The Raptor nameplate was used by Ford for its “high-performance”, more upmarket pickup trucks and SUVs. The Raptor has been designated as the highest-performance version of the F-150, Ranger and Bronco, mainly being built and sold for the US market. For the 2010 model year, Ford SVT introduced the F-150 SVT Raptor, its second vehicle derived from the Ford F-150.
Optimized for off-road use, the Raptor is fitted with four-wheel drive as standard, with a mid-travel suspension system and all-terrain tires. The model is also equipped with the most powerful engines available in the F-150/Ranger lines. Along with wider fenders, the Raptor is fitted with its own grille, replacing the Ford Blue Oval emblem with large “FORD” lettering in the grille. The F-150 is Ford’s most iconic nameplate and there have been more units sold over it’s production life than any other car in the world.
The example we have on offer has been extensively modified and is far from the norm when it comes to the F-150 Raptor SVT. Having completed the right-hand-drive conversion in Canada, the car was then imported into South Africa in 2015, allowing the vehicle to be fully registered for our roads. The SVT performance upgrades from factory includes adjustable coilvers and SVT suspension sway bars. Custom upgrades include a winch, air compressor, ‘Baja’ styled front and rear bumpers, Mickey Thompson mud terrain tyres, upgraded exhuast, extra lights, upgraded sound system, upgraded diffs and shock absorbers by Fox with reservoires. The car has also been fitted with a Roush supercharger to the 6.2L V8 which allows the car to push out roughly 700bhp. This F-150 Raptor SVT is a beast of note and needs to be seen in the flesh to truly appreciate its monster nature.
