Hot on the sales figures of the fastest production off-road vehicle ever, the SVT Raptor, Ford has announced it will be offering the Baja-ready truck in SuperCrew configuration for 2011. Other than the length of the cab, not much else is changed from the current production model, but the 6.2L “Boss” engine will be the only engine available on the heavier Super Crew. No word yet on pricing, but expect the roomier Raptor to sell for just a bit more than the $41,995 base price of the current 6.2L version.
Having just announced the new 6.2-liter V8 is now available for the F-150 SVT Raptor, Ford will also reportedly deliver a SuperCrew version of the popular on-road/off-road truck. News comes from the folks at InsideLine, who have also spotted the truck in question testing in Detroit.
The SuperCrew version will come with four fully functional doors, rather than the half-doors that come as a part of the extended-cab SuperCab version, currently available.
Presumably, Ford will offer the F-150 SVT Raptor SuperCrew with both the 320-hp 5.4-liter V8 and the new 411-hp 6.2-liter V8. News of this product expansion continues to support the surprising success of the Raptor, with 7,000 models having already been sold.
