- the 2021 ford f-150 raptor is $10,690 more expensive than before, starting at $65,840.
- it's powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter v-6, but a v-8–powered raptor r will arrive next year.
- the new raptor arrives at dealerships this summer.
the ford f-150 raptor is now in its third generation and it continues to use a twin-turbocharged v-6 engine, even though ram has presented a challenger in the form of the 702-hp hellcat-powered 1500 trx. but the ram costs $71,990, and the 2021 f-150 raptor will be available this summer starting at $65,840. ford's true answer to the trx will be the raptor r, which won't arrive until next year.
the new f-150 raptor is powered by the same twin-turbo 3.5-liter ecoboost v-6 as before, though ford still hasn't released its power output. the previous model made 450 horsepower, and we're told we'll know more this summer. the upcoming raptor r is expected to use a version of the mustang shelby gt500's predator supercharged 5.2-liter v-8 making over 700 horsepower.
the new trucks now have a coil-spring suspension setup in the rear in addition to upgraded fox live valve dampers, and there's an available 37-inch tire package. ford has yet to release option prices for the raptor, but it's a safe bet that a fully loaded version will push into a considerably higher price range.
the 2021 ford f-150 raptor is $10,690 more expensive than the previous generation in part because it's now only available in four-door supercrew form. the previous model year's starting price was for the two-door supercab model. comparing apples to apples, the new supercrew is $7705 more expensive.
