While the Ram 1500 TRX is dead, with the Stellantis-owned brand working on its successor, the Ford F-150 Raptor lives on, and for the 2024 model year, it has become more potent than its discontinued arch-rival that adds the R suffix.
Due to the improved airflow, the 5.2-liter supercharged V8 is now good for 720 horsepower. That's 730 metric horses or 537 kilowatts for those living overseas, with the thrust being rated at 640 pound-feet (868 Nm).

Besides the extra oomph, the 2024 Ford F-150 Raptor R also comes with updated shocks, 24-inch coil springs, 37-inch all-terrain tires, a bespoke dome on the hood, and a fresh bumper up front. And it's not cheap, as it starts at $111,550, whereas the regular one will set you back just shy of the $80,000 mark, excluding destination and dealer fees.

But what if you desperately want a Ford F-150 Raptor and don't want to spend that much money on a brand-new example? The used car market would be your sole choice, and if it sounds better, then you should check out this copy that we found for sale. Born in 2018, it has seen some action over the last 5+ years, as its odometer indicates 65,165 miles (104,873 km).

If you decide to buy it, you won't be its second owner, but its third one. The truck has a Shadow Black exterior, red double racing stripes, Raptor decals on the rear quarter panels in the same hue, and red Ford lettering at the front and rear. The wheels were wrapped in chunky rubber for enhanced traction when the terrain gets rough, and they're said to be new.

Inside, it is all black save for a few details, like the twelve o'clock marker on the steering wheel. It has leather upholstery for the front and rear seats and other elements. Elsewhere, it is the same layout with no aftermarket wizardry, which is good news for most people interested in signing their name on the dotted line, as we reckon not many would put up with a vast amount of modifications.

Under the hood, it packs the 3.5L V6, paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission. This Ford F-150 Raptor is said to have a clean Carfax history, and that's another reason to buy it if you are in the market for such a ride on a similar budget. But what's the asking price, you ask? That would be $44,900, which is a little more than the MSRP of a brand-new base Ford Bronco that starts at just under $40,000 before destination and dealer fees.
