New Ford Raptor To Debut On February 3rd

The super-truck segment has become a serious playground for high-powered pickups. The new Ford Raptor is the next to join in on the fun


  • We’ll finally find out if it gets a V6, or V8, or both.

  • Fans are hoping that the Shelby GT500’s supercharged V8 will be available.


The Ford Raptor, when it first launched in 2010, ignited a desire for more of everything from pickup lovers. It’s gone on to become something of a legend in its own right but recently, the spotlight moved over to Ram. On February 3rd, we’ll see if all the attention returns to the Raptor.

There have been numerous sightings of camo’d Ford Raptors over the last months. Some of the better videos, with sound, seem to indicate that Ford has indeed decided to reinstate a V8 for active duty under the Raptor’s powerful hood. There are a few options, V8-wise, including the massive 7.3-litre Godzilla as well as the supercharged 5.2-litre Predator engines.

Ford’s had a little time to consider its options, especially since Ram introduced the 702-horsepower TRX back in August of last year.
