Ford Raptor Generation II (2017-2020)

Building on the popularity of the Gen I SVT Raptor pickup, Ford introduced the Gen II Ford F-150 Raptor (dropping the SVT logo) prior to the 2017 model year. Again, a BAJA themed performance variant of the Ford F-150 stole the hearts of truck enthusiasts from rural as well as urban venues. With its new aluminum-intensive approach to truck building, Ford managed to reduce gross vehicle weight of the Gen II Raptor by more than 500-pounds from the previous generation. The frame rails were still enclosed steel but almost every other body panel was made of aircraft quality aluminum. After all, lighter is faster.

In keeping with the rugged off-road performance theme, Ford retained the Fox Racing internal bypass shocks with external reservoirs. Increasing the overall size of the shocks afforded the Gen II Ford Raptor greater ground clearance (13-inches in the front and 13.9-inches in the rear). In 2019, Live Valve Fox Racing Shocks were added to the F-150 Raptor.

This permitted the Raptor to automatically adjust shock settings depending upon terrain and driving conditions. A Torque-On-Demand all-wheel drive system was also employed on the Raptor, along with 35-inch all-terrain tires on 17-inch beadlock rims. Beadlock rims help to prevent the tire bead from separating from the rim even if it is flat.

Offered in SuperCab and SuperCrew configurations, the Gen II Ford F-150 Raptor can be easily recognized by a large black RAPTOR decal on the pickup bed. The Raptor’s unique FORD grille now included clearance lights. While most of the body panels were aluminum, the hood was still constructed of a composite material.

The key difference between the Gen I and Gen II Ford Raptor is found under the hood. Gone was the bulky V8 engine and in its place was an all-aluminum twin turbocharged V6 engine. A detuned version of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost motor found in the Ford GT, this V6 could generate 450hp and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. In a first for non-commercial vehicles, the 2017 Ford Raptor was equipped with a 10-speed (10R80) automatic transmission. In factory trim the Gen II Ford Raptor could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 5.2-seconds, tow up to 8,000-pounds and turn the quarter-mile in 13.9-seconds at 97.3 mph. It can also haul up to 1,200-pounds in the 5.5-foot bed.

Boost Your Ford Raptor to new levels with a Forza Performance Upgrade

Creating excitement in performance and off-road truck enthusiast community, Ford introduced the Gen III F-150 Raptor in February 2021. While the 2021 F-150 Raptor retains the 3.5-liter twin turbo EcoBoost engine, Ford has teased a substantial V8 engine option for the Ford F-150 Raptor R as early as 2022. Could it be that the Ford Raptor team plans to utilize the same supercharged Predator V8 (that powers the Mustang Shelby GT500) in an effort to stay ahead of the RAM 1500 TRX? Oh, in another industry first, 37-inch beadlocked wheels are also offered on the Gen III Ford Raptor.
