It was one of Ford launches expected to Detroit 2015 and finally became a reality. It is ready the next generation of the F-150 Raptor. Among its many firsts leaving the 6.2 naturally aspirated V8 for bi-turbo EcoBoost V6 with 411 hp mated to a ten-speed.
With the disposal end of 2016 Ford Motor Company brought out in Detroit to the new generation version more "bouncer" from his F-150 Raptor. It retains the brutal and aggressive look of previous editions the most powerful of the house Oval pick-up is back.
This worthy representative of the slogan "Bulit Tough" (manufactured to resist would be awkward translation but more about the concept) is completely renewed on the basis of the all-new F-150 presented in the edition 2014 the same room is say Detroit.
What about the aesthetics that images can not express better than me. Luce evil from all angles and follows the design patterns that shaped its predecessors ie we see again the name "Ford" XXL size stamped with letters on the grid but also in the gate of the box loads.
Complete the picture the two outputs sports exhaust position lights to mark the distance the height and width of the front and alloy wheels 17 "matte black case mounted on tires BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2. the optics are full LED knew something brand new F-150 standard a year ago already.
Inside we found a much calmer environment than leading outside. Moreover I think that watching more than one image will look like a F-150 "heap". But although it may seem there are some distinctive features compared to her sisters.
An example is the instrumental that takes a set of indicators that report turbo pressure-and delve into that-for example while another specific item Raptor are sports seats bearing the legend "Raptor" embroidered with threads blue on the sides of white leatherette. Aside from that and a couple of faux carbon fiber appliques itself is an Ford F-150 over the lot.
Where there is a pick-up more is in the mechanical section. While the previous generation was worth a bestial (another word no to describe) 6.2 V8 naturally aspirated 411 hp this new Raptor features a driver of EcoBoost V6 3.5 family with twin turbocharging which is able to match potential the V8.
But that does not stop surprising thing. It is now lighter than before. While the outgoing model declared before the balance 2750 kg this new generation of a stroke lower that number by 250 kg remaining at about 2500. Traction is comprehensive and automatic transmission -atentos- ten relations. Well read ten.
As in previous generations the chassis is designed to withstand the worst abuses and that is why Ford gave the new Raptor dampers designed by FOX Racing to tackle the first Raptor grow in size with a diameter that passes 6.3 to 7.6 cm which in turn have a higher route over the previous generation.
And to close the package to tackle difficult terrain brings a new Terrain Management System with six driving modes: Normal Street Weather Mud / Sand Rocks and Low. While there is no confirmed date yet it is highly probable that in late 2016 or early 2017 we see this new Raptor "instilling fear" in our streets fields and roads like its predecessor.
