2017 Ford F150

Raptor F150

There are a bunch of new things regarding the 2017 F-150. First off, Ford brought back the Raptor edition, scroll down for more info on that. The other big news is right here:

New 10-Speed Automatic Transmission

Tough competition from the Ram with the EcoDiesel with an 8 speed transmission is part of the reason Ford is putting a new 10 speed transmission in 2017 F-150's.

Another driving factor is CAFE fuel economy standards. And another is to reduce emissions. More gears means you can keep the engine in it's most fuel efficient range more often.

Ford and General Motors teamed up to research and develop the both 9-speed and 10-speed transmissions which will be used in various models owned by the automakers.

Did you know? Ford & General Motors have actually been working together since 2002 on developing transmissions?

In Ford's case, they're using the new 10 speed automatic transmission to help give the F-150 an advantage when it comes to fuel efficiency.

Reportedly, GM is focusing more effort on the 9 speed trans for front wheel drive vehicles, and Ford lead the development of the 10 speed automatic intended for rear wheel drive and four wheel drive trucks & SUVs.

What was previously known as the SVT (special vehicle team) Raptor is now the Raptor. In fact, it appears that basically the SVT was renamed "Ford Performance". Just an FYI there.
