The previous-gen Raptor was a covetous blend of big horsepower and big suspension, creating an unbeatable package for off-roading mayhem.

The new one looks to be even more capable, with bigger suspension offering even more travel than before.

Plus, thanks to the new F-150's aluminum construction, it's a whopping 500 pounds lighter than before.

On the interior side, not a lot has changed from the standard F-150.
