The new generation Ford F-150 SVT Raptor has already become an icon and is selling like hot cakes in America, but Ford has decided to make it even more desirable by giving it a new and more powerful engine.
It’s the 6.2 liter V8 engine with 411 horsepower and 434 ft-lb of torque. They also put this engine in the 2011 Super Duty models, but it’s been specially tuned for the Raptor.
To make sure the new powerplant, which makes the Raptor the most powerful half-ton pickup on the market, is also reliable Ford has tested it endlessly in a purposely built 62 mile loop in desert, and also in Baja 1000.
The 2011 Ford F150 SVT Raptor 6.2 V8 pricing starts from $41,995, and just like other models it’s a hot seller. Ford has already received 3000 orders for the new model.
