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.
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.
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.
The torque multiplication of this all-new 10-speed transmission provides exceptional launch and full-throttle capability. Especially in deep sand and off-road conditions. Plus, 10 speeds allow for gains in power efficiency.
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.
Travel is king off road. And the all-new 2017 F-150 RAPTOR boasts improved travel both front and rear. So hit the trail hard and fast, knowing RAPTOR will soak it all up and keep on going - better than ever before.
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.
For customized steering feedback, the selectable-effort electric power-assisted steering of RAPTOR offers you 3 modes.
Redesigned, larger FOX Racing Shox with 9-stage bypass damping work to control suspension travel to help prevent RAPTOR from bottoming out over rough terrain. Larger, 3" diameter shock canisters are lighter weight, and have better heat dissipation.
Extending from the engine manifold all the way back to the tailpipes, the dual exhaust on the all-new RAPTOR quickly funnels exhaust gases away from the engine. This allows more oxygen to be brought in - helping the high-output 3.5L EcoBoost engine reach peak performance in seconds. And it was raised to improve departure angle.
Start with a contoured steering wheel featuring large, magnesium paddle shifters that make it easy to shift on the run. A center stripe on that wheel always lets you know this is a RAPTOR you're piloting. The capacitive touchscreen of new SYNC® 32,4 includes a convenient swipe feature, as well as pinch-to-zoom functionality within navigation.2
These next-generation all-terrain tires feature the latest enhancement in tread and architecture to deliver better ride quality, off-road traction and reduced road noise. They're standard issue on the all-new 2017 F-150 RAPTOR. Featuring race-proven CoreGard™ Technology, they're built to take on the toughest off-road hazards with confidence.
The all-new 2017 RAPTOR is just as rugged inside. Deeply bolstered sport front seats with contrasting stitching2 help hold you in place on the trail. Plus, the 2017 RAPTOR is available in both SuperCab and SuperCrew.® With more room, RAPTOR SuperCrew is even more fun.
Bead-Lock Capable Wheels,2, a RAPTOR class-exclusive, give you exceptional off-road performance. Using the bead-lock conversion kit from Ford Performance, you can deflate the tires for maximum traction off-road, yet they hold tight to the rims.
The F-150 RAPTOR Race Truck is already excelling in grueling off-road competitions, including the 6 races of the Best in the Desert American Off-Road Racing Series. Before launch, we've put RAPTOR through its paces in some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. To find out more, visit ford.com/raptor.
Monitor all the action beyond the pavement on the off-road display in the 8" productivity screen (4.2" screen shown). Located in the RAPTOR instrument cluster, you can check your truck's pitch, roll, steering angle and driveline status.
To help you better maneuver down narrow off-road trails and steer clear of rocks, the 360-degree camera with Split-view Display2,5provides multiple views around RAPTOR. To keep dust from obscuring your front view, the forward-facing camera includes a lens washer that's activated when the windshield washers are used.
