For now at least.
The all-new Ford F-150 is here, and the future for America’s best-selling vehicle for 17 years has never looked brighter. As Ford winds down production on the outgoing F-150, many have been waiting to hear the fate regarding the F-150 Tremor sport truck and, of course, the 6.2-liter V8-powered SVT Raptor. Well, there’s not much to discuss really; the Tremor, Ford has confirmed, will end production later this year.
The end of the current Raptor’s production, however, hasn’t been clearly announced by Ford just yet, but it’s already been made clear that the new F-150 will spawn a new Raptor in a few years. It’s hard to say exactly when the current Raptor will be discontinued because demand for it is still high. We also don’t know whether Ford will offer a direct Tremor replacement either. If we had to guess the answer is yes, but instead of a 3.5-liter V6 under the hood, we wouldn’t be shocked to see Ford offer its new 2.7-liter turbo V6 in regular-cab, sport truck form. The inspiration could even come from its new F-150 Baja Truck.
