Ford F-150 SVT Raptor




It's not really my kind of things, but it's actually kind of cool that someone is still actually making something like that.
Sort of a Harley of cars.

A big trucky truck with a big old V8 in it....
Actually 2 V8s. A 5.4 Liter with 320 hp and a 6.2 Liter with 400 hp are available.

The 5.4 Liter will cost $39 000, while the 6.2 Liter version will cost $3000 more.

Pretty expensive. But it looks pretty special.
If you want to drive something original. American in the old fashion way.

This might turn out to be the last of a dying breed...

This is beyond gaudy...it's what Toby Keith would drive.

What an ignorant comment, you are a democrat aren't you???

I am a democrat and I love the fact that Ford has the balls to actually bring this to market. It is truly an impressive vehicle.

If you haven't seen what it is capable of I strongly suggest you search YouTube for the videos.

It sums up all that's bad about America....and all that's good. If I were a yank, I'd have one to carry the wife's iQ around in.

I'm happy you appreciate this vehicle, but my comment wasn't "ignorant."


If you haven't seen what it is capable of I strongly suggest you search YouTube for the videos.Thanks, but no thanks. Call me old fashioned, but I just find it absurd that people want a truck to be a race car. I do respect that people can like any vehicle they want for whatever reasons they wish, however I will comment as I wish (or as Vince allows here).

Ford does get big kudos for being financially solvent in these turbulent times. If this silly truck will help them, then so be it. It'll likely be just a halo vehicle for a very narrow market and money wasted instead of something more important.

hmm...
the Raptor does amazing things (partly) thru modifications to the F-series suspension

now, think what (some of) those modifications could do for the upcoming F-Awd Explorer!

a waste of time/resources? I think NOT ;)

No, it's what Mr. Keith would be paid to drive.

Do you think that Tiger Woods really was all that hot for Buicks?
