If you're the kind of pickup truck driver who prefers a quiet and subdued ride, the 2023 Ford Raptor R is not for you. No. The new Ford Raptor R is a straight shot of adrenaline that makes you feel alive. Blast Kickstart My Heart, buckle up, and smash the gas with glee. The most thrilling Ford truck rides into 2023 with vengeance, destroying all who dare challenge it.
But that's only to touch on the on-road performance. Indeed, the "normal" F-150 Raptor stands for dune-blasting, trail-crushing, obstacle-conquering off-road performance, and with all the power you could imagine on tap in the 2023 Ford Raptor R, this new monster of a truck is ready to turn every adventure into a high-octane memory that will make you forget that other pickup trucks ever existed.
It’s on its way, and as it roars in, Veterans Ford Tampa is here to help you take the reins. We can now take your 2023 Ford Raptor R pre-order. Read on to learn just how awesome this truck will be, and submit your Raptor R reservation today.
While it feels like yesterday, The Ford F-150 Raptor changed the truck game on its 2010 debut. It strutted in as a new definition of pickup truck power and no-compromise thrills, and over the past 13 years, it's come to be an icon. The 2023 Ford Raptor R changes the game once more, but to understand how insanely awesome it is, let's look at the non-R 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor specs:
It comes with a 3.5-liter high-output twin-turbo V-6 engine chambered and ready for action, letting loose 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque at a moment's notice. A 10-speed automatic transmission fires through the gears in the blink of an eye, and immense cooling fans kick in to let you enjoy that firepower all day long.
That's a tough act to follow, but the 2023 Ford Raptor R rises to the occasion and keeps going from there.
Look at the legendary Shelby Mustang GT500 and imagine it as an off-road truck: That's what the Ford F-150 Raptor R is. Specifically, you get the same "Predator" 5.2-liter supercharged V-8 engine under the hood of the 2023 Ford Raptor R, screaming and roaring to create a symphony of 700 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque.
The Raptor R gives that engine a new supercharger pulley to let the torque slam through the wheels faster and reinforced air ducts to keep things cool under such immense power loads.
So hold on for dear life as the 10-speed automatic sends you up to speed — the Ford F-150 Raptor R blitzes a staggering Car and Driver1 tested 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds; with a number like that you may forget that this is a full-size truck and not a sports car.
4WD, naturally, comes standard, but if you want to slide around and burn rubber like a maniac, the transfer case can send all the power to the rear wheels. When grip matters more than burnouts, high- and low-range 4WD settings come to life with enhanced strength.
As for efficiency, the 2023 Ford Raptor R MPG ratings are an EPA-estimated 10/15 MPG (city/highway);2 if you'd rather have immensely-high MPGs, we suggest a new Ford F-150 for sale with the 430-horsepower Powerboost Full-Hybrid engine.
You'll want to leave the 2023 Ford Raptor R in four-wheel drive for most of your ownership experience. For those new to the Raptor nameplate, power is only half the game it plays; the other half is an absolutely monstrous package of off-road bits that let you scream through any wild landscape.
For starters, the Ford Raptor R comes with a limited-slip rear differential — which can also help with rear-wheel-mode shenanigans. But many off-road trucks offer that. What the 2023 Ford Raptor R has that others don't is a factory-installed set of 37-inch all-terrain tires that bite into loose terrain harder than you'll be gripping the steering wheel. Yes, you read that tire measurement correctly.
We're just getting warmed up. The 2023 Ford Raptor R comes with fan-favorite long-travel suspension to soak up the inevitable thrills. At their core, FOX™ Live Valve shocks provide the stability and smoothness needed to harness 700 horsepower off the beaten path. Plus, you can adjust their dampers via the steering wheel to dial in performance. And to perform over untamed land, a best-in-class 13.1-inches of ground clearance3 is at your command.
Like the non-R F-150 Raptor, the F-150 Raptor R has a full list of drive modes for any situation. From Sport to Off-Road, and Baja to Rock Crawl, plus Tow/Haul, too, the 2023 Ford Raptor R can conquer it all. There's AdvanceTrac stability control for on-road confidence in the Raptor R, but out there far from roads, we know that you'll probably leave it turned off.
Like when you reserve the 2023 Ford Bronco, a 2023 Ford Raptor R reservation puts you at the very head of your adventure convoy.
If you know the Ford F-150 Raptor, you'll know that it does more than just conquer the wild and throw down serious power. It lets you do all that with top-end features and luxury.
The 2023 Ford Raptor R is no exception, and builds on everything that makes being inside an F-150 Raptor so great.
For example, commanding the explosive force of a Ford Raptor R takes place in leather-trimmed RECARO bucket seats, keeping you in place as the wicked G-forces of off-road blasts get rowdy. Carbon fiber style lines the interior, and with shadow accents giving a stealthy and aggressive look, the Raptor R interior is a visual delight.
You can expect the highest-end interior features found in our Ford F-150 lease deals, too. A 12-inch touchscreen display, a 12-inch Digital Productivity Screen (digital gauge cluster), a B&O® Unleashed sound system, a WiFi hotspot, a 360-degree camera system, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, available heated rear seats, a wireless phone charging pad, and much more will make the Raptor R the best way to experience all-terrain adrenaline.
