Ecoboost Raptor Tail Lights

Take a look at the new tail lights on the ecoboost Raptor, note the sensor embedded, they're going to be EXPENSIVE if you need a replacement...

Looks great. I wonder what the reason behind integrating the sensor was. Was it purely a design decision or does it offer other benefits as well?

It sucks that this will make the cost of the whole tail lamp assembly cost more but at least what we gain is a cleaner look and less chance of it getting damaged since it's not often you damage your tail lights.

No you're right, but theres no simple bulb replacement anymore. A ford tech freind of mine told me a story about a couple came in with a Flex with a bum LED on the drivers side ended up costing near $1,000 in parts just to replace the entire assembly.

Sure they're pretty but they drive up the cost of components for the consumer drastically...

it definitely won't be cheap, it's whole mini components rather than $1, $2 bulbs.

but seeing how infrequent it is to spend here...it won't be all that much of an issue

we'll see how shatter proof they are especially in open country...

Yea, I was going to say that unless you get rear ended, I think that your taillights are unlikely to break. Hopefully since they are more expensive and contain sensors, Ford also took the time to make the taillights more durable.

what are you expecting to happen to it out in open country? don't see that being much of an issue, still infrequent.

Have you had your taillights shatter before?

Tail light guards should be up for consideration if the chances of it shattering is high, although it may make the tail lights look worse.
