The guys from Ford are working on a high-performance version of the F-150 pickup of the current generation. The car will be presented at the end of 2020.

The current version of the Ford Raptor, which is the “charged” version of the American full-size F-150 pickup, is a good car in terms of high power and good off-road skills. But apparently the guys from Ford is not enough.

Foreign edition Car & Driver, referring to Ford’s own sources, says that the special edition of Raptor can be presented within the next year.

It is reported that the current version of the F-150 pickup should be replaced by a completely new generation, which will be presented at about the same time, thus it turns out that the upcoming Raptor will be the last powerful performance for the current generation of American trucks. It is known that such a car will be equipped with the same 5.2-liter supercharged V8, which is located under the hood of the high-performance Mustang Shelby GT500.

 In this version, the maximum power of the motor is 700 horsepower. It seems to us, yes, we are almost sure that the engineers of the American brand will not change the engine power for a high-performance pickup truck. Insiders report that the new version of the Raptor will cost somewhere around $ 70,000, which once again confirms their intention to compete with the Ram Rebel TRX pick-up (model 1500) that is “charged”. Both trucks are likely to come in limited editions. New from Ford is likely to be presented at the end of 2020.

  It is very interesting to see how Chevrolet will react to this confrontation of powerful trucks. After all, their pickup Chevrolet Silverado competes directly with the above vehicles.

Not so long ago, we wrote that the owners of Ford Explorer file a class action lawsuit against the company.
