Ford F-150 Raptor Shines Under Beijing Spotlights

Part of Ford’s plan to introduce 12 new performance vehicles globally by 2020, the F-150 Raptor has made its China debut.

Sitting near the all-new Ford GT supercar and the Focus RS hot hatch, Bthe pickup truck will be launched in the People’s Republic in 2017, for the first time in its history, imported from the Dearborn Truck Plant in North America.

With the introduction of the F-150 Raptor, Ford is giving its customers in China the chance to experience unprecedented levels of off-road capability. The new Raptor exemplifies superior off-road ability, from rock-crawling to sand running“, said the Ford Motor China Chairman and CEO, John Lawler.

Ford will offer the F-150 Raptor SuperCrew variant in China. It is powered by the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, which is more powerful than the previous 6.2-liter V8, producing 411 HP and 434 lb-ft (588 Nm) of torque. The 10-speed auto gearbox, torque-on-demand transfer case with easy-to-use off-road mode driver-assist technology, improved four-wheel drive system, purpose built suspension and chassis should enable it to handle any surface and road condition with ease.
