According to reports out of Detroit, where the North American International Auto Show is taking place, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will be getting a boost—as in EcoBoost.

The truck will feature a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine that will reportedly make more power than the current model’s 6.2L V8, which puts out 411 horsepower and 434 ft.-lbs. of torque. Combine the potent new engine with a lightweight aluminum body that saves over 500 pounds, and you’ve got yourself one speedy workhorse.

The new Raptor is six inches wider than the standard F-150, giving it the added stability it needs. You can learn more about the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, including its updated suspension and four-wheel drive system, by checking out this post from Autoblog.
