2017 F-150 Raptor Power Numbers ReleasedLast Updated September 30, 2016
Since its inception in 2010, the Ford F-150 Raptor is no doubt a beast when it comes to conquering the road less traveled. Originally offered with the dated 310 horsepower 5.4L 3V V8 engine in 2010, you could say that this truck has come a long way in the power output department. The all-new 2017 F-150 Raptor is confirmed by Ford to boast 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque out of the newly re-engineered 3.5-liter twin-turbo high-output EcoBoost V6 engine!
You heard that right! A twin-turbocharged six cylinder engine will propel the aluminum-bodied 2017 Raptor up and over any terrain that your mind can comprehend. The new Raptor is up to 500 pounds lighter than the outgoing model and delivers a 21% improved average torque-to-weight ratio along with a boost of combined fuel economy by 23% to 15 mpg city and 18 mpg highway. But seriously, who cares about gas mileage when you're busy jumping sand dunes!
Another new factor that many have been talking about for the 2017 Raptor is the all-new 10-speed automatic transmission. Ford explains that the broad torque curve of this EcoBoost engine and the Raptor’s new adaptive shift algorithms will ensure that you’re in the right gear at the right time to get the maximum potential out of your 2017 Raptor.
To put it simply, if you take the weight savings of over 500 pounds, combined with the +39 horsepower and +76 lb.-ft. of torque, this new 2017 Raptor will outperform its older brother in essentially every way. Yes, it’s going to be that awesome.
