The 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor

Not Your Average F-150

In an ever-evolving industry, Vehicle Manufactures need to stay ahead of the curve by bringing new and fresh ideas to consumers, Ford is no exception. The Ford Raptor has proven to be one of Fords most successful vehicles. A truck designed by true off-road professionals and made for genuine off-road enthusiasts. With more sophisticated off-road equipment and a considerably widened aluminum body the 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor has a unique and purposeful appearance.

Mild to Wild

Under the 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor’s hood is a High-Output 3.5L V6 Ecoboost engine, a unique twin-turbo, inter-cooled DOHC 24-Valve with port fuel and direct inject system. Paired with a 10-Speed automatic transmission and steering wheel paddle shifters. A smaller engine does not always mean smaller performance. Its older siblings, although equipped with a 6.2L V8, are left in the dust when compared to the new 3.5L system. It produces an outstanding 450 horsepower and 510 ft-lbs of torque, leaving the driver and any spectators speechless. With 3″ FOX Racing Shox and custom internal bypass technology, you’ll be in awe at the smooth ride.

Aggressive Style for an Aggressive Terrain

When you see a Ford Raptor barreling towards you, you’ll want to step aside, and prepare for a beautiful sight. Ford kept true to the previous generation of Raptors with the unique “FORD” block letter grille and marker lights. F-150 Raptors come fitted with 17″ cast aluminum glossy machined face wheels along with magnetic-painted pockets or optional 17″ forged aluminum bead-lock wheel. These stylish wheels are wrapped into massive 315/70 R17 BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A K02 Tires! As you take a walk around the exterior, examine the high level of detail put into this clever girl. Take notice of the front and rear performance bumpers with accent coloring. The flared front fenders, flared pickup box outers and styled hood, equipped with air extractors. Friend stuck? Utilize the two front or two rear tow hooks! Bottomed out? Don’t worry, the heavy-duty skid plates are tasked with protecting the front end and engine!

Wait, This isn’t a Maserati?!

Climb into the cockpit of this off-road master, and be suddenly confused. Dual toned, comfortable leather seats with “Raptor” elegantly etched into the backs, subtle fade-to-off interior lighting, and a leather-wrapped sporty steering wheel with thumb pads and paddle shifters. While you adjust your 8-way power seat for comfort, take a moment to appreciate the level of detail. Ford wants happy drivers, and what makes happy drivers? Comfort and capability. To name just a few features (we don’t want other off-road vehicles being jealous), your new Raptor could have Heated and Air Conditioned seats, backup sensors, an 8″ entertainment screen, along with intelligent access thanks to a push-button start and a 4.2″ Productivity screen.

Pure Dumb Fun

The 2018 Raptor has to be in the top 5 most fun trucks to drive on the road today. Its response is stellar, acceleration throws you, safely, back into the seat, it reaches the speeds necessary in any situation, and is just pure dumb fun. It’s the kind of truck that an executive with an important business meeting in the middle of the thick forest would be proud to be driven in. That’s right, move over Bentley, the Blue Collar workers have their own chariot!
