2018 Ford Raptor

Sudden, Spectacular and Surprising

High-Performance Off-Road pickup with a Factory Warranty?

Developed by Ford's Special Vehicle Team, it's survived both the Baja 100 desert race to become he a certified critical and commercial success, even if many a Raptor never set a wheel off-road. The new, lighter F-150 platform is set to underpin Ford's exurban pre-runner.

Lighter, Faster, Stronger

The Raptor's new boxed steel frame is reinforced from the normal F-150's and comes in two sizes: the sportier 133-inch-wheelbase SuperCab and the roomier 145-inch SuperCrew. Despite the beefier frame, the new truck's aluminum body help trim 500 pounds from its predecessor's curb weight. We strongly favor Ford's new Raptor Diet.

Power and Handling

When Rugged meets Refinement

The F-150 Raptor sports 3.0' FOX Racing Shox with custom internal bypass technology, delivery 13" of front and 14" of rear suspension travel. This technology allows for variable damping rates based on wheel travel, which provides great off-road performance and a smooth ride on-road.

Power and Distribution

No longer is there a big, iron-block V-8 under the hood, which helps save some weight. The 2017 Raptor is EcoBoost only and the first recipient of a second-generation 3.5-liter V-6 with twin turbochargers and direct fuel injection. The high-powered EcoBoost engines Ford develops for sports-car racing helped influence the product V-6's improvements, including a new aluminum block and updates to the fuel system, cylinder heads, and internals. To help improve airflow, the high-output engine exhales through a true dual-exhaust system with twin outlets notched in the rear bumper.
