2017 Ford F-150 RaptorThe 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is the smartest and toughest.

It’s also the most capable ever! Did you know that it racked up 2481 miles of sanctioned off-road racing in the 2016 Best in the Desert season and SCORE Baja 1000. No wonder it’s America’s Truck Leader!

This race truck logged over one hundred hours of off road competition. It was driven through some of the toughest terrain one could imagine. It completed the season having used only one factory stock 3.5-liter high output EcoBoost V6 engine. In the middle of the season, Ford Performance engineers swapped out the 10-speed transmission for retrofitting and an evaluation.

“We didn’t slap our name on a trophy truck like other manufacturers do,” said Brian Bell, Ford Raptor marketing manager. “We ran a stock truck with full factory air conditioning, factory glass, AM/FM SIRIUS/XM satellite radio, the same engine and advanced off-road drive-train and suspension that you’ll soon see at your Ford dealer.”

After that, the truck was put on display at the 2017 North American International Auto Show at the end of January. All of the information that was gathered by Ford engineers will help to develop the next generations of Ford trucks. How awesome is this?
