ALUMINIUM BODY. STEEL BACKBONE.
High-strength, military-grade, aluminium alloy makes the all-new Raptor approximately 500 pounds lighter than before. Combine that with its unique high-strength, boxed steel frame, and you get the best-performing, most capable Raptor yet. And given this is a Raptor we're talking about, that's saying a lot.
The all-new Raptor is even more of a beast off-road. It features better running clearance than the first-generation Raptor. And that's not all. To manage the power distribution between the front and rear wheels, we've added an all-new, four-wheel-drive, torque-on-demand transfer case. It combines the best attributes of clutch-driven, on-demand all-wheel drive with durable, mechanical-locking four-wheel drive. The 2017 Raptor also sports 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox* with custom internal bypass technology. This technology allows for variable damping rates based on wheel travel, which provides great off-road performance and a smooth ride on-road.
THE RAPTOR. NOW PART ROCKET.
The all-new, twin-turbo, intercooled DOHC 24-valve, high-output 3.5L EcoBoost with direct fuel injection is projected to deliver even more power than the previous 6.2L V8. A 10-speed automatic transmission with manual-shifting mode sends that power to all four wheels. And the all-new Terrain Management System allows the driver to select from six preset modes to optimize driving dynamics to environmental conditions. Available settings include street, Baja, mud and sand.
KEEPS ON CLIMBING.
The farther you stray from the beaten path, the more you can count on an available TORSEN* front differential to improve off-road capability. By transferring torque to the stable wheel - before most slipping occurs - the system significantly increases grip for the front end of the truck. This gives Raptor greater capability when pulling itself over obstacles and up steep grades.
EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR THE ULTIMATE IN OFF-ROADING BUT THE DIRT.
Raptor's class-exclusive available beadlock-capable wheels gives you excellent on-and off-road performance. Using the beadlock conversion kit from the Ford Performance catalog, you can deflate them for maximum traction off-road, yet they hold tight to the rims - and stay tight - when you return to the road. The 2017 Raptor also features 17-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires* designed specifically for Raptor.
BADDER JUST GOT BIGGER.
The all-new 2017 Raptor is now available in a SuperCrew model. Bigger doors. More room. More fun. It has an available 360-degree camera and, of course, the SuperCrew features the aggressive Raptor distinctive look - the signature grille, the muscular haunches, the giant front skid plate and an improved rear departure angle that helps Raptor transition from flat land to steep hills.
NASTY OUTSIDE. NICE INSIDE.
The interior of the all-new Raptor features deeply bolstered sport seats up front with available contrasting stitching. Plus you can get available carbon-fiber accents throughout, a contoured steering wheel and large paddle shifters.
