Now in its 10th model year, the 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor is In the unique position of being the performance variant of the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. From the outside, the Raptor hides its F-150 roots well courtesy of large fender flares and a wide-body nose. In not so subtle terms, the wide-stance full-size truck says “get out of my way.” There’s no excuse not to see the Raptor coming with its huge, billboard-worthy block letters shouting F-O-R-D inside its Jonah-sized grille. Functional hood louvers, fender flare air extractors, sweptback front bumper ends, a giant front skid plate, and huge 315/70R17 all-terrain tires complete the look. Ground clearance is a whopping 11.5 inches.
The F-150 Raptor is available in SuperCab (extended cab) or foot-longer SuperCrew (crew cab) body styles, both with the short, 5.5-foot cargo bed. Four-wheel drive is standard. Including the hefty $1,595 destination charge, the base Raptor SuperCab retails at $54,450; the base SuperCrew variant goes for $57,435. The Midlevel trim 801A package adds a modest $3,105 and the topline Luxury trim 802A pack found on our Ford Performance Blue test truck tacks on another $9,365.
