2021 Ford F-150 Raptor

The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor will enter production at the Ford Dearborn Truck plant on July 6th, 2021 and it is likely going to be highly sought after, so shoppers interested in the new Raptors clad in the equally-new Code Orange color are advised to check with their local dealer regarding pricing and availability of the third-generation model.

Ford Authority has extensively reported on the all-new, 14th generation 2021 Ford F-150, and the plethora of changes that arrived with the debut of the new model, which include the introduction of the first-ever hybrid F-150, powered by the Ford 3.5L PowerBoost V6. Additionally, the overhauled half ton truck features a myriad of tech and features enhancements and additions, like Sync 4, the Interior Work Surface, Max Recline Seats, Pro Power Onboard, and more. This summer, the F-150 will gain Onboard Scales, active suspension tech, an all-new Tremor off-road trim level, while also reintroducing the F-150 Raptor back into the lineup after a brief hiatus.

The new Raptor will carry over the powertrain from its predecessor, but does come with some notable improvements, like larger 3.1-inch-diameter anodized shock bodies and revised transmission mapping. Additionally, Ford will allow buyers to pair their new Raptor with 37-inch tires for the first time ever. As exclusively reported by Ford Authority,  a more robust and more powerful F-150 Raptor R will arrive for the 2022 model year, complete with a supercharged Ford 5.2L Predator V8.

Even more exciting changes await the F-150 for the 2022 model year, as the paradigm-busting F-150 Lightning is expected to arrive at U.S. dealerships next spring as the first-ever full-size electric pickup from a traditional American automaker. The upcoming model is already racking up an impressive number of reservations and has already been enthusiastically sampled by President Joe Biden.

      That comes next year 2022 along with the 2023 F150 Lightning and a pretty hefty dealership market up $20k/$25k judging by the price of 2021 Bronco
