2015 Raptor

With the auto shows coming and the 2015 F-150 getting close, do you think we will see the new Raptor right away ?
Do you think they will expand the line to maybe a SUV type Raptor vehicle ?

All thoughts or predictions welcome, it's fun to guess and look back later.

There will be no 2015 Raptor, and not a guarantee that it will be back in 2016, but most people think they will because Ford is making some good money on them.

With how popular the Raptor is and the fact they have to keep upping production to try and keep up,The huge profit ford is making, you can bet your bottom dollar they will have a new version , no question. I also think they may expand the line and add a SUV type vehicle. The next generation Raptor should be awesome with all that has been learned with this truck and the new lighter weight.

Ford has already indicated that the 6.2 will not find its way into the 2015 MY F150 trucks, leaving just the 5.0 as the only V8 option. My guess is Ford will perhaps step up production for the 2014 model year and then it's gone. They need the numbers for EPA fleet average fuel economy and the current Raptor is a little thirsty.

I hate to say it but I think the Raptor is dead, not because Ford wants it to be, but because Big Brother says Ford has to meet MPG standards so they need to have as many fuel efficient vehicles as possible. I'm starting to wish I had bought a Raptor last year instead of getting a SD.

I have heard that it is currently planed to be back in the 2016 or 17MY along with the GT500. idk what they will do about the Engine since the 6.2 will most likely be gone, I hope that they don't just go with the 3.5 eco Boost that would be a big disappointment in my mind for an SVT vehicle. I am hoping they just make an eco boost 5.0 That would be sick and could eventually replace the 6.2 in the Super Duty's.

Our 14 raptor just landed in Vegas at Shelby for the Shelby treatment. Every option except for graphics, as Shelby does their own. Whipple supercharger and 575 HP. It is black and I'm getting red graphics and red and black Shelby interior. Power running boards, tonneau cover, and off road bumpers front and rear. They won't start on the conversion until may as there is a waiting list. My buddy has a blue one that came in with mine on same truck. He's getting black graphics on his. Will make three raptors for him when he gets the 14. He has a 11 orange which he supercharge himself, and a red 12. Will be the first raptor for me. Will make the ninth Ford in out stable, not counting four the kids have.

The fact that Ford is being so tight lipped about it makes me think that the Raptor will be back with big changes.

They have to do something because chevy is coming out with the reaper. Ugly as ****.
