As Ford Authority was the first to report, the all-new, third-generation 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor will no longer be available in SuperCab configuration – only as a SuperCrew. Whether that means the current, second-gen Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCab will become some sort of collector’s item or not, well, only time will tell. But if this 2020 Ford F-150 Raptor SuperCab currently up for auction at Cars and Bids is any indication, perhaps it already is.
As of this writing, the F-150 Raptor SuperCab auction has three days left and has already attracted a high bid of $40,000 – not bad considering its original MSRP was $59,310. It has 11,600 miles on the clock and is finished in the popular Lead Foot Gray without the optional graphics package, along with a black interior.
What’s also particularly interesting about this Raptor is that it had its transmission replaced under warranty last December. According to the seller, this was done because he noticed hard downshifts going from fifth to third gear, as well as the truck jumping out of reverse. He took it to the dealership and it made the call to go ahead and just replace the gearbox instead of fixing the original.
Another potential pitfall is that this was originally a dealer demo vehicle that had roughly 4,600 miles on it when it was purchased. The front camera was replaced under warranty as well, so it has certainly had a couple of issues despite its short lifespan. But as we already well know, Raptors hold their value extremely well, and this one is also the last of the SuperCabs, so buyers may not care about such things.
It’ll be interesting to see just how close this F-150 Raptor SuperCab comes to its original MSRP, and it’s possible that the seller loses little, if nothing on the sale. But then again, lots of folks prefer the shorter SuperCab and its lower weight, better performance, and improved off-road capability over the SuperCrew, so perhaps it will only be the start of what might be an appreciating asset moving forward.
