2021 Ford F-150 Raptor Horsepower And Torque Numbers Potentially Revealed

Ford revealed the 2021 F-150 Raptor back in February, and since then, we’ve learned pretty much everything there is to know about the third-generation of the automaker’s rugged off-road pickup. However, one important detail remains a secret2021 Ford F-150 Raptor horsepower and torque figures. Now, thanks to Ford’s 2021 F-150 RV and Trailer Towing Guide, those numbers may have already leaked.

Unfortunately, if this information is correct, 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor horsepower and torque figures are identical to the outgoing, second-gen model. That means Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 H.O. powerplant is rated to produce 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. However, looking closer at the numbers, we can see that the new Raptor makes its peak horsepower at a higher rpm than the old one – 5,850 versus 5,000 – and peak torque comes in at 3,000 rpm versus 3,500 for the outgoing model.

Ford did previously reveal that the 2021 F-150 Raptor will tow up to 8,200 pounds, with a 1,400-pound max payload capacity, figures that are also confirmed in the guide. Additionally, the chart notes that these figures are for the “Raptor only.” Thus, it certainly seems like these numbers are accurate, though they have yet to be officially announced by Ford, outside of their presence here.

Raptor fans will undoubtedly be a bit disappointed by the fact that Ford hasn’t given the truck a boost in power for the new generation, but we must also remember that a much more powerful Ford F-150 Raptor R is coming in 2022. As Ford Authority was the first to report, the Raptor R will be powered by Ford’s supercharged 5.2L Predator V8, producing around 750 horsepower. It also sounds pretty amazing, too.

As Ford Authority previously reported, 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor order books are scheduled to open up on June 10th. Pricing starts out at $64,145, plus an additional $1,695 for destination and delivery.

    While it would be nice to have a bump in power, 450/510 is a lot of power while still getting livable mileage With the peak torque coming in lower and HP higher, it should feel and be quicker also. We are spoiled by crazy HP numbers these days. I guess the same can be said for the 5.0 tho they keep that lower to boost Ecoboost sales That could easily be a 450hp engine. It’s still the engine to get if you want to go big with almost any supercharger pushing it over 600hp easily, and up.
