We don’t really know how capable this new engine of 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is going to be, although we do know that it is intended to be much more powerful (although about 40 percent smaller) of the current 6.2-liter V8.
That will, in reality, mean it’ll be more than able to generate more than 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque, and that’s more than impressive figures, you have to agree with us on that! The V6 will be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Yes, you’ve read well, 10 gears!
