Let’s have some fun! Join publisher Tim Esterdahl as he uses the Ford build and price tool to spec out a 2021 Ford Raptor with all of the features he feels are must-haves.
No. However, given the truck’s abilities, suspension and features we can see why someone who lives way out and regularly travels washed out roads might choose one as a daily driver. It really is comfortable off and pavement. Plus, it just looks cool. So, we’ll do a little window shopping.
The starting price for the 2021 Ford Raptor is $64,145. And while this looks like a heck of a lot, we should note it is less than Limited trim. The Raptor is only available with the super crew cab and 5.5-foot bed configuration and will come with Ford’s 3.5-liter twin-turbo high-output EcoBoost engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
All of this will give the Raptor a best-in-class 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.
Coming standard on the Raptor are clearance lights in the front, the big FORD grille, c-channel headlamps and a higher stance and wider width than the regular F-150.
And that’s just getting started.
According to the build and price calculator, the total for this custom beast of a truck would be around $85,270. With $8,500 down the monthly payments would be approximately $1,449. Yes, that’s a mortgage payment for some folks. But if you have the money to buy a Raptor (or Ram TRX) in the first place, you’re probably less worried about that and more concerned about getting the truck you really want. And if Esterdahl was buying a Raptor, this is what he would want.
Be sure to watch the video below to see what each of the packages above includes and why Esterdahl chose them. And let us know what you think of his choices!
