Ford say the new V6 will be more powerful than the old 6.2l V8. It will have a 10 speed auto and it will interesting to see if it has a two speed transfer case... VW dropped the two speed transfer case with the eight speed auto in the Amarok.

I guess that Ford has to do things to improve the fuel economy and they are. Kudos to Ford for building this beast.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor bows in Detroit with more than 411 bhp [video]

"Ford was coy on technical specifications but confirmed the Raptor will be powered by a high-output version of the company's 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. It will produce more than the current 6.2-liter V8 that develops 411 bhp (306 kW) and 434 lb-ft (587 Nm) of torque.
The engine will be connected to a new 10-speed automatic transmission and an all-new four-wheel-drive system with a torque-on-demand transfer case. Ford says the latter manages power distribution between the front and rear wheels and combines the "best attributes of clutch-driven, on-demand all-wheel drive with durable, mechanical-locking four-wheel drive."

No substitute for cubes in the market segment its in. It sounds a bit sucky to me. The whole aluminium chassis and body thing is appealing though.

Will they sell them here?

Will it still have the 6.2 option? I note none of the other, current new shape F150's have the 6.2 as an option (previous model had the 2.7, 3.5, 5.0 and 6.2).

unless you a paying top dollar for a high end sports / supercar, the v8 engines in 'normal' cars will start to diminish. with the new emission controls etc coming out and what not, and the technology and vast improvements you will start seeing 4 cylinder cars that have in excess of 250rwkw.


if you look at F1 for instance, 1.5l v6 turbo making 550hp and weighing less then average australian man.

v8's will soon be a thing of the past, unless you have a thick wallet.

Yeah, your right about that OSH. Will be a shame though, as awesome as the new high tech motors are with efficiency and power per litre type stuff there is just something about a V8 thats hard to beat.

Yes I think it's the same block but won't be the 600hp plus that the new GT will have. Apparently it's a brand new engine not just a revised version of the current 3.5l ecoboost.

wonder if it will be the same engine that they are releasing in the 2017 ford GT. that has a twin turbo v6 eco boost engine.


for those players at home who are unaware of what that sounds like... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3C-qSRnqUZg

holy crap... sound porn!

Raptor.... No V8....





I for one mourn the loss of a once awesome Effy.
If you buy a big brash Yank truck, you want a big, brash Yank V8 in it to drive over all the self righteous Prius driving ******s.

And that mate is a fact.

We all need to get used to it.

Mores the pity. :(

MB has already made their last V8 in the FF73.

BMW are to follow suit (though will retain the 5lt V10).

The US recently announced that by the year 2025 car companies must average 54.5 miles per gallon across their entire fleet...

Perhaps us petrol heads only chance with be classic or vintage, and stock standard at that.

Still, a 351 phase III is stock standard off the show room floor. :)

As a gentleman of advancing years I would buy an F150 Raptor.

I could always blame senility ...

Driven plenty of F trucks and they are ok.

We should be thankful it has an internal combustion engine and a steering wheel. Soon we might all be driving autonomous electric Google cars.

As long as we have Chevy's performance division there is a little hope - they sell any crate motor you could want.
But for how much longer, I don't know.

Maybe I should get that LS3 while I still can.

Maybe you should buy the LS3 but you might be going slower than what is offered by the latest turbo and electric performance cars.

The V6 3.5l turbo in the new raptor will have more hp and TQ than the old V8 6.2l. Plus the V6 has another four gears to help maximize what it's got.

The electric Tesla P85D which is a luxury four door sedan does 0-60 in 3.2 seconds. I was in California in November and really surprised by the number of Teslas on the road.
