Question of the Week: Does the new Raptor pack enough power?

Ford Motor Company announced recently that when the 2017 F-150 Raptor hits the street later this year, it will pack 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque from a specially prepared version of the 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6.

Such figures make the 2017 Raptor the most powerful factory-built F-150 ever, while also being one of the most powerful American production trucks ever – and the most powerful off-road ready production truck ever. The combination of 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque should go a long way in making the new Raptor relatively untouchable by the competition on the road and on the trails, but are Ford truck fans happy with the output?

That is our ‘Question of the Week’ – do you think that the new F150 Raptor has enough power at 450 horsepower and 5510 lb-ft of torque? Do you think that Ford should have aimed even higher and if so, why?
