Pressure Ratio Rumor has it the Raptor might get the supercharged GT500 engine. Maybe to compete with the Dodge Rebel Hellcat combo?

*Expect the V-8–powered Raptor to arrive sometime in 2020 or 2021, near the end of the current F-150's production run.

Ford is looking to bring back V-8 power for a special version of the F-150 Raptor. Multiple sources within Ford are telling us that the company is building a Raptor with the Mustang GT500's 5.2-liter supercharged V-8. This super-Raptor will serve as a sendoff for the current-generation F-150, scheduled to be replaced in 2021 or 2022.

At this point, we only know that the supercharged 5.2-liter V-8 is slated to make more than 700 horsepower in its Mustang Shelby GT500 application, so it's safe to assume that the V-8 will provide a similar amount of power in the Raptor pickup. Ford and GM's 10-speed automatic transmission seems like it would be plenty stout to hold up to this engine, given that it's used in the 650-hp Camaro ZL1, while Ford could easily source a sturdy enough live rear axle from component supplier Dana.

This would give Ford a strong response to Ram's planned TRX pickup, which is all but confirmed to use FCA's supercharged Hellcat V-8 that makes upward of 700 horsepower. Ram is likely to get the jump on Ford in terms of timing, as the TRX is slated for a debut sometime in 2020.

The Ford should arrive late in 2020 at the earliest, as we hear that this V-8–powered version of the Raptor will have a short production run spanning either one or two of the last model years for the current-generation F-150 that debuted for 2015. Given the current Raptor's base price of $54,450, we might expect this V-8 version to command somewhere north of $70,000.

bikrboy128 sounds like a 3800 car at WOT. or a 4.0l jeep with a rusted out muffler/cracked exhaust manifold. fucking terrible

SonicBlues92 Such a badass truck. Just cant get by that shitty sounding motor. When you have to pipe in fake exhaust noise threw the speakers you have a problem. Ford should've put a supercharged coyote in there.

crooks That 17 hennessey raptor has an aftermarket exhaust. It sounds worse then stock which isnt great but its not that bad.

Pressure Ratio I didn't get to take one off road. yet. But these are better than the older ones in every way. The trans is great and seems to be in the perfect gear at all times. It may not have the sound of the older v8. But who cares? The torque this motor makes motivates this thing ohhhh so well. It is a beast of a truck for sure.
