Date of debut of “charged” Ford F-150 Raptor 2021 has become knownJanuary 14, 2021
The American brand spoke about when it will unveil a new generation of its high-performance Ford F-150 Raptor truck. The newest car should receive a powerful engine from the Mustang sports coupe.
Last year, Ford introduced the next-generation F-150 pickup truck. There was no mention of the “hotter” F-150 Raptor during the presentation. “Spy” photographs of the latter’s prototypes have shown that it is in development, while rumors of its propulsion system continue to circulate. Thankfully, we no longer have to speculate about the new product as Ford has confirmed the new Raptor will debut on February 3rd.
Blue Oval will be streaming live on its YouTube channel.
We should see a new pickup without any camouflage, although we don’t expect a revolution in its design. Although Ford has completely revamped its pickup by 2021, many changes have been made to the sheet metal – and this is expected to happen with the Raptor. The supposedly leaked CAD image of the front of the Raptor showed a very familiar “face”.
Rumors continue to circulate about what will trigger the off-road pickup. Ford currently offers the Raptor with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 developing 450 horsepower (691 Nm), although the Raptor has a new competitor in the Ram TRX which may offer 702 horsepower. A new video (above) captures a prototype of the next-generation Raptor with a booming exhaust sound reminiscent of the rumble of a V8 engine, although we don’t know what that engine is. Rumors indicate that Ford’s 5.2-liter supercharged engine offered in the Mustang Shelby GT500 will be fitted to the charged Raptor. This motor produces 760 hp.
Not so long ago, our publication wrote that a 1972 off-road Ford Bronco with a Shelby V8 Power engine would be auctioned off. This Ford Bronco, which will not fail even on the fiercest off-roading, was made to order.
