Ford's street legal, Baja-ready monster truck is all new for the 2017 model year and though its engine loses a couple cylinders Ford is saying that it will make up for it with their efficient 3.5L EcoBoost that will put down more power than the outgoing model's 411-hp 6.2L V8. 

The new engine will be mated to a 10-speed transmission and the new Raptor will get an all-new steel frame and a weight savings of 500 lbs with its all-aluminum body. Its also fitted with a dual exhaust, 17-inch wheels, and BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires. A new all-wheel-drive system is also in the mix, a brand new transfer case, and a new terrain management system with six driving modes that include everything from a street mode to a Baja mode for whipping around the desert. 

Available Fall 2016, Price TBD, More info at Ford.com.
