Introducing the New 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor
Just in time for Christmas, Ford unveiled the brand new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. Its fresh debut puts all rumours and speculations about its design and performance to rest with one glance. The Raptor’s body is engineered from high-strength military-grade aluminum alloy, making it 500 pounds lighter than the F-150 trucks that came before. A reinforced steel frame compliments the aluminum, and you’re left with a truck that’s up for anything. While you might not be able to conceal this beauty in festive wrapping paper, the new F-150 Raptor will make an excellent addition to any driveway in Truro, Nova Scotia this holiday season.
Get Off the Road in Nova Scotia
For the adventurer in your life, or the truck enthusiast who loves a good off-roading session, the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor possesses all of the qualities to make the perfect day happen. Now featuring better running clearance than the first-generation Raptor, the latest model includes an all-new four-wheel drive torque-on-demand transfer case. With this new special feature, you get only the best attributes of on-demand four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Nova Scotia is full of trails that turn into the perfect playground for off-road enthusiasts. Who’s to say you’ll have to wait until the warmer weather to show off your new truck? The available bead-lock capable wheels on the new 2017 Raptor give you the best on and off-roading experiences--be it on a clean asphalt surface or bounding through a snowy trail. For maximum traction off-road, you can even deflate them while still enjoying the grip and performance they promise. Thanks to its elevated height, the Raptor won’t get stuck in deep snowbanks or slush buildup. Even if you choose not to opt for this package, with the right set of winter tires, Truro will be your very own winter wonderland in no time.
Performance That Stands Out
As if the exterior and interior design elements weren’t enough, the performance on the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is seriously impressive. Equipped with a twin-turbo intercooled DOHC 24-valve high-output 3.5L EcoBoost® with direct fuel injection, the new Raptor produces up to 450 HP and 501 lb-ft. of torque. Phew! With seating for up to six, the new Raptor offers plenty of room for your friends and family. Besides its amazing off-road capabilities, the 2017 Raptor is also a significant family vehicle for those living in Nova Scotia. Whether you plan on using your Raptor for hauling materials to and from your job site or simply enjoy the versatile nature of a tough truck, the new Raptor is for everyone. Plus, in a province where snow, rain and stormy weather are no strangers, it’s great to have a vehicle that can combat it all, while keeping you and your family (and even the dog) safe, comfortable and happy.
