2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R Redesign

In terms of design, we don’t expect any significant differences between the Raptor R and the regular Raptor. Some spy shots are available and the Raptor R appears to be very similar. The updated Raptor R features a 5-link rear suspension, along with trailing arm, and a Panhard rod. It can take bumps better than the regular model thanks to this. Fox shocks are also included with a 3.1-inch body and 24-inch coil springs. Blue Oval claims that the layout has 14.0 inches suspension travel at the front and 15.0 inches back. The R edition is slightly bulkier than the regular Raptor and features a larger fascia, hood, and tailgate.
