Forza 6 “Confirms” 2017 Raptor Horsepower and Torque
Now that Forza Motorsports 6 has been released on the world, we have a chance to play one of favorite racing simulators. With 460 standard cars, and more expansion options, the game is surely going to be a success. Additionally, being a simulator, the game has details on the cars, whether or not they have been released to the public.
The 2017 Ford Raptor is available in the game, and is painted in the Liquid Blue (assuming you don’t customize it) we so much enjoy, but won’t get. But there’s another tidbit of information about the truck, and that is the horsepower, torque, weight, and weight distribution.
According to Forza 6, the new 2017 Raptor makes 450 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque. The truck weighs 5,700 lbs and has a front-to-rear weight distribution of 57-43%.
We speculated that the new truck might be in the 450 horsepower range, and the game seems to confirm it.
Keep in mind, this is just a video game, and the performance data could be based on numbers that are old. It’s possible that the new truck could make more (or less) than this number. It all depends on how much Ford wanted Turn 10 Studios, the makers of Forza 6, to know.
What do you think? Do these numbers sound solid? Let us know in the forums!
