It looks like the company plans to revive the famous SVT badge and the newest model that will come with it should be a famous off-roader Raptor. This is a hi-performance off-road version of the current generation, characterized by plenty of modifications compared to the standard model. It comes with numerous chassis tweaks like new suspension, but also with various visual upgrades. Finally, there is a powerful 450-hp V6 engine. The next year is about to bring novelties. We will see the new version of this off-roader, which will come as 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor. Besides visual and chassis upgrades, it could also get a new engine.
In terms of exterior design, the company will bring several enhancements in terms of styling. Though the base shape will remain unchanged, we will see a bunch of new details that will emphasize a truck’s sporty character even more. However, modifications on the chassis seem more important. The 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will come with a new Trail Control system, which should improve truck’s off-road capabilities. This advanced system is specially designed for hard terrains and provides excellent traction in all conditions. Basically, it controls pretty much everything, from braking and sending power, to braking each wheel individually if needed. Also, we should see a few new color options in the offer.
On the inside, the 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will come in a familiar layout. Base cabin design won’t be changed, though we will see some very interesting new details. First of all, it is important to mention that the new truck will come with brand-new Recaro seats. Also, we expect to see a special treatment of interior color schemes and trims. Finally, we should see a pretty unique list of standard features.
2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Engine
So far, all SVT-badged models were powered by a V8 engine and we believe that the 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor won’t be an exception. The current Raptor uses a super-efficient 3.5-liter V6 engine, which delivers amazing 450 horsepower. However, the competition is arming as well. Latest reports suggest that both new Chevy Silverado and Ram 1500 will introduce new performance version with large V8 units. Both trucks will feature significantly more power compared to Raptor, so it’s Ford’s turn for some appropriate response. Most likely, this response will be in a shape of the eight-cylinder engine. At the moment, we can’t say more details about the engine. However, several reports suggest a new 5.2-liter unit. This is a new version of the popular Coyote, which company uses for the new Shelby GT350, which delivers amazing 526 horsepower.
2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Release Date and Price
The new 2020 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will come next year, though we can’t say more precise date at the moment. When it comes to price, expect something like $60,000 for this model. For the similar price, you should look for 2020 Chevrolet Reaper too.
