Recently, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor endured over a 1,000 miles of testing in the desert. Now, the prototype finds itself in Northern Michigan, climbing trails and trekking through deep water, in another series of tests designed to push the Raptor’s capability.
The video below shows the prototype in action.
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has better ground clearance than it’s predecessor with enhanced 3 inch FOX Racing Shox, featuring an internal bypass system.
A second video outlines the technology.
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor carries a torque-on-demand transfer case, improving the truck’s trail presence and performance.
The new transfer case, which controls power distribution between the front and rear wheels, combines the best attributes of clutch-driven, all-wheel drive with mechanical-locking four-wheel drive.
Similar to the 2015 Ford F-150, the new Raptor is subject to a weight reduction and upgraded high-strength steel frame.
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will be built at the Dearborn Truck Plant and go on sale Fall 2016.
