2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew spied totally naked


At this point, Ford appears so confident about the design of the 2017 F-150 Raptor that the company isn't even bothering to camouflage the test trucks anymore. While we recently saw the rear undisguised, this SuperCrew offers an opportunity to check out the performance pickup from some much better angles.

Other than a change to the tailgate trim, the Raptor looks to make the transition to the road practically unaltered from the one on display at the Detroit Auto Show. The truck looks especially fantastic in black, and the fender flares lend a muscular appearance. You can easily spot the more aggressive shocks at the rear, too. This one also wears a slightly different wheel design than the previous one. With SuperCab and SuperCrew versions already testing, Ford seems to be readying a Raptor for any buyer's desires.

Underneath the hood, Ford packs the performance truck with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that reportedly makes 450 horsepower, and the engine is hooked up to a 10-speed automatic. A combination of terrain management tech and an optional Torsen front differential should help keep the pickup powering through just about any offroad conditions. For testing, Ford is taking to Raptors to all sorts of environments to make sure the model could back up its mean look.

These fresh spy shots appear to show a mostly production-ready example on the road. In fact, there doesn't appear to be evidence of camouflage or obfuscation anywhere. Compared to the last one we saw (included in the gallery above), the

    United States drivers buying fewer Mexican-made cars

    Crossovers and pickup trucks are not only growing in market share, they're also more profitable than cars. A crossover on the same platform as a sedan retails for thousands more, despite similar components. It's one of the reasons we've seen automakers rapidly shifting production of their sedans and hatchbacks to Mexico, where cheap labor preserves the thin profit margins on these inexpensive

    Is the Ford EcoSport coming to the USA?

    Rumor has it Ford may start selling the Fiesta-based crossover called EcoSport in the USA. The subcompact crossover is not new to the Ford lineup, it's been for sale since the model year 2004 in many global markets. It was recently introduced in Europe.

    What Ford GT acceptance and rejection letters look like

    Imagine what everyone that put in a request to purchase a Ford GT is experiencing this week, as acceptance and rejection letters for the twin-turbocharged supercar start arriving in 6,506 mailboxes. On the one hand, the rejection letters are probably the saddest thing we've read in a long time. Not merely because it denies an owner a dream, but because it's also jarringly upbeat. Where a
