Engine parts are not known, except that it has eight cylinders and will be very powerful. The guys from the Ford Authority are reporting a new 7.3-liter Ford V8, which can also take place under the hood of a powerful pickup truck.

The high-performance Ford F-150 Raptor with its 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost family of 450 horsepower is a very worthy choice for fans of these cars. However, one thing that clearly does not hurt him is the powerful Hellcat V8.

Apparently, Ford executives heard the wishes of the fans of this car and their desire to see a powerful V8 under the hood of a pickup truck. According to the Ford Authority, the American automaker is now testing just such a modification of its full-size truck. So yes, after a while, their dreams come true.

The report identifies anonymous sources who claim to be aware of future blue oval plans. Whether these sources are Ford employees is unknown, but they claim that the V8 Raptor is in the testing phase and it will not be just a V8 engine truck. Presumably, this new V8 Raptor will significantly surpass the V6 pickup version as an ultra-high performance model that will compete with the upcoming Ram Rebel TRX. The latter will receive the same Hellcat V8 with a capacity of more than 700 hp.

Unfortunately, now there are not all the details about the V8 for the Ford Raptor – we decided to bet on a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 from the upcoming Mustang Shelby GT500. We are talking about the same 700+ hp The guys from the Ford Authority are reporting a new 7.3-liter Ford V8, which can also take place under the hood of a powerful pickup truck. On assurances from the guys from Ford, it will be the most powerful petrol V8 in its class.
