New 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor at Fort Dodge Ford Toyota for Fort Dodge, IA

Ford has introduced the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor as a vehicle that will work off the road just as much as it does while on. The first model made its initial appearance in 2010 and it was spectacular. It was the first pickup that was truly off-road and truly high performance and it also came with a factory warranty. This version will be even better. This Raptor will weigh significantly less and perform significantly more.

Under the F-150 Raptor's Hood

The new Raptor is definitely a vehicle with a racing take and is definitely a member of the “Built Ford Tough” crew. It has a brand new intercooled twin turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, a new 10-speed transmission and a torque on-demand transfer case. It has long travel suspension which is optimized for racing. It certainly is going to reinforce the reputation for Ford toughness and durability especially during the harshest of conditions.

Design of Ford F-150 Raptor

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 2017 also 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.

Conclusions

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. There is also a tailgate and bed cover that come together and lock securely which creates a secure storage area along with optional cameras that work together to produce a full 360 degrees around the Raptor. This technology assists the driver when parking in tight places and simply increases the overall visibility of the vehicle. This truck model has also lost weight which really helps in handling especially when the need for quick maneuvers exist.
