New 2023 Raptor R: extreme off-road video

Raptor R: Scary Fastttt


OMINOUS COLORS: Raptor R wears all-black
front and rear bumpers, cladding and wheels
that emphasize its menacing appearance.

Even the interior is coated in black, right down
to the distinctive Recaro ® seats featuring
leather and Alcantara ® suede.

CALLING CARDS: For a not-so-subtle hint
at the truck’s attitude, you’ll spot a
distinctive Ford Performance Code
Orange-painted “R” in the grille, and on
the power dome and tailgate applique.

SEEING A PATTERN: Unique tri-axial weave
carbon fiber trims the doors, media bin cover
and upper dash appliques and emphasizes the
performance, toughness and durability of Raptor R.

SOUND AND FURY: An advanced drivercontrolled exhaust system allows Raptor R
to conceal its movement or bare its teeth,
reducing engine noise in Quiet mode or letting
the V8 engine roar with 700 horsepower*.

*Horsepower and torque ratings based on premium fuel per SAE J1349® standard. Your results may vary. Alcantara is a registered trademark of Alcantara S.p.A., Italy.
RECARO is a registered trademark of RECARO Beteiligungs-GmbH. Preproduction model shown. Available late 2022.

EXTREME STYLING: A taller, more
aggressively styled power dome on the
hood highlights the supercharged V8 engine
underneath. It sits nearly one inch taller
than on the base Raptor, helping extract
warm air from underneath.

TAGGED: Spotted on the truck’s box outers
and rear doors, these graphics feature a unique
design that resembles the harsh, cracked
desert earth Raptor R calls home.

DEARBORN, Mich., July 18, 2022 – After more than a decade spent braving harsh conditions
and conquering massive desert dunes over three generations of off-road trucks, Ford unleashes
the new F-150® Raptor R™ – the fastest, most powerful, most extreme high-performance off road desert Raptor yet.

All three generations of F-150 Raptor have been inspired by the extreme desert-racing trophy
trucks that compete in the Baja 1000. Designed and engineered by Ford Performance, the 2023
F-150 Raptor R is the closest yet to delivering this type of performance.

“Raptor R is our ultimate Raptor,” said Carl Widmann, Ford Performance chief engineer. “When
customers experience Raptor R in the desert and beyond, it will make the hairs on the back of
their necks stand up – and they’ll love every second of it.”

The heart of Raptor R is a new 5.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that delivers 700 horsepower
and 640 lb.-ft. of torque to give it incredible desert-running power. Ford Performance enlisted
the most powerful engine in its lineup – previously seen in the Mustang Shelby GT500® –
optimizing it for Raptor-level off-road performance and Built Ford Tough® durability. The result is
the most torque-dense supercharged V8 yet in a production pickup.

Ford Performance recalibrated this V8 engine’s supercharger and installed a new pulley to
optimize its power for off-road use, increasing torque delivery at the low-end and mid-range.
These changes help Raptor R offer more performance at the speeds where customers spend
most of their time driving.

To maintain the extreme off-road durability the Raptor brand is known for, Ford Performance
upgraded the original engine’s exhaust manifolds to a cast stainless steel design, including a unique oil cooler and filter, plus a deeper oil pan enabling it to tackle aggressive grades while keeping the engine oil cool. To help the engine breathe better, air intake volume is increased
66% via a wider air intake inlet and a higher-flow, higher-efficiency conical air filter.

Built Ford Tough to conquer the desert
F-150 Raptor is about more than going fast – it must conquer brutal off-road environments. Its
capability and durability comes from more than a decade of Ford expertise in engineering and
torture testing high-performance trucks. Ford Performance upgraded the base truck’s
transmission and driveline to help ensure Raptor R can smoothly handle what this V8 can throw at it.

Raptor R delivers a 10-speed SelectShift® transmission with improved calibration. The truck
features a new front axle with a more robust, higher-strength carrier casting and an aluminum ribbed structural cover to manage the powertrain’s added torque, as well as a unique larger diameter aluminum driveshaft.

A new, specially tuned torque converter with heavy-duty turbine damper and four-pinion rear output assembly makes the truck even better equipped to transfer
torque and provide a smoother powertrain feel when driving both on- and off-road.
Drivers get even more control over how their Raptor R expresses its additional power, courtesy
of a unique dual exhaust system with a true pass-through muffler and active valve system, with
modes for Normal, Sport, Quiet and Baja. These can be adjusted in the MyMode™ feature,
allowing drivers to customize multiple settings – including drive, steering, suspension modes
and others – and save one as a single mode easily accessed with the press of the “R” button on
the steering wheel.

If the heart of Raptor R is the supercharged V8, the soul remains its incredibly capable
suspension. The five-link rear suspension features extra-long trailing arms to better maintain
axle position on rough terrain, a Panhard rod and 24-inch coil springs – all optimized for
outstanding stability while traversing desert terrain at high speeds. Advanced FOX Live Valve
shocks are tuned to balance ride quality and roll control on- and off-road. These electronically
controlled dampers use suspension height sensors and other sensors to monitor terrain
conditions independently, hundreds of times a second, while adjusting suspension tuning
accordingly. Wheel travel of 13 inches in front and 14.1 inches in back facilitates Raptor R’s
ability to traverse sand and rocks with outstanding capability.

“We’ve heard our customers demanding the sound and power of a V8 back in Raptor,” said
Widmann. “That’s not something we were going to rush. This supercharged 5.2-liter V8 is the
ideal fusion of high-density power paired with the third generation Raptor’s all-new rear
suspension and shocks to deliver a one-two punch that goes far beyond the sum of its parts.”
Each drive mode is tuned to account for the added power of the supercharged V8, including an
optimized Baja mode for maximum performance and control in high-speed off-roading. A 5%
increase in the front spring rate helps maintain comfortable ride quality, while Raptor R boasts
class-leading* 13.1-inch ground clearance and standard class-exclusive* 37-inch tires straight
from the factory for improved obstacle clearing.

Iconic Raptor styling taken to the next level
The most powerful Raptor yet takes the off-road truck’s purpose-built design legacy up a notch,
with unique styling that further drives home its supercharged capability. A larger, more
aggressively styled power dome on the hood sits nearly 1 inch taller than on the base Raptor, helping extract warm air from underneath. Iconic F O R D grille, bumpers and fender flares painted black underscore its menacing looks.

“Raptor R is visually designed like a desert predator to catch the attention of Raptor customers
and off-road enthusiasts,” said Tom Liu, Raptor R lead designer. “There are details big and
small – from the more aggressive hood air extractor to the Code Orange ‘R’ badges – that
visually communicate next level off-road performance under the Raptor R banner.”
Ford Performance-exclusive Code Orange accents include a unique “R” badge on the grille,
power dome and tailgate. A special graphics package on the rear fenders feature a unique
design that mirrors the harsh, cracked desert earth, reinforcing the type of environment Raptor
R is built to conquer.

That aggressive feel carries over to a black interior. Standard Recaro® seats sport a
combination of black leather and Alcantara® suede – cleverly placed for added grip when the
terrain gets nasty. Genuine carbon fiber adorns the doors, media bin door and upper parts of
the instrument panel, featuring a unique tri-axial weave designed to convey Raptor R’s
combination of performance, toughness and durability.

Like the rest of the Raptor family, Raptor R comes standard with a suite of smart technology to
make off-roading easier. Trail Turn Assist** allows drivers to shrink their turning radius on tight
turns and go even further off-road. Ford Trail Control™ – think cruise control for off-roading – lets
drivers select a set speed and steer through challenging conditions while the truck handles
throttle and braking. Trail 1-Pedal Drive† allows customers to control throttle and braking with
just one pedal to make extreme off-roading like rock crawling even easier.

Keeping you connected is a standard 12-inch touch screen with SYNC® 4 technology, Apple
CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility††. Raptor R also benefits from Ford Power-Up overthe-air software update capability‡
. These wireless updates can offer improvements throughout
the vehicle – from the SYNC system to enhanced quality, capability and convenience upgrades
that improve the ownership experience over time.
F-150 Raptor R will be available in eight color options, including new Avalanche and Azure Gray
Tri-Coat exterior paint offered on the Raptor lineup for the first time.
Ordering for F-150 Raptor R opens today and production starts late 2022 at Dearborn Truck
Plant. Contact your dealer for more information.
