News brought to you by Colby Valve 2024 F150 Raptor R Makes More Power Than A Ferrari Ford gave us fair warning of this development in September when it said the new model was targeting the title of “most powerful full-size off-road truck ever.” Despite setbacks from union action, recalls, and stock volatility, Ford has delivered on its promise, extracting 20 hp more than the 2023 model year. Not only does this give it an 18-hp advantage over the 2024 Ram TRX, but it also represents more power than its own sibling, the Ford GT, and even the 715-hp Ferrari Purosangue. How’s that for a bragging right? The horsepower bump comes from “reduced air inlet losses” (we’ll call that a bigger intake) and “optimized calibration” (a new ECU tune). Although there’s a wider torque curve as a nice byproduct, overall torque remains the same at 640 lb-ft, meaning the TRX still has a 10 lb-ft advantage. Still, that’s not the number that buyers in this particular truck segment will care most about, and the Raptor R is a few hundred pounds lighter. No other details have been provided, but that’s okay because the facelift for 2024 brought with it Fox Dual Live shocks with new continuously variable rebound controls, enabling better on- and off-road performance. There was also the option of a new modular front bumper that allows more exposure of the front tires, as well as a light bar, 37-inch tires, and other accessories. Ford is taking the V8 scene by the scruff of the neck, taking full advantage of the void left by muscle cars that the Mustang once competed against and the void that will soon come when Stellantis likely gives the TRX a turbocharged six-cylinder and drops the TRX suffix. Add in the fact that Ford is competing in global motorsports, from NASCAR to Le Mans, from Australia’s Supercars series to the artistic craziness of drifting, and the Blue Oval is stealing the performance brand image back from Hemi-powered Hellcats.
