Ford's F-150 is one of the best-known Pick-ups in the world and has been the best-selling vehicle in the USA since 1981. And while no F-150 should be underestimated, the Raptor moves things into a league of their own, kicking it up with many notches and becoming the highest performance version of the Ford F-150. The F-150 is currently in its fourteenth generation, while the Raptor variant is in its third generation. Our featured subject car has been lovingly upgraded to Raptor specification and uses OEM body, suspension, and chassis components. This V8 Raptor upgrade, not including the donor truck, cost $53,000, while the truck is located in Colorado with 16,500 miles on the clock.
What we have is a 2019 Ford F-150 Platinum Pax Power Supercharged V8 "Raptor," and while it's a mouthful to say, the spec list more than proves itself as a serious pick-up package. This Platinum Series Raptor is painted in Agate Black and comes with the equipment group 701A and the technology package. The factory options include a 360° camera system, adapt-cruise, stop-go, pre-collision, tailgate step, 3.55 electronic lock RR axle, 7000 GVWR package, front license plate bracket, a twin-panel moon roof, pro trailer backup assist, FX4 off-road package, skid plates, tray-style floor liner, and a 36-gallon extended range fuel tank to prolong trips between fill-ups. This imposing vehicle is riding on a set of Icon Rebound 17" titanium finish wheels, wrapped in Toyo Tires Open Country R/T 37 x 12.50R17 124Q BSW & black lug nuts, all of which have been mounted and balanced. This truck features a 6" added suspension lift and 4" extra track width. The Pax-Power upgrade modifications to the body include Raptor-spec OEM body panels, suspension, & chassis components. OEM Raptor fenders, hood, bedsides, grille, fender flares, trim are all color-matched, an effort that is reportedly highly labor-intensive. Inside, you get a multi-function Raptor steering wheel with the Ford logo. OEM quick connect fittings have been installed for easy access, as has Raptor stealth fighter front & rear bumpers. Also included in this build are Rigid RDS radiance plus lights, 10" Rigid bumper sidelights, Rigid D series Cube lights on the rear bumper, and a Rigid 54-inch roof mount Midnight Edition light bar — all of which can be used to light up the road like it's the 4th of July. A Smitty Built HRC 12,000lb winch has been added with a frame reinforcement kit for the winch.
The engine of this Raptor specimen has been converted to the Pax-Power, which includes a complete V8 Raptor conversion with the V8 Raptor Supercharger upgrade: this includes a front entry 2.9L Whipple twin-screw supercharger boosting its power to an eye-watering 758Hp. A 132mm billet throttle upgrade has been added to match the ever-increasing demand for power. A massive air-to-water aluminum bar plate intercooler with a 2-gallon tank to keep the engine cool & at optimal performance has been installed, too, while it also features a self-contained oversized oil system is in place. An oversized heat exchanger w/ electronic pump is installed as well. All modifications have been reportedly professionally installed, computer calibrated, dyno'd, and road tested. All necessary fluids have been replaced too. Suspension is taken care of courtesy of FOX SVT internal bypass shocks w/ Raptor upper and lower control arms, springs, CV axles, tie rods, brake lines, leaf spring pack, mounts, bump stops & hardware. A Borla S-type Dual exhaust system w/ black chrome tips finishes off the rear, while also included are custom Raptor up fitter switches for easy access.
