Initially announced at the 2008 SEMA Show, the F-150 SVT Raptor R was powered by a 5.4-liter V8. But for the 2010 model year, the pick-up truck will also use the all-new 6.2-liter premium V-8 engine that delivers a total of 411 hp and 434 ft.-lb. of torque. The new Raptor will go on sale on Dec. 1, with an MSRP of $41,995.

Today Ford also announced that starting 2011 the Raptor family will see the addition of a new member: the FR Raptor XT. It will be powered by a 500-hp (est.) 6.2-liter naturally aspirated engine mated to a Six-speed automatic transmission. There will only be 50 units built, ad each will be priced at $99,950.

Press release

Just one year after Ford unveiled the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor at the SEMA show, Ford today is announcing the long-anticipated power figures for the all-new 6.2-liter premium V-8 engine now available in this ultimate high-speed off-road performance truck.

When this optional powertrain in the Raptor arrives in showrooms in early 2010, the 6.2-liter V-8 will produce 411 hp and 434 ft.-lb. of torque, making Raptor the most powerful half-ton pickup available. Customers will now have the choice of two V-8 engines in the Raptor, Ford’s proven 5.4-liter Triton V-8 or the new 6.2-liter V-8, which can be ordered beginning Dec. 1, with an MSRP of $41,995 including destination and delivery.

The F-150 SVT Raptor, launched in August with Ford’s proven 320-hp 5.4-liter Triton V-8, is off to a strong start. Orders for the Raptor equipped with the standard 5.4-liter stand at more than 3,000, and the plant is at maximum capacity producing the ultimate high-speed off-road truck. In addition, Ford Racing will soon offer the 2011 FR Raptor XT, making Raptor even more capable in the rough stuff, but without giving up the control and comfort found in the production Raptor.

Considered an off-road-only pre-runner, the FR Raptor XT from Ford Racing builds upon the production Raptor’s already impressive capabilities. The FR Raptor XT is nearly the same truck that finished the 2008 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, but with all the comfort and convenience you’d find in a production Raptor. Essentially, FR Raptor XT is a turnkey professional pre-runner.

Key specifications of the FR Raptor XT include:

  • 500-hp (est.) 6.2-liter naturally aspirated engine
  • Six-speed automatic transmission
  • Electronically selectable 4x4; 4.56 gear sets; front and rear e-lockers
  • A-arm with uni-ball front; four-link RR suspension
  • 15-inch front/18-inch rear wheel travel
  • Coil-over with bypass shocks front and rear
  • Chromoly “4130” rollcage; extensive skid plating
  • Full featured interior, including power windows/windshield and air conditioning
  • Factory seating with five-point restraints
  • Off-road beadlock wheel/tires
  • Unique appearance package including tubular front and rear bumper and integral lighting

The FR Raptor XT joins Ford Racing’s successful turnkey race Mustangs available only from Ford dealers. There will be a production run of 50 units carrying a price of $99,950. The FR Raptor XT is not street legal, and is intended for off-road use only. Production timing will be announced at a later date.

I like the thought and idea of this truck. It goes out there, where no other pickup truck is really in contention, which takes a lot of guts for a manufacturer. I do like it though. I just would never use it for its true purposesi in off-road power because I’m not much of a truck or off-road person.

This truck is insane! A to Z. It’s the coolest thing to the road that’s larger than a sedan in a long time! Figuring what’s in it, it’s a pretty good bargain! Take an FX4,

oooooh it comes with fake orange carbon fiber...i could do without that. Nice job SVT tho it looks good. Can’t stand the cluster tho. Why does ford keep insisting on make there gage clusters small and putting sheet metal instead of larger gauges? It is a prime place that they could show quality design

It does not need any more does what it is designed to do perfectly now. It is the only truck on the market that makes a Ram look kind wimpy. Ford is really on a roll the past few years. In ten years I would not be surprised if Ford was the only domestic car company.

Much of the information you have adriansmith and this Raptor proves that the power is too important on a pickup truck especially if you’re in an off-road track. I’m curious about the Raptor XT. Not just on the power output, there are many special features added on that truck that’s why the price of it is almost $100K.

The first race for the Ford F150 SVT Raptor R race truck was the 2008 SCORE Tecate Baja 1000, where it finished 3rd in Class 8.
