  • HPE Ford F-150 Raptor with V-8 swap

    The second-generation Ford F-150 Raptor ditched its 6.2-liter V-8 for a twin-turbo V-6. While that's fine and dandy, it certainly doesn't provide the same soundtrack. Enter Hennessey Performance Engineering, which has installed a 5.0-liter supercharged Coyote V-8 engine to appease those who can't swallow a V-6-powered F-150 Raptor. New video from the company shows the V-8-swapped 2018 F-150 Raptor on the dyno where it makes 557 horsepower and 449 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. The V-8 and supercharger help the off-road performance pickup best the standard Raptor by a 258 hp in total as...

  • 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

    The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is one heck of a capable truck off-road. That much we've known for awhile, but if you've ever wondered what the suspension looks like while the truck is tackling jumps, mud, and all sorts of off-road terrain, this video is for you. It's highly entertaining to watch as the Fox Racing shocks and the rest of the suspension does its best to soak up every imperfection delivered by the off-road terrain. We're able to do just that because TheStraightPipes put a camera down there and did some spirited off-roading. The extra-wide sidewalls of the BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A...

    It was the question burning on our minds for all of 10 minutes: What's the quickest way to conquer a mountain? Around, or over?

The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor has already made a name for itself as one of the fastest ways over tricky terrain. Its twin-turbocharged V-6 engine pumps...
