Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Buys A Ford F-150 Raptor R

Former pro wrestler and current movie star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has long been a fan of The Blue Oval, and has owned quite a few Ford-branded rides over the years. In fact, in late 2021, Johnson gifted his own personal Ford F-150 Raptor to a veteran, but that wasn’t the first time he did such a deed – rather, he’s also given away a Ford Mustang GT to an Iraq War vet and Purple Heart recipient, and gifted his stunt double a custom F-150, too. Now, after previously expressing his desire to purchase a Ford Bronco Raptor and Ford F-150 Lightning, Johnson has added yet another new Blue Oval ride to his stable – the Ford F-150 Raptor R.

Johnson recently purchased his Ford F-150 Raptor R from Galpin Ford in Los Angeles, California, and posted this video – which was subsequently posted by FoMoCo CEO Jim Farley. “You never know who you’ll run into on the road… @TheRock picked up his new truck from @galpinford and had a special message for the @Ford + @UAW team back in Dearborn. Thanks, DJ!” Farley wrote in his tweet.

“This message is a very special message,” Johnson said. “I’m sending this one out to my family, or as we say in the islands, my Ohana – and that is the Ford family. Starting with all the blue collar heroes in Dearborn, Michigan. Many of you, I’ve had the pleasure of shaking your hand, grease and all. I just want to say thank you, thank you for all the hard work you put in to creating vehicles like this for me and people around the world.”

Johnson also pointed out that he only drives Ford trucks, and noted that he’ll be driving this one the same way he does all his Blue Oval pickups – “with great pride” and the music blasting, of course.
