Discover the 2024 Ford F-150 Raptor R

The 2024 Ford F-150 Raptor R has made a grand entrance, setting new standards in the world of off-road pickups. The wait is over for enthusiasts craving the return of V8 power in Ford’s muscular lineup. This isn’t just any V8; it’s a supercharged 5.2L V8 Predator, a powerhouse borrowed from the S550-generation Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. In the 2023 Raptor R, it “got by” with 700 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque. But Ford wasn’t content to rest on its laurels.

For 2024, the Raptor R roars with 720 horsepower, edging out even the formidable Ram TRX. This boost isn’t mere numbers; it’s the result of fine-tuned engineering, involving reduced air inlet losses and optimized calibration. This not only ups the horsepower but broadens the torque curve, making the Raptor R a more formidable beast on any terrain.

But power isn’t the only upgrade. The 2024 model features a slew of enhancements that blend functionality with aesthetics. The new modular front bumper, customizable with accessories, and the optional light bar add practical touches. The removed bumper end caps for models with 37-inch tires, standard forged tow hooks, a wide blackout grille, and new headlamps bring a fresh, rugged look. Plus, with the new Shelter Green paint option and updated graphics, the Raptor R stands out even when stationary.

Beneath the surface, Ford’s commitment to off-road excellence shines. The 2024 Raptor lineup includes new Fox dual live-valve shocks with position-sensitive compression control and continuously variable rebound controls. Developed by Ford Performance, these shocks adapt to off-road conditions, enhancing the Raptor’s capability to handle the roughest landscapes. While some configurations retain the previous live valve shocks, the overall upgrade in the suspension system is a game-changer for off-road enthusiasts. 

The 2024 Ford F-150 Raptor R isn’t just a step forward; it’s a leap into the future of off-road pickups, combining raw power with sophisticated engineering and design. This vehicle isn’t just about getting from point A to point B; it’s about conquering the journey, no matter how challenging the road ahead.
