The 2021 F-150 Raptor Doesn’t Give You The Same Bang For Your Buck Anyway

The 2021 F-150 Raptor continues to make 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque but now starts at over $65,000

Four months after unveiling the third-gen 2021 F-150 Raptor, Ford has finally announced the power specs

We already knew it will come with the same 3.5-liter, twin-turbo V-6 EcoBoost mill, but expected it to receive a slight power bump

But, as it turns out, it continues to make the same power as before – 450 horses and 510 pound-feet of torque

However, the starting price of the truck is now $65,840; $10,000 more than the 2020 F-150 Raptor

It must be noted that the price of the 2020 Raptor Supercrew was $58,135. So, essentially, it is $7,705 costlier

Engine and transmission might be the same, but for the extra moolah, you get a new suspension setup and a new exhaust system

And, not to mention, 35-inch tires as standard and also a body that can be equipped with 37-inch rubber without any modifications

On the inside, it comes with stuff like a 12-inch digital instrument cluster, 12-inch touchscreen SYNC4 infotainment system, 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, etc.

But, with the increased price, the 2021 Raptor just $6,300 cheaper than the much-more accomplished Ram 1500 TRX

You get a V-8 engine with a supercharger than churns out 252 horses and 140 pound-feet of torque more. This is enough to justify the premium you pay for the Ram 1500 TRX

That said, which truck would you pick - the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor or the Ram 1500 TRX? Or will you wait for the upcoming Raptor R?
