2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Ann Arbor MI

Ford's Special Vehicles Team (SVT) performance arm has worked its magic on the F-150 pickup twice before. Both of those offerings, the F-150 SVT Lightnings of 1993-1995 and 1999-2004, were hopped-up street trucks. For 2010, SVT is at it again.

Introduction
Ford's Special Vehicles Team (SVT) performance arm has worked its magic on the F-150 pickup twice before. Both of those offerings, the F-150 SVT Lightnings of 1993-1995 and 1999-2004, were hopped-up street trucks. For 2010, SVT is at it again. This time, SVT is aiming at off-road enthusiasts with the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor.

The SVT Raptor will fit in the mold of the pre-runner trucks that are used to scout a course prior to an off-road race. It will start with the SuperCab version redesigned F-150, and incorporate suspension modifications to improve off-roading and exterior changes for a more aggressive look. It will initially come with the largest engine currently offered in the F-150, a 5.4-liter V-8, but a more-powerful 6.2-liter V-8 engine will be available later. To whet consumers' appetites for the new performance pickup, Ford is entering a factory-modified version of the truck in late November, called the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor R, in the Baja 1000 Mexican off-road race. An SVT official says the company will use lessons learned in the Baja 1000 to further develop the truck prior to its release next summer.
