Truck YeahThe trucks are good!

How much power does the new turbocharged 2017 Ford Raptor really make? A couple weeks ago we caught some dealer documents that indicated it puts out 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque, a nice and healthy bump from the old V8. Now we know that’s true, officially and forever.

Get ready to feel that sweet, sweet Ecoboost power.

The power figures are confirmed in this video titled “This is why the new Ford F-150 Raptor is badass,” which is good and accurate:

Watch it go! It is fast and makes a fool of the sand.

The old V8 Raptor was rated at a puny and sad 411 HP and 434 lb-ft of torque. The new 3.5-liter turbocharged V6, using the miracle from God that is EcoBoost technology, shames the old car with cylinders to spare.


I can’t wait to do truck things in this truck! Believe you me, boy.

I get it. I do. A (basic) Pre-runner truck from the factory? Sign me up. But as an enthusiast it genuinely hurts my heart to see maybe 5% of them actually get use beyond the pavement. And why do people do this? But Wranglers and raptors when they don’t use them? I asked a guy last month if he ever takes his wrangler off road. His answer verbatim “hell no, I paid too much money for this thing!” Then proceeded to tell me how uncomfortable and unpractical it was. Are we really that egocentric as a society? We are willing to pay, not just in money, for being fake? Geez y’all, Raptor up some of that ego and if you are going to buy a purpose built vehicle, use it or lose it.
