2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R Specs


The Raptor R is the most powerful, capable Ford Performance truck ever created. The high-performance pickup truck features a massively powerful engine, a state-of-the-art suspension system, a comfortable yet practical interior with all the latest tech, and a muscular design to complement its commanding road presence.

Power and Performance 

The Raptor R is powered by a 5.2-liter supercharged V8 engine capable of generating 700 horsepower and 640 lb-ft of torque. This off-road monster features a new pulley design that maximizes the engine’s output for better low- and mid-range torque delivery. So, it has the most torque-dense engine ever fitted to a pickup truck. The 10-speed automatic transmission feels more responsive than ever, and it delivers smoother shifts when driving both on- and off-road. The new Ford Raptor R includes a one-of-a-kind twin exhaust system with an active valve system and a pass-through muffler with four different modes: Normal, Quiet, Sport, and Baja. Other powertrain Upgrades include:

  • A redesigned oil filter and cooler
  • Deeper oil pan
  • Wider intake
  • New front axle
  • Unique larger-diameter aluminum driveshaft. 

Upgraded Suspension 

The Raptor R is fitted with an independent double-wishbone suspension system, coil-over shocks, and cast aluminum lower control arms. This design allows each wheel to move and respond independently. At the rear, the five-link coil suspension with a Panhard rod and extra-long trailing arms provides excellent stability when driving through unpredictable terrain at high speeds. Ford has outfitted the Raptor R with high-output, gas-pressurized, 3.1-inch Fox Racing shocks that can adjust the suspension setting according to landscape using height sensors. These shocks are designed to effectively manage the intense thermal load of high-speed desert running. While the pickups class-exclusive 37-inch BFGoodrich all-terrain KO2 tires pull together the capabilities of this off-road beast. 

Exterior Features

Ford has given the Raptor R an aggressive, imposing design to match its jaw-dropping performance. The front end resembles a predator from the desert with futuristic LED headlights and an iconic Ford grille. The fender flares are black to give the truck a beefy look that stands out. The Raptor R has a larger and more prominent power dome than other F-150 trims. It also has an exclusive “R” logo, finished in bright orange accents, on the tailgate, power dome, and grille to separate it from other models. The rear fenders feature a distinctive graphics package replicating the rough desert ground on which it was meant to tackle.

Interior Features

Inside, the F-150 Raptor features luxurious black leather seats with carbon fiber accents on the doors and instrument panels. The standard Recaro® seats in Alcantara suede are designed to keep you safe while off-roading. Other standard interior features include:

  • 12-inch digital instrument cluster
  • SecuriCode keyless entry keypad
  • Intelligent Access with push-button start
  • 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot
  • 12-inch touch screen with SYNC 4 technology
  • Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto
