At the 46th annual Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction, the final 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is set to be auctioned off to one lucky bidder. The news comes from Ford, today, who states that the proceeds of this auction lot will benefit JDRF, an organization that funds type 1 diabetes research.

We’re really looking forward to auctioning off our custom creation to help support JDRF.” Additionally, Mark Fields, president and CEO of Ford Motor Company, is also looking to announce Raptor Assault. What's that? Ford says it's a new opportunity for 2017 Raptor buyers, allowing them to attend the Ford Performance Racing School starting in April. Ford will provide a one-day course for free, which will include instruction on how to rock crawl and more.
