Feeling rapt with anticipation for the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor? Wait no longer. Ford is beginning production on the brand new 2017 Raptor this month, to the delight of Raptor enthusiasts nationwide. Reports reveal that the lists of orders are already long, and dealerships are preparing to sell out quickly. Representatives for the Blue Oval say that the Raptor Build and Price configurator has already received nearly 100,000 hits after its first 10 days, a record for Ford. Data from the configurator shows that the most popular options include the SuperCrew (91 percent), Luxury Group (90 percent), and the Technology Package (77 percent). As Rob Rosenbach, an F-150 brand manager reported to Jason Siu of AutoGuide.com, "Site traffic on the Raptor pages is currently more than five times our other performance vehicle lines and dealer demand is far ahead of expectations." Watch the Raptor in action in the video below:
The high level of interest isn't unwarranted. The 2017 Raptor shines with its high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy, which marries durability with agility. Its frame is also high-strength boxed steel. Additionally, the Raptor sports an all-new, twin-turbo DOHC 24-valve, high-output 3.5L EcoBoost with direct fuel injection, as well as a 10-speed automatic transmission with manual-shifting mode. Off-roaders will especially appreciate the new Terrain Management System, which offers six preset modes to easily adapt the truck for any driving environment - street, Baja, mud, sand, and more. Performance on and off the streets is made possible with class-exclusive beadlock-capable wheels.
