2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is tough, to say the least; the overall vibe it puts out makes my day better in an instant. One of the most capable off-road vehicles on the market now shows off a new sibling, namely the truck meant for the 2016 Best in the Desert off-road racing series, factory stock class. Ford’s latest and greatest addition to their already impressive series also benefited from a photo=shoot, where else than in the desert.
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is powered by a new and improved 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, more powerful and fuel-efficient than the current 6.2-liter V8; and, that’s impressive. Over 411 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque come out of that engine, which was mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission; once it reaches the market, the truck will also come with all-wheel drive and a torque-on-demand transfer case. But, I want this one!
