Way back in June of 2019, Ford Authority was the first to report that the Ford F-150 Raptor would once again be available with a V8 engine. When the all-new, third-generation F-150 Raptor was revealed last year, FoMoCo confirmed that the more potent Ford F-150 Raptor R was coming this year, while an internal document later confirmed our report from nearly three years ago. Meanwhile, Ford Authority spies spotted an F-150 Raptor R prototype testing for the first time over a year ago, capturing its throaty exhaust note shortly thereafter. Ford was later caught benchmarking the Ram TRX against the higher-performance pickup, and multiple leaks this past week have shown us a build sheet and even a photo of the truck’s supercharged Ford 5.2L V8 Predator engine. Now, The Raptor Connection has yet another revealing leak for us showing a 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R window sticker.
This 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R window sticker once again confirms the presence of Ford’s supercharged 5.2L V8, along with a few other juicy details. However, many of the details present here are identical to the regular F-150 Raptor, including all of the items listed under the Interior, Functional, Safety/Security, and Warranty categories. However, one interesting detail is the fact that the Raptor R will get its own unique wheels, which are 17-inch forged aluminum units. Like the regular Raptor, the R also gets 4.10 rear gears.
The window sticker lists this pickup as having Equipment Group 802A, which likely means that Ford is keeping the R within the current Raptor equipment lineup, as the 2022 F-150 Raptor can currently be ordered with the Standard 800A Equipment Group or the High 801A Equipment Group.

Aside from these new details, the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R will look slightly different than the already aggressively-styled F-150 Raptor, as Ford Authority reported back in April 2021. However, the Raptor R isn’t expected to arrive until later this year, while order books for the muscular pickup are slated to open up this fall, as Ford Authority exclusively reported in February.
