The latest F-150 Raptor by Ford
Ford is not an only good automaker producing supercars GT but also a manufacturer of trucks. Its F-150 took the Truck of the Year award of North America as well, and soon after there is the Raptor.
The F-150 Raptor is expected to come next year as a car of 2017 model year. The new Ford’s truck is planned to be under the Performance badge.
The novelty is equipped with the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost twin turbocharged engine, which works with the new ten-speed automatic gearbox. That transmission was specially developed by the General Motors for trucks.
Currently, there is no information about the output of the new powertrain but, the carmaker promises it to be more powerful even than the previous powertrain –the 6.2-liter V8, producing the output of 411 horsepower and the torque of 434 lb-ft.
Moreover, owing to using the lightweight materials, such as the aluminum body, the novelty has become lighter by 500 pounds than the previous version of Raptor.
Certainly, the novelty has been equipped with different technical features and improved technologies. The updated Terrain management system includes different driving modes: Normal, Mud, Rock, Baja, Weather and Street.
Both interior and exterior have been updated. Potential customers will notice new details, which marked the novelty in other trucks of the segment.
The new Ford’s truck comes on sale by the fall in 2016.
