Everyone here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL, knew Ford was on to something when they unveiled the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. Thanks to its 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine paired with a segment-first 10-speed automatic transmission offering 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, along with its six-mode Terrain Management System, the new Ford F-150 Raptor gives a whole new meaning to the idea of off-road performance. And not only have drivers all around the country flocked to the 2017 F-150 Raptor, those giving out the annual awards have, too.
