    The ’18 Ford F-150 Raptor has been spied in Dearborn, Michigan, and this time completely undisguised.

    The new Raptor has been on sale for about a year, but Ford will make some changes to the vehicle for 2018. The truck will follow suit with the rest of the F-150 lineup by receiving a refreshed tailgate, but that’s where it appears to stop; no changes to the front, taillights, etc.

    Expect the F-150 to soldier on into 2018 with the 3.5 Ecoboost and 10-speed automatic transmission.

    Debut of the ’18 Raptor is expected by this fall.

    I don't like the stamped tailgate on the 2018.

    Gah! It still has a V6.. Wish it had a Triple turbo V8 putting out 1187hp...that's the only way I would be interested.


    /troll.


    I hate the tailgate too. I love the grills on them though.

    I like seeing the 10 speed in it. Between that and a super cheap eaton around the corner we might be looking at a throw back to the good old days. Boss, gt500, 5.0 , Roush , Saleen, pick your poison by the plenty!

    +1 for hating the tailgate. I'm glad I got my '17 now.

    The tailgate is stamped unless it has the appliqué.

    Also the 802A and 801A come standard with the appliqué now. There is a delete option though.
