Ford F-150 Raptor SVT

A teaser video showing the new, SVT-tuned Ford F-150 Raptor in action has hit the media recently, generating some fresh hype for Ford’s newest pickup truck. Tentatively scheduled for release in 2010, the Ford has been overheard boasting to its dealer network that the F-150 Raptor will be “The first and only Baja 1000 Trophy Truck you’ll be able to buy from a dealer.” Obviously intended to be the off-roading expert of the F-150 family, the F-150 Raptor will be outfitted with customized Fox Racing long-travel shocks, 35″ all-terrain tires, and Ford’s 6.1L BOSS V8 engine, tentatively expected to produce 380 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.

While the legitimacy of the source that provided this quote has still yet to be confirmed, it is rumored that one of the Ford execs on hand for the Raptor’s initial unveiling a few months back said of the F-150 Raptor, “We’re going to drive this right up Toyota’s ass.”
