The North American based Ford carmaker has recently unveiled the race-focused 2017 F-150 Raptor, the model that will compete in the “Best in the Desert off-road racing series.”
The race truck is based on the standard 2017 Ford F-150, the company`s most outstanding truck. Concerning the chassis, the Raptor will feature the same aluminum-alloy frame, along with high-strength steel frame, which will make it perfect for off-road terrain.
More than that, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Race Truck is fully optimized for the race series, the model sporting three-inch-diameter external-bypass front and rear Fox Racing Sox, along with front and rear springs which raise the ride height, along with custom roll cage and a few more.
The cabin is also adorned with the latest technological goodies, like Lowrance GPS, RacePak digital dashboard with data logger, adding sports items, like ED light bars, MasterCraft seats with five-point harness safety belts, window nets, and racing fuel cell.
Under the hood, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Race Truck is powered by the same 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, which delivers 411 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque, mated to a ten-speed transmission. The most impressing thing was that the Raptor Race Truck was built from zero and was transformed into a real killer machine for off-road terrain.
