When the 2018 Raptor went on sale last year, the Super Cab model cost $49,785 plus $1,295 for destination. In December of last year, Ford raised the price by $430, which was a $330 increase in the Raptor MSRP and $100 more for destination for all F-150 models. As of last week, as CarsDirect discovered, Raptor order guides showed another price bump of $660, which was $560 added to the truck's MSRP, and another $100 tacked onto the destination charge for all F-150 vehicles. That makes the price of the least expensive Raptor now $52,170, which is $1,090 more than when it went on sale. The Super Crew Raptor went up by the same amount, now needing $55,155 to get out the door.
The 2019 Raptor will bring new colors, electronically adjustable Fox Racing shocks, Trail Control — a sort of low-speed cruise control for off-road, new beadlock-capable wheels, and optional Recaro seats. The Raptor hasn't seen an incentive since birth, so anyone looking for the best deal on a 2018 model will want to wait until the 2019's go on sale. And even then, good luck.
Ford worked the same juju on the F-150 Limited, boosting the price by $610 to $62,855 for the 4x2 and $66,280 for the 4x4, after the $1,495 destination.
