Anyone think it’s remotely possible they shift to a V8 in the new Raptor?

I am not sure I believe it will happen.

Limited edition R model with V8 would be nice. Saves me from having to build one from scratch.

My 99 F150 is at 251,000 miles and was seriously considering new electric truck for a replacement. I may have to change direction if the new Raptor has 700+ Hp V8 !!!

Availability I am told is late '21. I'll get one in '22 after the $50K ADM trucks are sold.

I doubt it.

I was surprised that Ford did the Godzilla for the Heavy Duty. Would like to see them do a plug-and-play crate of that engine. I'm sure some of the creative engineering hot rod people will do some neat things with them anyway.

Carl, I bet you could have a good sideline business.

Other than diesel, I don't think you will ever see Ford do another "new" V-8.

Oops! My bad. Not paying attention to my Ford Performance e-mails.

Be interesting to see what kind of things are done with it.

You think John Kaase has a few?

It doesn't really look that different than a regular Raptor.

You’d think the people who invented gunpowder would have more original ideas in their skulls.
