Autoblog.com's recent reveal of its "15 New Cars and Trucks That Will Still Be Cool in 2027" list highlights vehicles with what may be described as a "lasting factor" - a vehicle's potential to stay popular amongst car buyers over time. Number nine on the list is the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor. Watch it in the video below:
The Raptor's trendiness is inherent to the truck, according to the Autoblog team. The first-generation Raptor provided the foundation for what the second generation takes up a notch. It comes in notably lighter - five hundred pounds lighter, to be specific - which is attributable to its all-aluminum body and bed. The new Raptor also has four-wheel drive and uses Fox Racing Shox, which is a reputable feature for off-roaders; in addition, it has a driver-adjustable Terrain Management System with six settings and a twin-turbocharged, all-aluminum 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine.
Although the Raptor's predicted to stand the tests of time, now is as good of a time as any to test-drive one at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington. Stop by today!
