2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R and 2022 Ram 1500 TRX are both excellent in the performance pickup class.

While the RAM 1500 TRX has more power with 702 horsepower and

650 pound-feet of torque from its supercharged V8, the F-150 Raptor R offers 700 horsepower and

640 pound-feet of torque with its engine, and can accelerate just as quickly despite its additional weight.

Ultimately, for those seeking an aggressive off-road truck, the Ford F-150 Raptor R is the superior choice over the Ram 1500 TRX.

The F-150 Raptors and the Bronco Raptors both feature twin-turbo V6 engines under the hood.

Bolted onto that monster V8 (which we will get into in a second) is a 10-speed automatic, a10R80, similar to that found on EcoBoost V6 trucks.

All this works together to put 700 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque down through that 10-speed automatic.

This high-output engine makes as much as 450 horsepower and best-in-class 510-lb-ft torque.

It is all about this motor, which only adds about 100 pounds to its similarly equipped V6 brethren.

The 5.2-liter is an upgrade from the motor found in the Mustang Shelby GT500, but upgraded for the duties of an off-roader.
