Planet Ford Loves Ford F-150 Raptor: Toughest, Smartest Truck

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is as smart as it is tough and capable.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is as smart as it is tough and capable.

At Randall Reed’s Planet Ford in Humble, we have always loved the Ford F-150 Raptor. What is not to love about it. Well now, there is even more! Check out Ford’s toughest, smartest, and most capable truck for the ultimate off-road experience.

This is one touch vehicle! The all-new, high-strength steel frame is unique to Ford’s F-150 Raptor. The Ford truck’s high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body help save more than 500 pounds of weight for improved performance and capability.

It has brains, too! The F-150 Raptor is powered by a new, high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine with more horsepower and torque than current Raptor’s 411-horsepower, 434-lb.-ft. 6.2-liter V8; all-new 10-speed transmission; advanced LED lighting, and camera technology for improved visibility day or night.

Don’t worry, this is one of the most capable trucks out there, to! Now redesigned, it features larger FOX Racing Shox with more suspension travel. The all-new terrain management technology helps the F-150 Raptor tackle America’s toughest trails – from dry washes in the Mojave Desert to Moab’s rocky terrain to Texas mud, Nevada sand and Colorado snow.

The new Raptor features calibration changes to its powertrain, driveline, traction control, ABS and AdvanceTrac stability control for optimal performance. There are six preset modes for the truck depending on terrain and driving conditions:

  • Normal mode for everyday driving
  • Street mode for higher-performance, on-road driving
  • Weather mode for rain, snow or ice
  • Mud and sand mode for muddy and sandy trails and terrain
  • Baja mode for high-speed desert running
  • Rock mode for low-speed rock crawling

Creature Comforts

F-150 Raptor€'s interior design is about creating a comfortable place for the driver and passengers.

The Raptor was created to be comfortable place for the driver and passengers whether on a family adventure or off-road excursion.

While the exterior of the F-150 Raptor is designed to project an image, the interior of the truck is about creating a comfortable place for driver and passengers to enjoy their time on- and off-road.

So when can you get it at Planet Ford on Hwy. 59 (serving Houston, Kingwood, Atascocita, Conroe, Katy and more)? Ford says it will be rolling into dealership in the Fall of 2016. Until then, don’t worry, we have the all-new F-150, Super Duty, Expedition, Explorer and other amazing Fords — new and used — from which you can choose. Log onto!
