The new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is undisputed, environment a new customary with the horsepower and torque

Posted on 08. Oct, 2016 by in Ford Canada

Details surrounding a 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor trickled out all year long, with information about a all-new 10-speed transmission, turf modes, and disdainful new rubber teasing us like a smell of turkey and all a fixings before Thanksgiving cooking .

But Raptor fans are a bit of a opposite breed. They’re a kind of people who, as kids, flip over a ball label of their favorite player, fervent to review a stats good before Opening Day.

The proclamation of Raptors’ horsepower and torque ratings was hotly anticipated, as enthusiasts waited (im)patiently, like kids do for Christmas morning, usually means to assume about a truck’s capability. With a second-generation 3.5-litre EcoBoost engine interconnected with a all-new 10-speed transmission, a sky was a limit.

Finally a numbers are in and they DO NOT disappoint.

An grand 450 horsepower that also comes with an combined bonus: softened fuel economy. The high outlay of a new 3.5L EcoBoost engine combines with a 10-speed delivery and a rebate of weight by 225 kilograms (500 pounds) to outcome in fuel-savings of 21%!

While that horsepower is critical to have (and fun to use), a 2017 Raptor also boasts a torque boost of 76 lb-ft over prior models.

The all-new 10-speed delivery creates certain drivers get a many from 510 lb-ft of torque, mixing with a “torque-on-demand” send box and a sparkling Terrain Management system to broach a opening we design from a Raptor, no matter a situation.

When Ford Performance engineering administrator Matt Tranter says “Raptor was designed to be a no-compromise, off-road opening machine,” we can see it in each touch, each refinement, and each fact of a 2017 F-150 Raptor. It is distinct any lorry on (or off) a road, a finely tuned appurtenance that positively draws (or rather, carves) a line in a sand.
