Since hitting the market in 2009, the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor has gained plenty of steam and is now one of the fastest-turning vehicles in the industry.
With only a 15-day supply on dealer lots, the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor has had record sales during eight of the past 10 months with sales up 14 percent this year. The high-performance, off-road pickup truck has carved itself a new niche in the market place. As a result, the American automaker plans on ramping up production, increasing assembly from three trucks per hour to five.
The SVT Raptor is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine with 411 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque.
“What’s helping drive Raptor sales is that Raptor delivers unmatched off-road performance to our customers,” said Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “Raptor is also proof of our commitment to offer a truck for every customer and continuously improving them to meet our customers’ evolving needs.”
