Ford F-150 Raptor Has Already Proven Itself in Series of Tests
We have told you a lot about the Ford F-150 truck. We have told you about its versatility, power, flexibility and numerous more. And now America's number one truck has even more to demonstrate.
Ford Performance engineers are now testing prototypes of the latest F-150 Raptor, which is the toughest, smartest and most flexible Raptor created up to date. The vehicle can conquer even tougher hills, can go through ruts and bumps and in general can achieve much more than the previous model. The early prototype model combines parts from the 2017 Raptor and the 2015 F-150 and is climbing two track trails in Northern Michigan, where actually the team is testing the truck and its behavior on the road and off the road.
2017 F-150 Raptor now comes with better ground clearance and is geared with the 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox with custom internal bypass system. The suspension system also had its attention and now it also offers some improvements, mainly on stability and control. And the redesigned All-Wheel-Drive system further improves Raptor's trail performance. The vehicle's transfer case combines the best attributes of clutch-driven, on-demand all-wheel drive with drurable mechanical-locking four-wheel drive system.
And the best news is that the time you can test the vehicle by yourself is not that far ahead: it comes in Fall of 2016.
