2023 Ford F-150 Raptor for Sale in Wilbraham, MA

2023 F-150 Raptor Front

Overview

The original Ford F-150 Raptor shook the truck world when it debuted more than a decade ago. Each successive generation has delivered more power and capability. In keeping with this tradition, Ford is launching a performance pickup like no other, the 2023 F-150 Raptor R.

Based on the current Raptor, the Raptor R takes its engine from the legendary Mustang Shelby GT500 to provide a driving experience never before offered in a pickup. Full details about this supertruck will be available closer to the start of production (late 2022). In the meantime, here’s a preview of the Raptor R’s significant features.

Raptor R Powertrain

Underneath the hood will be a supercharged 5.2-liter V8 producing 700 horsepower and 640 lb.-ft. of torque. This potent powerplant initially saw duty in the GT500 but has been retuned to maximize off-road performance and the specific requirements of a truck, such as improved low-end torque. Other engine adjustments include a reworked intake for improved airflow and a deeper oil pan for better protection while driving on steep grades.

A ten-speed automatic transmission connects the engine to the standard four-wheel drive system. The Raptor R also has a unique dual exhaust with a controllable active valve system. The driver can select Normal, Sport, Quiet, or Baja, depending on the surroundings and individual preferences. Plus, a single mode can be stored and accessed via a steering wheel-mounted “R” button.

Suspension and Off-Road Capability

Keeping the power of the Raptor R’s supercharged engine in mind, Ford engineers redesigned the truck’s suspension to support expansive off-pavement adventures. These efforts are accomplished through a more robust front axle, 24-inch coil springs, and other ruggedized components. Also helping with capability and ride quality are Fox live valve dampers with height sensors for real-time adaptive suspension tuning. 13-inch front and 14.1-inch rear wheel travel are also built into the Raptor R for confident journeys over rocks and sand. Standard 37-inch tires and a 13.1-inch ground clearance reinforce the truck’s abilities.

Exterior Styling

Among the distinctive exterior elements of the Raptor R is a one-inch taller power dome on the hood. This differentiates the R from the regular Raptor and helps pull warm air away from the engine compartment to maximize performance. But this powerful pickup is still a Raptor, so iconic elements like the broad F O R D grille and black fender flares will be carried forward. At the same time, Code Orange “R” badges on the hood, grille, and tailgate will announce that isn’t an ordinary F-150 Raptor. The R will also get an exclusive graphics package across the rear fenders to signify the truck’s off-road capabilities.

Interior Features

Inside the Raptor R there will be Recaro seats covered in black leather and Alcantara suede; the upholstery has been designed to capture elements of the bold exterior while providing extra grip during spirited driving. Also unique to the Raptor R cabin will be tri-axial weave carbon-fiber accents along the doors, media bin door, and upper elements of the instrument panel.

Infotainment Technology

The Raptor R is going to have a standard 12-inch touchscreen as the centerpiece of Ford’s SYNC 4 infotainment system. Its features will be smartphone connectivity (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), Bluetooth, and Over-the-Air (OTA) updates for quick and convenient upgrades.
