Ford GT unveils GT’s successor, 2016 Ford F-150 Raptor, shook the automobile world with its edgy look. A super car that the makers decided to reveal their plans for 2016. With its aluminum body, it not only gives it a sleek look but it’s going down by at least 450 pounds of weight from its predecessor.
Underneath the aluminum body will be a 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 engine which is going to be much better than the current 6.2 liter V8’s 411 horsepower and 434 pound feet of torque. Whereas in Ford-150, it will generate more than 600 horsepower. Ford GT also decided to chip in a 10-speed auto transmission replacing the current 6-speed unit with excellent adjustments of aspect ratios — be it traveling on-road or deserts.
With a low-end torque, its fuel economy is one its fortes.
This all new 2016 Ford F-150 Raptor Ecoboost V6 takes the performance to the next level. The front and rear shock will escalated by 3 inches in diameter for the improved performance, also adding to its exterior. After all, constructing an off-road truck isn’t all about the engine power — It is a lot more about suspension. Its special crafted suspension bit improves the efficiency much more than the current Ford GT and thus enables the fast driving capabilities.
Raptor manages to help keep up with the control over drive line. So there are 6 mode of driving, namely –
Normal mode – Usual driving. Street mode – High performance of on-road traveling. Weather mode – Rain, snow and icy terrains mostly. Sandy mode – Driving on muddy trails. Baja mode – High speed desert traveling Rock mode – Rock crawling .
