As we suspected, they haven’t been increased for the all-new model, so we’re still looking at 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. But the torque is delivered better at lower RPM, which has increased towing capacity on the 2021 Raptor to 8,200 lbs – 200 lbs more than the old model – and maximum payload to 1,400 lbs. The Raptor gets a 500-mile EPA-rated range estimate, and ought to sound like a proper performance truck thanks to its active valve dual exhaust.
Ford has also revealed that the Raptor will come with OTA updates and a new feature that enables the sharing of digital trail maps. It’ll do this via the standard SYNC 4 infotainment system, which is able to fully integrate with owners’ smartphones thanks to the latest FordPass mobile app technology.
The Raptor’s build and price website will be going live today, so buyers can fully configure their Raptor and place orders with dealers officially. Notably, Ford didn’t provide us with any new information on the Raptor R, once again merely teasing us with the fact that this V8-powered Ram TRX fighter will be arriving next year.
