The Ford-F150 pickup truck literally has everything. That includes different body types, trims, gasoline, diesel and hybrid engines. Blue Oval will release the Raptor variant next year which makes them wonder “What is next?”. Why don’t we hybridize the Raptor variant as well? And that is exactly what the Blue Oval carmaker is going to do. The 2020 Ford Raptor Hybrid is coming to the markets.
No doubt, new Raptor will be the best Raptor ever, in so many ways. The second generation is very advanced and luxurious. One of the quickest pickups at the moment will get a fuel economy boost, along with the additional level of torque. This model currently rides on a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and this powertrain will get an electrification.
2020 Ford Raptor Hybrid exterior design and changes
The exterior of the previous and Raptor and the 2020 Ford Raptor Hybrid will be the same. That means the same design language is present once again, with more aggressive styling. However, some additional aluminum work should reduce the truck’s weight. Bolstered beds and black-out features are looking amazing. This pickup looks bulky and it perfectly combines with the stylish character lines. The tailgate now comes with large F-O-R-D lettering in the center.
The taillights will get some further polishing and 2020 Ford Raptor Hybrid will gain new exterior paints Race Red and Lead Foot. That means the Ruby Red and Avalanche paints are no longer available. Raptor is wider than its rival and it comes with a more athletic stance. Panoramic sunroof will be optional once again, but off-roading gear such as skid plates and tow hooks are standard.
2020 Ford Raptor Hybrid interior offers more comfort and luxury
The interior will offer more comfort and luxury than the regular F-150 pickup truck. The 2020 Ford Raptor Hybrid offers a roomy interior, and cabin space is better than the rest of the competition. Loading a couple of more optional features and the interior will look and feel luxurious. New Raptor won’t get interior upgrades, except the updates in the technology departments.
Plenty of soft-touch materials and leather upholstery are providing a real premium feel from the inside. The ambient lighting boost that feels even more. Opting for the Crew Cab configuration will provide the best legroom in the segment.
2020 Ford Raptor Hybrid powertrain
The Blue Oval’s intentions to electrify the Raptor variant are clear. Ford is aware the hybrid powertrain could be the winning ticket for this performance-oriented version. The 2020 Ford Raptor Hybrid is coming and it is raising the stakes. The already powerful pickup truck will now gain even more power and it will get an astonishing fuel economy. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 is the perfect candidate for electrifying.
This output will create up to 450 horses and 500 lb-ft of torque. Perhaps the Raptor Hybrid will offer a driving range solely on electric power.
