Overview

The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor aims lớn fly higher, pound across the desert faster, and look meaner than its predecessor. This all-new, third-generation Raptor remains a bulkier toàn thân double of the regular F-150, which means they chia sẻ technology và several innovative features. However, Ford"s high-performance pickup truck is also fitted with impressive off-road equipment, such as a sophisticated long-travel suspension and available 37-inch all-terrain tires. Assisting the Raptor"s powerful twin-turbo V-6 is a paddle-shifted 10-speed automatic transmission and standard all-wheel drive. Though its engine produces 450 horsepower, that"s still relatively wimpy compared with the 702-hp Hellcat V-8 in the Ram 1500 TRX. That"s why Ford is developing an even more ferocious Raptor R that should mark the return of a raucous V-8 engine that earns it entry into the 700-hp club.
