The Ultimate List of Ford Raptor Depreciation Rates

The Ultimate List of Ford Raptor Depreciation Rates

The Ford Raptor is the high-performance version of the F-150, designed specifically to be a street-legal version of an off-road racing vehicle. In 2019, the Ranger Raptor was introduced in foreign markets, and likely will be making its way to the US soon, though some models can be found in certain markets. Ford is attempting to keep the Ranger Raptor from competing against the F-150 model here in the US. Although we’re not professional car reviewers, we like yourself, are serious truck enthusiasts and given our focus on supplying quality front and rear backup Raptor backup cameras we’d like to think we know a thing or two about the model. 

 


Unlike the F-150 that the Raptor is based on, the Raptor depreciates at a significantly lower rate. The base F-150 depreciates at an average rate of 44%, with the Raptor holding more of its value for longer. In terms of base price, first-generation Raptors (2010-2014) sold new for $41,995 to $47,895. Second generation sold new for $49,520 (2017) to $52,855 (2019).

One of the benefits of purchasing a truck is that they depreciate at a much lower rate than other vehicles. Many cars will lose 50% of their value in the first five years, while many trucks will hold variable value within that time. In the remainder of this post, we’ll take you through the rates of depreciation for the Raptor.

2010 Ford Raptor - First Release

With its refined ride, quiet interior, and huge amount of configuration options for both the cab and the bed, the 2010 Raptor has experienced a very low depreciation rate. In addition, the model year has top crash-test scores. It doesn’t perform quite as well as other trucks in its class in the same model year, but it was a quality year for trucks in 2010.

2011 Ford Raptor

The only knock against the 2011 Raptor was that the extended cab has less convenient clamshell rear doors. This model year is praised for its quiet ride, efficient and powerful engine lineup, a functional cabin, innovative interior features, a tailgate step, and the overall refinement of the design.

2012 Ford Raptor

One of the more fuel-efficient of the Raptor line, this model has aged particularly well, and though it shares the clamshell door issue of the 2011, it’s a consistently solid investment.

2013 Ford Raptor

This model can be described as the pickup truck for sports cars lovers. A fuel-efficient model, with not much to say negatively or positively about. Features that were updated from the previous model include beadlock capable tires for more offroading capability, increased interior luxury with MyFord Touch System, and HID headlights.

2014 Ford Raptor

The turbocharged V6 on the 2014 Raptor made this model year stacked with performance features a compelling line for consumers. It has the largest selections of variations of any truck of this model year in this class, and sports numerous convenience features. However, it was showing its age in 2014, and can look a little thin next to newer models.

2017 Ford Raptor - Second Generation Release

The second generation of the Raptor got bigger and better. With an all-new torque-on-demand system, a new method of combining all-wheel and four-wheel drive, racing shocks that feature a new “Live Valve” capability, an EcoBoost V6 engine, this truck is not to be underestimated. You can further compare and contrast the generations here.

2018 Ford Raptor

With a 450-hp twin-turbo V6, the 2018 Raptor is one of the most powerful trucks on the market, and it’s still fetching very high used resale values, which is a good indicator of quality and value. It can also jump to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds.

2019 Ford Raptor

The newest version of the Raptor is powerful, so powerful in fact, that it might end up being a bit too much in terms of features and capabilities for most consumers.

Down the Road

With a first take, the price of a Ford Raptor might seem a little exorbitant. But, while many people don’t see themselves dropping $30,000+ on a used truck, the Raptor is one of the trucks that holds value better than any other.
