2017 Ford F-150 RaptorA 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew is on its way to River View Ford for Oswego and Naperville, IL drivers. Encompassing style and power, the 2017 F-150 Raptor SuperCrew will impress drivers and set high standards for a truck in its segment. We will be able to see the new model at upcoming auto shows, starting with the Toronto Auto Show February 12 to the 22. Keep reading to learn more about what we know so far about the SuperCrew model for the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.

Performance

The new Raptor will be outfitted with a 3.5L EcoBoost tech infused V6 engine with twin turbocharged and direct fuel injection power. This engine and a revised body material make-up will help the Raptor drop 500 pounds from previous models, but it will still be tough enough to handle any job it gets thrown. The previous engine was rated with 411 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque, but we can expect a 2017 Raptor to fly past these numbers significantly. It is also expected to have a 10-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system.

Models are likely to come with larger FOX Racing Shox, 17-inch BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO2 tires, which are exclusive for the Raptor, and a terrain power distribution system that allows for daily driving, a street performance mode, severe weather mode, mud or sand trail mode, desert-geared mode, or rock crawling.

Unique Exterior Features

The Raptor comes with a signature designed grille, dual exhaust system, the option for LED lighting, available all-around truck view camera, and the choice to add a new tailgate.

Interior

It will be easy for Oswego and Naperville drivers to comfortably relax in the Raptor. The new model is aimed towards passenger comfort and versatile cargo carrying. Choosing the SuperCrew model will allow you to carry passengers and cargo in the cabin at the same time thanks to its expanded cabin and truck bed. It helps that the vehicle has grown to 145 inches. Drivers can also choose the SuperCab for a 133-inch wheelbase, which is considered the sport model.
