    Hello all. Hypothetical here...Its no secret that Gen 1's have held there value better than Ford, or any Gen 1 owner, could have ever anticipated. Some argue its the fact that the Gen 2's are over produced, or due to the V6 twin turbo.

    I'm a new member but have been reading through posts on here for over a year now. My general take away is that everyone loves their rig whether its a Gen 1 or Gen 2. But, I have noticed that the guys who've had both usually mention how they wish they held onto their Gen 1. I am hoping to buy a Gen 1 myself, sooner than later. And yes, the V8 has a lot to do with it.

    With that said, what if the Gen 3 came with a V8 option? Would a Gen 3, V8 Raptor kill the Gen 1 resale market?

    Ocean County here. I almost pulled the trigger on one 2 weeks ago. 2013 Red Screw, fully loaded with 28.3k miles. It was beautiful. Out the door price was going to be $49,500. As nice as it was I just couldn't wrap my head around paying that for a 6 year old truck that brand new MSRP'ed at $56k.

    Here's the link for it:

    I still am dreaming about it though.

    IMO, Gen 1 are going to take a big hit when Gen 3 come out with or without a V8.
    If there is a V8, they might get a little bump after the hit as there is going to a premium for the V8 model. I have seen Gen 1 advertised in California for Less than 25K, one as low as 17K that claimed a clean record and looked good in the pictures with 133K miles.

    I suppose I'll get the answer in about a year. Real question is can I wait that long and how big of a hit?

    I have a number that I feel comfortable spending. If the right deal comes along I'll go for it now. Otherwise, it's the waiting game for me.

    Good question. My thought being a Gen 1 in excellent condition will always get a premium price. Based on the simple fact that a Gen X V8 will be near $100,000. Makes a $40,000 Gen 1 a bargain for basically the same performance. Depends on if you're a driver or driving to be seen.....

    I see that 2010 thru 2012 MY Raptors are starting to slip in price and I think thats a combination of age and that the 2013 and 2014s have some small changes that make them more desirable. With that said I still see the 2010-12 for sale in the low 30s and 13/14s selling for high 30s. Mileage and overall condition play a factor of course.

    At this rate I'm not worried about a potential hit as an owner and I also don't think the hit will be enough that if I wanted to buy one I would wait.

    Also the V8 is almost assuredly not coming to the GEN3. Ford is making a full court press that the V6 Ecoboost is their flagship engine. The only reason they haven't pulled the V8 from the Mustang is that enough people would actually purchase them would throw a hissy fit about. Its not like the Ford GT where Joe from accounting talks about how he wouldn't buy it unless it had a V8... uh hey dude the real reason you cannot buy is that you make 50k a year. Whereas he could probably actually buy a Mustang.

    I have a 2012. I sure as shit hope the new gen 3's come out with a V8 and the price of the first gens takes a huge dive so I can buy a second one!

    @jbib99 get a 13-14, more refined, preferably a 14 with low miles. Wouldn’t worry a ton about resale value if you plan to actually off-road your truck. It would be like not having sex with the woman you’re with so that she’ll be in better condition for the next guy.. in that case, thanks!

    There are plenty of nice Gen 1s that'd be put up for sale if Ford could deliver a new Raptor with a V8.
