If I had f**k you money, Iíd definitely buy a V8 Raptor and throw a blower on it and make some sort of stupid power through it. Itís completely unnecessary but I could get to Home Depot and back pretty quickly.

I wonder how many people I could take out a cars and coffee meet.

Iím thinking I may do a fully built V8 if this is real. Closed deck, forged all the things, etc. Currie rear end to handle the power, big brake kit, SVC mid travel, etc.

Those people standing in the second and third rows off the curb at cars and coffee thought they were safe...

I sent my dealer an email today asking for info and to get on the list. Got an auto reply. Heís on vacation.

Default Yes No Maybe.. So whatís the deal?

2021 F-150 Raptor Isnít Happening, But A New Model Is Coming Soon (Updated)

When the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 debuted last night, there were quite a few surprises mixed in with some things that we expected all along. But one important thing missing from that grand production, hosted by actor Denis Leary, was any mention of a 2021 F-150 Raptor. Ford Authority reported earlier this year that we didnít expect to see an all-new 2021 F-150 Raptor at all, and now it appears that we were correct.

Ford Authority reached out to Ford Trucks spokesperson Andrew Surma, who confirmed that we will eventually see an F-150 Raptor based on the 14th generation pickup. The only question is when. ďA Raptor is coming for this generation F-150. We will share timing at a later date,Ē Surma said.

What we do know for sure is that all 13th generation F-150 models will be discontinued after the 2020 model year, including the Raptor. In other words, the possibility of the outgoing-generation F-150 Raptor continuing to be offered while development work is done on the all-new model is off the table.

All this shouldnít come as a surprise, since past generations of the F-150 Raptor showed up later in the modelís lifecycle. For instance, the first-generation F-150 Raptor didnít appear until 2009, one year after the 12th-gen F-150 was introduced. The second-gen Raptor debuted for the 2017 model year, two years after the 13th-gen F-150 arrived.

So it seems that we wonít see the F-150 Raptor again until 2022 or 2023, but weíre sure itíll be worth the wait. When the new Raptor does eventually arrive, we expect it to continue the same winning formula Ford derived in the first two generations.

That means a tougher exterior appearance with a unique grille, wider fenders, fender flares, graphics, and knobby tires wrapped around unique wheels.


Under the skin, the next-gen F-150 Raptor will undoubtedly be fitted with a highly-capable long-travel suspension and Fox shocks. Unique drive modes and interior touches, along with available exterior graphics will likely round out the popular model.

The big unknown when it comes to the third-gen F-150 Raptor is what sort of engine(s) itíll be available with. Ford could simply choose to carry on with the 3.5L EcoBoost V6, or perhaps it will also offer customers the option of a 5.0L Coyote V8.

More likely, weíd expect the all-new full-hybrid 3.5L PowerBoost drivetrain to be available on the new Raptor, as it will be with the rest of the F-150 lineup. Fordís 10-speed automatic transmission will likely remain the sole transmission choice.

Update: some outlets are reporting that there will be an F-150 Raptor available for the 2021 model year. Weíve reached out to Ford for comment and will update this story if/when we hear back.

Theyíve already done a release. Itís the Hellcat TRX. 700ho V8 supercharged. Itís suppose to go on sale late summer I believe. Iíll definitely be checking it out. I can see a lot of Raptor owners jumping ship.

Yep, I'll be one of those likely jumping ship. Tired of the V6 sound in my 2018. If the next gen Raptor ups their game and tops the TRX I'll go back, but right now the TRX is really appealing to me (barring seeing the final thing of course).

I honestly donít mind the sound of the turbo 6 in the raptor. Although, I would prefer a blown V8. Iíd also like them to improve the paddle shift mapping and speed. In Baja mode manual, it shifts decently fast for what it is but still kinda a gimmick. I do enjoy my raptor though.

Hopefully. The 7.3lt is really not impressive with how it is now but it was also designed for towing longevity so I could see them tuning it for all out performance.

I have a hard time using the paddle shifters on my Raptor. I'm spoiled by the GT3RS and 600LT.

I do like my Raptor as well, but I want more power

Would a revised Coyote with supercharger do the trick?

The paddle shifters are not that well placed and definitely need to be extended an inch or so outwards. While my M2 was certainly no GT3RS or 600LT, the shifters were appropriately placed. I was debating on buying aftermarket set to enlarge them and I think they move out a 1/4 inch.

Probably would although I think a blown coyote at 700hp would significantly shorten and create reliability issues. The 7.3 engine is a damn good engine. Itís just been conservatively tuned so that it last 250k miles of heavy towing. You could like have it making 700hp supercharged and it would last 100k miles or more, Iíd assume. The 7.3lt doesnít sound that awesome though which is kind of disappointing.

I honestly wouldn’t trust anything at the power level to last long.

I can remember when people thought the same thing about 350-400hp v8ís. Direct injection has opened up more possibilities, dual port direct even more so. I sure as hell wouldnít own one out of warranty but I also refuse to own anything without a warranty or extended warranty unless Iím going to modify it, which I havenít done in probably 13 or so years.

Vehicles are so damn complicated today that owning anything out of warranty is out for me.

Placement is part of it, but the shifting is just so slow that it seems like a total gimmick to me. I find I get bored manually shifting on the Raptor so I end up just putting it in D.

On the other two I always manually shift.

GM is working on fitting a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 into its full-size pickup platforms; given that such an engine makes 650 horsepower in the Camaro ZL1 and made 755 in the dearly-departed Corvette ZR1, it seems likely that such a motor would be more than potent enough to help this Chevrolet fight the Hellcat-powered Ram Rebel TRX and any more-powerful Raptors that Ford might reveal - Rumor has it Ford may ultimately counter that by packing the Raptorís engine bay with its new 7.3-liter V8 known internally as ďGodzilla,Ē thus pushing the saurian one-upsmanship about as far as it can go.
Competition and such
