New, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor Makes 450HP / 510 Torque

2017 Ford Raptor

Ford has officially announced that the all-new, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor produces 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque from its 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine, more than what the previous Raptor made from its V8.

The 3.5L V6 is mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission that drives all four wheels, helping make the performance-tuned pickup truck blistering fast both on pavement and off the beaten path.

Ford Performance engineering supervisor Matt Tranter said:

“Raptor was designed to be a no-compromise, off-road performance machine. That is why we made the switch from the cast-iron V8 to the aluminum block, high-output GTDI V6 EcoBoost engine that our team tuned to add 39 horsepower and 76 lb.-ft. of torque for today’s Raptor.”

The new Raptor is also 500 pounds lighter than its predecessor, contributing to a 21 percent improved average torque-to-weight ratio and a 23 percent improvement in EPA-rated combined fuel economy. Sales in the United States begin in November 2016, with prices starting below $50,000.

2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty Can Tow Up To 37,000 Pounds (16,800 Kg)

The company is claiming the ‘king of towing’ title.

Ford has announced the towing and payload figures for the 2020 F-Series Super Duty lineup, and they are impressive.

Trucks equipped with the 6.7-liter Power Stroke diesel engine have maximum gooseneck towing of up to 37,000 pounds (16,782 kg), maximum fifth-wheel towing of 32,500 pounds (14,741 kg), and maximum conventional towing of 24,200 pounds (10,976 kg), all of which are best in class.

The 6.7L diesel V8 produces 475 horsepower and 1,050 lb-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful diesel engine that Ford has ever built.

For those who prefer a gasoline mill instead, there is also a 7.3-liter V8 that makes 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft. of torque, offering best-in-class power in the gasoline segment.

Finally, the base 6.2-liter engine puts out 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. It’s not the most powerful engine, but it nevertheless achieves a segment-leading payload rating of 7,850 pounds (3,560 kg).

“To put the capability of Super Duty into perspective, its maximum available towing figure means a properly configured F-450 could tow about as much weight as 31 American quarter horses at 1,200 pounds,” Ford stated. “That is one big trailer.”

2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Does 0-100-0 mph in 10.6 seconds

The new Shelby GT500 is a beast, but you probably already knew that.

Ford has released more 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 performance details, with the most impressive being that it can go from 0-100-0 mph in only 10.6 seconds.

In other words, this monster can accelerate from 0 to 100 mph (161 km/h) and then brake to a complete stop in under 11 seconds without skipping a beat.

Power for the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 comes from a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine that produces 760 horsepower and 625 ft.-lb. of torque. A Tremec seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that can upshift as quick as 80 milliseconds sends all that power to the rear wheels, allowing for some serious acceleration. There are five drive modes that Ford says provides “ultra-smooth road shifts in normal mode to forceful powershifts in drag mode.”

The Mustang Shelby GT500 is also able to stop on a dime thanks to massive 16.5-inch front rotors, which Ford says are the largest placed on a domestic sports coupe.

Pricing for the ‘most powerful street-legal Ford ever made’ starts at $73,995 in the United States.

All-Electric Ford F-150 pickup truck

The electric F-150 will be built “Ford tough” and shouldn’t have any problem with power.

Ford has posted a video highlighting the pulling power of its all-electric F-150 prototype.

The video shows the electric F-150 tow 10 double-decker rail cars and 42 2019 F-150s, with a combined weight of more than 1 million pounds (453,592 kg).

“Ford has confirmed it will bring an all-electric F-150 to market,” the company stated. “This will be in addition to the all-new F-150 Hybrid that goes on sale next year. Both electrified models will have the toughness, capability, and innovation that F-150 customers have come to expect.”

The F-150 Hybrid will go on sale sometime in 2020, but the precise timing for the electric F-150 remains unclear. Exact specs are also under wraps, but we do know Ford’s workhorse will be “built Ford tough.”
