A video has appeared on a foreign YouTube channel showing a camouflaged prototype of a high-performance Ford F-150 Raptor pickup 2021 model year. The car was in a traffic jam. The video makes it possible to listen to the menacing sound of the exhaust.

Automotive publications have discovered a camouflaged prototype of the new Ford F-150 in the powerful Raptor. While we could certainly do without music playing in the background, this is a good opportunity to take a closer look at the fast-paced 2021 Ford F-150.

The F-150 Raptor stops at a red light and you can hear the sound of its powerful exhaust. We tend to believe that there is a V6 engine under the hood because the test car seems to be devoid of the typical grumbling that is inherent in V8 engines. This does not mean that a larger engine is out of the question, as according to recent rumors, Ford plans to offer buyers the opportunity to purchase the new product with both V6 and V8 engines.

According to rumors, the version of the “charged” pickup with a V6 engine will have somewhere around 494 hp. (854 Nm) in the same vein as the plug-in hybrid Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring using an electrified 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6.

If this turns out to be true, we will see a massive 44bhp increase in power. (162 Nm) compared to the old Raptor.

It still won’t be enough to battle the new rebel in the market – the 2021 Ram TRX. Ford is expected to have a 702bhp response. and 650 lb-ft offered by the Hellcat’s 6.2-liter V8. This is where the Mustang Shelby GT500’s 5.2-liter supercharged V8 supposedly comes into play. Blue Oval insiders claim that it will produce at least 725 hp. or as much as 750 hp, which is only 10 hp. less than that of the top pony car. There is not a word about torque.

Regardless of engine choice, the next generation Raptor will likely be offered exclusively with a 10-speed automatic, as is the case with the regular F-150. The powerful pickup will go on sale as new for the 2021 model year, which means that the car could officially debut before the end of this year.

Not so long ago, we wrote that Ford talked about what to expect from the hybrid version of the F-150 pickup 2021. The press service of the brand published a video showing the numerous stages of testing a hybrid version of the full-size pickup Ford F-150 2021 model of the year.
