New Ford F-150 Raptor spotted in road testsAugust 5, 2020
The new version of the pickup received a very bold and different design from the classic F-150.
Ford unveiled the new F-150 pickup in June. The company is now testing the F-150 Raptor model. Photo spies took pictures of the new F-150 on Wednesday, August 5. Despite the dense layer of camouflage, we managed to see a number of interesting features. The first thing that catches your eye is the new design of the radiator grill, part of which protrudes forward. It is impossible not to notice the new design of headlights – this combination should look very unusual without a camouflage film. But the mesh air intake and the protective plate have a more familiar look.
In the side of the car, the emphasis is on the volumetric wheel arch extensions, as well as rims with a blackout effect. The suspension of the car will receive serious improvements – the pictures managed to capture the coil springs, which have replaced the leaf springs. By redesigning and positioning the exhaust system, Ford engineers were able to increase the vehicle’s ride height. Thanks to the upgrades, the Ford F-150 Raptor will give you more driving comfort.
The interior of the novelty could not be seen, but there should not be too strong differences from the classic version.
The standard Ford F-150 received a large digital instrument cluster, as well as a 12-inch multimedia display. Under the hood of the car will be a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 450 hp output.
As a reminder, in September, customers will be able to assemble the new Ford Bronco SUV using the online configurator. It will be possible to pick up 2-door and 4-door SUVs. The first cars will start shipping to customers in 2021.
