2017 Ford F-150 Raptor spied in mostly production guise
Unfortunately, the gloss black color does little to show off the muscle truck's matte accents. In profile, at least, the two-tone look is obvious along the fenders, door handles, and side vent. One thing to note is the fairly simple Raptor logo and classic Blue Oval logo on the tailgate. This, along with the lack of other decals, appears to be the biggest departure from the version at the Detroit Auto Show. Although with the pickup still months away from going on sale, all of those elements could be fairly easily added in the meantime.
While the mechanicals aren't so obvious in these photos, we know that Ford is equipping the 2017 Raptor with large Fox Racing shocks and an optional Torsen front differential. Power comes from a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with over 411 horsepower that's backed up by a 10-speed automatic. The company has been testing the trucks' equipment in forests and in deserts to make sure they can stand up to owners' abuse.
