Anybody seen or heard any news on how much horse power this thing is bringing to the table? We know at least 400, but how much more are they pumping up this horsosaurus?

I haven't heard anything yet. What is your guess? I say it will be 435 to 440 hp.

I'm going to guess about 415hp and 440tq.

On the Raptor truck using the Ecoboost HO they pumped it up 50HP (400hp up to 450hp) over the standard offering. They only went up 10 lb-ft of TQ over the standard offering though. I am sure they could easily hit those numbers with this 3.0L motor, but they don't want to make all the F150 folks upset. My wife has an Aviator with the 3.0L and it is a beast. It also has the sport mode feature and it will haul some butt for a 3 row SUV. My guess is they do 420HP and 450 lb-ft. However they do it I am sure I will be happy with it. My dealer just texted me and said he is placing my order today for sure. Let the high level anticipation begin.

It's going to be whatever the EPA will certify at. Watch for a Ford performance tune to become available if it's only 400hp.

Considering the 2022 Explorer ST is a Ford Performance vehicle with 400 hp & 415 ft-lbs TQ the same as the Aviator.

My guess is 410 hp 425 ft-lbs TQ

I'm sure we will be satisfied even at the Explorer ST numbers. Just be nice to say it's a little more...

I have a 2020 Explorer ST (which also achieves the 400/415 numbers with its 3.0L) and agree with a previous poster regarding its awesome giddy-up. Somehow I feel they'll be able to boost those numbers (no pun intended) to at least 420/440 (if nothing else to compensate for the additional weight of the Raptor). The latter number is the current Rubicon torque...

I was just reading an article about a modded Explorer ST pushing over 650+ horsepower.

The list of mods reads more like a parts catalog for an A80 Toyota Supra. Upgraded turbos, high-flow intake, upgraded wastegates, downpipes, intercooler, injectors, and more all contribute to this 3.0-liter V6 pumping out 657 hp to all four wheels.

That black Explorer ST slammed on those billet wheels looks good!

Ford said that the Bronco Raptor has a different intercooler and turbos than the Explorer ST. I would assume they went with larger/more efficient parts to help make more hp and tq.

Anyone know how much power the 10R60 can handle? I read a while back it wasn't much.

I really wished they would have put the 10R80 in the Bronco Raptor because I'm not sure how much more over stock we will be able to push the 10R60.

Engine torque can be mitigated for the drivetrain thru the engine PCM. Most factory street performance cars have torque management/mitigation. That's how anyone can drive a hellcat to get groceries. I'm guessing Baja Mode on Raptors reduces the amount of torque management because the tires are not fully hooking up with the driving surface (less resistance to breaking traction), therefore the engine response is much quicker. Also I suspect that may be partially why the Bronco Raptor turbos are only continously spooled up in Baja Mode which increases low end torque.

My wife drives an Explorer ST as well. It will fly in sport mode. Since the Raptor is a Ford Performance at 400+, I am wondering if there will be a Hennessy Tuning that will bring it up closer to 475-500. They did one for the 2.7 badlands and it went from 300ish to 400hp. Will have to see.

I bet there will be! I will definitely be tuning mine and I can't wait to see how much power they can pump it up to!
