The upcoming Ford F-150 Raptor is expected to be an even more powerful and off-road capable vehicle than the current generation. In fact, rumors suggest that this rugged truck will have a spirited engine that surpasses even the engine of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX comes with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that delivers best-in-class 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. However, the next generation of the Ford F-150 Raptor may soon take away the Ram truck’s best-in-class titles with its new engine.
The F-150 Raptor might add the supercharged 5.2-liter V8, which could pump out anywhere from 725 horsepower to 750 horsepower, making for a more enjoyable drive than the Ram 1500 TRX offers. This engine currently comes standard on the athletic 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500®.
Other rumors suggest that the F-150 Raptor will have an updated coil spring setup in place of its leaf spring suspension. This would allow the truck to better compete with the Ram 1500 TRX, which has a five-link coil suspension.
The Ford F-150 Raptor may have limited availability in the 2021 model year or arrive in the 2022 model year. Stay tuned to our blog for more updates on this truck, or give us a call at Sour Lake Ford in Sour Lake, Texas, if you’d like to get your hands on the current F-150.
