Is the 2017 Ford Raptor worth the money?

The second generation of the Ford F-150 Raptor has thoroughly impressed critics and consumers with its incredible capability. But, is the 2017 Ford F-150 worth all of that money? Buyers can compare the price of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor to a fully spec’d truck. When you think about the capability of the Raptor, and you compare it to a luxury full-sized truck trim, the Raptor looks like a pretty good deal!

The Ford F-150 Raptor isn’t your standard full-size pickup truck. At first glance, it’s easy to see why the Raptor is worth so much. The new Ford Raptor features a twin-turbo 3.5-litre EcoBoost that actually delivers more power than the old V8 — much to the delight of prospective buyers. The 2017 Raptor puts out an impressive 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. Its new EcoBoost engine is paired with the all-new 10-speed automatic transmission.

While you won’t have any trouble venturing a little off the beaten path with an F-150, you can go a lot further with the Raptor.

The Raptor has pretty much all of the safety features of a luxury-spec’d truck. So, you won’t be missing out on much that’s available on the Platinum or King Ranch models.

When it comes to traveling off-road, the Raptor does it better than anyone else. You can control terrain modes right from the steering wheel. Towing features? Yeah, that Raptor has those. The Raptor can actually learn about the trailer you’re towing. You can steer the Raptor and its trailer using a Trailer Backup dial inside the cabin.

With the 2017 Raptor, you can get a lot of the luxury features found in similarly priced trucks, as well as the best off-roading features on the market today. We can spout off more specs and details, but the only way to really experience the Raptor is at Sherwood Ford!
