The SVT Raptor is a high-performance version of Ford F 150. The F 150 is the one of the most unique off road pickup trucks in the market. SVT Raptor has everything from F 150 with extra wide stance and specially engineered suspension. With it’s oversized tires, this vehicle is not made for roads, but for other deserts and terrains which other trucks has no chance to cross. First appearance of the Raptor was in 2009.
Now, when we saw 2015 Ford F 150, we can also expect SVT Raptor to follow it in 2015. However, spy shots haven’t revealed any Raptor. With showing the new F 150, Ford doesn’t have to confirm that we can expect SVT Raptors, since it is certain now.
2015 Ford Raptor redesign
The 2015 Ford Raptor ’s look will be inspired and built on Atlas concept from 2013, which was unveiled same year at Detroit car show. Based on Atlas platform, we can expect distinct headlight setup and colored strip. SVT badges on the side-view mirrors are almost certain and squared-off front fenders with defined rocker panels and aggressive-looking tailgate. The new 2015 Raptor should bring from precious model 35-inch BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires modified specifically for this off roader. These will provide connection to the ground and stability which will better control for high-speed off-road situations.
As for the 2015 Ford F 150, similar weight changes are expected for the 2015 Ford Raptor. By using new materials, such as aluminum, weight should drop significantly.
