2021 Ford F-150 Raptor Is Underway, on Sale Next Year

The off-road Raptor version will join the new 2021 Ford F-150 lineup. Ford should share some official info soon.

Outside changes will include new headlight design, a unique front grille, a revised front bumper, skid plates. Compared with the regular F-150, this version has a wider body and larger fender flare.

The new Raptor will possibly adopt a coil-spring rear suspension instead of leaf springs of the usual 2021 Ford F-150.

And, of course, off-road features should be present on the next-generation vehicle, such as optional bead-lock wheels and front-axle Torsen differential, as well as beefy tires.

Expect the interior will carry over to the Raptor from the F-150, meaning a 12.0-inch infotainment screen, Sync 4, modified center console and instrument cluster.

The powertrain choices are unknown for the moment. They could include an upgraded more powerful version of the current twin-turbo 3.5-liter six-cylinder 450-hp engine, a hybrid system, like on the standard 2021 Ford F-150, and the GT500’s supercharged 5.2-liter V8.

There were some rumors it would be added to the F-150 Raptor’s  model range. A 10-speed automatic transmission will likely remain for the 2021 model.

Expect the market launch of the new Ford F-150 Raptor somewhen in 2021.
