2017 Ford Raptor

The 2017 Ford Raptor uses an upgraded “high output” version of Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6. The engine produces 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. It’s mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission, but what does it all mean for a 0-60 MPH acceleration?

TFLtruck is first to bring you a real-world acceleration test of the all-new Raptor at sea level (near San Diego, CA). What is the best way to launch it? How does it sound at full boil? How does it handle the twisty canyons of California? We bring the detailed interview, approach/breakover/departure angles, and the rest of the specifications. You can get all this and more in this video.

Part 2 of 2: 2017 Raptor rock crawl and high-speed desert run is now published. Check it out!
