Brand New 2017 Ford Raptor Race Truck Comes Factory Prepared

John Gilbert

For Ford’s 2017 Raptor lineup there’s a Raptor model built to suit everyone’s needs. For the fuel-mileage conscious there’s the Raptor’s standard equipment Auto-Stop-Start feature where the engine kills, saving gas at a red light, and then instantly fires back up as the gas pedal is depressed for a green light.

In the Raptor’s off-road ready street trim, the truck is available in two or four door bodystyles, and for the folks enthused about venturing into off-road racing there’s the new factory prepared race-ready Raptor available as a two door only.

The Raptor race truck will leverage Raptor’s production platform including its all-new high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and 10-speed transmission, along with torque-on-demand transfer case.

Jamal Hameedi, chief engineer, at Ford Performance stated, “The all-new Raptor has the DNA of a Baja race truck, with a purpose-built engine, chassis and suspension that enables it to travel fast over challenging desert landscapes or crawl over rocky terrain.”

Putting the all-new Raptor through this grueling stretch of races will help demonstrate how a truck born in the desert is even more prepared to take on the very toughest of terrain.
