2017 Ford SVT Raptor: Does It Live Up To The Legend?

If there's one thing we know, performance enthusiasts love their V8 engines. If you've been following the tale of the beastly 2017 Ford SVT Raptor, you might have noticed that it trades that eight-cylinder power for a V6. If you're as big enthusiasts as we are, you might have wondered (as we did) whether it would live up to the previous gen.

If the most recent video put out by Ford Performance is any indication, the 2017 Raptor is more than up to the task. Redesigned from the ground up with a lighter frame, new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, and some pretty beastly shocks and suspension, the new truck makes its dune-shredding capabilities look nigh-on effortless. Thanks to the rumored 450 horsepower of the engine, we project this new Raptor will be quite the hit.

If the SVT Raptor tickles your fancy, you've got only a few months more to wait. It arrives in dealerships later this autumn, and promises a thrilling experience on road and off. Contact our Ford dealership in Buckeye, AZ and we'll let you know when it arrives.
