A Facebook user spotted a 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor out in the wild this evening. It was apparently being used by a Ford “launch engineer” and he was nice enough to let people snag a few photos of it. This truck appears to be a Raptor SuperCrew finished in Agate Black.

Spotted in Gaylord, Michigan.

Something that stands out, those headlights. Thought it would have the projector LEDs, those look similar to the reflectors but maybe a higher performance version? Almost looks like those cube/pod lights that you can buy and mount to your hood.

Those are the reflector leds, that 302a,500a and 501a have. I’d say this in an 800a raptor with optional wheels. It also does not have the front sensors.

Possibly a lower trim package Raptor, or pieced together because of being a preproduction unit. The advertised Raptor in all the promos have the LED projector lights.

Is it just me, or does this truck not have the amber LED accent strips? Don't all the 2021 Raptors have that? Or is it just that this is a preproduction truck or I'm maybe seeing things?

There's a rust joke in here some where.....
I showed a GM troll in another forum old YouTube videos from years ago up to this date of GM and Toyota trucks have rust issues. The thing is, F-150 is the benchmark of the full size truck market and rust is only an issue when Ford has it. Even though other manufacturers have had it for years.

My guess is this is the "ENTRY" level Raptor. They mentioned how there will be different trim levels. These headlights are the same as the XLT and such.

The projectors we saw on the demo are the higher trim level lights.

Again, I think this is a more "ENTRY LEVEL" Raptor

It does have them. THey're just not illuminated because the truck isn't on.

The 801A package has those upgraded headlights. So this would fit into being the base model.
