Report: Ford F-150 Raptor Pickup selling like hotcakes

The fastest moving half-ton pick up is also selling the fastest, as Ford dealers are having a tough time keeping the Raptor in stock.

Last year, Ford rolled 7,085 Raptors off dealer’s lots, and sales have been growing since. Through October this year, 8,105 Raptors have been sold, leaving dealers with little inventory, as the pickup only spends about 16 days, on average, in showrooms.
