By TIM SACCOAssociated PressIOWA, Iowa (AP) Ford’s first-generation Ford Raptors have received some major facelifts in an effort to improve safety and improve fuel economy, and some have also been updated to accommodate new technologies.
The redesigned Raptor is getting a new body kit and an all-new headliner, and Ford says the vehicle is now as fuel-efficient as a midsize sedan.
The automaker says it is also introducing a new, higher-capacity engine, which will be available for use in the new Raptor.
The Raptor was designed to be the world’s most fuel-injected vehicle, and it will be produced for a price of $27,500, which is $1,200 less than the 2015 model year.
It will also be equipped with new front seats, a rear bench seat and a rear-mounted, electric-powered steering wheel.
The new Raptors will be manufactured at a plant in Jackson, Iowa.
The company says it will use the new body kits for both the new Ford model and the 2015 Ford.
Ford said the new vehicle will be built on a new platform, with a new engine, new body parts and new wiring.
The Raptor will be delivered in 2018.
The company says the new headliner and body kit are available now, but are available only as an optional add-on to the base model.
The new headliners will be offered in all-black or black-and-white, depending on the color of the vehicle’s exterior trim.
