Ford’s new F-150 Raptor pickup: Badder just got bigger
Some new features of interest to farmer drivers
By Farms.com Media
The new F-150 Raptor goes on sale this fall, and this beast of a pickup truck has some features that Ford says will be of special interest to commercial farmers.
The SuperCrew model adds room for passengers and gear. An enhanced suspension, use of advanced materials, all-new EcoBoost engine technology -- plus smart engineering saves up to 500 pounds, for improved power-to-weight ratio for even better off-road agility than the previous F-150 Raptor.
And the new auto-start/stop on EcoBoost saves fuel and contributes to a reduction in CO2 emissions due to decreased idle times.
Also, segment-exclusive redesigned beadlock-capable wheels help increase grip in low-traction conditions.
The new Raptor will be built at Ford’s Dearborn Truck Plant. More details at Ford.com.
