PRESS RELEASE DEARBORN, Mich., Feb. 19, 2010 – Customer demand for Ford’s new F-150 SVT Raptor is moving nearly as fast as the world’s only production high-speed off-road performance truck. Already, over 5,300 orders have been placed for the new performance pickup.

The order banks are now open for the all-new 6.2-liter V-8, and the orders keep rolling in.”
The F-150 Raptor is the first ever high-speed off-road performance truck offered by any manufacture and highlights Ford’s 33 years of truck leadership by emphasizing Built Ford Tough innovation and engineering. Developed with the DNA of an off-road pre-runner, the comprehensive modifications to the truck focused on chassis and suspension. Read more!
