There’s is no written rule or law that says a pickup truck can’t provide an exhilarating driving experience. You don’t need a sports car to have a blast through your driving experience, and that’s why Ford created the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. The Raptor is a pickup unlike any other, capable of providing thrills both on the road and off it.
If you’d like to take it for a spin near the Jacksonville NC area, just contact us at Sanders Ford. We would be happy to check on its availability for a test drive. Otherwise, if you’d just like to learn more about it, you can continue reading about some more of the details down below. As you’ll see, there’s a lot to get excited about.
Compared to the first generation Raptor, the 2017 model is a significant improvement. For example, it has a 21% better torque-to-weight ratio thanks to its 510 lb-ft of torque paired with 450 horsepower coming from a 3.5-liter engine. Working alongside that engine is an all-new 10-speed transmission.
Of course, power alone isn’t enough to go off-road. That’s why you’ll find 6 terrain modes to help you traverse whatever path or trail you head out on, as you can choose between Normal, Sport, Weather, Mud/Sand, Rock Crawl and Baja (designed for high-speed desert runnings). On top of that, there are 3.0-inch Fox Racing Shox to help retain ride comfort and control.
Last but not least, there is the design of the truck, and there’s no denying that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor looks incredible. But to get a full sense of its design appeal, you’ll have to come check it out here in Jacksonville NC. Let us know how we can help at Sanders Ford.
