2017 Ford Raptor F-150 is Ready to Rumble
The first racing action for this new Raptor F-150 comes in early February, when the truck heads to Parker, Arizona, for the first leg of the 2016 Best in the Desert series.
These are Ford 4.0L V6 trucks that are in a rear-engine setup with a manually-shifted automatic transaxle. They also feature over 20-inches of travel.
One crowd favorite was a replica of Dick Harding’s 1965 Ford Econoline Back Up Pick Up that was on display. The crazy backwards ride toured the U.S. from 1969 to 1971.
Look at that nose. Look at it! That is a nose that looks like it’ll beat you up if you don’t pay your bookie.
