Ford F-150 SVT Raptor

2010 - 2016 (1st Gen) SVT Raptor Specs & Information

Jumps, whoops, mud, snow, sand - Ford's SVT Raptor was designed to do it all, and the company's intense advertising campaigns sparked overwhelming excitement in the period leading up to the F-150 Raptor's release. 35" tires and Fox internal bypass racing shocks provide off-road performance never previously available in a mass produced truck. While the Raptor shares the F-150 namesake, it shares very little if anything with a standard model. Its body panels, interior design, frame, and drivetrain differ entirely from other F-150 packages. Baja inspired fenders and an extra wide track give the SVT Raptor a unique stance while the 6.2L V-8 provides over 400 horsepower for owners to play with. There were suggestions early on that the Raptor would be yet another short-lived, low production performance option from Ford, however the 1st generation Raptor was produced from 2010 to 2016 and a more capable 2nd generation edition was introduced for the 2017 model year. For more information on the 2nd generation, aluminum bodied Raptor, see: 2nd Gen F-150 Raptor

Ford's SVT (Special Vehicle Team) has been known to deliver some wild rides, but the SVT Raptor takes performance to an entirely new level. And how does one test such a unique, capable vehicle? Why, the Baja 1000 of course. Ford has jumped, drifted, raced, and likely even rolled the Raptor during their extensive testing. Put through every off-road terrain and obstacle course imaginable, Ford released a vehicle of custom quality and capability to the mass production market. One might even argue that the Raptor is Ford SVT's most successful creation to date. The Raptor is 3 inches wider and features a 7 inch wider track width than a standard F-150.

When it launched in 2010, the SVT Raptor was available with either a 5.4L or 6.2L V-8, the later producing 411 hp and 434 lb-ft at the crankshaft. In its first year, the Raptor was only available as a SuperCab model, but a SuperCrew version (4 full doors) became optional in 2011. Buyers originally had 5 colors to choose from and could order the Raptor with or without the unique graphics package. An electronic locking rear differential stuffed with 4.10 gears was also standard equipment, ensuring maximum traction when owners decide to dig deep into the powerband of the 6.2L "Boss" V-8 (standard on all 2011+ SVT Raptors). If that's not enough, a heavy duty 6 speed automatic transmission sits between fully boxed frame rails. A modified "Raptor R" completed the 41st Baja 1000 in 25 minutes 28 seconds, placing third in its class. At the popular "Best in the Desert" series, the Raptor R took second overall in its class.
