Under the Hood
Powering the 2021 F-150 Raptor is a next-generation 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost high-output V6 engine producing 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque. Power gets delivered to the massive wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission. Maximum payload has been increased to 1,400 pounds, while towing bumps up to an impressive 8,200 pounds. The V6 generates plenty of power, so this Raptor is certainly never lacking motivation, but we do miss the sound of a big V8 engine emanating from beneath the hood. Granted, the Raptor’s exhaust note sounds fine with the EcoBoost, but it’s simply not the same aural experience.
