It appears the warm welcome the new Mustang received in the United Kingdom has emboldened Ford to offer their “special” models in markets they traditionally wouldn’t get close to. A case in point is the launch of the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor in the Chinese market.
The first batch of 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor production trucks have departed for China, offering the people of the red republic something they haven’t really experienced before: a cool and macho pickup truck with the performance of a sports car and off-road capability of a Range Rover. The Raptors for China are all four-door SuperCrew models which might seem like an overkill size-wise. But as you know the Chinese like their cars big. They are always te first to get long wheelbase versions of luxury saloons and SUVs.
So if you are a Chinese person and you are excited for the launch of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor in your country, let us tell you that it’s a dopeass truck with military-grade, high-strength, aluminum-alloy cab, high-output version of the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, plus a Ford-built 10-speed automatic transmission and advanced six-mode Terrain Management System, plus Ford Performance-engineered high-strength steel frame with custom Fox Racing shocks with higher ground clearance, BFGoodrich off-road tires and full dual-performance exhaust system.
