Both the new Ford GT and F-150 Raptor are coming for performance enthusiasts, but the Blue Oval’s been pretty quiet when it comes to one key detail regarding both vehicles: power.

Considering both models will be down two cylinders from conventional car logic (twin-turbocharged V-6 vs. V-8), enthusiasts have been wringing their hands waiting for the final figures.

According to Ford Raptor Forums, which had a purported private image posted to a Facebook group showing the output ratings, the new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will have 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.

That’s more power than the outgoing Raptor and its 6.2-liter V-8. To be exact: 39 more horsepower.

Of course, the horsepower figure isn’t completely shocking—it was supposedly leaked back in January—but the torque figure might raise some eyebrows.

While Ford hasn’t confirmed it, this same engine should make somewhere around 630 hp and 539 lb-ft of torque in the new GT supercar.

Thinking about ordering the new 2017 F-150 Raptor? It’s been priced from $ 49,520, but that’s for a SuperCab. If you want the larger SuperCrew it will cost you at least $ 52,505 which includes $ 1,195 for destination. Those prices are about $ 5,000 more than the outgoing Raptor, but this model has some big upgrades.

From the 10-speed automatic transmission to  tech including LED headlights, the new Raptor aims to raise the bar—again.
