MILLINGTON, February 15, 2016 – The Miami International Boat Show is playing host to the world debut of the all-new 2017 Raptor 460 by Indmar Marine Engines. In November, Indmar announced the expansion of the Raptor Series portfolio to now include the Raptor 460 that boasts 453 lb.-ft. of torque. The addition of the Raptor 460 provides consumers with another step up in performance at a great price point alternative, making the Raptor Series the most versatile and rugged suite of engines on the market. In addition, the Raptor 460 fulfills customer demand and the void left by the larger displacement engines that are no longer produced.
The all-new Raptor 460 is built on the current Ford and Indmar platform to maximize performance and efficiency. The 460 has raised a few eyebrows with people thinking Indmar has resurrected the old Ford 460; however this is not the case. The Raptor 460 has less displacement; it’s lighter, more powerful and has better fuel economy than the Ford’s legacy 460. Meaning, this is not your Grandfathers 460!
The Raptor 460 is based off a proven workhorse, the Built Ford Tough® 6.2L 16-Valve SOHC V8 engine with dual-equal variable cam timing that was designed, engineered, built and torture-tested by Ford. The same state-of-the-art engine that powers the F-150 F-Series Super Duty Trucks that boast best-in-class gas horsepower, torque and max towing ratings.
The 460 features a high torque intake manifold and high horsepower throttle body borrowed from Ford’s coveted GT-350. Indmar’s engineering team topped it off with free flowing tuned 5” exhaust and a patent-pending inline spiral flow muffler. Low backpressure and an LED lighted cover are just a few of the features added to this edition of the Wake and Jet Raptor Series 460. The Jet Series has been designed with a single point drain and is available with the following jet options: Hamilton, American Turbine, Berkeley, Dominator, Legend, Kodiak and Scott Water Jets.
With five engine configurations, the dual performing and 4x Award Winning Best-in-Class Raptor Series has the durability and capability to accommodate all your boating activities on a wide variety of vessels. The Raptor series dual personality has the adaptability to meet the demands of the most unforgiving marine conditions. From conquering the most challenging and demanding white water rapids and the gnarliest Pro Tour Tournaments to the average watersports family – What ever your boating vice may be, there is a Raptor by Indmar that is the perfect fit for your size boat and activity.
The Raptor Series continues to stand apart from the competition. From the not so standard base engine with best-in-class torque, horsepower and fuel efficiency to the heavy weight champ they call the ROUSHcharged Raptor 575, consumers will find each engine in the series was built on a foundation engineered to last and backed with a full 5-year Factory Warranty—Indmar’s commitment to the quality, durability and reliability of the all-new Raptor Series.
