Ford released the power and torque specs for the third generation 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor, and surprisingly they remained the same. The company is continuing with the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 that produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound per feet of torque.
Buyers can upgrade for a high-output 3.5 EcoBoost engine producing 450 horsepower at 5850 rpm and 510 pound per feet of torque at 3000 rpm. The lower torque allows the Raptor to tow and haul more with both payload and towing capacities increasing. Both increased by two hundred pounds to 1400 pounds and 8200 pounds.
If that’s not the news you wanted to hear, the Raptor R is on its way next year. It is expected to run a new version of the Predator supercharged 5.2-liter V-8, from the Mustang Shelby GT500, producing more than 760 horsepower and 625 pound per feet of torque.
Orders are now open for the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor with pricing starting at $65,840. That’s over $10,000 more expensive than the previous model, but it’s now only available as a four-door SuperCrew model.
