Platinum or Limited trims are the most luxurious levels of Ford’s vehicles. But, these are not the most attractive in the truck segment. If trucker seeks an adventure, performance, unique look, then Raptor is a better choice. At this moment, this trim level is available only for legendary F-150. Australian Ranger has it as well, while the US appearance is not likely in foreseeable future. But, the arrival of 2020 Ford F-250 Raptor is more certain than ever.
This model would copy the styling from the F-150. But, the Super Duty 2020 Ford F-250 Raptor needs a different engine. That is the major question – what will lay under the bonnet? Will it be a Powerstroke diesel or Ford is going to build F-250 Raptor with petrol motor?
2020 Ford F-250 Raptor Styling
The first thing that will make the Raptor different than the standard model is the front fascia. All parts will be different. The 2020 Ford F-250 Raptor grille is carrying FORD badge instead of a blue oval. We can see the same solution for F-150 performance-oriented version. All other parts will be aggressive as well. This working mule is about to be converted into a show-off pickup. Some concepts are showing much bigger wheels and special design of arches.
Besides that, the interior is going to take many changes. It is not going to be as exclusive as the Platinum version. However, the 2020 Ford F-250 Raptor will bring more Raptor features we can find in its smaller sibling from a half-ton class. The steering wheel and dashboard design, as well as Raptor badges, are making a statement.
Ford F-250 Megaraptor
The Ford F-250 Megaraptor was a concept brought by fans that saw no excitement with regular Raptor in F-150 body. By raising everything to another level, they created the machine worth of mention. And now, the company is considering to borrow the name for the upcoming vehicle. The 2020 Ford F-250 Megaraptor would be meaner and tougher than any other vehicle. Wide fenders and huge wheels are highlights of exterior appearance. Lift kit makes the F-250 Megaraptor higher. A couple of years ago it was 4 inches. For the 2020 official edition, any lift is great.
2020 Ford F-250 Raptor Diesel Specs
It is more likely that we will see the 2020 Ford F-250 Raptor with a diesel engine rather than petrol. Raptors are always looking to deliver more power. So, the turbocharged diesel engine would be a way better choice. With a proper tuning of drivetrain system, the special edition of the Super Duty truck is going to create at least 500 horses and over 950 lb-ft of torque. While the power is still behind announced Ram Rebel and Chevy Silverado ZR2, the twist output has no serious competition.
2020 Ford F-250 Raptor Price
All these upgrades will make 2020 Ford F-250 Raptor out of reach for most buyers. The ‘regular’ Raptor in F-150 truck costs $50k. For the Super Duty pickup, the price will jump for at least $10,000. The company could go even further and deliver 2020 Ford F-350 Raptor version as well, even with dual rear wheel setup. But, this is a far-fetched story for now.
