Introduced 750 hp onboard Ford F-150 Raptor.September 12, 2020
The American tuning company PaxPower has unveiled an upgraded version of the full-size Ford F-150 Raptor truck. In addition to numerous changes in appearance, in particular the onboard cargo platform, the car boasts a 750-horsepower supercharged engine.
Even before the 2021 Ram TRX arrived, supercharged V8 trucks were already popular – they were used to equip Ram’s main rival, the full-size Ford F-150 pickup. It turns out that the PaxPower tuning studio has been producing similar versions of trucks from the “blue oval” for several years.
The latest creation of the Texas tuner is the Ford F-150 converted into an onboard Raptor. It’s a one-of-a-kind car, at least that’s what the company says, and it has a few (I think it’s noticeable enough) upgrades beyond the Stage 2 Whipple supercharger, which boosts the standard engine’s power output to 750 horsepower.
Obvious upgrades include custom body panels as well as FabFours Aero bumper, Method wheels, Toyo tires and Borla exhaust, which were chosen by the owner of this truck.
This custom cargo platform with a lightweight aluminum structure was built by the guys from the TurnKey Industries team. It has several attachment points and is designed to transport various types of goods, such as tanks, welding machines, snowmobiles or even a camper with a platform.
Representatives of the PaxPower studio claim that the carrying capacity of the full-size pickup has increased, but did not disclose the exact numbers. However, the company mentioned that payload capacity has been increased by the midsize airbag system by 2,267.96kg for the rear suspension. The tuner claims this damping system also provides a “soft everyday ride”.
PaxPower did not disclose the price of such a truck upgrade from Ford, but we suspect it will not come cheap.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that there were photos of a Ford Bronco SUV in a powerful version of the Raptor. The American company is testing a more off-road version of the Ford Bronco, which will traditionally receive the Raptor designation. Among other things, the car boasts increased ground clearance and wide fenders.
