The new Raptor will be more expensive than current models when it arrives this summer.
1. The 2021 Ford Raptor will start $10,690 more than outgoing models, at $65,840.
2. It's still powered by a twin-turbo V6, but a Raptor R variant with a V8 is coming next year.
3. The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor will go on sale this summer.
Ford has unveiled pricing for the redesigned Raptor pickup truck, revealing its massive price hike. Now starting at $65,840, the 2021 Raptor is $10,690 more expensive than outgoing models. Even with this increase, it's still considerably less costly than the Ram TRX, which begins at $71,990, but has a 702 horsepower V8. A V8-powered Raptor R is slated for next year, and the regular F-150 Raptor will go on sale this summer.
The 2021 Raptor retains the 2020 model's powertrain, a twin-turbocharged 3.5 L V6 with power figures that have yet to be released. In previous years, it produced 450 horses, which should be nothing compared to the Raptor R's V8. The latter is expected to be a version of the Mustang Shelby GT500's 700+ horsepower 5.2 L Predator supercharged engine, but this hasn't been confirmed by the automaker.
The truck gets other updates for 2021 as well, including new Fox Live Valve dampers, a coil-spring rear suspension setup, and a 37-inch tire package. Ford has yet to detail options or their prices, but more information is expected closer to its on sale date this summer.
The redesigned 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor starts at $65,840, $10,690 more than 2020 models, but isn't available in SuperCab configuration. A 2020 Raptor SuperCab, for an apples to apples comparison, is slightly under $8000 less expensive.
