Outside look of all new 2019 Ford F-150 Raptor will almost look the same as 2018 model, but some changes are visible. The hood is one of the biggest changes. Massive hood scoop will emphasize new v8 engine. This change is allowing the engine to “breathe” better and also adds more fashionable look. Like on the models before, forthcoming F-150 Raptor is going to use the military-grade aluminum body.

The tailgate is available with the one pull-out step so the customers can access bed much easier. Pop-out steps are added to the sides also.
