These days you see marketing hype everywhere you look, and Ford Motor Company is one of the best for every market. Ford has continued to accelerate forward in the truck market with the launch of the Gen 2 2017 Ford Raptor and the ever evolving line of Ecoboost motors.

So with all of the trucks being offered in the truck lineup is there really a big difference between the 2017 Ford Raptor and the 2017 F150 Ecoboost? Jason Lader reports from TorqueNews.com.




Let's start the with the truck that started it all, the F150, and now the 2017 F150 has the 3.5 ecoboost motor. For those that don't know the Ecoboost on the V6 model has twin turbos. The motor offering in the F150 can definitely hold its own among the other players in the full size truck market putting down 375hp and 470ft-lb.


Second up is the Gen 2 Raptor which at the current time is only offered with the 3.5 v6 Ecoboost motor. Same motor as the F150 right? Nope, Ford performance has not let the people down, they have given them what they didn't know they were looking for, a H.O. Ecoboost V6 [Gen 2 Raptor only]. Putting down 450hp and 510ft-lbs making the 2017 Ford Raptor the highest horse power truck in the 2017 full size truck lineup.

So to sum it up, yes, there is a difference in the 2017 Ford Raptor 3.5 Ecoboost and the 2017 F150 3.5 Ecoboost motors, but it doesn't matter. Both 3.5 Ecoboost motors have twin turbos under the hood and are both full of tire shredding potential that will put a grin from ear to ear every time you pin it!
