Ford F-150 We’re really looking forward to Ford revealing the power of the new Raptor F150. The company introduced the truck in February but hasn’t revealed details like horsepower, torque, or 60 mph sprint just yet.
However, thanks to information from Ford’s RV towing guide and the 2021 trailer first spotted by “detectives” in a TFL truck, we can find out how much horsepower the new Raptor will produce. The (HO) engine produces 450 horsepower (336 kilowatts) and the same 510 foot-pounds (691 newton-meters) of torque as last year.
The only difference is that peak power won’t reach up to 5,850 rpm, compared to just 5,000 rpm on the old version, but torque can peak at 3,000 rpm instead of the 3 500 rpm min of the previous model.

The graphics also confirm that the new tweak allows for a maximum towing of up to 8,200 lbs and a maximum payload of 1,400 lbs, we already know when the truck launches. These numbers represent a 200 lb increase in both cases, compared to the previous Raptor.
But more importantly, we are still waiting for confirmation from Ford regarding the horsepower and torque values of the truck, so for those of you who want a Raptor with additional horsepower, don’t worry. Ford will also launch the mighty Raptor R, which features a supercharged V8 and around 700 hp (522 kW).
We’ve seen spy photos of the supercharged truck testing the streets near Ford’s Michigan headquarters, and even heard its incredible engine roar via camera. The new Ford F-150 Raptor will go on sale later this year with a starting price of US$64,145 (Rp913.7 million), which is an increase of more than US$10,000 (Rp142.4 million) over its predecessor.
However, it should be noted that Ford offered the previous version in the base Supercab trim. While the new Raptor will only come in the form of a Crew Cab.
- Lots of engine options including petrol, diesel and hybrid options
- Amazing maximum towing capacity, even from the hybrid version
- Easy-to-use infotainment system
- Lots of features available, including an onboard generator
Whenever there’s a remade Ford F-150, it’s a big case. After all, the F-150 has dominated mount sales to the United States for decades. So this is where we use the remade 2021 F-150. There have been no revolutionary changes to the construction this year, not like in 2015 when Ford unveiled the aluminum body panels in the F-150.
On the other hand, Ford is serious about upgrading the truck in other ways. Examples include a new hybrid powertrain, a powerful onboard generator, and an updated interior using a new infotainment system.
Ford calls the powertrain the flagship PowerBoost. It consists of an optional 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 which is paired with a hybrid system to provide an impressive combination of powerful energy and high fuel economy. Also new to the 2021 F-150 is the Pro Power Onboard system.
It’s an onboard power generator that lets you power tools and equipment whether you’re mute or driving. You can plug it into any of the regular F-150 petrol engines, but it will still spin using the hybrid powertrain, at which point it can make up to 7,200 watts.
As usual, most of the F-150’s appeal comes from its seemingly endless variety of configurations. Whether you’re looking for a regular work truck, a fully loaded luxury cruiser or an off-road car that can be taken anywhere, there’s a version of the F-150 that fits your needs and requirements.
It’s true that Chevrolet, GMC & Ram have completely revamped their pickups over the last few years, providing further refinements & new feature tricks. But this new F-150 is already leading the way & is our Top Rated Edmunds Truck for 2021. Check out our in-depth rating categories by our F-150 Expert Rating to investigate further.
New Ford F-150 Release Date and Price
Just Launched One Day, Ford F-150 Lightning Sold 20 Thousand Units The Ford F-150 Lightning electric truck immediately attracted people’s interest after only one day being launched & introduced globally.
According to a report submitted by Hindustan Time, the Ford F-150 Lightning electric truck was ordered for 20,000 units just 24 hours after its launch.

Ford itself is currently reportedly looking for a big challenge to compete using well-known car brands, such as Volkswagen & Tesla.
The Tesla Cybertruck is one of the electric trucks that can compete with the Ford F-150 Lightning. But since Tesla’s electric pickup isn’t launching any time soon, the Ford F-150 Lightning could take the lead.

It is also known that this electric pickup has an energy of approximately 563 hp and a torque of more than 1,000 Nm. The Ford F-150 Lightning was also evaluated to reach 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.
