Official: the next Ford F-150 Raptor will get a V6
Is this good or bad news?
Against the new RAM 1500 TRX, with its impressive 6.2-litre HEMI V8 engine delivering a whopping 707 PS, the Ford F-150 Raptor must now equip itself to fight, as it has long been unrivaled. Good news, the next generation is fast approaching.
Needless to say, fans are eagerly waiting for the vehicle. In addition to the obvious technological improvement brought by the fourteenth generation of the iconic pickup truck, the future F-150 Raptor will surprise under its hood. After countless rumors, the vehicle will officially adopt the current model's 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6.
Disappointment can already be seen on the faces of aficionados. They can be reassured that this V6 version could be paired with a more muscular model equipped with a V8 to effectively counter the RAM 1500 TRX. If this V8-powered variant is confirmed, however, it will arrive a few months after the presentation of the vehicle.
This juicy information comes from the f150gen14 website. As a reminder, the current Ford F-150 Raptor has a 3.5-litre V6 producing 456 PS and 692 Nm of torque. The future V6 F-150 Raptor will logically improve these figures and will approach the 500 PS mark. The new Ford F-150 Raptor will be introduced in the coming months.
