The new twin-turbocharged engine will make 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. That's a 39 hp and 76 lb-ft increase over the last Raptor's 6.2-liter V8. In addition, Ford is touting a 23-percent increase in EPA fuel economy estimates. At 15 city, 18 highway, and 16 combined, it's improved but still pretty dismal. Power doesn't come cheap it seems.
In addition to a cylinder reduction, the new Raptor's fuel economy gains can be attributed to the 500-lb diet and the all-new 10-speed automatic that was co-developed with GM. The new engine features both twin and port fuel injection, a lighter crankshaft and valvetrain, and a redesigned turbocharging system.
The new Raptor goes on sale soon, starting at $49,520 for the Supercab and $52,505 for the Supercrew.
