Ford F-150 Raptor Spy Shots Reveal Interesting New Lighting Details

Sponsored Links

Several different next-gen Ford F-150 Raptor prototypes have been spied testing in various states of disguise in recent weeks. Now, we have a new set of F-150 Raptor spy shots that reveals even more details about Ford’s next rugged Raptor, mainly some new lighting features that are quite different than the ones present on the current-gen model.

In these F-150 Raptor spy shots, we can clearly see a new light integrated into the lower, rear-most section of the wheel arch. It appears to be designed to be visible from the side and also from the rear, and seems to replace the small circular auxiliary light that resides below the taillights on the outgoing F-150 Raptor. From the front, we can also see a cut-out on the front fender/arch that suggests a similar light is possibly mounted in the front wheel arch as well.

These new photos add to what we already know about the next-gen Raptor, including the fact that it will ride on a brand new coil spring suspension with its Fox shocks moved ahead of the rear axle, which Ford Authority first reported back in August. The truck’s wheel arch design is different as well, but it will retain its signature “Ford” script front grille, however.

It’s also possible that the next Raptor will drop the SuperCab configuration and be offered only as a SuperCrew pickup. As far as when we’ll see the next-gen F-150 Raptor, it’s expected to launch for the 2021 model year, though we have our doubts.

The third-gen Raptor will be available with two different engines – either a more powerful version of Ford’s new 3.5L PowerBoost V6 hybrid or a revamped version of Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 High Output used in the last-gen F-150 Limited and Raptor models, and the supercharged 5.2L Predator V8 from the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, detuned a bit to somewhere between 725 and 750 horsepower.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
