2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Engine and Performance

The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew has retained its 3.5L V6 powertrain for the 2021 MY as well. The Ecoboost Twin-Turbo is a detuned version of the engine we saw on the Ford GT in 2017. The power output is 450 hp at 5,000RPM and an impressive torque output of 510 lb-ft at 3,500RPM. The power is delivered to all four wheels. The 10-Speed automatic transmission is paired with paddle shifters for a seamless experience.

The massive pickup truck is not just for show as it is capable of extreme off-roading. Moreover, the towing capacity of the F-150 Raptor is enhanced by 200 lbs, now it can pull up to 8,200 lbs. When it comes to acceleration, the F-150 Raptor shoots like a bullet to attain a speed of 60 mph from a standstill in just 5.7 seconds. For a quarter-mile run, it takes around 13.8 seconds, which is awesome for a 5,508 pounds pickup truck. The Raptor can drag its massive weight to a top speed of only 107 mph, limited by off-road tires.

The F-150 Raptor is comparatively cheaper than the RAM 1500 TRX. With a supercharged HEMI V8, the RAM 1500 TRX beats the F-150 Raptor with its supercar-like performance. Both the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro and Nissan Titan PRO-4X offer underpowered V8 engines, however, they are good enough considering the price. As compared to its arch-rival RAM 1500 TRX, the F-150 Raptor has a slightly better-towing capacity, while both pickups have similar payload capacity. However, the underpowered rivals Tundra TRD Pro and the Titan PRO-4X are more capable with their 9,000 lbs of towing capacity and 1,500 lbs of payload capacity.

How well does the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew handle?

The Ford F-150 Raptor is a true off-road pick-up with its unmatchable capabilities, balance, and handling. With the five-link rear suspension, it has a dynamic axle positioning irrespective of the terrain. The FOX racings shocks are paired with huge 24-inch coil springs that ensure proper handling and comfort. The overall suspension of the F-150 Raptor is sports-tuned to deliver a faster response with its electronic control technology that adapts to the terrain quickly and avoids heating up.

Driving in the desert has never been this fun as the low friction fluid shocks have up to 1,000 lbs of damping per corner. With up to 7 driving modes, the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor adjusts the steering wheel, stability control, suspension, active valve exhaust, damping system, throttle control, and even the transmission ratio. To ease the off-roading, you have the 'Trail 1-pedal drive' that combines the function of brake and gas into one pedal.

Braking Performance

With immense capabilities, the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor gets decent control and braking performance. You get automated emergency braking, terrain management system with ABS, hill descent control, and hill hold control. For safe braking, the F-150 Raptor is equipped with four-wheel ventilated disc brakes. At the front, you have 13.8-inch brake rotors, and at the back, there are smaller 13.7-inch rotors. With that, the massive truck stops at a distance of 134 feet from 60 mph.

Even with its 6,396 pounds of weight, which makes it the heaviest option, the RAM 1500 TRX is the fastest to stop from a speed of 60 mph, thanks to its massive 15.0-inch brake rotors. On the other hand, the Ford F-150 Raptor has similar brakes to the Tundra TRD Pro and Titan PRO-4X, still, it stops quicker than them, being the lightest pick-up truck in the group.

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Fuel Economy

Without any compromises on the performance, the Ford F-150 Raptor has a decent fuel economy. With its 450 hp Twin-Turbo V6, you get 15 mpg in the city, 18 mpg on the highway, and 16 mpg of the combined economy. The bigger 36.0-gallon fuel tank is standard with the truck. It takes the highway range beyond 600 miles. With such an economy, you don't have to worry about gas stations on a long trip.

As compared to the rivals, the Ford F-150 fairs well with its decent fuel economy and a massive fuel tank. The Nissan Titan PRO-4X offers the best fuel economy with its 20 MPG on the highway. The RAM 1500 TRX is too powerful to deliver decent fuel economy. This makes the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew a clear winner when you consider the range.

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Interior

As it is a full-size pickup truck, the windshield visibility is substantial. The reworked version is more advanced than the previous generation. Ford is hanging on with the boxy cabin design which is quite the space saver, to be honest. The spacious cabin offers seating space for up to 5 passengers. It is designed with Alcantara leather and chrome accents. The dashboard layout is more like a cockpit where you get multiple displays embedded in the dash surrounded by numerous controls. The HVAC is conveniently placed below the infotainment, and you have a 12-inch digital gauge cluster to stay connected with the ride. The leather steering is paired with paddle shifters.

For the best comfort levels, you have leather-trimmed bucket seats at the front. They offer 10-way power adjustments with driver lumbar support. Moreover, you get heating and ventilation.

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Exterior

The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew looks a lot different than the regular F-150 pickup trucks. Ford has made necessary distinctions to the Raptor as it looks more aggressive and capable in the whole lineup of pickups. As compared to the previous generation, it has remarkable updates to the exterior design and stance of the truck. With up to 8 sporty color options and black accents, the Ford F-150 Raptor looks irresistible. The front fascia gets massive LED headlamps with yellow DRLs integrated with the huge black grille. The visibility is much better with body-colored heated side mirrors. With massive fenders, the F-150 Raptor is wider.

The rear is updated as well where you get reworked LED tail lamps and a new rectangular decal with Ford badging on the tailgate (similar to the front grille) finished in black. To give it better strength, you get steel front and rear bumpers as well as aluminum skid plates. The dual exhausts pipes are uplifted and are adjoined with the rear bumper. The massive pickup truck stands tall above the ground with its 12.0-inch ground clearance that is a result of its massive 24-inch FOX racing Shocks. With the 37-inch off-road tires, the ground clearance goes up to 13.1 inches. The tires are wrapped around 17-inch cast-aluminum wheels. The overall stance is quite muscular.

With its lightweight aluminum and steel construction, the Ford F-150 Raptor is the lightest in the whole segment. Rivals such as Tundra and Titan are slightly heavier. However, the RAM 1500 TRX Crew Cab surpasses it by 800 pounds. Also, the TRX has the biggest dimensions and is even wider than the F-150 Raptor.

With a maximum 13.1-inch ground clearance, it rides higher than any other pickup truck, and that's how it tackles the off-roads with ease. No other rival offers ground clearance more than 11.9 inches, where the RAM 1500 TRX has a surprising ground clearance of just 8.0 inches. The short 145.0-inch wheelbase provides a great balance both on-road and off-road to the Raptor. Standout exterior features include:

  • LED headlamps and tail lamps with yellow DRLs
  • Black body accents
  • Bigger black grille
  • Body-colored huge side mirrors
  • Steel bumpers
  • Dual exhaust pipes

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Competition

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew vs 2021 RAM 1500 TRX Crew Cab

The F-150 Raptor is the most popular high-performance pickup truck. With its exceptional performance, off-roading, and towing capabilities, it offers a great value for its price. There's no compromise in terms of technology, comfort, and convenience. The RAM 1500 TRX is a tough rival though with its 702 hp Supercharged HEMI that's really thrilling. Yet it is no match to the Raptor when it comes to extreme off-roading and towing capabilities.

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew vs 2021 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Crew Cab

Being the most expensive pickup truck in Ford's lineup, the F-150 Raptor is not deprived of any feature that makes your experience better. If you compare it with the Toyota Tundra TRD Pro, the F-150 Raptor is spacious and well equipped. Still, the Tundra TRD Pro is ahead with its better towing and payload capacity and is more suitable as a daily driver. The F-150 Raptor comes into action with its onboard tech, off-roading performance, and superb performance.

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew vs 2021 Nissan Titan PRO-4X Crew Cab

When you compare the Ford F-150 Raptor with the Nissan Titan PRO-4X, the competition is really close. On one side, we have the Raptor that can do wonders with its 450 hp V6 engine, and yet it delivers a dynamic cabin experience with onboard assistance features, comfort, and entertainment. The Nissan Titan PRO-4X, on the other hand, with its Endurance V8 offers a near similar package at a low price. The Titan PRO-4X doesn't have extraordinary performance yet is quite capable when it comes to the economy, towing, and payload capacity.

2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew Final Verdict

The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCrew has received major updates to make the cabin experience better. Outside, it is a rugged off-roader that goes like the wind in the sand while you can get cozy inside the cabin. The cabin quality is upscale where you have a decent design and mild sporty approach with the carbon fiber accents and paddle shifters. Undoubtedly, both the powertrain and cabin make it desirable. For $64,145, it may seem overpriced, but the truckers know that it is worth every penny.
