    Spying: The Next-Generation Ford Raptor?


    • Ford Appears To Be Testing A Next-Gen Raptor

    The Ford Raptor is a model beloved by many for its ability to drive really quick over the rough stuff. But with the next-generation F-150 switching to aluminum, it seemed the Raptor wouldn't comeback for a repeat performance. But new spy shots that appeared on Autoblog show that the Raptor may be coming back.

    The spy shots show off a F-150 with Raptor parts on the front and rear, while the center is the upcoming 2015 model. Also, our eyes see some beefy A-arm suspension pieces along with the tall ride height.

    We're not sure what is powering this mule, whether it's a V8 or one of Ford's EcoBoost engines.

    Interesting, will watch this one to see what route they go with the powertrain.

    Ecoboost seems rational, although it has had less than stellar reliability for the blue oval boys.

    While boosted small engines have made a reputation for some companies like Subaru, I myself have not seen long term strong turbo engines last compared to a trusty Pushrod V8.
