Exciting News In Store For 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Truck Owners in Sacramento

Ford fans are excited for some of the latest unveilings of the 2017 Ford Raptor specs.  The Ford brand has been an American classic for many years, and building on F-150, Ford has focused on providing drivers with an exquisite off-road experience based on the design and handling of the F-150. Ford first introduced the Raptor in 2010, and the brand has since held off on developing the second generation of the vehicle. To keep up with new demands and an ever-changing market, the brand has since begun development, and has unveiled the new model, much to the delight of interested fans and enthusiasts alike.


Through the use of new principles, the 2017 F-150 Raptor has been developed to me much quicker and more powerful. Though still durable and weighty, it has been measured to be 500 pounds lighter than the previous car, which can provide drivers with an easier sense of handling on all types of road conditions. The new Raptor has been improved through the addition of the 3.5-liter V-6 engine. The option is much smaller in size and features less heft than previous engines, and it is all the more efficient for it. It is capable of taking the car up to 450 horsepower and up to 510 pound-feet of torque, a desirable improvement from the previous generation's specs.

This boost in power has resulted in a much more durable and reliable vehicle. The truck's towing capacity has been increased by an entire ton, and the fuel economy has been improved by 23 percent, which ultimately provides drivers with much more bang for their buck. Drivers who had the chance to take the vehicles out on the road had nothing but positive things to say about the handling. The acceleration was their favorite part, and drivers praised the system for its excellent rearview camera, which made it easier to park and handle the vehicle.
