2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Rumored to Pack 450 HP

A leaked document could have just revealed the specifications for the highly anticipated 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.

A user on FordRaptorForum.com has posted screenshots from Ford’s eSourceBook application showing that the high-output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine being used in the new Raptor will produce 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. Compared to the outgoing 6.2-liter V8 engine, the new V6 mill has 39 hp and 76 lb-ft of torque more.

The numbers are realistic, considering the new Ford F-150 has a variant with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 making 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque.

Another detail that was part of the leak shows that the new Raptor will have a towing capacity of 8,000 pounds, matching the last-generation model.

The American automaker has yet to confirm these figures, but we can expect more information as we get closer to the truck’s launch this fall.

    the HP and Torque figures are far higher than even the Triton V10 in a 20 foot Uhaul van.
    that is serious business

    Well, to be honest, that ancient 10 is disappointing (EcoBoost)-six ways to sunday. VERY uncompetitive, IMHO.
