QUESTION OF THE WEEK Which F-150 Raptor – 2014 or 2017?

By -


While Ford Motor Company hasn’t offered up all of the vital details on the 2017 Ford SVT Raptor F-150, we know enough of the basics to peak our interest.

We know that the next Raptor will have a super tuned 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with around 450 horsepower, a 10-speed automatic transmission, a new ultra-high tech four wheel drive system and the same aluminum body panels of the new generation F-150 lineup. Also, we know that the 2017 F-150 Raptor will have unique body bits to make for one great looking and mean looking high performance off-road truck.


However, there are critics who would have rather not seen a new V6, the new 10-speed transmission, the new four wheel drive system or the aluminum body panels on the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. Some folks like the look, but they would prefer a V8 and a proven transmission.

Others are concerned that the aluminum body panels will be more likely to dent up when playing in the mud or woods. These people insist that they would rather buy the previous generation Raptor over the new one, and that brings us to our Question of the Week.

Which Ford F-150 Raptor would you rather buy – the 2014 models or the upcoming 2017 models? Click here to head into the forum to tell us what you think!
