2021 Ford F-150 Raptor Order Banks Open Now, Other Models Go Live Soon

Back in April, Ford Authority reported that the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor and 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor were part of Ford’s Job #2 production. Now, Ford Authority has learned from a source familiar with Ford’s production plans that 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor order banks will open starting today. Other Job #2 2021 F-150 models will follow the opening of 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor order banks in just a couple of days – on July 16th – including the Tremor, as well as trucks equipped with the new Onboard Scales and Continuously Controlled Damping (CCD).

The all-new, third-generation 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor comes equipped with a host of new features, including a five-link rear suspension with extra-long trailing arms, a Panhard rod, 24-inch coil springs, and Fox Live Valve internal bypass shocks with electronic control technology and position-sensitive damping.

The 2021 F-150 Raptor is available with either 35-inch or, for the first time, 37-inch, specially-designed BFGoodrich all-terrain T/A K02 tires. The new F-150 Raptor is available exclusively in SuperCrew configuration, as Ford Authority reported some time ago, and is equipped with Ford’s third-generation 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which produces 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque – the same as the outgoing, 2020 F-150 Raptor. The turbocharged gas engine is exclusively mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.

The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor will be built at the Ford Dearborn Truck Plant in Dearborn, Michigan. It will be followed by the Ford F-150 Raptor R in 2022, which will be powered by Ford’s 5.2L Predator V8. However, Ford Authority was the first to report that V8 power would be returning to the F-150 Raptor way back in 2019.

It’s currently unclear how the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage will affect the production of the 2021 F-150 Raptor, Tremor, and other models. In recent months, Ford F-150 production has been severely impacted by the shortage as the automaker has been forced to idle most of its plants numerous times.

We’ll have more on the 2021 F-150 Raptor soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford F-150 Raptor news and ongoing Ford news coverage.

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.

    Bring it on! Way cooler than any useless, unsafe, battery operated, polluting EV.

    What is the real date of the order bank opening for the 2021 Raptor? My local dealer tried yesterday and it was not open yet and in this article it says today which was June 14 and July 16 so which one is it?
