The news shouldn’t take you by surprise, as the 2015 F-150 was unveiled with four engines, with the 6.2-liter V8 fitted in the 2014 SVT Raptor missing from the lineup. This doesn’t mean that the new Raptor can’t be equipped with a beefed-up 5.0-liter V8, but we won’t know for sure until the Blue Oval company says anything about the future of its high-performance truck.
We do hope that the next-generation F-150 gets a Raptor badge, especially now that Ford developed a 700-pound lighter aluminum-alloy body.
In related news, Ford decided to discontinue the F-150 Tremor sport truck once the next-generation model goes on sale.
