New Ford F-150 Raptor Trucks for sale in Hillsdale, MI
There’s Nothing in the World Like the Ford F-150 Raptor–See Why This Legend is Worth the Pricetag
The Ford F-Series is known for a lot: reliability, durability, stability, and holding onto resale value for dear life, for decades beyond the average. But they’re typically not known for burnouts on pavement, noise complaints, or finely tuned racing components. Unless, of course, you’re talking about the most infamous F-Series model of all time: the Ford F-150 Raptor.
The bad-boy of the Ford truck lineup, the Raptor seems like something out of a dream for Hillsdale drivers who are used to the quiet, stoic workhorses within the typical lineup.
This is a whole new animal.
Performance and Capabilities of the Epic F-150 Raptor
When you first take a look at the price of the Ford F-150 Raptor, you may feel a little deterred. Don’t be–because this beastly off-roading truck is worth every penny you’ll pay for it. It’s not just the most powerful, most fun, and most well-equipped truck that you’ll likely ever drive around Fremont; it’s a Ford F-Series. That means you can count on it being the most powerful and the most fun truck you’ll ever drive for a good few years to come.
Unlike some luxury sports cars that peter out after half a decade, the Raptor stands strong in its performance. And what a performance it gives.
Engine and Powertrain Specs
Once known as the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, this powerful truck has always boasted incredible power. But, the second-generation Raptor adopts a whole new powertrain for a whole new kind of force. The model features a Raptor-exclusive high-output twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, paired to a smooth and steady 10-speed automatic, that’s good for 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.
That’s even more output than the previous V-8 engine. That’s the power of EcoBoost.
Chances are, if you’re shopping for a Raptor–you’re ultimately not very concerned about its MPG. But here’s the good news: because the newest F-150 Raptor trucks use EcoBoost technology, and you can see up to 18 mpg on the highway, which is right about in line with other trucks this size. That means you don’t have to pretend to feel bad as you dominate every road in Michigan.
While average drivers may seize every opportunity to find off-road trails and epic adventures, the type of drivers who chooses the Ford F-150 Raptor are far from average. That’s why the new Raptor is built with tons of incredible all-terrain and off-road equipment to hold its own on just about any surface.
The F-150 Raptor features a fully boxed frame, and a front axle with TORSEN® differential and Electronic-Locking Rear Differential. A long-travel suspension with 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox gives the Raptor a surprisingly smooth ride, even on the roughest roads and most challenging surfaces. As you can imagine, 4WD comes standard on the Raptor to provide excellent grip and traction.
An Iconic, Bold Look
You can’t find muscle like this anymore. The very shape of the Ford Raptor is legendary, and whether you choose the SuperCab or SuperCrew style, you’re getting iconic design in every square inch. From the classic Ford F-150 Raptor grille, with in-your-face block letters and clever integrated marker lights, to its dual exhaust with dual tailpipes in the back, it’s impossible not to stand out in Hillsdale, MI.
The overall design of the Raptor is very Ford, and classic F-Series. A handsome shape, big wheel arches, and logical angles. It’s a recipe that works. But the Raptor treatment that Ford gives the F-150 is like adding Sriracha, chili flakes, and ghost peppers to the recipe. The angry snarl scrawled across the front fascia says it all, and anything left to be said is taken care of by a set of 17-inch cast aluminum wheels with hefty all-terrain tires.
