Leaked image reveals Ford F-150 Raptor R will get a Mustang GT500 V8 engine

The Ford F-150 Raptor R. It is one of the most awaited trucks in recent times. There have been rumors for several years that Ford will introduce a massive off-road truck with a supercharged V8 power. right Now, A leaked creation paper suggests this may be the case, as posted by Theraptorconnection on Instagram.

Ford F-150 Raptor R V8

It’s been a while since the Raptor R. When we first heard rumors of a V8-powered model in 2020, it was rumored to include the powerful, supercharged Mustang Shelby GT500 under the hood. in spite of that, When the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor hit the market, it had a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine under the hood, good at 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.

However, it now appears that those V8 dreams are becoming a reality. According to the anonymous source photo, which appears to have been taken in a factory configuration, the design sheet is clearly marked “5.2L”. It happens to have the same displacement as the 760-horsepower engine in the Shelby GT500 Mustang.suggesting that the rumors may have been true all along.

Ford will have to use an engine as powerful as its Ram TRX competitor

For the sake of argument, Ford recently used 5.2-liter V8s in its Shelby GT350 and GT500 Mustangs. Regardless, the Predator supercharged engine is expected to end up in the truck. The GT350’s naturally aspirated Voodoo engine is also powerful, and it boasts a mighty groan from its flat-cranked design. However, its 526 horsepower will not be enough to keep up with the model 702 HP TRX RAM.

This is perhaps one of the worst kept secrets in the truck world at the moment, but it nonetheless built expectations for the V8-powered Raptor. Rumors have been over the top since the discovery of a bubble-sounding test mule last year. In any case, order books are expected to open in the fall for the Raptor R, based on rumors from earlier this year, with the timing indicating it will land as a 2023 model.

Ford responded to the rumors

Faced with such a reveal, the signature blue oval said: “We previously said the F-150 Raptor R will have a V8 engine. We look forward to sharing more details later this year.” So you can only expect more details about the Raptor R’s engine specs in the coming months as the launch date approaches.
