It’s only been days since Ford welcomed the third-generation F-150 Raptor in its lineup and its future release is already drawing the public’s attention. On the day the automaker launched the new F-150 variant, it confirmed plans to release a Raptor R version for next year.

The Raptor R is a high-output model of the new Raptor and will be Ford’s direct answer to the Ram 1500 TRX. While the F-150 Raptor also has the ability to compete with the Ram truck, the upcoming Raptor R will be equipped with a more powerful setup.
