The build and price website for the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is now live and this means customers will be able to place orders with their dealers. The 2021 Raptor is redesigned with a new engine, new suspension and new shocks.

“Raptor is the original desert truck. We just took it to another level,” said Ali Jammoul, Ford Performance vehicle program director. “The all-new Raptor splices high-speed off-road performance muscle with advanced technology and connectivity that comes together in a unique Built Ford Tough way.”

Ford has also confirmed the High-Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine’s horsepower and torque numbers have been certified.

“I can confirm it has 450 hp @ 5850 rpm and 510 ft-lb @ 3000 rpm,” said Dawn McKenzie Ford Truck Communications Manager. “The 2021 model has better low-end torque, enables greater maximum towing capability of 8,200 pounds and increased maximum payload capability of 1,400 pounds. It brings a projected EPA-estimated 500-mile-plus range, and class-exclusive active valve dual exhaust for throatier engine sound. Remember, Raptor R is coming next year.”

By mentioning Raptor R, she is alluding to the coming addition of a V8 engine that’s expected for the Raptor R version. Many Raptor enthusiasts expressed interest in the V8 engine over the High-Output EcoBoost, even though the previous generation Raptor had a V6 engine.

New Technology in 2021 Ford Raptor
McKenzie told me that the 2021 Raptor is Ford’s most connected Raptor to date.

“The new F-150 Raptor is also our most connected, as it comes with standard over-the-air updates and a new connected experience that can deliver potential features like shareable digital trail maps or other off-road technologies in the future,” she said.

The 2021 Raptor does come with Sync 4 as well as cloud-connected navigation and integration into the FordPass mobile app. Through the app customers can control the truck’s lights and remote start it.

Raptor’s new running gear
As an off-road truck the Raptor is required to have rugged attributes and abilities. With new running gear like a new suspension and new shocks, the 2021 Raptor fulfills that.

“A high-performance off-road pickup is defined by its suspension, and the all-new F-150 Raptor debuts with completely redesigned running gear,” McKenzie said. “It is reengineered with an all-new five-link rear suspension developed specifically for Raptor, designed to deliver more control and power to the ground with greater confidence over rough terrain at high speeds.”

The Raptor is a show off with its new Fox Live Valve internal bypass shocks. The fighter-jet inspired design and inspiration of the 2021 Raptor can get airborne thanks to these shocks. The best-in-class 37-inch tires are confident and tougher than ever, according to McKenzie.

2021 Ford F-150 Tremor Orders To Begin Soon
As we reported last year, Ford is adding the Tremor package to the 2021 Ford F-150 lineup.

“Like Super Duty Tremor and Ranger Tremor, introducing the all-new F-150 Tremor is a direct response to seeing how customers use our trucks to enable their outdoor lifestyles,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “F-150 Tremor provides the additional off-road capability they’re looking for with our latest off-road technologies.”

The price and build website for the 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor opens up June 18. During that time, customers who haven’t ordered the new generation F-150 can also add new features like Ford’s Onboard Scales and Continuously Controlled Damping system.

These late additions to the 14th-generation F-150 are available on all trims for $650. It requires the max towing package.

Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD) is a $695 option. For King Ranch and Platinum, CCD is required to get Onboard Scales and Smart Hitch. CCD is standard on Limited.
