Holiday Gift Ideas: Traxxas Releases 2017 Ford Raptor R/C
Righteous Raptor: Traxxas offers scale off-road fun with R/C version of Ford’s new 2017 F-150 Raptor in time for Christmas
Sure, we’re Mustang fanatics first and foremost around here at Mustang-360.com, but we’re also fans of all of Ford’s performance vehicles. From the new Focus RS to the hot new Ford GT supercar, we’d love to have one of each in our dream garage. One of the most anticipated Ford performance vehicles to return to the showroom for 2017 is the new Ford F-150 Raptor pickup. Featuring a 3.5L EcoBoost twin-turbo V-6, stiffer frame, all new styling, and even better suspension than its predecessor, Ford truck enthusiasts are lining up to order one. Whether they plan to tackle the desert, use it as a tow rig, or simply be the baddest truck in their work parking lot, who cares. We’re just thrilled Ford is bringing the Raptor back.
The radio controlled car and truck peeps at Traxxas must certainly feel the same way, as they’ve crafted up a trick version of their famous Slash short-course R/C truck with the new 2017 Raptor body on it. Officially licensed by Ford, this new electric R/C truck features a true to scale F-150 Raptor body with Raptor graphics pre-applied and available in one of three official Ford colors (Lighting Blue, Oxford White, and Magnetic), with BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A tires, oil filled coilover shocks, geared differential, and sealed waterproof electronics for fun out on the trails in any condition or weather!
If you’re considering buying a 2017 F-150 Raptor how cool would it be to have a “mini me” for your kids to play with (or the kid in you)? Or if you’re like us and only dream of owning one of Ford’s hot new Raptor trucks you could pick one of these Traxxas Raptors up to help ease the pain of not owning the full size version! That’s our plan anyway, to have one of these bad boys under our Christmas tree this year—make it Lighting Blue please!
