2017 Ford F-150 Raptor: Must Test Drive – Video

Editor’s note: You may also want to read Autotrader’s 2017 Ford F-150 review.  


You might be surprised to see an enthusiast-oriented off-roader truck on this year’s Must Test Drive list instead of a standard pickup model, but it’s hard to ignore how good the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor really is for its audience. Sure, it’s expensive, as prices start from $50,200 with shipping and can rise considerably from there — and it’s not very efficient, either, with its 450-horsepower turbocharged V6 delivering just 15 miles per gallon in the city and 18 mpg on the highway. But how do you ignore just how cool it is? Our content producer Rob called it “a monster in the best way possible,” while editor Ben referred to it as the “most ‘real’ off-road pickup on the market,” accurately noting that “Most off-road variants have larger tires and a few decals — but not this.” That’s exactly right, and that’s exactly why we love it so much. We also love that it’s roomy, and that it’s loaded with high-tech features that wouldn’t seem out of place in a luxury car. As editor Dwight asks: “Is there anything this massive truck can’t do?” No, and that’s why the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is one of our Must Test Drive vehicles for 2017.
