Ford reveals the new F-150 Raptor

By Faiming_low on 17 Jan 2015 in New model

Attached Image Ford showed off its new F-150 Raptor truck, which is powered by a new twin-turbo V6, at the Detroit Motorshow recently. Linked to an all new 10-speed automatic gearbox, the new truck is said to deliver more horses and torque than the current Raptor's 411bhp and 588Nm of torque from the old 6.2-litre V8.
 

Attached Image Even though Ford declines to give exact power figures, we know the truck will be faster than before thanks to the latest generation F-150's aluminum body which is said to be lighter by more than 220kg.
 

Attached Image An all new four-wheel drive with torque-on-demand transfer case features in the truck with an optional Torsen front differential for increased off-road capability. 
 

Attached Image Six preset driving modes lets the driver choose how he/she wants the truck to behave by adjusting its powertrain, driveline, traction control, ABS and AdvanceTrac stability control.
 
  •  Normal mode for everyday driving
  •  Street mode for higher-performance, on-road driving
  •  Weather mode for rain, snow or ice
  •  Mud and sand mode for muddy and sandy trails and terrain
  •  Baja mode for high-speed desert running
  •  Rock mode for low-speed rock crawling
 
Attached Image The new Raptor is said to be 6 inches wider than the standard F-150 for improved stability off-road and it also gets a revised suspension with increased travel. 
 
Elsewhere, new 17-inch wheels shod in next-generation BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires specifically designed for off-road performance comes as standard.
 
Yummy.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
