Ford was also spotted testing the Raptor version of its redesigned 2022 Ranger. The new Ranger will be a twin under the skin with the Bronco, so it’s not surprising to see the performance versions of both vehicles being tested together.
2021 Ford F-150 Raptor
Ford’s redesigned 2021 F-150 spawned its own Raptor variant this week. The new F-150 Raptor is powered by a twin-turbocharged V-6, just like its predecessor, but we’ve been told that a more potent Raptor R is coming complete with a V-8 under the hood. In other words, Ford will soon have an answer for the Ram 1500 TRX.
