Ask TFL: Is There a 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R Production Halt? Here Is the Answer…

Some pickup trucks are still very hard to get...

2023 ford f-150 raptor r production halt delay

We recently received the following question about the new 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R customer deliveries or lack thereof. This question comes from T.S.

Any news from Ford on the Raptor R production halt? Seems like every Raptor R produced from Dec 2022 – Feb 2023 has been sitting in Dearborn awaiting shipping with no ETA. There is some information that says they stopped producing them. My Raptor R order began production in February 2023 and it is still sitting in Dearborn. Ford customer service knows nothing. There are no holds or chip shortages as far as we know. All my friend’s orders that have a scheduled production date keep getting punted to later in the year.

What is going on? If you are still waiting for your pickup truck order for what seems like an unreasonable amount of time – please comment in the section below. You can send your questions to us at or speak with us at

Ford representative has this to say:

As part of our quality process, all trucks are inspected to ensure they meet the quality standards our customers expect. We are building Raptor Rs in May as part of our normal production schedule. We are doing all we can to meet the demand for the truck and get them to customers as soon as we can.
