Ford was definitely on a good cause when it launched the original F-150 SVT Raptor almost a decade ago.
Per Cars Direct Ford's final order leader for the 2018 F-150 Series shows a starting price of $ 52,170 for the Raptor Super Cab and $ 55,155 for the Raptor Super Crew. Both figures include a target fee of $ 1,495
This makes the second-generation Raptor a whole lot more expensive than when it arrived in 2017, when it was billed from $ 49,520. It also makes the truck more expensive than when the sale of the 2018 model began, at which time it was priced at $ 51,080.
Our advice would be to stop if you considered a Raptor and wait for Ford to begin accepting the Model 2019 orders. That's because the Raptor 2019 will receive some substantial updates including new ones electronically controlled Fox shock absorbers that use suspension and body sensors to continuously adjust the damping to conditions in real-time. There are also new Recaro seats and more color options to choose from.
All Raptors continue a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 pumping 450 horsepower and 510 pound-foot torque. The engine is connected to a 10-speed automatic transmission and a sophisticated four-wheel drive system.
We asked Ford to comment on the Raptor's price increases and will update the post when we hear back.
Note that not only the Raptor has seen price increases in the middle of the current model year. Range-topping F-150 Limited now starts at $ 62,855 for the 4×2 and $ 66,280 for the 4×4. Both prices include the destination and are $ 610 more expensive at the start of model year 2018.
