The standard Raptor, which in its current iteration produces 450 horsepower and 410-pound feet of torque, can be described as a super truck
It offers acceleration figures few trucks can match while also being comfortable and a usable daily driver
The 2023 F-150 Raptor R, however, takes everything to the next level.
In fact, it can be described as the perfect example of a hyper truck.
It is aimed directly towards the RAM TRX, and this is obvious in all its specs and figures
But, there's a lot more to it that makes it the king of the jungle.
Producing a truck that can take on the Ram TRX is no easy task. First and foremost, it needs to have the power to match such a vehicle.
This meant that Ford had to equip the Raptor R with one of the most powerful V-8s at their disposal.
This has led to a supercharged heart that produces 700 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque.
Yes, these numbers are enough to shame most sports and supercars you will encounter on the road.
In fact, they are so high that they catapult this behemoth to 60mph in under four seconds.
Normally, fuel efficiency numbers aren’t all that interesting. However, when a truck this heavy uses such a large and powerful engine, you know the numbers will be entertaining.
The EPA has rated the Raptor R at 10 MPG in the city, 15 MPG on the highway, and just 12 MPG combined.
In a world filled with EVs, hybrids, and small turbocharged engines, the Raptor R is a comical break (depending on your point of view).
