DETROIT -- Ford Motor Co. today showed the four-door, SuperCrew version of the 2017 F-150 Raptor, with a wheelbase that’s 12 inches longer than the SuperCab Raptor.

Ford has not announced pricing for any variations of the Raptor, which goes on sale in the fall and has a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. Ford also hasn't released final specs, but says the truck will have at least 450 hp and 450 pounds-feet of torque. The previous generation has 411 hp and 434 pounds-feet of torque.

It’s the first vehicle to use a new 10-speed transmission developed with General Motors.

The Raptor is 6 inches wider than the standard F-150 for greater off-road stability. It’s up to 500 pounds lighter than the previous Raptor, which ended production in 2014.

“F-150 Raptor means superior off-road capability, from rock crawling to sand running,” Dave Pericak, the global director of Ford Performance, said in a statement. “With the addition of SuperCrew, F-150 Raptor customers can leave the pavement behind -- without sacrificing comfort and space.”
