Maybe with this version 2017 Ford f-150 SVT Raptor will be like the first Raptor shown on the market in 2010 when he caused the surprising and pleasing among customers. It surely will be the subject of proud in Ford, like the other model Baja 1000 and similar, and surely with all changes this model deserves the attention in all possible buyers.
There will be two trim versions – the sportier a little shorter on 133-inch wheelbase called Super Cab and a little longer, 145 inch Super Crew. Both will be made of aluminum with composite hood and front fenders which allow 500 pounds curb lighter weight. But, there is no recognizable suspension, needed for off-road challenges and even the new vehicle is robust and larger than last model, that aluminum at the front and tuned springs making the car give the feeling of weakness for tough adventures. When we add the 17-inch wheels as the only option and 35 inches in height we surely can say that 2016 Ford f-150 SVT Raptor is a decent car for fast and long driving, but without proper details for something serious in off-road adventures. Including the known FORD grille in the front and small front and rear bumpers the known size of the truck is changed with departure angles and pinched-up rear end. With giant front skid plate and front fender vents, this car has the recognizable impression of robustness and largeness.
Being a large and wide truck, 2016 Ford f-150 SVT Raptor is surely comfort and spacious inside, too. There is a lot of space for five passengers and with sports seats, leather steering wheel and upholstery and some carbon-fiber details, it makes the driving experience luxury and comfort. There is a whole safety package with airbags and safety gear and whole infotainment system together with technology which is expected in this car class. But, there are not many high-tech details tough; Ford is made for driving performances, not for spending time in between driving enjoyment.
The engine is 6.2-liter V8 which is the same as on the last model, but we have the promise from Ford that the new version will have more strength than given 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque for even 450 horsepower in turbo six engine version. All versions will have six-speed automatic transmission and front and all-wheel drive system.
