How Impressive is the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor?

We could spend hours upon hours upon hours telling you how impressive, tough, rugged, dependable, versatile and fun to drive the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is, but we figured it’d be easier to just let you hear about it straight from the mouths of the judges.

“The all-new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is the truck equivalent of an amusement park thrill ride. Compared to its predecessor, which also had a very commanding stance, the new Raptor has more ground clearance and a significantly wider track that makes it look incredibly aggressive. The excitement continues when you fire up the high-output twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and stab the throttle.” – Ken Brubaker, FOUR WHEELER editor.
