The 2020 Ford Raptor features a twin-turbocharged high-output 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine that dishes out 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. This Ford Raptor engine pairs to a paddle-shifted 10-speed automatic transmission to offer a smooth performance both on and off-road.


2020 Ford F-150 Performance

The 2020 Ford Raptor is a capable truck. We expect the Ford Raptor towing capacity to be up to 8,000 pounds with a payload rating of around 1,200 lbs. The new Ford Raptor won't struggle to produce decent mpg numbers either for such a high-performance full-size truck. It's currently estimated at 18 mpg on the highway, which is great once you examine the strength of the engine and what is needed to power such a beast.

2020 Ford Raptor Off-Road Specs

If you plan on having the 2020 Ford Raptor for off-road adventures, you won't be disappointed. It includes 4WD, skid plates, a locking rear differential and off-road racing suspension enhanced by FOX live valve shocks with Trail Control and a Terrain Management System. It's also possible to upgrade some of the components for even further performance.

2020 Ford Raptor Driving Modes

If nothing changes with the 2020 Ford Raptor, we can expect access to all 3 major driving modes: Normal, Sport, and Off-Road. These main categories consist of more specialized subsequent driving modes such as Tow/Haul, Snow/Wet, Baja, Rock Crawl, and Mud/Sand. These driving modes have been so popular that Ford has included them since the start of the second generation of Ford Raptors that started back in 2017. All of these offer complete customization, so you get the ride you hoped for on any road condition.

2020 Ford Raptor Interior Design

The 2020 Ford Raptor provides plenty of interior comforts, no matter how long the journey or how rough that off-road trail is. It comes with Ford SYNC 3, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Add on the cooled and heated front seats for maximum enjoyment in any weather. Standard safety features include a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assist and lane-departure warning. We expect to see a good safety rating on the new Ford F-150 Raptor with the help of all of this technology.

2020 Ford Raptor Exterior

The 2020 Ford Raptor comes with a 5.5-ft cargo bed. This helps if you want to use your 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor to haul any necessary cargo. If you want to take advantage of a larger bed length option, you might want to consider a different F-150 trim level or look for a local auto body shop that could possibly make a custom truck bed.

2020 Ford Raptor Changes

The 2020 Ford Raptor remains mostly unchanged for the new model year. It does have updated adaptive Fox Racing dampers for increased performance. There is also the addition of three new exterior paint colors: Iconic Silver, Rapid Red and Lead Foot. You can find both the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor and 2020 Ford Raptor at Phil Long Ford Denver.


A Look Back at the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor

Second Generation 2017 Ford Raptor 
The year 2017 brought us so many wonderful things in the automotive world like the Ford Raptor F-150, as one of the fleets of new vehicles that had us quickly ditching our old and out dated ones. Among those exciting new vehicles of the time, there was the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor starting it's second generation with a brand new design. This year marked the release of an incredible powertrain with a 10-speed automatic transmission and a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 with 450 horsepower. And if you didn't know already, the 2017 Ford Raptor offered 6 new driving modes to enhance your ride for those off-roading trips to the desert. People fell in love with this truck after just one ride.

Introduction of 6 New Driving Modes

The 2017 Ford Raptor introduced 6 driving modes dependent upon the type of earth you were intending to conquer. The driving modes were one of the most exciting parts about the new Raptor according to critics. The first mode options are Normal which is useful for daily trips around town, Sport for sharp turns through valleys, Weather for rainy or snowy weather, Mud/Sand for situations when mudslides happen, Rock Crawl to get your through the toughest off-roading trips, and Baja for high-speed desert drags at 100 miles per hour. Critics are a big fan of the Baja mode which when switched on from the wheel console controls shifts into 4x4 high. This pickup is meant to go faster, and the faster it goes, the quieter the cabin.

Speed Features

This 5,500-pound truck featured a dynamic new set of suspension and handling capabilities so you felt safe traveling at high speeds. Like it's F-series siblings, the Raptor has an all-aluminum body which helped it shed 500 pounds of weight. Ford also decided to add new 3-inch Fox Racing shocks that were 44 percent bigger and add 0.8 and 1.9 inches of suspension for the front and rear. For better control, there is a 9-stage bypass damping and a hydraulic bump to keep you from bottoming out and help keep the heat at bay. At lot of these same features still exist in new Ford Raptors today.

The Raptor won the 2017 10 Best Trucks of the year award, and models nearly sold out. Every new vehicle in the full-size truck segment with a base price less that $80k were invited to get evaluated for the award.
