The 2017 Ford Raptor is going to be incredible. Will you be in the market for one?

Whether you want to tackle sand dunes or you just want to drive the best looking truck on the road, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is going to get you there. The Raptor takes the best-selling truck for 39 years and, simply put, takes it to a level that can only be described as awesome.

This year Ford has opted for a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 as opposed to the outgoing V8. The result is a Raptor that is both more powerful and more efficient. Ford also equipped the new model with a 10-speed transmission, controllable via paddle shifters.

The latest changes for the new Ford Raptor include some exterior improvements, changes that make it more outdoor capable and give it a more attractively aggressive look. Both the front and rear bumpers have been rounded off a bit, making it less a chance that they can get in the way as you negotiate those dunes.

The new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is 500 pounds lighter this year. Add that to the new engine and you won’t have much need for roads.
