PSA - 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition in FM7 Available
The team at Turn 10 has been busy, and they have something special for fans of Forza Motorsport 7. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Xbox One X Edition is a free gift for all players. With a custom livery based on Xbox One X’s codename “Project Scorpio” and numerous performance-minded upgrades, this Raptor is ready to intimidate all opponents in Forza Motorsport 7.
In terms of the lead up to this in-game release, there is a story regarding the real F-150 Xbox One X Edition. This story began with Ford Performance’s announcement of the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor at the 2015 North American International Auto Show. Later in the year, Ford Performance saw success in the Raptor race truck at the Baja 1000, finishing third. This success led to the debut of the truck at the 2017 SEMA (Specialty Equipment Manufacturer’s Association) show in Las Vegas, where over-the-top custom vehicles are king and the Xbox One X Edition Ford F-150 fit right in.
While the truck is significantly taller than stock – over 93 inches tall (2.3 meters) on 38 inch BF Goodrich Krawler T/A tires – the team behind the Xbox One X Raptor still wanted it to retain the race truck’s Baja-tested performance characteristics. The Raptor’s livery was designed by illustrator Hydro74 and features a stylized “Project Scorpio” scorpion motif. Look closely and you can see that the scorpion’s body includes many details from Xbox One X, including the thumb sticks, d-pad, and ABXY buttons.
