What’s Up With The New Raptor?

By -


Now that it’s the first week of August, we’re starting to see more and more 2016 model year vehicles hit the dealerships. That means we are around a year away from the launch of the 2017 Ford Raptor. But what’s going on with the truck? Where is it at now?

The last we heard anything about the Raptor was that it completed its first round of desert testing. The mules were not final production-spec trucks, and still had many normal F-150 bits on it.

We’re obviously as anxious as you are to check out the new truck. Hopefully, they launch it early in 2016 for the 2017 model year instead of later in the year, but we haven’t heard anything to make us believe it either way.

While we’re scouring the web for more Raptor news, how about you catch up on what we know so far?

At the doctor’s office, they often say that no news is good news. Surely, the truck is still under development and on schedule for the 2017 launch. But like little children we are impatient and want the Raptor now!

We can’t wait to drive it. It’s going to be awesome! Let us know your thoughts in the forums!
