If you’re been living under a rock for the last year or so then it’s possible you’ve missed the fact that Ford has an all-new Raptor coming as a 2017 model – which is part of the reason Ford didn’t offer Raptor in 2016. Ford has been teasing its newest version of the Raptor recently, which will be fitted with a new 10-speed transmission that will be paired with an updated 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine rated to produce 411 horsepower and 434 lb.-ft. of torque.
Just today, Ford unveiled the details on the terrain modes that will be featured in the new F-150 Raptor. Here’s the breakdown that Ford unveiled today:
