All lovers of off-road driving know about the Ford F-150 Raptor. It is a large pickup truck which is specifically built to tackle off-road terrain. It has high-performance shock absorbers, a V6 engine that is turbocharged to produce 450 horsepower and an efficient 10-speed automatic transmission. This makes it powerful enough for some of the toughest trails out there. However, an even bigger version of this pickup truck is expected. It is known as the 2021 Ford F-250 Megaraptor. Here is all that we know about it.
As far as we know, the 2021 Megaraptor was developed by a vehicle customization establishment which is known as F250R. The shop is located in Arizona. It essentially took an F-150 Raptor and made it much bigger and much better.
Reports indicate that the company combined a Ford F250 Heavy Duty body with the suspension and performance of the F-150 Raptor. This resulted in a huge truck that is capable of handling any off-road situation.

Main characteristics of the 2021 Ford F-250 Megaraptor
From the information which we have, the 2021 Ford F-250 Megaraptor has heightened fenders. It also has 46-inch tires. Online reports indicate that some Bilstein 5100 shock absorbers and a 4-inch lift kit were combined to make the wheels fit on this truck. It also has some heavy duty ten-lug patterns.
From online renderings of the truck, it has a flat grey and sky blue paint job all around. It is also expected to be powered by a mighty engine. There are chances that the 2021 Ford F-250 is going to be powered by a 6.7 liter Powerstroke engine. Also known as the Ford Scorpion V8, this engine produces a total of 450 horsepower and 935 lb-ft of torque.
We also suspect that some additions were made to the engine so as to make it more powerful. This addition is a Precision Turbo 6466 Gen 2 CEA upgrade kit. It is expected to boost the torque all the way to 1,400 lb-ft. The truck runs on diesel.
Quite a number of details are revealed by the renderings of this truck. We can confidently predict its exterior appearance based on these renderings. Its front bumper is simply studded steel. It is covered in black lacquer and provides a strong base upon which the large radiator can sit.
The 2021 Ford F-250 Megaraptor is bound to have a large, boxy radiator grille which occupies much of its front fascia. This provides enough air intake for the large engine under the hood. All signs also indicate that it has a pair of LED headlights sandwiching this section. They will most likely retain the characteristic mid-split that all Ford raptors usually have. A pair of minimalist LED fog lights is situated under each headlight.

The big truck has a clamshell hood which extends to the upper section of the radiator grille. The rear view mirrors are huge and boxy. They also feature indicators on their lower corners. From our estimations, these mirrors are attached to the body by a pair of hinges. The big truck has some fender flares. They provide extra room for the big truck’s wheels.
We are quite confident that the new Raptor has a double cabin setup. It is also expected to have a large capacity cargo bay. Towards its rear, there’s a pair of LED taillights. We are positive that they have a wraparound design which adds appeal to the truck. From the renderings, we can confirm that its wheel wells, grille, front bumper, rims, and underbody are all finished in glossy black color. This is a fitting color combination for this truck.
We can predict that the Ford F-250 Megaraptor will have a performance-oriented interior. The new truck is quite likely to have a stripped down steering wheel. There’ll be three spokes providing some space for some tactile buttons. The instrument gauge is highly likely to be digital. This provides the driver with a vivid view of the odometer, mileage, rev counter, and gear selection.
The center stack is quite likely to have a 10-inch touch-sensitive screen which will help the driver control the big truck’s engine and suspension settings. Through this screen, they will be able to adjust aspects such as the differential settings, the suspension’s tightness, and navigation.
We are also confident that the new truck will provide its occupants with access to infotainment options such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This big truck is expected to seat 5 passengers on 2 rows. It is also quite likely to be upholstered in leather, Ultrasuede or Alcantara.
Price, Release Date, and Availability
The new 2021 Ford F-250 Megaraptor is most likely going to have a price tag that starts at $28,000. If you would like any additional features or equipment, they increase the price some more.
