True performance metrics - towing, zero-to-60 mph time and speed - are in favor of the Ford F-150 Raptor R in this debate. A smaller, lightweight engine in the Raptor R employs a quick-spool supercharger to deliver more torque at lower RPM - which results in more explosive acceleration. Add a lighter platform to the equation and the Ford F-150 Raptor R is expected to sprint from zero to 60 mph in under 4.0 seconds compared to the 4.5-second time of the Ram 1500 TRX. Ford F-150 Raptor R entries are expected to tow up to 8,600 pounds of cargo that will outperform the Ram 1500 TRX on the jobsite.
