Want a 2017 Raptor? Here’s How Much It’ll Cost!
Secrets aren’t kept for too long thanks to the wonder of the internet. Whether or not Ford was trying to keep the pricing information on the 2017 Raptor a secret past this past weekend, we don’t know. What we do know is that a pricing guide for the 2017 model line was discovered, and it includes the price of the turbocharged, Baja-mode Raptor. That price? $48,325.
Our pals at Jalopnik break down the order guide, but basically the new Raptor is a bit more expensive than the old Raptor, which doesn’t come as too much of a surprise. The SuperCrew version, with the big four doors, starts at $51,310. Both of those prices do not include the $1,195 shipping and handling charge.
In addition to the standard options, which we aren’t sure what those are yet, there’s a mid-level and luxury-level upgrade. Of course, Ford cryptically calls them 801A and 802A. We also don’t know what either of those packages include, but we’re assuming that 802A is everything. $3,158 gets you the mid-level package and a whopping $9,345 gets you 802A’s luxury upgrades.
Assuming the 802A package is a lot like the F-150’s Limited package — and includes everything — a fully-loaded Raptor will set you back $61,850 for the SuperCrew. While that might seem like a lot of money, and it is, it’s right in the ballpark of the previously-mentioned F-150 Limited. So it’s really not out-of-line for what most people are paying for pickup trucks these days.
Good luck and finding a dealership selling the Raptor for sticker, especially at the launch. As we’ve seen with some other recent Ford Performance products, dealerships are using these hot new product to pad their pocketbooks. I’ve been to dealerships where $5,000 or more is added to a Focus RS. I’ve seen $25,000 added to a Shelby GT350. Heck, I’ve even seen a GT350 R priced at $199,999! That’s absolutely insane!
In the past Ford hasn’t typically honored X-Plan or other discounts on the Raptor, but a buyer shouldn’t have to pay above MSRP to get the truck that they really, really want. If you’re looking to get a Raptor, it might behoove you to wait until the Spring — at the earliest — to start looking at trucks. The initial rush is where the profiteering dealerships will make their most money. If you can afford to wait, it’d be a good idea to do so.
Even with the release of pricing, we still aren’t sure about a few things about the 2017 Ford Raptor. Mainly those things include the horsepower and torque of the modified 3.5L V6 EcoBoost. We know the engine can make big power — look at the Ford GT for an example — but we just don’t know how much Ford has turned up the wick on the latest truck.
Ford is currently consumed with the launch of the new Super Duty this week, but with the pricing now available and the order banks opening up, we should know more about the new Raptor pretty soon.
