Ford has not revealed much regarding the power production and torque production figures of their prized truck the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew. The only news is that Ford is going to do away with the older 6.2-liters V8 which used to be very heavy. A new model, which is a 3.5-liters V6, will be sought after as a viable replacement. Given the fact that the 6.2-liters V8 engine had a power production capability of 411 hp and torque of 434 lb-ft, it can be safely assumed that this new 3.5-liters V6 will be able to produce more than 450 hp and more amount of torque. As for the transmission, we are in for a jaw-dropping surprise as a very powerful automatic transmission with as many as 10 gears will be mated to the 3.5-liters engine. Fuel economy is yet to be tested and announced.
