The next-generation Ford F-150 Raptor is coming with a new 3rd-generation twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 whose power figures were unknown at the model reveal, but have just leaked.
Ford unveiled the 2021 F-150 Raptor in February 2021. Order books should open very soon – on June 10. Sales begin this summer. The starting price is $65,840 including a destination and delivery charge. Thus, the truck is $10,690 more expensive than before.
Thanks to Ford’s 2021 F-150 RV and Trailer Towing Guide published by Ford Authority, we’ve found out one important detail – the newcomer’s horsepower and torque numbers. This information is unofficial. Ford has not confirmed it yet, but if the data are true, the model fans may feel disappointed.
The Ford F-150 Raptor’s horsepower and torque figures are the same as before – 450 hp, 510 lb.-ft. No power boost happened, excepting rpm figures: the new vehicle makes its peak power at a higher rpm (revolutions per minute) – 5,850 vs the previous 5,000. The peak torque comes at 3,000 rpm now vs 3,500 rpm for the outgoing F-150 Raptor.
The towing capacity and maximum payload figures in the guide are the same as expected: 8,200 and 1,400 pounds, respectively.
More potent Ford F-150 Raptor R is coming next year, with Ford’s supercharged 5.2L Predator 750-hp V8.
