This week’s biggest news from Ford is the addition of the long-awaited F-150 Raptor R pickup truck. It has a Shelby GT500-sourced supercharged V8 with 700-hp (522 kW) and now we’re getting more details about it and the rest of the F-150 lineup. A pair of new documents including the order guide and the 2023 price list has popped up online and we have all the details.
We knew yesterday morning that the Raptor R would start at $109,145 or about $37,000 more than the normal (can we even call it that?) Raptor with its 450-hp (335 kW) 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6. Now, thanks to posters on the F150gen14 forum, we know exactly which features come with that Raptor R package as well as other 2023MY F-150s.
That includes a unique grille, a unique hood vent, black exterior accents, Code Orange tow hooks, Code Orange stitching on the doors, 17-inch forged aluminum bead-lock capable wheels, 37-inch all-terrain tires, and carbon fiber interior appliques. These guides tell us a lot more than just details about the Raptor R though.
In addition, we’ve found that the F-150 Tremor now comes standard with the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 under the hood. With a starting MSRP of $60,110, it might become known as the “poor man’s Raptor” in many ways. It’s already a very well known blend of performance and off-road capability so the V8 will only make life more enjoyable for those who enjoy a little more grunt.
The very bottom of the pricing list is held by the F-150 XL with its $34,085 MSRP. Other notable changes include the deletion of the SuperCab from the Lariat trim and the addition of colors like Area 51 Blue, Avalanche, Azure Gray metallic Tri-Coat, and Hot Pepper Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat.
No significant changes occur across the lineup with regard to interior color, safety, security, Ford’s Co-Pilot360 technology, or mechanically aside from the addition of the new Raptor R engine.
Let us know in the comments below if these changes to the lineup are good or bad in your opinion. Do you like the Tremor with the Coyote V8 and is the Raptor R too expensive?
