Default New 2015 Raptor

Does anyone have any info on the new Raptor? Are they going to wait a year till they release it?

There will be no 2015 raptor. Its all speculative about anything past that. Rumor is 2016 but nothing official.

Since 6.2 missing from 2015 engine line up it will be interesting to see what engine Ford will go with.

One thing for sure, Ford will definitely bring the Raptor back. Too popular not to.

for the volume of raptors sold there should not a be an issue with placing the 6.2 in there or supercharging the 5.0 like we shall see in the mustang

it will just keep paying the gas guzzler tax and move on

Yeah, if they ecoboost the 5.0, it would put out better gas milage and more power than the 6.2, i feel like thats what ford is going to create next.

Maybe this is a stupid idea, but what about the Raptor with the improved Powerstroke 6.7L? I just read that is has 860 lb/ft of torque.
