The F-150 Raptor combines sports car speed, off-road performance, and luxury styling. 

It’s hard to imagine a Ford F-150 that can handle your off-roading adventures, let alone one that could hold its own on the drag strip. Then you walk up to the Raptor, and your automatic keyless entry kicks in, the first of many luxury features. 

Seriously — it’s the kind of combination you just need to see to believe. And that’s why Autotrader named the F-150 Raptor the “Must Test Drive” vehicle of 2017. 

Light and Fast 

Autotrader highlights 12 vehicles every year as the must-sees. The cars, trucks, and SUVs that you have to experience to believe. 

And the F-150 Raptor definitely belongs on the list. 

The 2017 F-150 Raptor features a 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine that generates 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. This is all housed in a military-grade, aluminum-alloy body — allowing for speed unlike any model before it.  

Quick and Strong

No matter where you live, the opportunity for adventure is always looming. And there’s no reason not to take it with the F-150 Raptor. 

The 2017 F-150 Raptor comes with BF Goodrich KO2 tires designed exclusively for the truck’s extended off-road capabilities. It’s a challenge for you to find somewhere this truck can’t go.

But don’t think this off-roading truck is going to be a rough and noisy ride. Upgraded FOX Shocks ensure a smooth, quiet, luxurious ride. 

See It For Yourself

We can only tell you so much about the F-150 Raptor. But to see the unprecedented mix of muscle car, off-road SUV, and luxury sedan come together in a Ford truck, you’ll need to stop by your local Bismarck Ford dealership and give it a test drive. It’s going to be a fun one!
