New F-150 Raptor Spy Shots Show The Bed Completely Uncovered

Multiple next-gen Ford F-150 Raptor prototypes have been spied testing in a variety of disguises in recent weeks, all with varying levels of camouflage. While every prototype spotted to date has had its bed covered in camo, however, now we have pictures of a new F-150 Raptor prototype with a completely uncovered bed that gives us our best look yet at the rear portion of next-gen pickup.

With no camo on the sides of the bed, we can get a very good look at the wheel arches of the new Raptor. The widebody swell seems to be similar to that of the last-gen model, but the wheel arches seem different, with some notches toward the rear that weren’t present before, which makes for a unique new styling touch. Additionally, the taillights on the new Raptor have adopted the updated design of the 2021 Ford F-150 that it’s based upon.

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. It will retain its signature “Ford” script front grille, however.

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.

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.
