Want a Ford F-150? Buy a hybrid, not a Raptor


The name Raptor has become synonymous with performance in the Ford truck lineup, but the brand’s recent interaction with the F-150 Raptor, which started it all, doesn’t look as interesting in instrumental testing.

Edmunds recently ran the F-150 range using a test battery to determine how fast each model was and achieved amazing results. The F-150 Raptor is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 450 hp. (335 kW / 456 PS) and 510 pound feet (691 Nm) can produce torque, but it cannot affect the F-150 Tremor’s traction range. , which is 400 hp. (298 kW / 405 PS) and 500 pound-feet (678 Nm) of torque and 430 hp. (321 kW / 436 PS) and 570 pound-feet (773 Nm) of the F-150 hybrid. ) torque.

The 2021 F-150 Raptor can reach a top speed of 96 km / h in 5.8 seconds, but it is compatible with both the F-150 Tremor and the F-150 hybrid. Even the previous generation, the 2019 F-150 Raptor, finished the sprint in just 5.9 seconds.

Surprisingly, both the F-150 Tremor and the F-150 hybrid travel four miles in 14.1 seconds (96.9 mph and 98.1 mph, respectively), while the F-150 Raptor takes 14.3 seconds, exactly Time to finish the run like the last generation Raptor.

Even when it comes to other performance dimensions such as handling and braking, a high-performance F-150 Raptor is not needed. While it slows to zero from 60 miles (96 km / h) at 149 feet (45 m), the F-150 Tremor travels 142 feet (43 m) to do the same, while the hybrid delivers impressive performance at 138 feet. (42 m). These two trucks can handle 0.74 g, which makes it harder to spin than the Raptor, which can only lift 0.71 g.

Interestingly, this seems to be the biggest enemy weight of the truck. Heavier than the hybrid (thanks to the extra 37-inch tires), the F-150 Raptor weighs in at 11.69 pounds per pound-foot. The F-150 hybrid is slightly better, weighing just 10.29 pounds per pound, and the F-150 Tremor weighs just 11.04 pounds per pound.

All this shows that horsepower is not an important indicator, and Ford wants to release the F-150 Raptor R, which runs on the hasty V8.
