Did Motor Trend just leak the HP/TQ of the Bronco Raptor?

If I am reading this correctly? 430HP and 420TQ. I snipped this from a link I clicked on over at Bronco Nation about fuel economy of the Bronco Raptor.
They haven't posted the official numbers for the Bronco Raptor yet or have I been under a rock somewhere? Everyones thoughts please.

I can't explain why those numbers are there but it doesn't make sense. The F-150 Raptor is 450 hp and 510 lb ft torque.

Whatever our Braptor numbers are I'd expect the torque number to be significantly high than the HP number. If they had said BRaptor has 430 hp and 480 ln ft of torque I'd have believed it. No way Ford would neuter the torque in this vehicle.

Then they say "we do estimate the Bronco to be a tenth quicker to 60 mph than the Raptor 37" That would not be possible in vehicles of the same weight and same size tires and that much disparity in power. Either way, it will have ample power.

4.70:1 Axle ratio in Bronco Raptor and the drivetrain may be more efficient.
4.10:1 Axle ratio in F150 Raptors (35 and 37)

Agreed, those are nice baseline numbers and the estimated 0-60 time is good for a heavy vehicle running 37s!

This also gets me a little more excited about the Ranger Raptor. It could have some impressive performance with the same power plant, 33" tires, and a few hundred pounds lighter. Just won't look as cool as the Bronco Raptor :cool:

Someone on 6G is claiming that the HP/TQ numbers will be officially released today. They didn't claim their source for that info.

So this rig has 430HP, the Velociraptor has 411HP and a TON more Torque at 80k more

VelociRaptor 400 Bronco · Power: 411 bhp @ 4,400 rpm 503 lb-ft torque

I think the Raptor, with a small Tune/Modification.. it will be the Superior Beast on the BLOCK 4 seconds is possible. (0-60)

What google search showed me yesterday in Post #2 above, can not be found today, apparently google was just referencing the latest numbers which was MotorTrends estimate above. I think we are much better off with these official 418hp & 440lbs-ft of Torque since Torque is what we really need in this 5,733 lbs Raptor.
