With Ram introducing the very capable and powerful TRX, we’re sure Ford has been hard at work on improving the new F-150 Raptor. While we’re still waiting to see the 2021 F-150 Raptor and get official information on what’s changed, we have an idea of how much the high-performance pickup truck will cost. According to a leaked pricing guide on the forum F150Gen14.com, the upcoming F-150 Raptor will start at $64,145 (prices don’t include destination).

If those prices hold up, that would mean a significant increase for the new F-150 Raptor. Last year, the 2020 F-150 Raptor started at $53,455. That means an increase of $10,690 for the 2021 model year. Of course, Ford will offer the 2021 F-150 Raptor with a variety of packages that can drive the price even higher. In total, optional packages on the F-150 Raptor amount to $13,055, which means a fully-loaded 2021 F-150 Raptor will cost above $77,000.

While Ford hasn’t provided a lot of information on the 2021 F-150 Raptor, we do know a little about what the pickup truck will come with. Power is expected to come from the same twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that’s found in the current model. While the engine will be the same, there’s a good chance that Ford will boost its performance. The current Raptor makes 450 horsepower. Beyond the engine, we know the new Raptor F-150 will come with upgraded Fox Live Valve dampers, a coil-spring suspension design, and an available 37-inch tire package.

One major reason for the roughly $10,000 increase for the 2021 model year could be because of the pickup truck’s body style. The 2021 F-150 Raptor will only be available as a four-door SuperCrew model. Last year, Ford offered the Raptor in the smaller, more affordable SuperCab model.

There’s only one real competitor to the F-150 Raptor and it’s the Ram 1500 TRX. That pickup costs $70,195 and comes with a 707-horsepower supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine. Ford’s answer to the TRX is the upcoming Raptor R, which is expected to come with the same supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine from the Mustang Shelby GT500 for over 700 hp.

The same sheet that the forum found provided some information on the 2021 F-150 Tremor, which Ford also offers on the F-250, F-350, and Ranger. That pickup will cost $49,505 and brings three different levels of off-roading capability. The F-150 Tremor comes with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that makes 400 hp and is only offered as a SuperCrew model with a 5.5-foot bed. The pickup offers up to 10,900 pounds of towing capacity and 1,885 pounds of payload capacity.

Ford will offer the F-150 Tremor in three levels, all of which come with upgraded suspension that helps them sit an inch higher at the front and an inch and a half taller in the back. A four-wheel-drive transfer case from the F-150 Raptor, a locking differential, 33-inch all-terrain tires, and 18-inch wheels are also included. The Tremor also comes with a more aggressive exterior design and a variety of available off-road driver-assist features. The 2021 F-150 Tremor will go on sale later this year.
