Today, Ford Performance confirmed the twin turbo V6 ecoboost specifications we’ve all been waiting for – the 2017 Ford Raptor will have 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.  This is a significant increase over the 2010-2014 Raptor 6.2L V8, which put out 411 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque.  Ford also released the mileage numbers, and the new 2017 will get 15 mpg in the city, and 18 mpg on the highway, for a 16 mpg combined rating.  We’re not sure why Ford waited so long to release these numbers, given that the 2017 Raptor will be entering production in the coming weeks. Many people have already ordered their vehicle and have VIN numbers and production dates.  The motor specifications release coincides with the opening of the Texas State Fair in Dallas, TX.  Texas is a huge truck market, and the Raptor is a popular seller there.  Expect a full Raptor display at the State Fair.  Raptor Magazine staff will be attending and will be bringing updated info from the show.
