2017 Ford Raptor

The F-150 Raptor is the new American badass—and it’s also a 2017 10Best winner. A 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 makes 450 hp and 510 lb-ft; it pairs with a 10-speed automatic. Rated at 18 mpg highway, it’s more efficient than previous models—if that matters to buyers. More important: It hits 60 mph in 5.1 seconds. Standard all-wheel drive, which features a locking center diff, can auto-shift to the rear wheels depending on drive mode. SuperCab and SuperCrew models are offered.
