This window sticker confirms the upcoming 2023 Ford Raptor “R” with a 5.2-liter Supercharged V8, FOX Live-valve shocks, 37-inch all-terrain tires and much more. To be clear, this IS NOT an official statement by Ford. Some or all of this information is still subject to change. One thing to note – this window sticker does NOT call this truck a “Raptor R”. It’s simply a 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor.

It appears that Ford has finally found a way to pack all of the most-requested features into one truck. It’s an F-150 Raptor crew cab with a supercharged V8 engine. It rides on the latest Fox Live Valve shocks, 5-link rear coil-sprung suspension, and 37-inch all-terrain tires. It has a 10-speed automatic transmission, selectable drive modes, and a 4.10 rear axle ratio. The GVWR is listed at a hefty 7,450 lbs.
We still don’t have an indication of the power output for this truck-specific supercharged 5.2L V8 engine. We also don’t know how much it costs. The current Ford F-150 Raptor with a 37-inch tire package starts at over $80,000. The 2022 Ram TRX starts at around $78,000. We imagine that the 2023 Raptor R truck could have a much higher starting price, but it will likely continue to be very popular with the fans of premium high-performance trucks.
Will the next 2023 Ram TRX up its game even further? Will the TRX offer a 37-inch tire package from the factory (similar to the SEMA show truck they showed in Las Vegas last year)? Will Ram increase its power beyond the 702 horsepower it already has? We will have to wait and see.
Here is one of my recent side-by-side comparisons of the Raptor 37 versus the Ram TRX.
