Default New exhaust on Raptor

Not sure if you Raptor guys have seen or discussed this already?

Raptor.RedAccents.g01.KGP.ed-X2 II
A lot of buzz is going around about what will happen to the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. Ford will not comment on whether it will offer a new Raptor, but given the performance pickup truck's stellar average transaction price and solid North American and global demand, it's difficult to imagine how Ford could walk away from the model. Still, with Ford moving to aluminum and dropping the 6.2-liter V-8 motor, the future for this pickup could be tricky.

To date no one has seen any prototypes on the streets, but our spy shooters did see something a little odd recently and shot us a quick note. Here's what they shared:

"We caught a curious Ford Raptor test truck wearing some very purposeful red accents that point to uh we don't know what, exactly.

"At first glance, we assumed this Raptor was a privately owned truck with an owner who wanted to set his truck apart with some custom-sprayed red paint. Those thoughts changed, however, when we realized it was wearing Ford manufacturer 'M' plates, suggesting it's something being toyed with inside Ford's engineering or marketing departments.

"More than a uniquely colorized truck, this Raptor also sports dual exhaust pipes jutting straight out from under the rear bumper. All current-production Raptors have a single, side-exit exhaust.

"We don't know if this truck is a curious one-of truck experimenting with EcoBoost exhaust notes or if it portends anything more meaningful to the market. The Raptor seems overdue for some special edition packaging, so maybe this is a preview of something being considered to keep Raptor fans interested until a hoped-for second-gen Raptor can get ready using the new aluminum F-Series as its basis."

We know that Ford did much of its early 2015 Ford F-150 testing in plain sight, showcasing a completely aluminum body and new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine in a 2013 Best in the Desert off-road race, so who's to say this newly packaged Raptor isn't fully aluminum and housing a smaller V-6 engine? Next time we'll ask our spy shooters to bring a magnet along so they can toss it onto a body panel as it goes by.

I have seen this spy photo also. If I was a betting man I say there will be a new Raptor in late 2015. Or even earlier. Alum body and a smaller motor, like a TT v6. Just my thoughts.

I really doubt they'll put a v6 in the Raptor.

Rumors also suggest 5.0 Ecoboost, but I'll believe that when it's announced, but that would be awesome.
