The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor will be revealed on Wednesday, February 3, at 11 a.m. ET live on Ford’s YouTube channel.

This will mark the end of the wait for Ford’s answer to the 702-hp Hellcat-powered 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.

A couple of 2021 Raptors have been spotted undergoing testing. It was learnt it would feature a coil-spring rear suspension setup. The two previous-generation Raptors had leaf-spring setups.

We have also spotted a higher-performance version. This is likely to be called the Raptor R. It has a V-8 rumble that was caught on video. Rumour has it that the standard Raptor will still have the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 under the hood.





We’re not sure if the Raptor R, which could have a 700-plus-hp supercharged V-8, will be unveiled next week, but we’ll have to wait and see.

One would be afforded the opportunity to see if the new Raptor will have a supercharged V-8 or not live on Ford’s YouTube channel.

The 2021 Raptor should stick to the formula: blackout “Ford” script grille, which we see in the teaser image below, plus wide fenders, 35-inch BFGoodrich K02 all-terrain tires, optional beadlock-capable wheels, and Fox racing shocks.

It could also have additional accessories available from Ford such as a spare tire carrier and rock rails, and we hope Ford adds some fun Easter eggs to fight back at the TRX’s savage Easter eggs.

We will know all the details next week, and they should make the Ram vs. Ford battle for off-road-pickup dominance all the more interesting.
