2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
Thanks to its high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy1 body and cargo bed, this legendary off-road predator is over 500 lbs. lighter than the previous generation. Combine that with its purpose-built, high-strength steel frame and you get the best-performing, most capable, dirt-eating, dune-racing F-150 RAPTOR yet. And that’s saying a lot. By reengineering almost every part, we’re proud to introduce our ultimate high-performance off-road pickup truck: the all-new 2017 Ford F-150 RAPTOR.
UP TO 500 LBS. LIGHTER
Use of advanced materials – high-strength steel for the frame, and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy for body and bed – helped shave weight. Paired with EcoBoost® engine technology, this improved the power-to-weight ratio by over 16%. It’s a difference you’re sure to feel on every trip.
Roof-mounted auxiliary switches2 are located overhead for easy reach – similar to a fighter jet. And just as cool. They’re used to control aftermarket equipment such as offroad lights or an auxiliary air compressor.
HIGH-OUTPUT 3.5L ECOBOOST ENGINE
This all-new twin-turbo, intercooled DOHC 24-valve high-output 3.5L EcoBoost with direct fuel injection is even more powerful than the previous 6.2L V8. On 2017 F-150 models, the new 2nd-gen. 3.5L EcoBoost will have a best-in-class 470 lb.-ft. of torque.3 For the high-output 3.5L on RAPTOR, that number will go much higher.
PROVEN 4WD WITH NEW TORQUE-ON-DEMAND
To manage power distribution between front and rear wheels – and there’s a lot to manage – RAPTOR includes a new 4-wheel drive (4WD), torque-on-demand transfer case. Combining the best attributes of clutch-driven, on-demand all-wheel drive with durable, mechanical-locking 4WD, this new system helps make RAPTOR even more of a beast off road.
An all-new Terrain Management System™ with selectable drive modes allows you to optimize RAPTOR dynamics to environmental conditions. Power RAPTOR through different conditions by choosing 1 of 6 preset modes.
- Normal: everyday driving
- Sport: higher-performance, on-road driving
- Weather: rain, snow and icy conditions
- Mud/Sand: muddy, sandy trails and terrain
- Baja (shown): desert running
- Rock/Crawl: low-speed rock crawling
