THIS IS THE FORD F-150 RAPTOR R ENGINE

The Window Sticker Was Also Allegedly Teased

2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R Engine

Earlier this month The Raptor Connection on Instagram shared a photo that can be used as evidence that the Ford F-150 Raptor R super truck was receiving a powerful 5.2 Liter supercharged V8 engine. That has been all but confirmed by the company itself at this point, as The Raptor Connection got a hold of a window sticker for the 2023 Ford Raptor R sharing pertinent details. The window sticker reveals the type of engine, and other goodies we can expect to see in the super truck. And not only that, they uploaded an alleged photo of the engine, with the caption titled “Carnivor.” Oh.

Whatever they want to call it, the 5.2L supercharged V8 is based on the 760 hp Predator engine that’s also appeared in the S550 Mustang Shelby GT500. But with extra room for cooling and heat exchangers, we could see even more power out of this super truck. We saw the same effect happen with the Escalade-V after all.


To compare, the Ram 1500 TRX pushes out 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque out of its 6.2L supercharged V8 engine that’s otherwise known as the Hellcat. We know the Predator is capable of more power though as Hertz just debuted a 900+ horsepower Predator engine Mustang you can rent. Total output and official name for the Ford Raptor R engine remain a mystery for now. Either way it’s going to be a big step up from the current F-150 Raptor power plant, a 3.5L twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 that produces 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque.

Engine specs aside, the window sticker reveals that the Ford Raptor R will get black Recaro leather seats, and 37-inch tires on 17-inch unique forged aluminum wheels. No price has been announced yet but with the TRX starting MSRP at $77,880 and the current 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor sitting at $69,525 it is reasonable to expect the Raptor R to carry an MSRP of at least $85,000 or higher. That’s before the inevitable dealer markup, of course.
