Sizing them up
The two of these vehicles are variations of the 14th-era Ford F-150, our Edmunds Prime Rated Truck for 2022. Let us start off with the hybrid model, which pairs Ford’s acquainted twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 motor with a battery pack and an electrical motor. The goal of this method is ostensibly performance — its EPA estimate of up to 25 mpg put together is a big promoting place. But it also generates hundreds of get-up-and-go. The F-150 Hybrid, or PowerBoost, tends to make 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque versus the standard 3.5-liter twin-turbo’s 400 hp and 500 lb-ft. On the other hand, its examined bodyweight of 5,766 pounds — around a thousand additional than an equivalent non-hybrid F-150 — is certain to consider a chunk out of functionality.
At a look, the F-150 Raptor is greater suited for a race in the grime. This is a dedicated substantial-speed off-street equipment, with a wider stance than the F-150 and huge 37-inch tires (an option) for churning up earth and quickly modifying direction. It also gets a more severe model of the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 which is superior for 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. So that is a lot more horsepower but less torque than the hybrid-run F-150. Though the hybrid undoubtedly presents the scales a workout, nevertheless, the F-150 Raptor challenges breaking them. We weighed our check design at 5,961 lbs . — almost three tons even.
