It is my great pleasure to announce the new 2016 Ford F150 Raptor. F150 is the best
selling car in the USA in 2014. Of course, people in the company Ford invent improvements
for this great car. In this moment, engineers in Ford are making development of the new
model, which will be known as the F150 Raptor. Most importantly, the new Raptor will
contain many aluminum parts. However, the most important decision is that F150 will going
to continue to show raw power. For this reason, this model will not be in line with the
new trends: better fuel consumption consistent with the protection of the environment.
The new F150 SVT Raptor will be beast set to rule the offroad vehicles.
2016 Ford F150 engine and MPG
In order to achieve impressive results in effective, powerful engine is required. At Ford
have given up from V8 engine variants. According to the announcement, the new model will
be equipped with a V6 engine EcoBust of 3.5 liters. Thus, the new engine will be slightly
lower displacement than before. However, power will still be there, although it is still
unknown how much hp will have a new engine. This engine will be coupled with superior
automatic transmission with 10 speeds with improved Fox suspension. It is not yet known
consumption of the new engine, but do not expect anything spectacular. Yet, this is the
model for offroad cruise along rough terrain. The previous model had a combined city /
highway fuel economy of 13mpg, so the new model will have an approximate amount. However,
thanks to the aluminum parts of the body, Raptor will be competitive to its main
competitor Ram 1500. According to the announcement, the new Raptor will be lighter even
500 pounds compared to the previous model.
2016 Ford F150 interior redesign
According to all indications, the inside of the Raptor will be extremely comfortable. As
is known, the basic model has three seats while, SuperCrew has the ability to 6 seats.
All seats will be extremely comfortable, with leather upholstery, and option of cooling
and heating. The driver has an excellent view thanks to the smart set seat. Among other
functionalities, particularly note worthy powerful audio system with 4 speakers. It
should be noted the USB port, and Bluetooth, as well as significantly improved MyFord
Touch system, which serves an 8-inch screen. There is a lot of details that make everyday
tasks that you do on your car. For example, cargo box is equipped with LED lights that
are set in a great location. There is a 6.5 foot or 8-foot bed to get some sleep when you
get tired from a long drive.
