Car and Driver magazine spied a 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor R in testing. They were able to follow it for a few seconds and catch a quick listen at that supercharged -8’s powerful engine note!

Sounds pretty beastly from what I can tell so far!

Turn up the volume and enjoy!!

Nice.

I predict when the new V8 powered Raptor is about to hit the market, many TRX owners will be looking to sell or trade in and that’s when FCA dealers will also start to discount TRX’s.

Just like the Bronco, FCA knows what’s coming.

Those Ram TRXs are still hot commodities too. A dealer in my area has one marked up nearly $9K with “extra options” for a list price of nearly $130,000!!

That's just insane, although I do like the color of that truck.

The new Raptor should blow it away from a looks perspective, IMHO.

What’s even more insane and I expected this but, have you guys seen what Ford dealers are selling and getting for the outgoing 2020 Raptor?

Sure sounds like a Predator, alright! I've heard that the Raptor R is going to be a limited-run truck, but then again that was back when everyone thought Ford would make a PowerBoost Raptor, so I could be wrong.

I also read a few places that the V8 Raptor R will be a limited run. It’s been a while since I’ve seen that, though.
