Caught! 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Nearly Nude!

Best Look Yet At Production-Bound Model

Oct 8, 2015

The original 2010 model was one of the most popular and anticipated new trucks to come along in several decades. From the looks of things, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor looks to follow in its predecessor’s footsteps. With even beefier off-road suspension, a lightweight aluminum body, and a new high-output EcoBoost twin-turbo V-6 engine, the new Raptor promises to top the already-formidable capabilities of its predecessor in nearly every category.
The overall look and styling of the Raptor is not a great surprise after the production-intent concept was shown at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. Thankfully, by the looks of these late-stage test mules, little has changed between the show car and the production model. The signature block-letter “FORD” grille remains, and the dual-outlet rear exhaust shown on the concept is intact.

In terms of the powertrain, we know it will have a 10-speed automatic transmission, presumably the unit co-developed with General Motors. Exact specs on the H.O. EcoBoost have yet to be official announced, but we’re expecting a bump over the outgoing 6.2L SOHC V-8, which has a rating of 411 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque. As with the current model, the 2017 will be offered in SuperCrew and SuperCab (extended) configurations. We’re still a long ways out from a price announcement, but we’re fairly confident the starting price will be well above $50,000.
