2017 Ford Explorer Raptor To Have V8 Mustang Engine

By  | 

We have heard that the 2017 Ford Explorer Raptor is coming our way with the V8 engine belonging to the Mustang.

The 2017 Ford Explorer Raptor will be on the market for 2017 and it will be powered by the EcoBoost V8 5.0 engine that has taken many years to make. The engine was in the GT500 next gen and will be tweaked and used in the Raptor.

The EcoBoost program has seen a delay but it is now on track once again and this means that the engine of the Mustang is going to offer power to the 2017 Ford Explorer Raptor.

The engine will be 10 speed automatic and this is same as the V6 EcoBoost Raptor and Ford are said to have seen the potential for options for choices of engines by way of the V6 and 5.0 V8.

The 2017 Ford Explorer Raptor will offer the V8 engine and it was also said that it could come out with a turbocharged version in other vehicles of Ford.
