The day is finally here! You can order up an all-new 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, or at least get on a waiting list for one. Ford opened up the order books Friday both online and at dealers.
Judging by the 90,000 plus people checking out the Ford Raptor online configurator, there’s a lot of interest for the next-generation performance off-roader. Ford says the most popular options include the SuperCrew, Luxury Group and Technology Package. Black is the most popular color choice so far.
The 2017 Raptor starts from $49,520 including destination charges. You can order and place a deposit on one now. (Ford doesn’t say how much the deposit is so check with dealers.) The first deliveries are more than a month away.
The largest markets so far include Texas, California and Florida. So far, one dealer in Vegas has nearly 300 customers on a waiting list for one. Ford isn’t saying how many it plans to build, but 65 percent of early orders are identified as retail orders for a specific customer.
On the configurator website, 91 percent of people building one are going for the SuperCrew.
Meanwhile, the Luxury Group, which includes features like 360-degree Camera and Blind Spot Information System, has a 90% take rate and the Technology Package, which includes features like Lane-Keeping System and Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Mitigation, has a 77 percent take rate.
So the bottom line here is if you want one, we’d try to get your order in now.
