    • OMG - Ford giving the F-150 Raptor the 5.2 liter supercharged V8 from the GT500 Mustang for 2021

      Please be true. PLEASE. BE. TRUE. This is a rumor from Car and Driver who says they have 'inside sources' at Ford stating the Raptor will get the supercharged 700+ horsepower 5.2 liter V8 from the GT500 Mustang.


      Suffice it to say, BoostAddict is a fan of the powerplant. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the Ecoboost 3.5 liter V6 the Raptor has now but a TVS2650 supercharged 5.2 liter V8 offering 700+ horsepower out of the box is a whole new ballgame.

      Maybe Ford is preparing to answer RAM who is rumored to be putting the Hellcat V8 in an off-road truck? This certainly would be quite a response.

      Let's hope Car and Driver is not just fishing for clicks but considering their quality as of late, that may be the case. If so, we will not forget it.

        They could price this at $100K and they’ll sell every single one they can make. Would be awesome!

        This would def tank the value of the ecoboost and probably 1st gen V8 raptors too (which im fine with). Right now the older V8 ones are still pretty expensive for the people who hate on the V6 and the V6 ones are expensive because they are new.
        If they do put this motor in the Raptor the price point will certainly be higher and maybe should be called Super Raptor or Raptor RS or something.
