Ford has introduced the 2017 F-150 Raptor SuperCrew.
Set to debut at the North American International Auto Show later today, the truck is essentially a crew cab variant of the 2017 F-150 Raptor that debuted at last year's show. As a result, the truck's aggressive styling carries over and includes a rugged front bumper, a mesh grille, and extended fender flares. The truck also has a dual exhaust system and 17-inch alloy wheels with BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires.
The interior echoes the standard model but rear seat passengers gain additional legroom as well as improved entry and egress thanks to the larger rear doors.
A 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine resides under the hood and produces more than 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque. The engine is connected to an all-new ten-speed automatic transmission and a four-wheel drive system with a torque-on-demand transfer case.
Speaking four-wheel drive, the F-150 Raptor has a new Terrain Management System with six different modes including:
- Normal mode for everyday driving
- Street mode for higher-performance, on-road driving
- Weather mode for rain, snow or ice
- Mud and sand mode for muddy and sandy trails and terrain
- Baja mode for high-speed desert running and
- Rock mode for low-speed rock crawling
Besides the aforementioned changes, the truck has an off-road focused suspension with FOX Racing Shox. Ford declined to elaborate but noted the new truck has more suspension travel than the outgoing F-150 Raptor.
The 2017 F-150 Raptor SuperCrew will go on sale this fall and pricing will be announced closer to launch.
