Hear The Ford F-150 Raptor R’s Supercharged V8 For The First Time

Ooo, that sounds good.

The last decade saw the Ford F-150 Raptor dominate a segment of one. It stood alone as a tried-and-true off-road pickup, but that’s no longer the case. Last year, Ram introduced the TRX, a 702-horsepower (523-kilowatt) monster that has Ford preparing an even hotter Raptor variant. Our spy photographers have caught it testing before, but this is the first time we get to hear the Ford’s rumbling exhaust note.

The video clip is short as it catches the pickup at a stoplight that turns green, catching the exhaust note as it speeds across the intersection. It sounds good, too, though that’s something we didn’t doubt. Power is expected to come from Ford’s Predator supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that propels the Mustang, where it makes 760 hp (567 kW). That’d be plenty to take on the TRX. It’s not expected to make that much in the Raptor, though it should produce between 725 and 750 hp (540 and 560 kW). For the full story and exhaust video, check out this article from Motor 1.
