At the time of writing, motorists who want a Ford F-150 with supercar-like power you can expect the V8-powered Raptor to make a comeback in 2022 or turn to aftermarket. They will soon have a third option, according to a recent report: ford Performance announced a supercharger kit in the 2021 edition of the SEMA show that it was developed specifically for the latest generation of the Coyote 5.0-liter V8 engine.
Enthusiastic website Ford Authority explained that Ford needed to develop a new supercharger kit to the 14th generation F-150 because the available V8 has cylinder deactivation technology. While the official information has yet to be released, the post found that the supercharger increases the truck output to 700 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque; Note that to achieve those figures you need to power the eight-cylinder premium gasoline engine. 0-60 mph reportedly takes less than five seconds, which is blazingly fast.
For context, the V8 makes 400 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque when left standard and naturally aspirated. The kit that unlocks 300 horses includes a Whipple supercharger, an intercooler, an air intake hose, and the necessary hardware to install the different parts.
No availability or pricing information has been announced; We are still waiting for an official announcement from the Blue Oval. In the meantime, Ford Authority added that the supercharger is covered for three years, 30,000 miles warranty and does not void the factory warranty if installed by an authorized distributor because it has been tested and approved by Ford. It is also legal to install it in all 50 states.
