As a high-performance, off-road-focused vehicle, the Ford F-150 Raptor has long been excluded from incentives and other offers, and these days, it’s hard to find one at MSRP, too. Regardless, the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor will be significantly more expensive than the 2022 model due to one simple change – as Ford Authority reported last week, FoMoCo is dropping the 800A Standard Equipment Group for the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor, leaving the 801A High Equipment Group as the least expensive option. Sources familiar with the matter have now told Ford Authority that this change makes the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor around $5,000 more expensive than the 2022 model as a result.
|2023 Ford F-150 Raptor Price – July 25||2022 Ford F-150 Raptor Price – July 29||+ / – July 29 Price|
|801A Equipment Group||800A Equipment Group|
|Destination and Delivery||$1,795||$1,795|
To be more precise, the 2023 F-150 Raptor will start at $75,775, which is $5,220 more than the 2022 Raptor’s starting price of $70,555, while destination and delivery charges remain unchanged at $1,795. However, it is worth noting that this extra money also nets buyers more equipment, including a heated steering wheel, second-row heated seats, the Forward Sensing System, a power tilt and telescoping steering column with memory function, B&O Unleashed sound system with 18 speakers, universal garage door opener, and wireless charging pad inside, as well as rain-sensing wipers, a “Ford” tailgate appliqué, and LED projector headlamps with dynamic bending on the outside.
The 801A High Equipment Group also includes the Torsen Package – which adds a Torsen front different and Rigid LED fog lamps – as well as the Convenience Package, which consists of Ford’s Interior Work Surface, partitioned lockable fold-flat storage, the Tow Technology Package, and connected built-in navigation.
In addition to this price change, the XL, F-150 Raptor, and F-150 Tremor have all nixed their entry-level Equipment Groups as well, making each a bit more expensive. Otherwise, the 2023 Ford F-150 lineup is set to gain a few new models – including the Rattler, Heritage Edition, and Ford F-150 Raptor R – while the F-150 Tremor will now come standard with the Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine instead of the 3.5L V6 EcoBoost powerplant, while the F-150 Limited has ditched two-wheel drive and the 3.5L V6 EcoBoost in favor of standard four-wheel drive and the PowerBoost hybrid. The 2023 F-150 will also carry over some feature removals from 2022, though a couple could be returning as well.
