The 2017 Ford Raptor is Revealed


2017 Ford Raptor for sale at Gresham Ford

Gresham Ford is super excited that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has finally been revealed and we want to share the Key F-150 Raptor Features so you can be just as excited as we are.  
Choice and versatility — the all-new F-150 Raptor adds room for passengers and gear with the addition of a SuperCrew configuration along with the previously announced SuperCab.  Both options are available for order from Gresham Ford.  
Toughest — the combination of all-new purpose-built high-strength steel frame with a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body helps save more than 500 lbs. of weight. The use of advanced materials is expected to improve the power-to-weight ratio for improved off-road agility.  
Smartest — an all-new high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine has more horsepower and torque than the current Raptor’s 411-horsepower, 434 lb.-ft.  6.2-liter V8.  That's right even more power in now available in the all new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.  
Most capable — redesigned, larger FOX Racing Shox with more suspension travel, BF Goodrich® 35-inch all-terrain T/A KO2 tires and all-new Terrain Management System help Raptor handle the toughest terrain even in Oregon.  
Exterior — inspired by the Ford Performance heritage in off-road racing. The new Raptor exterior has chiseled looks that are reminiscent of those found in Trophy Trucks — the most powerful and fastest off-road trucks.  It just looks super cool.  
Interior — includes three color material levels; steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters; and auxiliary switches that are mounted out of the driver’s way in the roof of the cab — similar to a fighter plane — to control aftermarket equipment such as accessory lights.  Because everyone wants to drive a fighter plane.  Admit it, you do want that.  
All-new four-wheel-drive, torque-on-demand transfer case — manages power distribution between the front and rear wheels; combines the best attributes of clutch-driven, on-demand all-wheel drive with durable, mechanical-locking four-wheel drive.  This is one example where technology makes your experience night and day better than before.  There will be no regressing from this technology.  
Terrain Management System — enables the driver to select six preset modes to optimize driving dynamics to environmental conditions like sand, snow, mud, etc.  


Raptor is the Toughest Ford Truck for Ultimate Off-Road Performance
The combination of an all-new purpose-built high-strength steel frame with a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body helps save more than 500 lbs. of weight. The use of advanced materials is expected to improve the power-to-weight ratio by at least 25% for improved off-road agility.  You didn't think it was possible but this Raptor is even better with heightened technology improved on previous models.  The purpose-built frame in Raptor is the strongest in the F-150 lineup and features more high-strength steel than the outgoing Raptor
Raptor is six inches wider than the standard F-150 to help stability when driving off road
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is Smartest Ford Truck for Ultimate Off-Road Performance
An all-new high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine has more horsepower and torque than the current Raptor’s 411-horsepower, 434 lb.-ft.  6.2-liter V8.  Today's first-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine proved its mettle by racing in the original F-150 EcoBoost Torture Test in the 2010 Baja 1000, as well as in repeated wins in other off-road race series Raptor includes an all-new 10-speed transmission.  The new Raptor torque-on-demand transfer case offers improved power transfer for better traction over a greater variety of terrain at both low and high speeds on-road and off-road.  

The Terrain Management System features the following modes to optimize driving dynamics to road conditions:
Normal Mode: everyday driving
Street Mode: higher performance, on-road driving
Weather Mode: for rain, snow or ice
Mud and Sand Mode: muddy and sandy terrain
Baja Mode: high-speed desert running
Rock Mode: low-speed rock crawling
Raptor includes many calibration changes to its powertrain, driveline, traction control, ABS and AdvanceTrac stability control system for optimal performance.  Advanced LED lighting and the available 360 degree camera technology contribute to improved visibility when driving on trails or on streets, day or night.  
The Most Capable Ford Truck for Ultimate Off-Road Performance
An available TORSEN® front differential increases off-road capability. This system increases grip significantly for the front end of the truck and allows it to pull itself over obstacles and up steep grades, even when traction is split between the front tires
The new standard FOX Racing Shox with custom internal bypass technology works to dampen and stiffen suspension travel over rough terrain to help prevent the truck from bottoming out.  Redesigned, larger FOX Racing Shox have increased from 2.5 inches to 3 inches in diameter to help improve performance. They feature more suspension travel than the current Raptor’s 11.2 inches at the front and 12 inches at the rear
BF Goodrich® 35-inch all-terrain T/A KO2 tires and all-new Terrain Management System help Raptor handle the toughest terrain.  Redesigned class-exclusive(1) beadlock-capable wheels allow for lower tire pressures, helping maximize traction when off-road.
Styling
F-150 Raptor will be available in a 133-inch SuperCab or 145-inch SuperCrew configuration
Raptor’s exterior design is inspired by the Ford Performance heritage in off-road racing that includes Best in the Desert, Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series and the Baja 1000.  Along with its new appearance, Raptor still has specific exterior styling your customers have come to expect including: wheel moldings, functional heat extractors on the power dome hood and fenders, blacked-out headlamp appearance, distinctive grille with curved Ford logo crossbar and integrated marker lamps, redesigned rear bumper highlights the true dual exhaust.  Again it just looks super cool.
