Posted on by
There were multiple spy shots that leaked during last few weeks featuring 2018 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, but none of them actually showcased the SVT Raptor version. This doesn’t necessarily imply that there won’t be any SVT Raptor edition of the forthcoming F-150. This is because the SVT Raptor is an implicit certainty for the forthcoming F-150.

On the exterior, you may expect some inspiration drawn from the 2013 Atlas Concept that was unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show but with a tight-fisted appearance. You can expect to find a distinctive headlight setup partially segregated by a body tinted strip; more squared front fenders, side-view mirrors with SVT logo, well-defined rocker panels, the tail-lights matching the headlights and a tailgate with an aggressive look.
As with the base 2015 F-150 model, Ford will work towards reducing the total weight of the truck by utilizing the lightweight materials made of aluminum as one of the components. The new 2015 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is most likely to retain the V8 engine of the current model but with an increased output of the order of 450 HP. Ford will also focus on increasing the fuel efficiency by 10 to 15 percent.
Ford’s New Raptor Designing – Fundamental Theory New Look
The next generation Raptor is very much to be on the lines of the previous generation SVT pickup with heavy-duty and high on performance suspension system. With tires that would support the off-road fundamental of the vehicle and with a body having a sportive look and room for bigger tires, you can expect flared front fenders, a unique looking hood and flashy graphic designs that would clearly signal that it is an all new Raptor.
It is a likelihood that the vehicle will roll out with a V8 engine that will provide an increased output of about 450 HP with capability of reaching 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 7 seconds. The top speed of the vehicle would be of the order of 155 mph. Ford can look into a number of options for the exact specifications of the engine. The current version of ford Raptor is powered by 6.2 litre 8 valve engine capable of producing power of 411 HP and is paired with an automatic gearbox with 6-speed settings.
