Although this truck won’t be ready until later this year, it’s time to get excited about the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew that’s coming to Union County NJ!
This muscular truck is anything but ordinary. From the custom logo stamped across the grille to its four doors (all full-size), the 2017 Raptor F-150 SuperCrew has gotten the attention of truck lovers everywhere. Let’s check out what the new Raptor is featuring for 2017.
The 2017 Raptor: Lighter, Yet More Agile.
The wheelbase on the new Raptor has been lengthened in addition to the vehicle weighing a quarter of a ton less than the last Raptor. That’s right—500 pounds of weight has been stripped off to bring you a lighter, more versatile F-150.
The 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine in this truck also packs more power yet is less bulky than the previous engine. This means your 2017 F-150 Raptor is going to be faster, more powerful, and more versatile. There won’t be much this new truck can’t do!
Updated 10-Speed Drivetrain
The 2017 F-150 Raptor contains a 10-speed transmission that’s paddle-shifting. It’ll also feature six different settings that allow you to optimize the time you spend on the highway as well as your off-roading adventures. The settings include Normal, Rock, Sand, Weather, Street, and Baja. Talk about updated! This truck is ready for anything: you can tell just by looking at its longer wheelbase, muscled body, and aggressive grille.
Longer Wheelbase: More Room for the 2017 F-150 Raptor SuperCrew.
The wheelbase is a full 12 inches longer to be exact. This has been exclusively added to the back cab, so your passengers are more comfortable than ever. Or, if carrying passengers isn’t your aim with the new Raptor, there’s plenty of room back there for storage!
More Off-Roading Fun As Expected.
This beast was meant to get you off paved roads and onto some versatile terrain, whether you want to take your Raptor to the sand dunes or crawl over some boulders with it. The twin-turbo engine has some serious output, so the Raptor is expected to get the most horsepower ever with some great torque.
The new Ford Raptor is designed to get the best torque and horsepower while still remaining a comfortable and spacious vehicle. For your best on-street riding combined with the off-roading abilities you crave, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor could be your next ride.
