For the 2010 model year, Ford introduced the F-150 SVT Raptor for die-hard off-road enthusiasts. With serious off-road capabilities, the Raptor features a wider stance and FOX shock absorbers with 11.2” front suspension travel capability and 12.1” in the rear. In addition to its increased ground clearance, the Raptor houses a 6.2-liter, 411 hp V8, making it a powerful contender off the factory line. In terms of color schemes, the Raptor is available in blue flame, oxford white, tuxedo black, and molten orange with a "digital mud" decal scheme as an option
The cost of a Raptor is significantly increased due to upgrades that set it apart from the base level F-150. Some of the upgrades, aside from the composite front bodywork and BFG AT tires, include significantly reinforced cast front A-arms, heavy duty skid plates and engine protectors below. Originally, Ford projected the Raptor price to be approximately $3,000 over that of the 5.4-liter model of the F-150. A Raptor R version has also been produced in the form of a 500 hp Baja competitor for Ford’s SVT division.
For 2017, the Raptor is undergoing a facelift, and is presumably undergoing the same shift to aluminum construction the F-150 underwent from 2014-2015. At the Detroit Motor Show, a 2017 concept emerged, featuring significantly exposed and enforced front suspension, upgraded lights, and a new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that promises to out-power the 6.2-liter engine.
