Ford Performance showed us that people do underestimate vehicles and this is better than them offering up lofty expectations and this has helped the Ford Focus RS.
The hot hatchback has enjoyed an output revision twice before they finally settled on 350 horses and the same with torque. With each of the revisions it meant that the vehicle attracted more and more publicity.
So has the same approach been used when it comes to the Ford F-150 Raptor? It is looking that way as the vehicle was first rated at 365 horses and 420 torque for the V6 3.5 litre EcoBoost engine and was then revised at 375 horses and 470 torque.
This is for the regular version of the Ford F-150 Raptor of course and at the moment nothing has been said about the performance version figures. We did see a document leaked that did suggest that it would offer up 450 horsepower and 510 torque.
This would be inline with the rating with that of the product development boss last year. The document also suggests that for towing capacity it would remain unchanged from what the 2014 model offered, which was 8,000lbs.
So it does look like all the pieces are being brought together for the Ford F-150 Raptor, and this may mean that there are more surprises coming our way that have yet to be uncovered. However this may not be for performance numbers.
