The next big thing in off-road performance is practically upon us, with Ford having just launching an online Build & Price tool for the all-new, 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.
The new F-150 Raptor will start at $49,520, including an $1,195 destination charge. Of course, that’s for a truck with the smaller SuperCab cockpit; stepping up to the SuperCrew is a maneuver that will cost you $2,985. Only a 51/2-foot box is available. Fully loaded, you’re looking at a more-than-$70,000 bruiser swathed in vinyl and loaded with superfluous electronics.
The most expensive option on the new F-150 Raptor, the 802A Equipment Group, is an overstuffed piñata of goodies ranging from SYNC 3 with SYNC Connect and 911 Assist, to LED box lighting and power-folding wing mirrors with LED spotlights. It also includes power-adjustable pedals, 10-way power front seats with heating and cooling, power-adjustable steering column, leather-trimmed seats, and Ford’s Pro Trailer Backup Assist – you know, things you’ll need while you’re roughing it in your new off-road machine.
Where the other $14k is tied-up on our build sheet we aren’t entirely certain, but $1,975 in vinyl graphics, $1,745 in interior trim packages, and $1,165 forged aluminum wheels with bead-locks are among the higher-priced contributors.
The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor is slated to start delivery a bit later in the year. You can build your own dream truck on the Ford website by following this link.
That’s a great idea, especially when the 8 dealers you’ve already went to have said they used up their allocation and won’t be getting any more Raptors.
