Information on the composition of the motor range for the “charged” full-size pickup truck Ford F-150 Raptor 2021 model year has appeared on the Web. It is expected that the version of the long-awaited novelty with a V8 engine, which will be positioned as the most powerful, will be quite expensive.

According to overseas publication The Fast Lane Trucks, Ford will offer a high-performance 2021 F-150 Raptor pickup with two engines. One of them will be a supercharged V8. This rumor aligns with previous insider reports on the upcoming Raptor. According to our sources, the powerful American novelty will get the same supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that powers the Mustang Shelby GT500 sports coupe. In the case of the latter, this engine produces between 725 and 750 horsepower.

Fast Lane Trucks also added that the pickup version with the powerful supercharged V8 will be limited in number – it will be a kind of special edition F-150 that will also be “special” for the price.

If the price of another high-performance V8-powered Ram TRX pickup is close to six figures, you can expect a similar performance of the Ford Raptor to carry a hefty price tag as well.

According to insiders, in addition to the supercharged V8 engine, the new generation of high-performance Ford Raptor will also receive a twin-turbo V6 with a hybrid system – such a power plant will allegedly be called Power Boost and will be similar (if not the same) to the one installed in the premium crossover Lincoln Aviator. It is a hybrid 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that develops 494 hp (465 Nm)

The presentation of the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is set to take place early next year.

Not so long ago, we wrote about the race between the modern Ford F-150 Raptor and the iconic Ford F-150 SVT Lightning. Enthusiasts from the YouTube channel StangMode decided to race between the high-performance Ford F-150 trucks – the 2019 F-150 Raptor and the SVT Lightning, produced for almost 20 years, took part in the race.
