2021 Ford ‘F-150 Raptor’ prototype- spied with a V-8 Engine

The greatest inquiry encompassing the next generation Ford F-150 Raptor has been the powerplant. The current, second-gen Raptor utilizes Ford’s 3.5-liter twin-super V-6, putting out a good 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of force. Yet, since the time that age dispatched, fans have been pining for a V-8, similar to the main gen, which offered either a 5.4 or a 6.2-liter eight.

Fans, rejoice. This covert agent video most importantly however affirms what we’ve since quite a while ago expected: A V-8 will return of the Raptor in 2021.

Captured close to Roush Performance office in Allen Park, MI, this reasonably covered Raptor model games the refreshed highlights of the recently updated 2021 F-150. In any case, as the truck pulls from our government agent picture taker’s camcorder, we hear the obvious thunder of a major inch V-8 motor.

Everything adds up. Since toward the end of last year, it’s been supposed that Ford will offer two motor choices in the new Raptor, and past covert operative video demonstrated models with exhaust notes showing another turbocharged six-cylinder.

Furthermore, our covert operative picture taker clarifies another detail: Roush was engaged with the advancement of the Mustang Shelby GT500’s supercharged 760-hp V-8.

Could this mean the following Raptor will offer a version of the GT500’s monster engine? The proof appears to point toward that path. Furthermore, we should not fail to remember, with Ram currently conveying 702-hp Hellcat-powered TRX pickups, we’re sure that Ford needs to match or beat the bar for high-horsepower off-roaders.

One source advises our covert agent picture taker to expect as much as 725 hp out of the new Raptor, possibly 750. That would unquestionably compensate for the way the new TRX beats the current Raptor in a race.
