3000

Tonight Ford auctioned a one-of-one 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor for charity at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, raising $157,000 to benefit JDRF.

Th winning bidder of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor (Lot No. 3004) will get the last 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor produced and get to choose a unique one-of-one Raptor color.

“The new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is by far the most off-road-capable vehicle on the market today, boasting some of the best performance technology to come from Ford,” said Jim Owens, marketing manager, Ford Performance. “Raptor serves as a testament to our passion for creating vehicles that are designed to tackle the toughest obstacles on earth. We’re really looking forward to auctioning off our custom creation to help support JDRF.”

Mark Fields, president and CEO, Ford Motor Company, was on the block were Ford team members involved in Raptor design and development, along with executives from JDRF. Ford has supported JDRF since 1983.

“JDRF is extremely grateful for the tremendous support we continue to receive from Ford and its employees, who share our vision of a world without type 1 diabetes,” said Derek Rapp, JDRF president and CEO. “Last year, we joined Ford to auction a one-of-a-kind Focus RS at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale, and we are thrilled to come together again as Ford introduces the new Raptor. Funds raised through this auction support JDRF in our mission to accelerate life-changing breakthroughs to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes and its complications.”

Equipped with an all-new Raptor-exclusive high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, F-150 Raptor churns out 510 lb.-ft. of torque and 450 horsepower across a wide powerband. Thanks to an all-new Ford-built 10-speed transmission and exclusive transfer case managed by a six-mode Terrain Management System, Raptor can tackle virtually any terrain.

Other exclusive features of the all-new Raptor include incorporating the same high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body and fully boxed high-strength steel frame as F-150. This reduces weight by 500 pounds versus the 2014 truck.

The 2017 Raptor features a beefier suspension with monstrous aluminum control arms up front, specially tuned springs at the back, 3.0-inch internal-bypass Fox Racing shocks and plenty of off-road armor to help the truck power through anything.

“Barrett-Jackson has enjoyed a long and solid relationship with Ford that has raised millions of dollars to benefit charity,” said Craig Jackson, chairman and CEO, Barrett-Jackson Auctions. “The auction of the highly anticipated Ford Raptor promises to be a highlight of the show – one that will help support a truly great cause. We look forward to our continued relationship with Ford as we work together to support those in need.”
