The upgraded 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. For 2017, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost gains 10 horsepower and 50 pounds-feet of torque, for a total of 375 hp and 470 lb-ft.

Ford is very pleased with itself, so much so that it released a video of the model’s suspension prowess:

    When I got into snowmobiling in the early 1990's "Fox" gas shocks were the big thing. My first brand new snowmobile, a 1995 Polaris XCR 440 had 4 rebuildable "Fox" gas shocks For what I need out of my PU, a Raptor is a completely a useless truck to me. But I can certainly appreciate the engineering Ford has put into these trucks and their capability off-road is amazing. Isn't the border patrol running these? Perfect truck for that job.

      @28 - They patrol the border. The effectiveness of those patrols is an entirely different story. Ironically a couple of children from southern Alberta crossed the border into the USA while playing Pokemon Go and they were swarmed by US Customs. Canadians must be way more dangerous than those criminal drug dealing sex offender Mexicans.

    So the JC Whitney special gets even more unnecessary shocks to handle the harsh reality of mall parking lots. Neat.

    They're just understaffed for the job of sealing a border some stay is impossible to seal, but a fast interceptor has to help. But when it comes down to it, we really need the narcotics and cheap labour. And we need more corrupt BP agents.

    Wait, Ford is partnering with a television network?
