According to khabarkhodro.It sounds great, too.Hennessey has gotten ahold of the 2021 Ford F-150
Raptor. Naturally, the company threw it onto the dyno to see how much power the
3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 was able to send to the rear wheels.
The graph shows the pickup making 361.02 horsepower
(269.21 kilowatts) at 4,990 rpm and 458.92 pound-feet (622.2 Newton-meters) at
3,710 rpm. The factory rating is 450 hp (336 kW) and 510 lb-ft (692 Nm). This
works out to a 19.77 percent loss in horsepower and 10.02 percent loss of
torque between the engine and the wheels.
The 2021 Raptor rides on an overhauled rear suspension
layout compared to the previous version of the truck. The five-link design has
coil springs, long trailing arms and a Panhard rod to have improved more wheel
travel and articulation. There are Fox shocks at each corner.
Ford also now offers 37-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2
tires as an option for maximum grip driving off-road.
The 2021 Raptor starts a $64,145 (plus a $1,695
destination fee). With options, the price can easily top $80,000.
Hennessey has just announced its VelociRaptor 600 upgrade
package for the 2021 Raptor. It pushes the engine's output to 600 hp (447 kW)
and 622 lb-ft (843 Nm) of torque by upgrading the air intake, intercooler, and
engine management. The company is targeting acceleration to 60 miles per hour
(96 kilometers per hour) in 4.2 seconds, versus 5.3 seconds from the factory.
Hennessey charges $85,950 for a complete truck with this
package. Customers can also upgrade a Raptor after taking delivery for $19,950.
Ford is also prepping the more powerful Raptor R for an
arrival in late 2022. It ditches the twin-turbo V6 in favor of the supercharged
5.2-liter V8 from the Mustang Shelby GT500. In this application, the powerplant
reportedly has 725 hp (540 kW) to 750 hp.
