Fight of Titans: Ford F-150 Raptor R regains title of most powerful pickup!



The rivalry between car manufacturers has brought great and positive news to those who need it most… We, the buyers. After all, with rivalry in force, companies tend to try to offer their best offers to surpass their rivals and of course they combine everything at a competitive price.

That said, now we return to the rivalry between Ford and Dodge in the world of large pickups!

In the end, some time after winning the title of “most powerful pickup on the market”, in stock format, the The 711-horsepower Dodge Ram TRX just lost its throne to the new Ford F-150 Raptor R.

Raptor R is once again the most powerful pickup ever!

A curious fact is that the fight was to regain this title, as it was something that the Ford F-150 Raptor achieved for many years and achieved again.

Just a matter of time?

In truth, yes, it’s a matter of time and engine. In fact, when Dodge’s offer arrived, Ford only had the EcoBoost V6 turbo engine and the V8 engine implemented last year. These engines did not exceed the peak power of Dodge’s famous 6.2 L V8 HEMI engine.

However, it seems that the power was “contained” in the V8 version, due to the decision of Ford engineers to find the best balance between strength and power and use in heavy vehicles.

After all, the same engine is capable of surpassing 760 hp in the famous Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. But, for 2024 things changed and Ford found a middle ground!

Ford F-150 Raptor R now reaches 730 horsepower!

The power increase now comes from a new engine calibration with updates to the air intake, from changes to the hood, to body panels that now further help with air flow to the engine air filter.

Thus, now the new peak power is 730 hp, but in terms of torque we have the same number of 868 nm.

In short, the fight for the title of “most powerful pickup on the market” may not be over yet. However, it won’t be easy to beat Ford’s offer, and that’s even with Dodge’s famous HEMI engine. But what do you think about the news, will Dodge come back even more powerful?
