Those mammoth tires? Three feet high and rising.

Groundbreaking vehicles don’t pop up in the car and truck world very often, and when models that challenge conventional wisdom do show up, most end up flopping. But when <a website debuted its Baja-ready F-150 Raptor over a decade ago, a hero was born, both for driving enthusiasts and for Ford's accountants. That was way back in 2009, and on Wednesday, the third generation of this highly successful, high-speed off-roader hit the scene.

The new Ford F-150 Raptor is here, and version 3.0 is…

7:06

Not that you’d immediately notice. In contrast to its first two generations, this new 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor doesn’t look much different from the more radical departures that came before it. That shouldn’t be too surprising, as the same is true of the standard 2021 F-150 range that debuted last fall. As with those trucks, appearances are deceiving. There are a whole host of new capabilities and technologies baked into the third-generation Raptor that should make even more of an off-road juggernaut, not to mention an easier truck to live with everyday.

Chief capability upgrades include available 37-inch tires, redesigned Fox Live Valve shocks, over-the-air software updates and an optional version of the Pro Power Onboard generator that recently wowed us in the F-150 King Ranch. Additionally, some new Bronco-derived technologies like Trail 1-Pedal Drive should make for easier and more confidence-inspiring off-roading. This new Raptor appears poised to hit the market at exactly the right moment: For the first time in its decade-plus existence, the Raptor finally has a bona-fide rival, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX, and it’s a truly fearsome foe.
