The Raptor is unchanged for the 2020 model year but still benefits from revised adaptive Fox Racing dampers and slight trim improvements that have been added for 2019. The palette includes three new colors: Classic Silver, Lead Foot, and Rapid Red. The Raptor owns the path, thanks to its large all-terrain tires, its lane-filling position and its widened body.
The Raptor’s long-distance suspension gives it both stunning off-road capability and impressive ride comfort. Its 450-hp twin-turbo V-6 and 10-speed automatic transmission can reach 60 mph at only 5.1 seconds. Although its vast dimensions make it a bear to navigate in tight quarters, it can also roll over pesky car parks with ease. Compared to traditional full-size pickups, the Raptor is on a completely different level, combining serious abilities as explained in Ford Raptor 2020 specification and review below.
Ford Raptor 2020 Specifications and Review: The General Performance
With Ford’s twin-turbo V-6 engines packed into everything from the F-150s to its GT supercar, it’s no wonder that the company chose to power its high-performance desert truck with one. While the preceding Raptor’s impressive V-8 might seem profane to the purists, the new 450-hp twin-turbo V-6 truck is nuts. The paddle-shifted 10-speed automatic transmission is a very powerful, but sometimes the right gear can be found. Ford’s pickup is a street-legal Trophy truck.
Its stunning suspension allows a composite road cruising as well as a stunning control when you’re cruising across the Mojave Desert or strolling across state-owned sand dunes. People admire the Raptor’s pothole-smoothing, family-carrying duality so much. On the pavement, the brake pedal responds evenly to deceleration requests. The soft suspension, however, contributes to the dive of the nose under hard braking.
The sensation is shifting off-road.

The soft suspension, however, contributes to the dive of the nose under hard braking. The off-road sensation changes, in a way that the brakes and large all-terrain tires feel more reassuring. While the Raptor is too much of a truck for most people, it can take up to 8000 pounds and carry up to 1200 pounds in its bed.
The Exterior of Ford Raptor 2020
Fancy, the full-size pickups are pricey, and the Raptor is not an exception. However, due to its resourcefulness and the extensiveness of performance that other production vehicle can match, its starting price is a relative bargain. The larger SuperCrew model is definitely the choice for its large back seat, and the optional 4.10:1 front axle with a Torsen limited-slip differential is a must. The addition of the Equipment Group 801A mid and its power-sliding rear window, exterior mirrors, power-folding, blind spot monitoring and other driver assistance features ensures a well-rounded and sensibly priced package.
High-quality aluminum alloy and tough steel frame make the 2020 Raptor about 500 pounds lighter than its previous models. The huge hood is part of the main show that gives such a commanding presence on the road. The large wheels, the high position and the big fenders make this truck look even tougher.
The front bumper was uniquely designed to show some of the suspension components and its orange Fox shock absorbers. This design also provides more off-road clearance. There are also some vents, the classic Raptor badge and the large exhausts that complete the super aggressive look of the 2020 Ford Raptor.
The giant Raptor is equipped as an XLT, but adds a number of off-road features such as a larger fuel tank, a Fox Racing Shox, aggressive exterior styling, cab upholstery switches, 17-inch wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires, and a Trail Control Mode system. In its crash test, the NHTSA awarded the 2020 Ford Raptor a 5-star rating.
The IIHS has yet to test the 2020 model, but the almost identical 2019 version scored great in every test category, with the exception of the headlights where it got poor score. But, it has been improved for the newest model. What’s more, crash prevention technology has been rated Superior.
The Interior of Ford Raptor 2020
The interior of the Raptor is relaxed and laid back, which is sort of at odds with its macho exterior. It has available features such as beautifully bolstered heated or cooled front seats, leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel that comes with a racy red center stripe. The calming, relaxing interior of the Raptor is at odds with its macho face.
It’s practical in base form, but features available such as leather seat upholstery, heated and cooled front seats, and exclusive color choices can add a touch of luxury. The Raptor’s 5.5-foot cargo bed is as valuable as those of its short-bed competitors, and its internal cubby storage is the finest of rivals. Those that need a longer bed that is easier to load should consider the standard Raptor.
The Ford Raptor was the 2018 MotorTrend Truck of the Year and the 2020 model is near-twin. In describing the long-term 2018 tester, it was said that its 2.7-liter turbocharged V-6 rarely felt underpowered and did a bizarre job of pulling a trailer.
The SuperCab was also found comfortable enough in the rear quarters, calling it an appealing option for those who don’t need a spacious SuperCrew. It is also found that the 10-speed transmission appeared to search for gears, and that the six-speed base refused to slow down. It’s also agreed that Ford rides and handles a truck well and that the interior quality of the Raptor can easily pass as a luxury vehicle.
The Ford Raptor 2020 specifications and reviews above provide detail information about the car. Its superb off-road capability becomes the major strength of the car. Besides, is strong drivetrain offerings as well as its excellent utility are the other magnets that attract buyers. Furthermore, the endless variety of configuration becomes another plus point.
