An interesting thing is about to happen in the lineup of the famous truck. It looks like we are about to see a new version and that will be nothing less than a vehicle with the famous SVT badge. These versions aren’t in the offer anymore, so this will definitely be some kind of a comeback of the legendary performance like.
- Strong on-road performances
- Plenty of power
- Huge V8 sound
- Revival of the famous performance line
- Not so efficient
- High price tag
- Still waits for the confirmation
The first model that is about to come with such designation will be the 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. As you can see, it will carry a very interesting name, which promises a lot of interesting things in the future.
When it comes to base design characteristics, the new model will without any doubt be based on the standard F-150. Furthermore, you can notice the “Raptor“ in its name, which sounds quite interesting, considering that previous SVT models were rather on-road performance trucks.
This leads us to a conclusion that aesthetics will be very close to the famous off-roader. On the other side, count on a lot of modifications in terms of mechanics, especially when it comes to chassis and suspension setup. The 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will sit much lower, in a manner of a rear truck street racer. Also, count on bigger wheels and various aerodynamical upgrades.
On the inside, the 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will be quite interesting as well. Of course, we are counting on a lot of distinctive details. Still, the base layout will be pretty much the same as in other F-150 models. On the other side, the list of distinctive details will be pretty long as well.
It should include things like sports seats, lots of sporty trimming, unique color schemes, pedals etc. Furthermore, a lot of “SVT” badges is expected as well.
This is the tricky point of the 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. Normally, we would expect the same 3.5-liter V6, which is characterized by an impressive output of 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. However, it looks like the company wants to offer something different. The current Raptor has been often criticized for its lack of cylinders.
So, the new truck will probably come with a V8 engine and that should be a brand-new 7.0-liter unit, which was initially planned for Super Duty models. Details about the new engine are still unavailable. Expect from a new model to compete with models like Ram PowerWagon and similar vehicles.
2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Release Date and Price
The 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor could hit the market by the end of this year, but more likely in 2020. It is too early to speculate about the price, though some reports suggest a sum of $60,000 for base models.
