2020 Ford F-150 Raptor Pickup Truck Features and Specs
There are full-size light-duty pickup trucks, but then there's also the Ford F-150 Raptor. A couple of manufacturers have made moves towards the direction of producing models that hope to compete with the Raptor, but they then appear to think better of it.
The new Ford F-150 Raptor isn't just a pickup truck that's built with off-road performance to the fore; this is a full-blown Ford performance pickup truck that's as formidable on-road as it is when the pavement runs out. If you’re not convinced yet, here's a little of what to expect from the 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor.
If you’re going to be honest, there are trucks around these days that actually look a lot more off-road focused and hardcore than these Ford trucks do. It would be odd to use words like "subtle" and "subdued" to describe the Raptor, but it's by no means as outrageous to look at as it could be if it was trying to boast about its performance credentials. Of course, there are those small wheels with big tires, the flared fenders, and the distinctive front grille, but the look is enough to tell you this is something special without going over the top.
Some people may be surprised to learn that the most powerful engine in the Ford F-150 family is no longer the sole preserve of the Raptor, and it can now also be specified in the opulent F-150 Limited model. Even so, it's still an awesome powerplant, and the Raptor backs it up with a suspension setup that makes it even more capable here than it is in the Limited.
The unit in question is a High-Output version of the 3.5-liter V-6 twin-turbo found elsewhere in the range, which in this case develops a massive 450 horsepower and 510 lb.-ft. of torque. Here in the Raptor, that fabulous engine sends its power to all four wheels through Ford's magnificent 10-speed automatic transmission.
If you’re buying a Raptor with the idea of doing things other than having an awful lot of fun, as this is a pickup, after all, you'll probably want to know about its capability. Another high-tech feature of the F-150 Raptor is Trail Control™. A cruise control system for low-traction, rugged off-road terrain.
Features and equipment
Along with all that power, performance and style, the Ford F-150 Raptor is also a sensationally well-equipped pickup truck with lots of technology and luxury. Standard features include air conditioning, a reverse sensing system, Ford MyKey, automatic high beams, Sync 3 infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, FordPass Connect with Wi-Fi Hotspot, a rearview camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist, Curve Control, tire pressure monitors, and an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat.
If you're prepared to spend more, the Raptor can also be equipped with leather seats that can be heated in the front, a voice-activated navigation system with SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link, and a premium Bang & Olufsen sound system.
