Ford Bringing Back 6.2L V8 to 2017 Raptor!
Rejoice, Ford Raptor fans! Today at the 2015 New York International Auto Show, Ford finally decided to cave and give the fans what they want; a V8-powered 2017 Raptor! Woohoo!
For so many years, a full-size truck was just a (gas) V8, a passenger compartment, and a bed. It was a simple, steel tool used for work. Now, we have aluminum F-150s with turbocharged V6s and Ram 1500s packing diesel engines. Like the FCA group’s truck, the 2016 Nissan Titan XD will pack an oil-burner under its hood.
Do you want a 2016 Ford GT and actually have the means to purchase it? Well, don’t go rushing off and putting a deposit down at a dealership yet, because Ford is still working on the details of who will get one of the new carbon fiber supercars.
The new Ford Raptor is insane. With Ford’s new retuned 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 pumping out more than 400 horsepower, the new Raptor is sure to be a handful. But what if Ford didn’t stop there?
