The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R was revealed in July, bringing a supercharged eight-cylinder powerhouse to the F-Series line. With the Ford 5.2L V8 Predator under the hood, the muscular pickup is good for a whopping 700 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque, making it a force to be reckoned with in the full-size pickup segment. Recently, Ford Authority spotted one of these overkill pickups wearing a coat of Antimatter Blue. Antimatter Blue is just one of eight exterior colors offered on the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R. Recently, Ford Authority spied another example of the muscular pickup in Oxford White, while other color options include Avalanche Gray and Azure Gray.
The deep blue exterior paint compliments the Code Orange accents, which help to set the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R apart from its “regular” Raptor counterparts. Note the orange “R” badge on the grille, and the color that is carried down into the pickup’s front tow hooks. Code Orange is also found on the pickup’s power dome hood, again adorning the “R” badge and trim.
Also of note are the special Raptor decals adorning the pickup’s bedsides, which are also accented with Code Orange. It rolls on 17-inch forged aluminum bead-lock capable wheels, which are wrapped in beefy BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tires.
The 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R is scheduled to enter production at the Dearborn Truck plant this fall. Pricing for the muscular pickup starts at a cool $109,145. It is certainly proving to be a highly coveted vehicle, as one was already stolen from a Ford storage lot in Dearborn in July, part of an ongoing rash of thefts of Blue Oval products, particularly Ford F-150 Raptors.
