Alpha F-150 by PaxPower: Why wait for the new Raptor R?


The new generation of the Ford F-150 has already settled, and far from waiting for the new version of the Raptor to arrive, already landed, or the expected and even wilder Raptor R , many preparers have already got down to work to create their own versions that not only seek to take Ford's most famous renewed pick-up one step further, but even overshadow its wildest version even before it is born.


This has been the case of Hennessey, which recently showed a monstrous F-150 with 800 hp and an imposing presence under the name Venom 800 Supercharged, and now also PaxPower, a company perhaps less known but which has also shown good form. considerably transforming other pick-ups such as the Chevrolet Silverado in both appearance and performance with the Jackal Silverado.


Now they are back with a new version called Alpha F-150 that makes the new Ford F-150 the closest thing to the future Raptor. A version that was already anticipated at the end of last year with a series of renders, but that now finally arrives fully materialized with these photos that show us an imposing pick-up with a lot of performance under its enormous body.


Raptor style in aesthetics and mechanics


And it is that Pax Power has created a new sports pick-up with all the letters, with a body with extended fenders, modified bumpers and accompanied by auxiliary LED lights, a hood with a generous air intake, or off-type wheels. 17-inch road in bronze color shod on 35-inch tires also for off-road driving.


At the rear, PaxPower has finished off this more adventurous look with a reinforced frame on the bed for a more sporty look that also adds an auxiliary wheel. The icing on the cake is a few types of vinyl for the body with a wild touch and a high-performance exhaust system.


But the Texan trainer has not only remained in aesthetics, because under his body we also find new components such as suspension arms and Fox Racing shocks that are wider and longer travel, as well as leaf springs, steering rods, other parts from the same F -150 Raptor, in addition to also installing new springs and custom stabilizer bars. All this results in a height 9 cm higher than the original and an extra 10 cm in width.


Up to 781 CV


With these improvements, the Alpha F-150 package costs $ 17,950, but there are still some extra improvements in your pocket, such as an upgrade with supercharging - for an extra price - for the 5.0-liter V8 engines that carry the power of the new F -150 to 781 hp, while its torque reaches 915 Nm, thanks to a 3.0-liter Whipple supercharger similar to that used by the Shelby and Hennessey models.


However, PaxPower will also offer improvements for other more common engines such as the EcoBoost V6 3.5 that with some tweaks such as improved cooling, a larger intercooler, and a new calibration can reach 507 hp and 847 Nm. These improvements will also be available for the Power Stroke V6 3.0 diesel engine, which will be capable of reaching 406 hp and 827 Nm. Options so that no new-generation F-150 is left without a punch that puts it at the height of the future Ford F-150 Raptor.
