A brand new 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is coming quickly, but we already knew that. What we’re unsure of is when it’s going to arrive.
Ford spokeswoman Dawn McKenzie confirmed the off-road, high-performance pickup would arrive for 2021, simply hours after the set for the brand new F-150’s reveal was closed and earlier than Denis Leary might choose what F-150 could be his finest man. Motor1 first reported the story.

McKenzie confirmed to Motor Authority the brand new Raptor could be primarily based on the newly launched 2021 Ford F-150.
“Yes, we are going to introduce a brand new Raptor. We may have extra to share at a later date,” McKenzie stated in an emailed assertion.
A brand new F-150 Raptor is sort of as sure because the solar rising within the morning, though many assumed that the truck’s reveal could be staggered till a couple of 12 months after the brand new truck arrived. That occurred with the last-generation Raptor, and the unique Raptor adopted in 2011 after the debut of a brand new F-150 for 2010, but it is not occurring this time.
Not a lot is understood concerning the new Raptor apart from that it’ll exist. Ram is quickly to launch a competitor to the Raptor, the TRX, which can have bumped up any timeline for Ford. The outgoing Raptor was powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 that made 450 horsepower. The Ram TRX could have as much as 707 horsepower from a 6.2-liter supercharged V-8. The pickup arms race does not sleep, and there have been murmurs from Dearborn that the corporate’s supercharged 5.2-liter V-Eight could seem in an upcoming Raptor.
We’ll have to attend to see. Stay tuned.
