2024 Ford F-150 Raptor Getting Over 700 Horsepower

Posted on

The Ford Motor Company unveiled a new 2024 F-150 today, which gets revised styling and some new features. A perennial bestseller, the versatile truck comes in a variety of configurations and offers something for everyone. To make sure Raptor fans didn’t go away empty-handed, the automaker indicated the Raptor R would make over 700 horsepower next year. 

It’s not like the current Ford F-150 Raptor R lacks power. Even though the standard Raptor uses a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost that produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque, Ford decided to up the ante. It borrowed the supercharged 5.2-liter V8 from the Mustang GT500, which produces 700 horsepower and 645 pound-feet of torque in the Raptor R. 

The 2024 model uses the same supercharged 5.2-liter V8 but now packs some additional horses. Ford did not specify how much more power the 2024 model will make, but it’s enough that they made a point to mention it in the F-150’s live stream. By comparison, the Ram TRX is equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, so it’s a good bet the 2024 Raptor R will beat those numbers.

Other F-150 changes include a revised front end with standard LED headlights, changes to the engine lineup, and the new Pro Access Tailgate, which incorporates a simple swing-out door in the middle of a traditional drop-down gate. Inside, the 12-inch driver and center console screen are standard, and an optional new heads-up display. The Raptor and Raptor R get new dual-valve shocks and a simplified option sheet that reduces order combinations but does not take away features.     

The base price for the Raptor starts at $77,980 plus $1,995 in destination fees. To get the supercharged V8 with over 700 horsepower, buyers have to spec the Raptor R 803A package, which is a $31,575 add-on. That brings the total to $111,550, but that price buys a supremely capable off-road vehicle with sports car-like acceleration and thoroughly composed on-road handling.
