2021 Ford Ranger By Roush Performance
Ford Ranger is a capable midsize truck with a lot of potential for off-road and performance-oriented mods. Ford has denied us the pleasure of the Ranger Raptor in the U.S. market, but it has been a boon to the aftermarket companies who are filling this vacuum with their respective iterations. The latest one to do so is Roush Performance. Roush has taken the 2021 Ranger under its wing and turned it into an off-road beast.
2021 Ford Expedition XL STX
There are many of us who want a full-size SUV but not the third row. In fact, you might just keep the third row folded always because you need the cargo space more than the seats. If you fall in that category, Ford has a solution for you.
For the 2021 model, the company has released a two-row version of its Expedition SUV that not only gives you the practicality of a full-size SUV, but also shaves $3,000 off the sticker price. It is offered as the new base trim within the lineup, but comes with enough features to keep you happy.
Everything We Know About The Ford F-150 Raptor R V-8
2021 started with a bang for us truck lovers when Ford announced the arrival of the third-gen F-150 Raptor. What made the deal even sweet what the little disclaimer at the end of the video which said, “more to come in 2022”. Decoding this cryptic text revealed that it’s the Raptor R, which will feature a V-8 engine under the hood, as confirmed by Ford officials on Twitter soon after. Beyond this, however, there is no information available. But, using the new standard Raptor as a benchmark and a truck that will take on the Ram TRX once it arrives, we have a lot to speculate.
2021 Ford F-150 Raptor
Six months after revealing the 2021 Ford F-150, Ford finally brought in the new Raptor as well. There was a lot of mulling around Ford introducing a V-8 to rival the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX. But, Ford decided to keep the standard Raptor clear and announced a new Raptor R that will feature a V-8 and take on the cocky Ram 1500 TRX.
The 2021 model year marks the third generation of the F-150 Raptor, and Ford has come up with some significant changes. For starters, you can now have it with 37-inch tires from the factory, which was unheard of in this segment. Then there’s the new exhaust system to make it sound sweeter. But, will these changes push the price of this V-6-powered truck dangerously close to a better-accomplished, V-8-powered Ram 1500 TRX?
The Ford Bronco Sport Can Be Equipped With Five Accessory Bundles For More Outdoor Fun
To make sure that the Bronco received a positive response, Ford had prepped to unveil it with aftermarket accessories right from the beginning, with a plan to have over 150 accessories at launch.

To make sure owners have no dearth of products to customize the Bronco and Bronco Sport as per their taste, the company has now launched five more bundles for the latter.
The New Ford F-150 Raptor Is Allergic to Electrification
Ford has been busy with its trucks lately. First came with the 2021 F-150, which also featured a hybrid model in the lineup. Recently, Ford unveiled the F-150 Raptor as well, and announced one with a V-8 engine coming next year. Then there’s the electric F-150 in the works and we should hear more about it soon. Given how all vehicles are getting electrified, it wouldn’t be wrong to assume that the Raptor’s next in line.
But, Ford has ruled this out even before the topic got picked up. According to Muscle Cars and Trucks, a higher-up from Ford has made it clear that the Raptor will continue to be a pure internal combustion-engined model.
Ford’s Inspiration for the F-150 Raptor’s Exhaust Will Blow Your Mind
The third-gen F-150 Raptor debuted a few days back and it came with quite a few features that make it an exciting off-road truck. Apart from the 37-inch tires, the truck’s exhaust system has garnered a lot of attention. You would naturally assume that Ford is trying to keep up with the competition and perhaps tore a page out of the Ram TRX’s book, but the inspiration for the exhaust note comes from two completely unrelated products that the Raptor has nothing in common with – The Nissan GT-R and the Alfa Romeo Giulia QV.
Ford Actually Had to Modify Its Production Lines to Handle The F-150 Raptors 37-Inch Tires
Ford launched the third-gen Raptor with a lot of interesting goodies. However, the 37-inch tires from the factory caught everyone’s attention. This is the largest size ever offered by any automaker from the factory in the light-duty truck segment. While it sounds exciting, it forced Ford to make some drastic changes to its production lines to accommodate it.
Folks from the Blue Oval spoke to Road and Track about this and it surely wasn’t as easy as it looks.

The 2021 F-150 Raptor’s unveiling might have been lackluster, or dare I say, disappointing, but this news more than makes up for it. At the end of the premiere video, Ford dropped a “more to come in 2022” message. It wasn’t as cryptic as suspenseful as it sounds. The media release clearly mentioned it was the Raptor R, but no other details were given.
Later, however, a few sources from Ford confirmed that the Raptor R will be powered by a V-8 engine. How’s that for your “Pop the hood” jibe, Ram?
