Ford Reveals Several Easter Eggs for the 2021 Ford Raptor
Most automakers today want to offer their customers a little added excitement so they can appreciate their vehicles a little more. This is usually done by implementing “easter eggs” (also known as hidden references or clues) that are often embedded on the exterior or interior of the vehicle. In regard to the 2021 Ford Raptor, Ford incorporated several Easter eggs and hid them all throughout the truck. At first glance, a recent buyer of the Raptor wouldn’t know right off the bat where the easter eggs are or what they mean until they have done some of their own research online. There are a total of five easter eggs that current and future Raptor owners will be fond of and will be glad they are part of their truck.
Hidden QR Code
One of the first easter eggs that Ford embedded into the 2021 Ford Raptor is a secret QR code that is located on the rear fender by the code “FP GN03”. Anyone with a smartphone can scan it, and once the scan is complete, the person will be redirected to Ford’s Performance website. Ford is also offering an optional Raptor graphics package that includes a diamond-shaped pattern that resembles the F-22 Raptor Fighter jet’s diamond-shaped afterburner exhaust nozzles.
Fighter Jet Accents
The Ford Raptor’s design has been inspired by the American F-22 Fighter Jet, which is why the truck has “Raptor” in its name. On the hood of the truck, there is a heat extractor to cool the engine, in addition to functional side vents at the top of the trailing edge of the fender, all inspired by the F-22. The front fenders have an aggressive appearance that resembles the windswept body contours of the jet. In the graphics package, Ford states that the gradient design simulates the plane’s trail, while the diamond-shaped icons represent the shape of the F-22’s exhaust.
Road to Baja Map
There is an available 37-inch tire package that comes with a very different graphic design on the rear fenders, that to the naked eye may look like streaks of lightning, but upon closer examination, those “streaks” are trials of the Baja 1000 race route. The map starts from Ensenada to La Paz, Mexico, with checkpoints along the way.
Hidden American Flag
Inside the 2021 Ford Raptor’s dashboard is a hidden image of a tiny American flag in a code orange color which is one of Ford’s signature colors for the Ford Raptor. At first glance, the linear lines may seem like ordinary lines, but the blank square on the right-hand corner of the graphic resembles where the stars would be.
Hidden Raptor Badges
Most special edition vehicles have unique emblems, accents, and graphics packages that make them stand out from the regular trim levels. The 2021 Ford Raptor has several hidden badges that are located inside the headlight housings underneath the LEDs. It can be hard to sport since the badge is in a dark grey color, but it’s a nice little detail at a closer glance.
