There's really no arguing with the off-road credibility of the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor in any guise, but the new 6.2-liter V-8 model is the baddest version yet, and it looks like it may be more powerful than first thought. New results from tests performed by Pickuptrucks.com reveal a 344-horsepower rating at the wheels--up about 20 horsepower from previous independent tests.
The 6.2-liter V-8 under the hood is rated at 411 horsepower at the crank, so the 344-horsepower figure amounts to an all-wheel drivetrain loss of about 16.4 percent--not shabby at all, and hinting that the engine may actually be generating a bit more than its paper figures. Torque figures are likewise beefy: dyno numbers from the latest test show 361 pound-feet, compared to the 434 pound-feet rating at the crank, a loss of about 17 percent.
