Look At The Upcoming Ford F-150 Raptor Supercrew

New Ford F-150 Truck Can Roll Over Everything


Published March 9, 2016

The F-150 Raptor pickup was the best-selling vehicle produced by the Ford Performance division when it disappeared at the end of 2014. At that time, the SuperCrew model accounted for 80 percent of its sales, despite the trimmer SuperCab, with its small rear-access doors, being a more fitting configuration for a high performance machine.

Of course, many customers want as much truck as they can get. So, a year after unveiling the upcoming 2017 Raptor SuperCab, Ford has revealed a new SuperCrew model to go with it.

Mechanically, the two are the same, and extremely different than the old truck. Built with F-150’s new aluminum construction, they each lose around 500 pounds, and come with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. Ford Global Performance Vehicle Chief Engineer Jamal Hameedi says it will be more powerful than the 411 hp 6.2-liter V8 it replaces.

Hameedi does promise that the truck will be faster and better handling than the old Raptor, while keeping its focus on desert running, although serious rock-climbing capability is still in the works. A new 10-speed automatic transmission should help it make up for that, as will its Four-by-Four system. The Raptor’s special E-Locker rear differential carries over to handle high-speed, trophy truck-style 2 wheel drive sand action, and its available Torsen front differential adds traction on difficult climbs. Figuring out which to use, and when, should be a piece of cake with a new Terrain Management system that takes the place of the array of switches and buttons in the old Raptor, and simply lets you choose from multiple modes that include Baja and Rock. It figures out which range to set the transfer case to, which differentials to lock, and offers a Four-Wheel-Drive mode for everyday driving on slick roads.

For when it gets really rough, there’s a new 360-degree video system with a nose camera that can peer over rises while you’re staring at the sky through the windshield; a set of beadlock-capable wheels will be a factory accessory; and a suspension upgraded with more durable Fox shocks and 11.2 inches of wheel travel in front and a foot in the rear.

Even if you do scratch the fenders on tight trails, the damage won't be too bad since they’re made from ding-resistant sheet-molded composite, as were the previous Raptor’s. The new Avalanche Grey paint color revealed with the SuperCrew will help cover up any scratches, too, and it looks positivley superb.
