The engineers at Ford Performance were testing the prototype of the all new F-150 Raptor for 2017. It will be the toughest, smartest, and most capable Raptor ever. This prototype has parts from the 2015 F-150 and the new 2017 Ford Raptor, and climbs up the tight two track trails in Michigan.
The 2017 model, will have better ground clearance and comes standard with new 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox with custom internal bypass technology. The shock absorption technology works to damp and stiffen suspension travel over rough terrain.The new Ford Raptor will also have an all new four-wheel-drive, torque on demand transfer case which further improves the Raptor’s trail performance. This new transfer case manages the power distribution between the front and rear wheels, combining the best attributes of clutch-driven, on-demand all-wheel drive with durable, mechanical-locking four wheel drive.
This new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will be available for test drives in the Fall of 2016.
