There has been a lot of speculation about the new 2017 Ford Raptor’s horsepower and torque numbers over the past year. Using estimates based on the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost engines in the new Ford F-150’s, producing around 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, the new Raptor should be plenty more capable.
According to a screenshot of Ford’s dealer website portal that was leaked online, the new 2017 Ford Raptor will output 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque, which seem very believable based on past estimates and projections. No official word from Ford on the actual numbers yet, but with all the upgrades that the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 is getting coupled with the aluminum body for lighter weight its entirely possible that these figures are accurate.
We draw closer to the release date of the 2017 Ford Raptor and the wait for real numbers will come to an end. Stay tuned for more news and information about the 2017 Ford Raptor.
