2017 Ford Raptor: Five things you need to knowSix drive modes and a unique transfer case make the Raptor one unique truck for the dirt.
We spent some time behind the wheel of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor and here are five things you need to know. The new 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound feet of torc. This new smaller engine puts out more power than the previous generation 6.2 liter V8. Blind-spot monitoring and a 360-degree camera are part of a pricey $9,345 option package. Lane keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control are also available as part of the $1,950 Raptor Technology Package. The Transfer Case allows for 2-wheel drive, 4-wheel drive, or all-wheel-drive. The Raptor is the only truck on the market with this unique transfer case. An auto start stop function helps the Raptor get a 16 miles per gallon combined EPA fuel rating. It's not great but it represents a 23% gain from the first generation Raptor. There are six drive modes but all the fun is in Baja mode. The transmission goes into 4-wheel drive high with a 50/50 torque split and the top 5 gears of the 10-speed automatic transmission are locked out. So you can keep those revs high even when you let the truck shift on its own. Of course there is a whole lot more to this truck. So be sure to check out the full video review and deep dive into the sink three infotainment system right here on Road Show. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
