Take a Deep Dive Into the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor's Off-Road Capabilities
Those are a lot of numbers you got there.
The Drive has done an extensive job of covering the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. Between Ben Preston's first drive, Lawrence Ulrich's "This Year's Model" review, and more press releases, related topics, and cool video than we can remember, we feel like the Raptor is apart of the family. However, like any overachieving family member, it can hard to keep track of all this truck's accomplishments.
The new Ford Raptor is truly a wonder in the automotive community with its twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 and 10-speed automatic transmission. Yet, there is so much more to this off-road truck that many of us forget. To remind us of what this F-150 can do, Ford has released a quick video showing off many of the impressive points of the Raptor...while simultaneously showing off a ton of sweet footage of the truck's off-road capabilities.
Some impressive points that are often overlooked are that the Raptor has four transfer case modes, six terrain modes, and countless display features that leave no off-road question unanswered. Not overlooked: Just how cool this Ford looks as it climbs hills and blasts across desert terrain.
