What if you wanted a Ford F-150 Raptor with the Hybrid drivetrain? Or, one with a supercharged V8? You’re in luck, PaxPower makes ’em!

Compromise is tough if you’re an off-road freak. The current Ford F-150 Raptor has very few compromises, but there are those who want more. Despite the amazing performance, there are folks who want more power, more capability, and more attitude. This is where PaxPower comes in.

PaxPower specializes in power, suspension, and structural upgrades for Ford and GM trucks. Among their builds, they are offering all of the off-road capability of a Ford F-150 Raptor, with the powertrain of your choice. PaxPower has a variety of supercharged V8s, the Ford PowerBoost hybrid powertrain, and diesel available.

While we don’t know the output of the upcoming Ford F-150 Raptor R, we know that these powerplants will please folks who are power-hungry. Keep in mind: these powerplants are available now. Some powertrains, like the PowerBoost, are left pretty much alone but are modified to work in the Raptor platform.

PaxPower uses many OEM parts on the suspension and drivetrain. Many components are upgraded to handle the extra load. From there, it’s up to the customer.

I listed a few tidbits on their powertrains below:

  • 5.0 V8
    • 770-horsepower Supercharger System
    • Whipple 3.0L Supercharger
    • Includes intake, heat exchanger, and computer calibration
    • Cat-Back Dual Exhaust System with Black Tips

In this video, Andre compares three Ford F-150 Raptor conversions to a factory-spec third-generation Ford F-150 Raptor. The trucks include a Ford F-150 Raptor conversion with a gas/electric (PowerBoost) powertrain, and two different versions of a Supercharged V8 F-150 4×4 truck.
