Serving Columbus, Westerville, and Gahanna, OH

As light-duty pickup trucks that are available with full-size cabs, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 are ready to take on challenging jobs. Running on the High-Output EcoBoost V6 engine, the Raptor is much more powerful than the Silverado 1500. Available with the SYNC 3 system and Adaptive Cruise Control, this premium Ford pickup truck also offers superior technology.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Exterior


The Ford F-150 Raptor is driven by the 3.5 L High-Output EcoBoost V6 engine that whips out 450 horsepower at 5,000 RPM and 510 pound-feet of torque at 3,500 RPM. By contrast, the Chevy Silverado 1500's 6.2 L EcoTec3 V8 engine produces a maximum of 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. The 4.3 L and 5.3 L EcoTec3 engines have even lower hp and torque ratings. A 10-speed automatic transmission system makes it easy to handle the F-150 Raptor in any condition. The Silverado 1500's six-speed automatic transmission doesn't offer as many options in gear combinations. Nevertheless, both of these pickup trucks have the Tow/Haul Mode in their transmission systems.

Rolling on a 4x4 drive that comes with the Terrain Management System, the F-150 Raptor can confidently tackle any landscape. This advanced 4x4 drive is engineered to maximize traction on rocks, sand, mud, snow, gravel and other rough surfaces. Designed to absorb harsh bumps, grinds and vibrations from the ground, the 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox stabilize the vehicle's chassis on rugged terrains. Additionally, the Torsen front differential enhances the Raptor's off-road capabilities.


The F-150 Raptor is available in cool paint options such as Lighting Blue, Ruby Red and Shadow Black. Red Hot, Deep Ocean Blue and Graphite Metallic are some of the exterior colors that are available for the Chevy Silverado 1500. However, this Ford pickup truck offers more convenient features such as the Box Link that's compatible with storage bins, dividers and other universal accessories. Stowable loading ramps can be easily set up right on the vehicle's tailgate extension. The Tailgate Assist gives you some good leverage for climbing on the bed. Designed to resist corrosion and scratches, a spray-in bedliner comes standard.

For a robust pickup truck, the Ford F-150 Raptor boasts quite a sophisticated cockpit that includes the SYNC 3 infotainment system. With the swipe of the 8-inch LCD touch screen, you can easily browse GPS navigation software and other applications. The Applink provides convenient ways to connect external smartphones with the SYNC 3 portal. Additionally, the 8-inch monitor shows a split-screen view of live videos that are recorded by an external camera.

In the active safety category, the Raptor has plenty of impressive features such as the Adaptive Cruise Control. This cutting-edge cruise control system comes with the Collision Warning, which analyzes the risk of a front crash. If you don't react quickly to the visible and audible alerts, then the Brake Support will automatically slow down the vehicle. The Blind Spot Information System and Rear Cross Traffic Alert also help you avoid colliding with other vehicles that might be approaching from the side. With some guidance from the Pro Trailer Backup Assist, you can confidently take on tough towing jobs.
