F-150 Raptor: Preying on the Competition

Ford has a knack for producing trucks that excite and draw enthusiasts more than any other truck maker. The following for the SVT Lightning line of trucks remains almost as large as the following for the legendary Ford Mustang. Ford hit another homerun with the F-150 Raptor. For 2018, the Raptor is even more impressive than the version introduced in 2010.

The biggest change, which is also the biggest asset of the 2018 Raptor, is the engine. Ford opted for an intercooled twin-turbo EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 for this year’s model. The twin-turbo spools out a monstrous 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. This is more power than the massive 6.2-liter V8 it replaces. The high strung EcoBoost turns the Raptor into a sort of Jekyll and Hyde, allowing for impressive economy and refinement in daily driving, but primal raw performance on the trail or track. Combined with the Fox off-road racing shocks, the 2018 F-150 Raptor is a purpose built off-road beast that dominates on-road and off.
