This is The 2017 Ford F150 Raptor, the baddest, most capable factory-produced truck of its kind. And on paper, it’s better than the previous generation raptor in just about every way. But we’re going to put that to the top topic today, give this thing a thorough once-over and decide if the 2017 raptor deserves to be crowned the king of all off-road factory trucks.
Now, ford actually debuted the original raptor back in 2010 in what I can only imagine was a dare between ford execs at some dive bar in Michigan over a few beers, just to build the baddest, craziest truck of its time, and that’s exactly what they did.
Now, fast forward, nearly seven years later and different manufacturers are still coming up with their own renditions of off-road tomfoolery, but no one has done it quite as well as the blue oval in my opinion, and that never has been more apparent than with the 2017 raptor.

Ford claims you should see high teens under normal driving conditions but, come on, what is that really? it’s a nice truck, man. They’ve really stepped up their game as far as balancing off-road functionality, pick-up truck functionality, and just creature comforts. I mean, these things, granted this isn’t the best example because this is kind of a base truck but still, the creature comforts in these things any more rival luxury cars. And you really are spoiled here in the modern age of cars and trucks. But that being said, guys, come on, the raptor, yes, it’s great on the road, but this thing was meant to kick some ass off-road. So, what do you say we do that? now, some people might see the 2017 raptor and unfairly assume that all ford did was slap on an elaborate body kit, bolt up some fancy suspension and call it a day, which really isn’t the case at all.
In fact, the only thing the raptor shares with its standard F 150 brethren is the cab itself. Everything else is completely unique. Now, that muscled up body, and fancy suspension does ride on a unique frame and the super cab, short bed truck is what we’re in right now. And that features a 133-inch frame.
Ok that’s it. See you on the next post.
