The destiny of Ford is performance
Ford Executive Vice President Jim Farley says business will still wish to expostulate sports cars like a new Mustang Shelby GT500 and Explorer ST even when a marketplace shifts to electric and unconstrained vehicles.
The Ford F-150 Raptor might shortly turn a truly grievous tuck.
Car and Driver and Ford Authority are both stating that a V8 chronicle of a high opening off roader is in a works.
The strange 2010 Raptor featured V8 engines before Ford incited a second-generation indication into a showpiece for a twin-turbocharged Ecoboost V6, that puts out 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.
While that creates it a fastest pickup today, Ram is readying a challenger called a Rebel TRX that could arrive with a 6.2-liter supercharged Hellcat V8 underneath a hood that’s accessible in a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk with 707 hp and with 797 hp in a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye.
To accommodate a challenge, conjecture is that Ford will supply a Raptor with a supercharged 5.2-liter “Predator” V8 from a arriving 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, that a automaker has betrothed will furnish some-more than 700 hp when it debuts after this year.
Ford also recently took a wraps off a 7.3-liter pushrod V8 codenamed “Godzilla” for a super and middle avocation trucks that might be too complicated for a Raptor focus and some-more about torque and towing than horsepower and high speeds … though we never know.
A V8 Raptor already exists in a aftermarket in a form of a Hennessey Performance Velocraptor, that has a 758 hp supercharged V8, though costs $150,000.
The stream F-150 is approaching to be transposed after a 2021 indication year, that would be a ideal time for a super-powered sendoff.
