During our extended driving tour in the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor during our 2017 Monster Factory Off-Road Challenge, we had plenty of time to listen to the throaty and subtle fluctuations of the exhaust system at speed, in low range and at idle.
The new Raptor, like many other V-6-equipped F-150s, includes tone-technology that allows passengers to hear a slightly different engine sound than the one coming out the tailpipe, meaning it's given a more muscular and V-8-sounding tone. But Ford engineers also spent gobs of time and energy trying to provide the engine with the most rear-wheel power and the best sound they could find.
Here is the latest video from Ford showing how engineers tested and created the unique twin-pipe exhaust system for this latest-generation Raptor.
