Was always fascinated by the increase in power and torque, being one thing I want to hear from people that had the chance of owning the original Raptor and pushed it hard enough to know what it was all about.

Quote:
Formidable in its own right, this new EcoBoost V6 gives the lighter 2017 Raptor a 16 percent better power-to-weight ratio and a 23 percent better torque-to-weight ratio. Collectively, those enhancements help Fordís ultra-pickup officially sprint from 0-60 mph in less than 6.0 seconds for the first time.

Road And Track : The GT-R For Off-Roading ?!

New Ford Raptor Review - 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor First Drive

Quote:
Think of it as an off-road Nissan GT-R—a truck that, like today's high-end performance coupes, offers unprecedented performance by doing most of the thinking for you.

The beauty of all of this is when you start to look at the bigger automotive landscape you'll start to see that Ford is ahead of its time. Ahead of its time when it comes to high performance vehicles that aren't a sedan or coupe, it's a TRUCK. Now we're seeing more and more high performance SUV's come out.

See the thing I like about Ford performance trucks is that they are super versatile. Not just straight line speed, but they can do gosh darn anything you throw at it. We really don't have any other pickup trucks like this out here.

Ford's Ecoboost Raptor was ahead of it's time even for the rest of Ford's pickup lineup. The 10-speed automatic transmission developed in tandem with General Motors that we see in the Ecoboost is going to be the in the newly redesigned 2018 Ford F-150.

The great part is it'll be awesome for efficiency and it'll be able to hold the power and put it down. It comes in a complete perfect package to the point where you really have nothing else to do to it. Any other changes to it are just to make it fine tuned to your preferences and styling.

Here's a long term Raptor review from trucktrend, though it seems like this article is in the early stages of testing. But they plan to drive it around for a whole year, so more reviews are sure to come from them.

Looks like FourWheeler is doing something similar with their own long term Raptor test. They had to drive from Michigan back to Southern California and they were more than happy to do so.
