The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R will roar to existence on July 18, but legendary supercharger producer Whipple by now has a package for the truck. The Raptor R’s V8 is now supercharged per Whipple’s listing, but Whipple suggests its unit can guidance a lot more than 2,000 horsepower with the correct elements and configuration.
Whipple states its supercharger capabilities a new intercooler design with extra than two times the volume of the stock blower. The dual inlet/outlet set up is made to make improvements to cooling above the inventory unit, Whipple promises. A 132mm throttle overall body and 145mm chilly air consumption supply massive air and fuel for brutal power and torque.
The company makes it apparent that the supercharger package is only intended for use in levels of competition and notes that it shouldn’t be put in on trucks meant for each day highway driving. That explained, a number of states in the Midwest and South do not have super rigorous emissions specifications, so the Whipple kit could slip via the inspection (or deficiency of inspection) process.
The Raptor R is rumored to appear with the supercharged 5.2-liter V8 from the Mustang Shelby GT500. In that automobile, it makes 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque, so the truck won’t be hurting for power from the manufacturing unit. We do not know considerably about solutions or capabilities nonetheless but be expecting the similar off-street go-rapid bits from the conventional Raptor.
Ford hasn’t outlined particulars on pricing or launch date nonetheless, but hope to see a appreciable premium about the “normal” Raptor. The 2022 Raptor starts at just around $70,000 right after destination, so the R’s value tag could creep dangerously shut to the 6-determine mark with choices and accessories.
