    Segment Transcript


     I’m Laura Reynolds with CarPro.com.   The Ford F-150 Raptor R features a new 5.2-liter supercharged V8. Ford F-150 Raptor R Marketing Manager Brian Bell talks about the new colors and ordering. Bell: "We do have two new colors. We're bringing out a color called Avalanche which we launched a few years ago and customers loved so we're bringing it back. And then we've got a new gray called Azure Gray that's a Tri-Coat, so that Tri-Coat when it gets painted with that extra clearcoat on it just gives it such a deep lustrous look in the gray it looks fantastic on the truck. Particularly because the R comes with all black accents surround at the bumpers and the wheel arches and things in black so the combination is just fantastic. It will be a limited volume vehicle right just a general Raptor is, but it's not a set number vehicle right,  we're going to try to build the demand we just you know we don't think it'll be huge, it's a very speciality kind of vehicle for customers. You know if a customer wants one they should start go start talking to their dealer now about getting one ordered.” For more information on these and other vehicles, check out CarPro.com. With Today’s Auto News, I’m Laura Reynolds.   

    Editor's note: You can now place an order for a Raptor R at a CarPro Certified Ford Dealer.
