Revealed: 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition

Today, Ford reveals the 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition, the ultimate high-performance off-road
pickup truck. The Special Edition includes Ruby Red Metallic and Tuxedo Black Metallic exterior colors and box-side graphics. The interior receives upgrades such as Brick Red seat bolsters with black inserts and cloth honeycomb highlights, and center stack and door panel applique accents.

SVT Raptor is powered by a 6.2-L V8 engine producing best-in-class 411 hp and 434 lb. ft of torque, mated to an electronic six-speed automatic transmission with tow/haul mode and SelectShift Automatic functionality. The 4WD system features electronic shift-on-the-fly capability for the transfer case. The front axle in the SVT Raptor features a Torsen differential with 4.10 to 1 gearing. The rear axle is also 4.10 to 1, with an electronic-locking differential.

"Raptor owners are looking for a high-performing off-road pickup truck with the features and luxuries found in today's premium trucks," said Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. "Since its launch in 2009, we've continually moved Raptor forward in a capability and design, and the 2014 Special Edition is the best Raptor yet."

Ford sold more than 13,000 Raptors in 2012. SVT Raptor sales are up 14 percent in 2013. The 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor goes on sale this fall.
