Ford today debuted the Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew offroad performance truck in Beijing. The automaker is planning to sell the Raptor in China starting in 2017.

F-150 Raptor represents the very best of what Ford can accomplish with its world-class engineering and design teams, and its long history of building tough, capable and versatile trucks,” said Ford Performance Global Chief Program Engineer Jamal Hameedi. “We are thrilled to offer our customers in China the chance to experience new levels of off-road performance with the all-new F-150 Raptor.”

As in the US, China’s Ford F-150 Raptor will be powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, expected to accomplish higher output than its predecessor’s 411 horsepower, 6.2-liter V8. A fully-boxed frame made of high-strength steel, as well as a body made from military grade aluminum alloy, will come standard.

Also standard will be the F-150 Raptor’s new four-wheel-drive, torque-on-demand transfer case, and Fox Racing Shox with custom internal-bypass technology. A Torsen front differential will be available as an option.

“F-150 Raptor is the ultimate showcase of the tough capability available throughout Ford’s family of trucks and SUVs,” said Ford China Chairman and CEO John Lawler. “By introducing it to the world’s largest auto market, we hope to inspire a new generation of off-road enthusiasts, and demonstrate how we are always bringing our customers new innovations.”
