Testing continues on the prototype of the all-new 2017 F-150 Raptor. And there’s really no way to test a pickup like Raptor without getting it a little dirty.
This summer an engineering prototype tackled the dunes at Silver Lake, Mich., State Park., putting the redesigned, larger FOX Racing Shox with more suspension travel and all-new terrain management technology through the paces.
An available Torsen front differential increases off-road capability further. The system increases grip significantly for the front end of the truck and allows it to pull itself over obstacles and up steep grades – even when traction is split between the front tires. The all-new 2017 Raptor is powered by Ford’s new, second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. The 2017 F-150 Raptor goes on sale in the fall of next year.
