The 2017 Ford Raptor also made a big engine switch from a hefty V8 to a modern EcoBoost with a second-generation 3.5-liter V6 with twin turbochargers and direct fuel injection. Don’t worry – Ford says that the new turbo six will be more efficient and offer more horsepower and torque than the V8.

With this terrain-mode system and better suspension, the 2017 Ford Raptor promises a smooth ride unique to such a large vehicle.
