Report: Ford Raptor R to get turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost V6

2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor R

We’re not really sure how much more Ford can prove its tough, off-roading skills as it already has made huge headlines with the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. However, according to sources, Ford will take it all a step further with a new Raptor R later this year that will be powered by a the company’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6.

The Raptor R, which is a competition racing version of the F-150 SVT Raptor, has already raced in the Baja 1000. It completed that race powered by Ford’s naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 that produces 500-hp.

So how much power will the turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost V6 Raptor R make? We’re not sure but it’s probably going to come close to the current 6.2L V8 Raptor R – if not top it, according to PickupTrucks.com

Stay tuned for more details.
