We’ve been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor for months. Now, we’re only a few days away from the truck’s official launch, and we’re fresh off a pretty revealing teaser video that just dropped yesterday. It’s a pretty safe bet that a lot of people will want to watch the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor reveal as it’s happening, so we’re here to make that process easy.
Blue Oval fans will be able to watch the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor reveal live on February 3rd, 2021, at 11 am EST on Ford’s YouTube channel. The automaker has not yet provided a link for the video, as it often does days ahead of its reveals, but we should have it soon and will provide it here when we do, so be sure and bookmark this page.
The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor reveal will certainly be must-see TV given what we already know about the third-generation off-roader. Based on the all-new 14th generation 2021 Ford F-150, the next-gen Raptor will obviously feature many of the same goodies the new F-150 has to offer, including a heavily revised interior. But perhaps the most exciting thing about the 2021 Raptor is the fact that it will once again be available with a V8, as Ford Authority exclusively reported back in 2019.
But the new Raptor won’t just be packing Ford’s 5.0L Coyote V8 or even the 7.3L Godzilla V8. Instead, as we reported last August, the rugged off-road pickup will in fact be the recipient of a slightly detuned version of the Ford 5.2L Predator V8 used in the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, producing somewhere between 725 and 750 horsepower.
The next-gen Raptor will also be available with a modified version of Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which is the sole powerplant offered in the current-gen Raptor. However, it’s the V8 version that’s bound to attract the most attention from enthusiasts, and it sounds great, as we’ve heard on not just one, but two separate occasions recently.
In addition to those V8-powered models, we’ve also spied a number of F-150 Raptor prototypes in recent months that have revealed the forthcoming pickup’s cool off-road tech features and new coil spring suspension setup.
