PHOTOS > Up close with the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor prototype

Updated Nov 27, 2015

We’re still a year away from an all new Raptor going on sale. And though Ford revealed this truck back in January this year’s SEMA show just gave us our first opportunity to see a prototype of this monster up close.

You can check out the finer details of the truck in the gallery above, including a peek at the interior. (We had to shoot through the window because Ford had the truck locked up “for your own safety.”)

Just in case you need a refresher, like the latest F-150 and Super Duty trucks, the 2017 Raptor has an aluminum body shaving off 500 pounds of the previous model’s weight. Its stance is 6 inches wider than a stock F-150 and it’s powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost turbo V6 with a 10-speed transmission. That engine replaces the last generation Raptor’s 6.2-liter V8 and is the same one found in the 2017 GT supercar.
