A Lot in Common

2017 Ford Raptor

Whether you are considering the 2017 Ford Raptor or the 2017 Ford Super Duty, both come with the amazing features Ford builds into everyone of its trucks. For instance, both trucks feature a body constructed of high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy that means it's tougher than ever and yet up to 500 lbs. lighter. Who doesn't want a better body that also provides more fuel efficiency? Add to that construction the high strength, boxed steel frame and your new truck will be ready to hit any road in any condition, no matter what demands you are putting on it.
