The makers have announced that this car will produce more power than the existing horsepower of 416 or 306 kW and torque of 587 Nm or 434 lb-ft. Raj Nair is the Vice President of Global Product Development at Ford. He has confirmed the reports during an interview that the total output will be 450 HP or 331 kW.
This powerplant of Ford will be combined with a recently developed 10-speed automatic transmission system. This car will also have a fresh all-wheel drive system. It will be much lighter when compared to its predecessor. Extensive use of aluminum is the reason for this decrease in weight. This Raptor has been set up for all terrains and functions smoothly on rocks, snow and more due to the terrain response function. This car offers two wheelbases and cab configurations. One is a 133-inch-wheelbase and has an extended cab, the SuperCab. The other one is a 145-inch four-door, the SuperCrew. The brand new front fenders and a composite hood have further reduced the weight of this car. The stylists of this brand have managed to add even more muscle to the design of this new Raptor through these updates.
