Is the world ready for a Ford Mustang Raptor with all-wheel drive?

All-wheel-drive sports cars with go-anywhere abilities have gained popularity in recent times. Porsche debuted the 911 Dakar, which was followed by the Lamborghini Huracan Sterrato.

Now, rumour has it that Ford could be evaluating a similar concept based on the Mustang. Reports suggest that a Ford Mustang Raptor could be on the cards.

It is said that the Mustang Raptor is likely to share its underpinnings with the upcoming S650 Mustang. It will be powered by a 5.0-liter V8 packing 500 hp, which would be sent to all four wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission and an electronically controlled central differential.

That’s not it. Media reports also indicate that a more powerful version called the Mustang Raptor R with a 700 hp 5.2-liter supercharged V8 may also become a reality.

If Ford goes ahead with its plan to build an all-wheel drive version of the Mustang, it could reach showrooms sometime in 2026.

There certainly seems to be a market for jacked-up sports cars, as Porsche and Lamborghini have shown. However, would you buy a Mustang that’s kitted out to go off-road? Let us know in the comments.
