2021 Ford F-150 Raptor Finally Arrives, Is All About the Redesigned Suspension

The iconic Raptor was first released by Ford in 2009, and it quickly became the weapon of choice for those who wanted the most badass truck out there.

The latest model seems to have lost that title in favor of the insane Ram 1500 TRX, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to back down since Ford fitted it with all the latest tech at their disposal – except for a better engine.

Curiously, the carmaker hasn’t specified the powerplant’s output yet, but we’re expecting more than the previous model’s 450 hp.

So, the Blue Oval is playing hide and seek with an entire world as far as the all-important horsepower and torque ratings are concerned. Instead, it is promising that’s just the first chapter, and a flagship Raptor R will be coming for the 2022 model year.

Naturally, that’s cause for its rivals – especially Ram – to make fun of the indecision and try to snatch the red carpet from underneath the 2021 F-150 Raptor. Frankly, there’s nothing anyone can do about it since Ford basically allowed the competition to
