2017 Ford Raptor in Action! (with video)



On Friday Ford released pictures and videos of the 2017 Ford Raptor undergoing stress testing in the wilderness of Northern Michigan.

While still missing official specs, Ford is saying that the 2017 Raptor has higher ground clearance then the outgoing truck, has more suspension travel and most certainly features more power.

“The all-new Ford Raptor will be more capable than the previous Raptor, including improved wheel travel and ground clearance,” said Ford Truck PR man Mike Levine.

Along with the new visuals Ford did say that the 2017 Raptor will have new Fox racing shocks with internal bypass to adjust and stiffen suspension off road, and a brand nee 4WD transfer case in the back.

good move to make it more capable off-road which is just what it needs to stay ahead of the competition especially as this is a new generation

Indeed. Seems they gave it more 'wheeling' capability then out and out pre-running... the first gen was a bit of a 1 trick pony...

Hopefully they made it more durable with landing from jumps, just not anything too crazy, since I know some first generation owners tried and ended with bad results.

^ Indeed.

Less weight = not as hard fall. Now we just need to see or even hear feedback of the end result of going through it.

Would the 4WD transfer case installed in the back help with these jumps?

Probably a move they had to go though with due to the power changes from the last raptor to this one.
