2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Arrives at Dealerships This Fall, Priced from $49,520

DEARBORN, Michigan — The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor high-performance off-road pickup will begin arriving at Ford dealerships this fall, priced from $49,520, including a destination charge of $1,195.

That's the starting price for the SuperCab model. The longer-wheelbase SuperCrew version of the 2017 Raptor is priced from $52,505, including the destination fee.

The 2017 F-150 Raptor is powered by Ford's new second-generation 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine which, in the standard 2017 F-150, puts out 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.

Although there have been reports that the version in the Raptor could produce considerably more power, a Ford spokesman told Edmunds that "any numbers you see are just speculation" and that official figures have not yet been released.

The new EcoBoost V6 comes mated to an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission that features wide-spaced gearing and three overdrive gears, resulting in maximum fuel economy at highway speeds while maintaining optimal power and towing capacity.

An all-new four-wheel-drive transfer case manages power distribution between the front and rear wheels with the help of an innovative Terrain Management System that offers selectable modes for Normal, Street (performance), Weather (for snow and ice), Mud and Sand, Baja (for high speeds in the desert) and the slow-crawl Rock mode.

Off-road capability is further enhanced by a performance suspension that features Fox Racing Shox with the latest internal bypass technology that helps prevent bottoming out in rough terrain.

The 2017 F-150 Raptor also comes equipped with a dual-exhaust system and standard 17-inch wheels shod with BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO2 off-road tires.

A host of options will be available, including a luxury package and a technology package, as well as such items as Pro trailer backup assist, a power sliding rear window, LED cargo bed lights, remote start and auto-dimming and heated side mirrors.

Edmunds says: Shoppers in the market for some off-road muscle will want to check out the 2017 F-150 raptor when it begins arriving at Ford dealerships later this year.
