At the 2016 North American International Auto Show Ford announced FordPass to deliver a new connected experience and the 2017 Fusion as well as the new F-150 Raptor SuperCrew.

Ford took the DNA from a Baja race truck to deliver a new experience with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and a 10-speed transmission and the new EcoBoost engine cuts 500 pounds off the weight to deliver better power to weight ratio and a more agile experience driving offroad.

  • Weather mode for rain, snow or ice
  • Mud and sand mode for muddy and sandy trails and terrain
  • Baja mode for high-speed desert running and
  • Rock mode for low-speed rock crawling

The F-150 Raptor SuperCrew includes four full-size doors and a roomier interior that offers more legroom for passengers and more room to carry cargo in the cabin. The SuperCrew is 12-inches longer than the F-150 Raptor SuperCab.

“F-150 Raptor means superior off-road capability, from rock crawling to sand running,” said Dave Pericak, Ford Performance global director. “With the addition of SuperCrew, F-150 Raptor customers can leave the pavement behind – without sacrificing comfort and space.”

Shoppers can buy the new F-150 Raptor SuperCrew in Fall 2016. Ford plans to build the new truck in the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan.
