Ford F-150 Raptor R Dyno Run for 2023 Displays Significant Drivetrain Losses
The results of the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R's most recent dyno run are in, and they are frightening.
With a drivetrain efficiency of only 315hp as opposed to its original 510hp engine rating,
it is exhibiting significant drivetrain efficiency losses. For performance fanatics, this indicates a decline of over 38% from the advertised numbers,
which is very alarming. If these losses may be ascribed to wear on parts like clutches, transmissions, or engines, more testing needs to be done.
If not, it might be an indication of bad engineering choices or, worse, it might be a hint of potential failure in future components.
Right now, the only thing that is certain is that consumers should exercise caution before making any significant investments in this vehicle.
