The all-new 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R was revealed just last month following years of anticipation, speculation, rumors, and leaks. The big news, of course, is that this muscular pickup is powered by the supercharged Ford 5.2L V8 Predator powerplant, which produces 700 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque. But there are some key visual differences that set the Ford F-150 Raptor R apart from its V6-powered brethren, as we can see in these real-world photos of an Oxford White pickup recently captured by Ford Authority spies.
Up front, those features include a Code Orange “R” badge on the front grille, which is located beneath the giant “Ford” script, while that color also adorns the front tow hooks. Up top, the Raptor R is equipped with a power dome hood that’s roughly one inch higher for better heat extraction and also features a Code Orange “R” badge.
Moving down the side, the Ford F-150 Raptor R is equipped with unique 17-inch forged aluminum bead-lock capable wheels, which are wrapped with 37×12.5R17 BSW all-terrain tires as standard equipment. Unique graphics cover the bedsides and part of the rear doors, which also feature a Code Orange “R” to signify that this isn’t just any old V6-powered pickup.
The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R is available in eight exterior colors, including Oxford White – as seen here – along with the previously-announced Avalanche Gray and Azure Gray. Inside the cabin, the R also gets some unique touches, including Code Orange accents, standard Recaro seats trimmed in black leather and Alcantara, and carbon fiber trim with a unique tri-axial weave.
The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R is scheduled to enter production at the Dearborn Truck plant this fall, while pricing for the V8-powered, high-performance off-road pickup starts out at $109,145.
