Ford Unleashes 2021 F-150 Raptor Horsepower, Torque Numbers

Interestingly, the 2021 Ford Raptor isnt the truck thats been breaking the internet for Dearborn lately. Thats been the job of the new F-150 Lightning and the new Maverick compact pickup truck. Its still a beloved member of Fords truck lineup, and it (along with the rest of the F-150 range ) received some major updates for 2021. More aggressive bodywork, 37-inch tires, and a new five-link rear end were among the improvements, but it turns out that extra power wont be. --> The 2021 Ford Raptor will make 450 horsepower at 5,850 rpm and 510 lb-ft of torque at 3,000 rpm from a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6. Those figures are identical to the previous generation Raptor that ditched the old 6.2-liter V-8 in favor of the EcoBoost V-6. That might come as a slight disappointment to hardcore Raptor fans, especially after the Raptor was overshadowed by the new Ram 1500 TRXs 702-hp 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 . But worry not. Fords got something planned for the TRX, too: the upcoming Raptor R , rumored to make somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 horsepower. Thats the truck that will do battle with our current Truck of the Year. The 5.2-liter V-8 thats expected to sit under the hood of the Raptor R will likely be based on the Predator engine thats in the Shelby GT500 , which cranks out 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torquealbeit detuned for Raptor duty. If you dont want to wait for the Raptor R, or cant be bothered with the horsepower wars that are going on between Ford and Ram at the moment, the order books for the regular Raptor, which starts at$65,840, will open up tomorrow.
