The unit found under the hood of the recently unveiled Ford F-150 Raptor has been recently detailed.
The Ford F-150 Raptor has been officially presented to the public a few weeks back, during the 2015 North American International Auto Show, but the car manufacturer was cheap on providing us with performance details on it. Ford is currently keeping the unit in question in the shadows at this time but according to a recent report, published by the guys from Automobile, the vehicle in question will be getting a 3.5 liter V6 engine under its hood. This is capable of producing no less than 450 HP (331 kW), but its torque figure remains unknown for the moment.
The new engine will be basically more powerful than the 6.2 liter V8, with its 416 HP (306 kW) and 587 Nm (434 lb-ft) of torque. The unit will be connected to a brand new 10-speed automatic transmission, which will be sending the power to the all-wheel drive system. The new Ford F-150 Raptor is easily recognizable as it is coming with a prominent mesh grille, with ventilated front fenders, a rugged front bumper, LED headlights, unique tailgate, silver skid plate, exclusive dual exhaust system, the BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires wrapping the 17-inch alloy wheels and so on. The model is also getting the Terrain Management System, offering driving modes such as the Normal, Street, Weather (Rain, Snow and Ice), Mud / Sand, Baja and Rock, along with the optional Torsen front differential.
