It remains the perfect choice for those who value amenities, utility, fuel economy, and comfort in their trucks. Yet some truck buyers want even more from their ride, such as off-road capabilities that won’t hesitate in any kind of rough terrain or difficult weather. If you fall under this type, the 2017 Ford F-15- Raptor is sure to get your heart racing.
For this year, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is equipped with an exclusive 3.5L twin-turbocharged V6 engine that easily tops the previous V8.

This V6 engine is paired with a whopping 10-speed automatic transmission. In addition, the Raptor also sports aluminum body panels and an all-new frame. Infused with high-strength steel, it’s the strongest entry in the F-150 lineup.
