The standards proved high - with the 2017 F-150 Raptor launched to universal acclaim. This twin-turbo beast roared down every highway, shaking the pavement with its 3.5L V6 engine and 10-speed automatic transmission. It had no equal.

It will soon, however, have a new sibling.



According to AutoBlog, Ford is partnering with aftermarket specialist F250R to transform the 2017 Raptor. The current powertrain - which yields 450 HP and 510 lb.-ft of torque - will be supercharged, with a new 6.7L diesel V8 engine promising:

Horsepower: Up to 580!
Torque: Up to 1,175 lb.-ft!

Hear that? It’s the sound of jaws dropping across Canada.

The F250R F-150 should become an undeniable force on the highway. This pick-up - appropriately named the Super Raptor - will provide drivers with peerless performance, boasting 40-inch all-terrain tires, an elevated suspension, and a bumper-less frame. These elements will combine to combat drag and ensure a more aerodynamic Baja experience. Combine that with Bilsten 1500 shocks and a newly raised (4.5-inches) chassis to further impress.

This isn’t a truck. This is an icon.

The F250R Super Raptor is currently available in limited release - but we anticipate that strong consumer interest will spark a nationwide campaign.
