The 2021 Ford F-150 recently debuted in the United States, showcasing a more robust and sleeker appearance along with the addition of a hybrid variant which consists of a 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost engine and a 35-kW electric motor that comes with a lithium-ion battery pack. Given all the excitement, the blue oval badge has yet to release one more trim of the pickup, and that’s the renowned F-150 Raptor.
The image shown above is actually from the F-150 Raptor’s video wherein it was sternly tested on the side streets and freeways. This video clip was actually posted on a 4th Generation Ford F-150 forum. Notably, you’ll be able to hear its exhaust note from the video clip down below.
Admittedly, the audio was hindered by several factors including the wind noise on the freeway. Then again, that engine just sounds almighty. For those who don’t know, back in 2017, the Ford F-150 Raptor lost its V8 powerplant in replacement of the EcoBoost V6 engine. That in mind, sources say that the exhaust clip shown might just signify that the V8 is back.
Despite the conspiracy and the immediate assumption formulated due to the video clip, some people still think that it’s the V6 engine accompanied by a modified exhaust in order to produce such a growl. Others say that the absence of the EcoBoost whine might just mean that it’s really the V8.
On the positive note, the clip also gave an up-close sneak peek of the upcoming F-150 Raptor’s robust dimensions. On the other hand, other major details are still covered up behind the usual camo.
While we’re still indeed lucky to have its predecessor being sold locally, sources say that the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is expected to be revealed early next year.
