So when we get to learn about the upcoming models of our favorite pickup, there’s plenty of reasons to get excited. The new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is one of the most talked about and anticipated new Ford truck models. And it’s shaping up to be one of the craziest trucks out there.
According to new information, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will come with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that puts out 450 horsepower and an incredible, tree-uprooting 510 lb-ft of torque. To compensate for the 8,000-pound towing capacity and high torque numbers, the EcoBoost V6 engine sports some upgrades to help it stay cool under pressure. The Ford F-150 Raptor is expected to utilize piston-cooling oil jets and a redesigned valvetrain, along with dual injection to simultaneously inject fuel and keep carbon buildup down.
If you’re thinking that’s it’s almost time to invest in a new truck, the upcoming 10-speed automatic, lightweight, twin turbocharged, off-road ready 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor may just be worth a little more wait.
