Ford released the 2017 F-150 Raptor at this years Detroit auto show, it made quite a splash, both in the looks department and the announcement of a new generation of EcoBoost 3.5 liter V6 backed up by a 10 speed transmission. Ford promises more power than the 411 horsepower and 434 ft-lb’s of torque 6.2 liter V8 that used to power the Raptor, on top of that Ford let it slip it would actually be 450 horsepower, no word on torque yet though. But I would expect 500 ft-lb’s or more.

But lets get back to its looks, I was very impressed with the truck, until I saw the tailgate, I’m not the biggest fan of large “FORD” lettering on both the front and the back of the truck, but upon researching this further I found that the tailgate is an option! So for those of you that would rather have a more subtle tailgate, just don’t buy the tailgate option, simple as that! I’m definitely okay with the lettering on the front though, it sets the Raptor apart from the F-150 lineup and it think it combines well with the design of the grille. Besides that, other options will include LED lighting and a 360 degree camera.

    This is what RAM should do with their obnoxious new tailgate on the 2016 Laramie Limited. On top of that, next to the RAM with its massive chrome letters, the tailgate on the ’17 Raptor looks subtle.
