Ford is putting the finishing touches on the new F-150 Raptor, but that hasn’t stopped PaxPower from announcing their 2021 Alpha F-150.
Designed to be an extreme off-road ready pickup, the Alpha F-150 has an aggressive exterior with extended fender flares and 17-inch wheels wrapped in 35-inch tires. The truck also sports a ram air hood, a sports exhaust system and an exterior graphics package.
The changes continue under the skin as a majority of the stock suspension components will be replaced by those from the previous F-150 Raptor. The company says this includes the axles, control arms and Fox Racing shocks with internal-bypass technology. The model also comes equipped with the Raptor’s leaf springs, steering links and brake lines – among other things.
The Alpha F-150 package costs $18,950 and the transformation takes approximately three weeks. However, customers can order an assortment of upgrades including heavy duty steel bumpers which provide additional protection as well as an improved approach angle. The bumpers aren’t cheap at $6,950 but they come with LED light bars which are said to “last the life of the truck.”
On the performance front, there’s a $12,450 supercharger package for trucks equipped with the 5.0-liter V8 engine. It enables the mill to produce 770 hp (574 kW / 781 PS) and 675 lb-ft (915 Nm) of torque.
Since most F-150 buyers don’t opt for the V8, PaxPower also offers performance packages for other engines. In particular, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 can be equipped with a cold air intake, a larger intercooler and a revised engine calibration. Thanks to these changes, the engine develops 500 hp (373 kW / 507 PS) and 625 lb-ft (847 Nm) of torque.
Similar upgrades can be applied to the 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6 turbodiesel. There it increases the output to 400 hp (298 kW / 406 PS) and 610 lb-ft (827 Nm) of torque.
