Ever-Impressive 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Gets SuperCrew Model

Ford’s beastly F-150 SVT Raptor pickup has received an all-new variant, dubbed the SuperCrew at the ongoing Detroit auto show.

The headline of the F-150 SVT Raptor is the inclusion of four fullsize passenger doors, adding more versatility to the go-anywhere and do-anything off-roader.

To create the car, the wheelbase of the standard Raptor has been stretched by a full 12 inches, meaning it now stands at 145 inches. As with the two-door 2017 Raptor, the SuperCrew is significantly lighter than the previous-generation car by about 500 pounds thanks to the use of high-strength steel and aluminum in its construction.

Beyond the new doors and additional interior space, the SuperCrew is virtually identical to the normal model with all the same technologies. Ford hasn’t released figures for the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, but it reiterated that it will “produce more power with greater efficiency” than the current 6.2-liter V8, which delivers 411 horsepower and 434 lb.-ft. of torque, and is paired to a ten-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to an improved all-wheel drive system with a torque-on-demand transfer case, the car promises to be a brute when the going gets tough.

Discussing the car, Ford Performance global director Dave Pericak said “F-150 Raptor means superior off-road capability, from rock crawling to sand running. With the addition of SuperCrew, F-150 Raptor customers can leave the pavement behind – without sacrificing comfort and space.”

*Correction – the output numbers mentioned in a previous version of this article were in fact for the current 6.2L V8 and not for the new 3.5L V6 EcoBoost
