A few weeks ago, Ford teased a special edition version of the Raptor that combined elements of both models, though details beyond the visual changes were scarce.

Power is still sent through a 10-speed automatic. The extra power comes courtesy of a bump in boost, a Whipple intercooler, and a full Borla exhaust kit.
