Ford

The 2017 Ford Raptor has been named AutoGuide.com’s Pickup Truck of the Year after leaving the competition in the dust. The tough truck earned the designation during testing in Barstow, California, where judges praised its innovative design and ability to deliver standout performance at an affordable price.

“The 2017 Raptor is the whole package. It’s not just suspension or just appearance. Ford left no stone unturned with this purpose-built Baja runner, and it shows,” said Stephen Elmer, AutoGuide.com trucks editor.

Perfect for serious off-roading enthusiasts, the new Raptor in Grand Prairie builds on the success of its predecessor with better performance and new high-tech features that make it better than ever. It employs a 450-horsepower 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that makes 510 pound-feet of torque. Mated to the powerplant is a smooth 10-speed automatic transmission. The new Raptor is also 500 pounds lighter than the old one, thanks to its aluminum-alloy body.

A do-it-all truck, the Raptor is definitely worth considering as your next new vehicle. Come test drive one today at Grand Prairie Ford. We look forward to seeing you soon!
