Engine Power and Performance
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor comes with an EcoBoost engine that is a 3.5-liter V6. It is a second-generation EcoBoost engine with twin turbochargers and direct fuel injection. According to Ford, this engine is similar to the ones used in most of Ford’s sports cars. There is a new aluminum block and the fuel system has been updated along with the cylinder heads to improve airflow. In addition, there is a true dual-exhaust system with twin outlets in the rear bumper to improve airflow to the engine. Note that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will be the first vehicle to use Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission. Previously, the F-150 was equipped with a 6.2 V8 engine, but now, its turbo version is said to be more efficient, while still producing up to 450 to 500 horsepower.
