After the new Ford Ranger arrived, the company is already testing a high-performance version of the truck that is going to replace it. Its bodywork is quite similar to its predecessor, but it seems to be a future model based because of its camouflaged interior and rear suspension.
It was recently revealed that Ford is making a Raptor with the Mustang GT500’s 5.2-liter supercharged V-8. This will replace the current generation in the year 2021 or 2022.
It is also told that it will have a supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 is slated to generate more than 700 horsepower in its Mustang Shelby GT500 application, this new V-8 will provide a same comparable amount of power in the Raptor pickup. With this, Ford can counter Ram’s planned TRX pickup which has been confirmed to have supercharged Hellcat V-8 engine that makes upward of 700 horsepower.
Ram is likely to get the jump on Ford in terms of timing, as the TRX is slated for a debut sometime in 2020. 2020 Ford Raptor will release sometime late 2020. The price of the base model will be $54,450, and the V-8 version is going to be around $70,000.
