Ram Burns Ford Following The Announcement Of The All-New 3rd Generation Raptor

Speculations are running high, the gauntlet is thrown, the Ram TRX wants a piece of the Ford Raptor. How will Ford respond?


  • The new 2021 Ford Raptor debuts tomorrow.

  • The 2021 Ram TRX is the current undisputed super-truck champion.

  • As though Ram knows something, they’ve challenged Ford on Twitter.


We are all eagerly awaiting the all-new 2021 Ford Raptor’s reveal tomorrow morning. Hint, we’ve got the information but can’t share it until the embargo lifts on Wednesday, February 3 at 11:00 a.m. EST. Ford wants to make sure everyone will be online when they debut the truck and reminded all on Twitter. Ram took this opportunity to poke Ford.

The heat is rising and things will be said and done tomorrow when Ford finally lifts the wraps off the 2021 Raptor. One of the replies to Ford’s Tweet resonates above all others as it comes from Ram Trucks. Their simple “Pop the hood” says loads about what everyone, including Ram, wants to know about the Raptor. In fact, it’s the only thing that really matters.

As we all know by now, the Ram TRX is gifted with the supercharged Hellcat 6.2-litre HEMI V8 which is good for no less than 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. The current 2020 Raptor features the twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 is “only” good for 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque.

Tomorrow, we find out what’s under the hood.
