No impact at allWhat sort of impact will the R have on the price of regular Raptors? Couldn't help but noticed that the MSRP for the R is about the same price as Raptors are going for with ADM. Obviously, the R will have ADM, but when you're spending that kind of money, and have the ability to spend that kind of money, do you really care if it costs $110k or $140k?
The other point to consider is that a lot of people are in a Raptor because it was perceived as the best. Putting aside the argument of TRX vs Raptor, 35s vs 37s for a moment, a reg Raptor is definitely not the best anymore. So if you're in it for the title, your in for the R and R only here on out. And if you can't afford the best, do you go back to a regular F150 now, rather than a 2nd/3rd place option?
What I mean to say is, if you want to look good in the Starbucks drive through, Raptor might not be your vehicle of choice anymore. And while Ford may still sell all the Raptors they make, they might not get the stupid money for it anymore, or as much as they used to. Wouldn't be too surprised to see Raptors for MSRP are pretty common come January '23.
Yeah, prices will stay high until Ford makes enough. I worry that at the intersection of woke and greedy, there's a limited number of Raptors produced for the foreseeable future. I'm hoping that at the end of gen 3, Ford will crank out the numbers the way they did at the end of gen 2. That's when I upgrade. We'll see.I'll say it again, not judging anyone. But as long as people continue to pay ridiculously high prices for Raptors. The Supply will stay limited and the prices will stay (ridiculously high) As much as I love my 20 Gen 2, I wouldn't have considered paying today's prices nor remotly the ADM's. I got a steal.
