Ford hails its 2017 all-new Ford F-150 Raptor as “the toughest, smartest, most capable Raptor ever.” Today, Ford is highlighting a key new feature on its new pickup, which helps explain why it hails it as its best off-road truck to date: purpose-built Fox shocks constructed exclusively for the new Raptor.

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:

Much like the first incarnation of the Ford Raptor, the new Ecoboost-powered 2017 F-150 model will also feature a set of BFGoodrich tires specially developed for the off-road truck that Ford says will improve both on- and off-road performance of the truck.

Shot in he same area Ford did the majority of its off-road testing for the first-generation F-150 Raptor, the blue oval just whet the appetites for all those clamoring for a better look at the new EcoBoost-powered 2017 Raptor with a new video.

Ford unveiled its 2017 F-150 Raptor in the Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan, earlier this week.

Ford really kept the lid on its second-generation Raptor leading up to the Detroit Auto Show. Sure, there was some grumbling about a new Raptor incorporating the weight loss on the all-new 2015 F-150 thanks to its all-new aluminum body, but if anyone outside of Ford knew about it they certainly didn’t spill the beans.
