Ford’s 2021 F-150 Raptor Pickup Truck Sees A Slew Of Off-Road Upgrades

Ford has revealed the 2021 F-150 Raptor, and it looks like the Blue Oval’s performance pickup is getting some significant upgrades in both the tech and off-road arenas — though information on its powerplant remains elusive.

The F-150 Raptor is fully-redesigned for 2021, with a number of updates throughout. First and foremost are the changes Ford has made to the Raptor’s suspension. With an all-new five-link rear suspension and next-generation FOX Live Valve shocks — plus first-in-class available 37-inch tires — the new Raptor is more off-road capable than any of its predecessors. The truck has also received some significant tech upgrades, with the most notable being standard over-the-air updates and a new “connected experience” that could eventually allow for shareable off-road tech. Powered by a 3.5L Ecoboost V6, Ford hasn’t shared any power numbers on the new Raptor, but the previous model boasted 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, so expect something comparable. Ford has also updated the Raptor’s aggressive looks, with the new power dome hood’s heat extractor and side vents being inspired by the F-22 Raptor fighter jet. No price has been announced, but the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is set to arrive at dealerships this summer.
