2017 Ford F-150 Raptor To Have 450 HP And 510 lb-ft

A Ford salesman has revealed that the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor delivers 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.

The salesman posted a picture on the Ford Raptor Forum from a restricted dealer information portal uncovering all the juicy technical details about the pickup.

We already knew the horsepower figure but this is the first time a torque figure has been mentioned, with all 510 lb-ft available at 3,500 rpm. This results in a towing capacity of 8,000 pounds for the most capable F-150 model. As for the entry-level model, still powered by the firm’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, figures of 375 hp and 470 lb-ft have also been confirmed.

In terms of pricing, a previous leak revealed that the standard F-150 Raptor Supercab will be priced at $49,520 including the $1,195 destination and delivery fee. As for the larger Supercrew variant, it will set customers back a minimum of $52,505.

While we now know how powerful the new F-150 is and how much it costs, Ford has yet to officially confirm the above numbers or announce when dealer or customer deliveries will commence.
