Rumors say that the new Ford F-150 Raptor will have a base price of $49,520, which would include destination and delivery. As for the four-door pickup, the price could start at $52,505, which is a $3,000 increase from the price of the old truck.
The information may be more than just a supposition, because it leaked through Ford’s website in the form of a document displaying all the prices for the available options and equipment for the vehicle. However, the list contains just names and numbers, so the company has still surprises for its clients.
For example, the truck will have two equipment group add-ons, with a mid-grade offered at the cost of $3,158 and the luxury option at $9,345. Even if the document does not say what exactly the groups will contain, there is a possibility they may be even more interesting than the old ones.
The technology package could be added separately with a $1,950 more. Carbon fiber, an interior color, and exterior graphics could also be added to the basket. The model will have the classic option for 17-inch aluminum wheels.
The new Raptor will also contain an upgraded version of the EcoBoost turbocharged V6 and a 10-speed transmission that had been designed with the help of General Motors.
The company website presents the truck as having multiple upgrades in suspension and drivetrain. The new Raptor will have an aluminum body, while the core will be made of steel. This mix makes the truck 500 less bulky than the old model.
The Ford F-150 Raptor was also designed to display a high performance off-road, with a good running clearance. The power distribution between the wheels had been balanced wit the use of a four-wheel-drive and torque-on-demand transfer case.
Another new technology employed in the model is the FOX Racing Shox, which is supposed to allow flexible damping rates, enhancing the off-road experience. The Terrain Management System will optimize driving on mud, sand, street or Baja.
Even the tires had been specially designed for the F-150 Raptor, and they are called BFGoodrich® All-Terrain T/A® KO2, with 17-inch in size. Remains to be seen what Michelin North America has prepared for Ford’s next clients.
Ford has yet to inform its future customers the specifications that make up for the difference in price existing between the previous model and the new one. However, the F-150 Raptor is already available to preorder through Ford dealers.
