Ford finally announces official ratings for the 2017 F-150 Raptor image

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has been rated at 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque thanks to its new 3.5-liter biturbo EcoBoost V6 engine.

While a truck doesn’t necessarily get great fuel economy ratings – and a high performance one isn’t going to produce a miracle, the mileage ratings are expected to reach 15 miles per gallon city, 18 mpg highway, and 16 mpg – which is at least better than what the previous generation delivered: 12/16/13 mpg. The Raptor has been showcased since back during the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, and Ford’s updated 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine is available under the hood. That engine is encountered across the board at Ford and even serves as the basis of the evolution for the Ford GT supercar.

The Raptor does get its own performance tweaks – full dual exhausts, increased turbo boost, and oil-cooled pistons. The new Raptor also gets the new 10-speed automatic transmission and the truck even comes with a start / stop functionality. The Raptor – as previously described by Ford – has numerous off-road features, including a ‘Baja’ setting for high-speed off-roading, Fox shock absorbers, and additional protection all around. Allegedly, the Raptor will kick off from $49,520 in SuperCab guise and $52,505 in SuperCrew form. Ford has so far only confirmed it will be priced at the base below $50k.
