We are still about a year away until the arrival of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, but Ford’s engineers are hard at work trail testing prototypes. Ford has released this video of an early prototype climbing two track trails in Northern Michigan.

The 2017 F-150 Raptor has better ground clearance than the first-generation Raptor and comes standard with new 3.0-inch FOX Racing Shox with custom internal bypass technology. The new Raptor is powered by a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that generates around 450 horsepower, which is a nice increase compared to the current model’s 411-hp 6.2L V8. The V6 will also be mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
