Ford F-150 Time continues to feel faster, the F150 raptor leaves the ground. It’s good to fly and of course, it’s designed to be very comfortable and powerful. You will really enjoy the ride with the scientific power of the engineers who built this vehicle.
You certainly hope to do everything without any mistakes or mistakes while driving. the driving sensation produced by the Ford F150 Raptor feels very quiet in the cabin, making your trip even more enjoyable.
We are sure you are very tired and excited when driving a Ford F-150 Raptor, that’s the initial picture of the driving experience with this new report card.
We are perfect for this sandy area that sits on the California and Nevada border about half an hour’s drive from Death Valley National Park and Mojave National Reserve. This will be the ideal terrain to test the new Raptor and any upgrades on this new vehicle.
But you need to know this is indeed a smart truck we totally agree with this intelligence it carries the latest technology standard Ford Co-Pilot 360, plus a 12.0-inch touchscreen running Sync 4 and an all-digital instrument cluster.
Equipped with a generator in the form of Onboard ProPower which is available with a fairly large capacity of 2.0 kW. It is also equipped with Raptor’s new rear suspension technology, which is very soft and comfortable.
Looking comfortable and capable is one of the tag lines that are very attached to the Ford F150 raptor, he is able to explore the dunes and jump feels easier thanks to the rear suspension which is completely upgraded.
The New Fox Racing shocks are at all four corners while the new coil-sprung has a super long trailing arm and factory Panhard rods for more travel and wheel articulation. The new coil-springs have super long trailing arms and factory Panhard rods for more travel and wheel articulation.
Ford is now a little crazier and offers 37-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO2 tires as an option. We believe that tires of this size can make the members of the Ford F150 family even more comfortable.
The suspension is long enough to absorb the impact of a vehicle of 5800 pounds 2630 kg when hitting the ground hard so that shocks or bumps or potholes will not be felt.
the truck cabin is also a large space and is lined with double-glazed windows that are able to withstand the wind and even the rubber knobs are not too annoying. responds well to vegetation but BFGoodrich 37 inch tires In testing required a steady hand to drive this car.
the larger tires make the list of losing a bit of speed on the straights when accelerating. The Highway raptor with these 35-inch tires feels more powerful than the 37-inch tires.
In the engine segment, it is equipped with a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 producing 450 horsepower and the same 510 pound-feet of torque as last year. However, the blue oval promised to present a comparable engine rival that was powered by a V8.
Although fat hasn’t fixed the EcoBoost engine on the raptor they finally fixed the V6 sound problem that has been problematic for a long time. The company added a very long exhaust pipe from the 2 Turbo Chargers although that is not clearly visible because the pipe is familiar with the trombone design that loops on the left.
The Ford engineers then pushed the X pipe through the Catalytic converter and we finally have the Vietnamese Eko bus which sounds like any other great V6 engine with a distinctive and powerful sound.

All-New Ford F-150 Driving
Ford set up four separate activities at Dumont Dunes for us to test the new Raptor.
But, before doing so, we spent an hour “Overlanding” a meandering path that barely lives up to the definition of the word.
A mix of soft sand, steep hills, and continuous waves greeted us when we arrived at the park at around 05.30 am.
Just 15 minutes, our stupidity left the Raptor stranded on a soft sand dune, its fat BFGoodrich tires busy digging the road.
Amazingly, the Raptor just needed a locked rear differential and a steady application of gas to break free.
It was the only moment where the field overcame us.
The first two hurdles Ford set for us focused on the sand. There is high-speed action around the dunes, followed by a rally track that splits between the desert.
The 2021 Raptor retains or renames the majority of drive modes in the Terrain Management System from last year.
Tow/Haul mode joins Normal, Sport, Slippery, Rock Crawl, and Baja, while Mud and Sand are now Off-Road.
While each contains a set of presets to optimize dampening, steering, engine sound, and powertrain performance, we went with Baja – the most aggressive setting.
This mode takes the most volume from the twin exhausts, sets the dampers and steering wheel to the default off-road setup, instructs the ECU to offer a sharper throttle response, and forces the 10-speed automatic transmission to hold the gear longer.
In its sportiest off-road driving mode, the Raptor has overcome both obstacles.
New Ford F150 Come on, Jump!
The instructor from Ford suggested that we approach the jump at 40 miles/hour (64km/h) for the first try.
Yes, when it comes to flying trucks weighing more than 2.5 tons, you really have to listen to the experts.
The result is a pleasant jump, but we wanted more.
The next time, we cranked up the speed to 50 mph (80km/h) and the Raptor made a smooth landing.
The third time we couldn’t hold back anymore and hit the gas pedal at 60 miles/hour (96 km/h).
It was like flying from Las Vegas to Los Angeles. But, to be sure, our landing in the sand was more pleasant than anything that happened at LAX Airport.
The Raptor landed with almost no drama, while the impact squeezed enough of the massive 24-inch spring that there was a real jump after landing.
After the jump, we approached the hard-pack area and opened the tap on the Raptor’s twin-turbocharged engine.
Riding through the desert at 70 mph (112 km/h), the Raptor’s soft suspension still manages to devour turns quietly.
This truck never made us feel uncomfortable.
The hardest test of our truck was in the area called “whoops”.
This collection of perpendicular, high-frequency, medium-amplitude bumps is torture for a truck suspension.
Ford designed the Raptor for this kind of challenge, and our instructors recommend increasing the speed after each track.
In the end, we overcame this hurdle at 60 miles per hour, and the soft off-road suspension responded to the impact amazingly.
All-New Ford F-150 Power & Performance
Please note with the wide range of powertrain options you can match the Ford F-150 Specs truck with a range of horsepower from 250 to 400 horsepower.
New Ford F150 Capacity
A crane capacity having a maximum rating of 13200 tonnes unless significant changes occur should offer the same functionality.
Ford F150 Engine
The engine on the Ford F150 is accompanied by a basic 3.3-liter V6 pumping out 290 horsepower, but you can also choose a 5.0-liter V8 with 400 horsepower or a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 325 horsepower. For more power, consider a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 400 horsepower. Diesel enthusiasts will appreciate the 3.0-liter V6 producing 250 horsepower. There’s also a new hybrid powertrain that produces a combined 400 horsepower.
Ford F150 MPG
With so many engines to choose from, you’ll see a variety of fuel economy ratings as well. However, the best fuel economy is found with the PowerBoost Hybrid F-150 with any model year. It’s rated for up to 700 miles of travel on a single charge.
All-New Ford F-150 Price
Raptor’s price segmentation has never been a cheap truck priced at around $12,000 from last year’s model. Prices start at 65840 US dollars with a destination fee of 1695 dollars.
The $6,150 801A High package will add a plethora of equipment, from the Torsen limited-slip differential, heated steering wheel, to the clean Ford interior surfaces.
The $7,500 Raptor 37 Performance Package offers 37-inch tires and 17-inch Beadlock-capable alloy wheels, a striking graphics package, gorgeous Recaro seats with blue upholstery, and custom-tuned shocks.
However, you need the 801A High Pack to get the Raptor 37 Pack, bringing the actual cost to $14,000.
Add other options like ProPower Onboard (995 dollars) and panoramic sunroof (1,495), and you’ll see your bill swell to 83,000 US dollars (Rp1.18 billion).
Spending that much money on the Ford F-150 Raptor is a decision we’re thankful we didn’t have to make.
This is a solid, high-performance truck capable of traversing the hottest and toughest deserts.
However, the combination of lower power and a higher price tag than its main rival is a big minus.
The appearance of the Raptor R later is believed to solve the problem.
When it comes to price, we advise you to think of the Raptor as a first-class plane ticket – once you get the hang of flying with it, you won’t care about the money you’ve spent.
