F-150 Raptor.
