    I am beyond excited that I waited for a 2018 instead of a 2017. I just ordered my Race Red 2018 Supercab fully loaded with hood and exterior graphics for MSRP. Now the worse part, waiting....

    did you get to do a tentative spec out of it, or do they have to 2018 options info in already? Any changes from the 2017s? i heard rumors of possible 18'' wheels instead of 17s, and no bead lockable upgrades available for 2018, also is the B&O stereo upgrade like in the regular f150 line up?

    i'm looking to place an order for a 2018 if this 2017 a local dealer has on order isn't what i like with the orange accent interior.

    So I did a full spec out with my dealer today. The changes are as follow. No more Sony bang and olufsen standard with 802a package. Tailgate applique is standard as well with that. No more avalanche grey and instead leadfoot grey along with race red. Everything else from 2017 stays the same for 2018. I lucked out and got the number one slot for 2018 at my dealer.

    HAHAHA wow I am so pissed right now. Nevermind guys. Just found out from that dealer today after calling and going through 5 different sales managers and non stop texting and calling of Kevin Wolzy at D Patrick Ford in Evansville Indiana that the manager has refused to sell me the vehicle at msrp and wants 5000 over msrp. I have never felt so lead on in my life and was told congratulations last week on my new raptor and took my credit card info for the deposit. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS DEALERSHIP, THEY ARE SCUM. Now back to trying to find a fucking reputable dealer. No wonder Ford has fired its CEO and is hurting for money.

    I have had an order /slot in on a 2018 RAPTOR for about a month now , of course the color we picked Avalanche is gone for 2018 and I've heard carbon fiber may go away due to supply issues . So back to the dealer next week , to reconfigure our RAPTOR.. I want LEAD FOOT , my wife as it will be her daily driver unsure at this point. Oh the joys of marriage !! Haha . Fortunately we have a great dealer and salesmen , so I'm confident we will get a far price . Updates to come .........

    I was told Avalanche is being replaced by Leadfoot on the 2018. I wanted Magnetic originally for my 17, my wife got in and insisted on Avalanche - I'm really glad she did - its an awesome colour and knowing they aren't offering it any more makes it more exclusive.

    Happy wife, happy life!

    I think that is a mis-labelled 2017 press photo. Leadfoot is MUCH darker....as seen on this Mustang...

    I actually work at a Ford Dealer. I was thinking about caving and buying a 2017 since we have 3 up for grabs right now, but I almost want to wait for 18. The sound system is a big thing for me and some of the upgrades sound like it may very well be worth it. 17 or 18 the truck is going to be a beast. Really wish I could go in an play with the Ford builder >< What's everyone thinking on waiting vs getting one now?

    I'm about to pull the trigger on a loaded 18 but I'm building it to 17 specs with the dealer.
    Kind of nervous about things that are changing because the order system still only has 17 options.
    Had to go to KC (I'm in Omaha) to get an MSRP dealer though.

    About the only thing I can fault on the truck is the audio - but I think I'd rather upgrade speakers than fork out for a 2018 not knowing how much better it will be - but I have B&O in my Audi and it is great
