2017 SEMA: Ford F-150 Raptor takes inspiration from Xbox One X

It was not very long ago when we first saw the Ford F-150 Raptor, and already we have seen a number of interesting variants of the said model. From a police truck, and now to an Xbox One X Edition, that was specially made for gamers. Its release is timed to nearly coincide with Microsoft’s launch of its newest gaming console, the Xbox One X, on November 7. It will be the fourth generation Xbox console since it was first launched. This videogame-inspired F-150 Raptor is showcased at the 2017 SEMA Show in Vegas. Of course, it is dressed in a unique Xbox livery and has got a number of added performance cues.

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition was designed with a number of video-game inspired design elements such as custom graphics, paint, and even the upholstery - all of which are inspired by Xbox One X’s internal codename “project Scorpio”. The exterior is finished in a subtle matte grey paint, with matching white accents all over, and of course, Forza Motorsport decals by the front wheel. Some of which include a giant “X” as well as the words “Project Scorpio” across the windshield. This truck is basically an Xbox on wheels.

To make it even more special, it had been given custom wheels, bumpers, a chase rack, and some green LED lighting of course - the same hue that has been used on every Xbox since 2001. There are performance modifications that come standard like the Fabtech six-inch lift kit, upgraded Alcon brakes, and Addictive Desert Designs intercooler and a Ford Performance Borla exhaust. However, it was not mentioned whether this would give the standard Raptor added horsepower. But without any modifications whatsoever, it does deliver an impressive 450 horsepower (335 kilowatts) from its 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6.

Ford launches newest uprated version of 2017 F-150 Raptor, the SuperCrew

Ford is introducing its all-new F-150 Raptor SuperCrew – now more versatile, more spacious and more agile, as well as tougher and smarter. The four-door F-150 Raptor SuperCrew offers more legroom and comfort to rear occupants as well as more room for storage – thanks to its 145-inch wheelbase.

In comparison, the wheelbase of the standard Raptor SuperCab measures just 133 inches. Its capability and performance are astounding whatever the terrain is, thanks to its purpose-built engine and chassis, as well as suspension. Ford used advanced materials like high-strength steel as well as high-strength, military grade, aluminum alloy to help the new SuperCrew become more off-road capable while still being lighter by 500 pounds than its predecessor.

This allowed the F-150 Raptor SuperCrew to achieve a better power-to-weight ratio for more agile performance even when it’s driven off-road. Since the purpose-built fully boxed frame of the SuperCrew features more high-strength steel than the outgoing Raptor, the new vehicle is considered as the toughest F-150 Raptor to date.
