The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor has been revealed with an array of updates. Ford says it is the most off-road capable and connected F-150 Raptor ever.

The fully redesigned pickup gets an all-new five-link rear suspension to improve wheel travel, electronically controlled next-generation FOX shocks with Live Valve tech.

For the first time, the Raptor is available with either 35-inch or 37-inch tires specially designed for all-terrain. They offer maximum traction and handling.

Every Ford F-150 Raptor comes with standard over-the-air updates and a new level of connectivity delivering such features as shareable digital trail maps or other off-road technologies in the future.

The SYNC 4 multimedia system with cloud-connected navigation and voice search, as well as the FordPass mobile app for remote control are available.

The next-gen F-150 Raptor’s high-output third-generation twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine delivers better low-end torque in pair with Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission upgraded with next-generation controls.

The engine comes with an active valve dual exhaust for throatier engine sound. It enables greater max towing and max payload: they increase by 200 pounds to 8,200 lbs and 1,400 lbs, respectively.

The Raptor’s EPA-estimated range is over 500 miles with its standard 36-gallon capacity, on a full tank.

Ford will assemble the 2021 F-150 Raptor at the Dearborn Truck Plant in Dearborn, Michigan. This summer, the model will be arriving at dealers. A hotter Raptor R is coming next year.
