- ford has confirmed the 2021 ford f-150 raptor's power and torque figures, and they're the same as the previous generation.
- the twin-turbo 3.5-liter v-6 produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.
- the new f-150 raptor will be available to order tomorrow, june 10, starting at $65,840.
the ford f-150 raptor is now in its third generation, and it continues to use a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter v-6 from the previous generation. we expected the carryover engine to make slightly more power than before, but now ford has confirmed the numbers, and they're unchanged. but don't forget that the raptor r is coming next year.
the high-output 3.5 ecoboost engine produces 450 horsepower at 5850 rpm and 510 pound-feet of torque at 3000 rpm. the previous model made peak power at 5000 rpm and peak torque at 3500. the low-end torque helps the raptor tow and haul more with both payload and towing capacities increasing by 200 pounds to 1400 pounds and 8200 pounds. the new model has an equal-length exhaust system with muffler bypass valves that'll provide for a much better sound.
ford has also confirmed that a more powerful raptor r is on the way, and we've heard it testing a few times. it's expected to have more than 700 horsepower from a version of the predator supercharged 5.2-liter v-8 that makes 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque in the mustang shelby gt500. it should look more aggressive, too, and it'll have its sights set on the 702-hp ram 1500 trx.
orders for the 2021 ford f-150 raptor will open tomorrow, june 10, and pricing starts at $65,840. that's $10,690 more expensive than before because it's now only available as a four-door supercrew model.
