The holidays have come early this year at Stoneham Ford. Our dealership just received our first shipment of the 2017 Ford Raptor —and we’re in love. Because we want you to fall in love with the Raptor too, here’s a quick look at what you can expect when you take this beastly, off-road-ready pickup truck out for a test drive.
Peace and quiet. Typically, big, beefy pickup trucks come with loud cabins, right? It almost seems as if it’s a requirement to become a pickup. This isn’t the case with the 2017 Raptor. When you’re out on the streets, there is minimal road noise from the wind or giant off-roading tires.
A smooth ride. Despite the fact that the Raptor is ready to head off the beaten path, it still rides like a luxury sedan. Its suspension manages to take corners with ease and remains smooth at all times. There is no choppy acceleration with the Raptor’s 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine, either.
It’s really, really good-looking. The Ford F-150 design has always had our hearts, and the 2017 Raptor plays off of this classic style—and pumps it up some. It practically screams “Ford” both on its grille and its liftgate, making it obvious what carmaker created the monster. Its muscular angles and sculpted lines make for an aggressive look that is undeniably attractive.
