Ford revealed the third-generation 2021 F-150 Raptor today with new features that make it one of the most capable off-road pickup trucks yet. And confirmed the 2022 Raptor R, a Ram 1500 TRX rival. It will have a V8 that’s expected to crank out 700+ horsepower. As for the regular twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 Raptor coming summer 2021, this is what you can look forward to.

35-Inch & 37-Inch Tires are available but the 37-inch specially designed BFGoodrich All-Terrain T/A KO2 tires are new and part of an optional appearance package. Here you get 13.1 inches of ground clearance versus 12.0 inches with the standard 35-inch set and 11.8 inches on the TRX.

The Five-Link Rear Suspension is all-new. It features longer trailing arms, a Panhard rod bracket and 24-inch coil springs, similar to the TRX. This setup helps to accommodate the massive 37-inch tires, provide more control, stabilize the axle and get more torque down.

FOX Live Valve Internal-Bypass Shocks come with every Raptor and do a better job at dissipating heat and responding to terrain changes. You also get a greater range of dampening adjustability and bigger shock bodies that measure at 3.1-inches in diameter. New low-friction fluid in those shocks also help to improve comfort off and on-road.

Engine Options will include a third-generation twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost setup for the regular Raptor and a V8 in the 2022 Raptor R. Although the 3.5-liter V6 is carried over from the last generation, Ford said this time it "delivers better low-end torque" but wouldn’t provide any numbers. We also get revised turbos, 10.5:1 compression, higher performing fans and 500 miles on a full tank.

Transmission was also carried over from the last generation, but with improvements that allow for towing capacity of up to 8,200 lbs and payload at 1,400 lbs. A 200 lbs increase for both. Shift points were also improved and should be most noticeable when going through the Terrain Management System modes.

Exhaust on the V6 Raptor is so good you’ll think it’s a V8! To accomplish that, Ford went with an all-new equal length active exhaust system that features a built-in X-pipe, active valves, 3-inch exhaust pipe, a “trombone” mid-pipe loop to create equal length exhausts and four configurable sound level modes to finish it off.

Tech Upgrades that include a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and 12-inch center screen with Raptor-specific graphics and animations. Both are customizable and allow multitasking. Over-the-air updates will open the potential for Ford to offer trail maps and even Trail Turn Assist. Sync 4 and FordPass are also available.

Interior Design was completely redone with a modern look featuring new enhanced materials, special surface finishes, bigger seat bolsters, optional Recaro seats, a Raptor exclusive steering wheel and aluminum or optional carbon fiber interior trim to finish it off.

The Aggressive Exterior might seem familiar but it's been completely redesigned to create a distinctive look thanks to the power dome hood with a heat extractor and functional side vents, blacked-out grille, bigger blacked-out headlights and taillights, aggressive fenders, bigger front skid plate and bigger front and rear bumpers. The inspiration for all of this was the F-22 Raptor fighter jet.

Pro Power Onboard is offered here as well as on the rest of the 2021 F-150 lineup. It allows you to use your truck as a mobile generator for jobsites or tailages. Here, bed-mounted power outlets provide 2 kilowatts of power, enough for most common power tools.
