2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Finally Has Use For Baja Mode

By  | 

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has what is called a Baja Mode in the driver settings but unless you plan on driving through the desert there isn’t much call for it. Now the Raptor has found a good use for the mode as it is taking part in the Baja 1000.

Just as with the first Raptor that was introduced in 2008, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is taking part in the Baja 1000 in Stock Full class. This is the same class as Toyota took part in with the Tundra TRD Pro just two years back.

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor taking part in the event is the identical version to the one that you can get behind the wheel of at the dealer. However for the Baja 1000 there have been a few changes and these include the roll cage, a fuel cell that is puncture resistant, LED light bars and the racing seats with harnesses.

Some things have remained the same as the dealer version and this includes the stock V6 twin turbocharged engine, the aluminium body and the drivetrain. So if you fancy taking a spin out in the desert, you can be sure that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is certainly up to it.
