2021 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor comes as a continuation of the famous models in class and as an upgraded version of the basic model from F-series. Since it has always been a stronger version of the model, SVT should have a new engine that supports that strength. It will happen with this model, with the engine taken from Mustang and upgraded for Ford truck’s needs. We do not know how the model will be changed in design, but not forget that whole F-series should be changed next year, and the new generation comes then. Some parts of that new series surely come with the SVT model.
- The model should have a great new engine.
- There are expected changes in design.
- The model has not been redesigned for a long time.
- The price is too high for the class.
With impressive changes that will come with new 2021 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor in term of the strength and speed, the chassis and design should be followed by great upgrades in design. This truck simply has to be larger and more aerodynamical. However, we were able to see only the basic shape of the model when the manufacturer drove it on test driving. We expect that it will have few new lines and dents on the sides, while the recognizable shape of the front end should be the same.
We were not able to say much about the cabin in 2021 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor since it was not finished and even visible on test driving. So, assuming that changes under the hood will be followed by major upgrades in the cabin, we expect that it will have new technology and modern design of the cabin.
The major role in the upgrading of 2021 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor plays the engine. Not only that is it stronger and faster, but it also showed great performances and economy on test driving. However, the engine is not completely new. It is already used on Mustang Shelby GT500 5.2-liter V8 petrol powertrain. Although not yet official, the engine should produce at least 700 horsepower of strength. Let us recall the old version with only 450 horsepower in 3.5-liter V6 engine that current commercial vehicles have, like Toyota Tacoma. This engine, though, should make the model closer to the larger models, like Ram 1500 and especially Ram TRX Pickup, a major competitor.
2021 Ford f-150 SVT Raptor Release Date and Price
Unfortunately, all of those great upgrades come with the increase in price. It is the only way to support major changes that this model gets. The price should be raised from $55,000 that current F-150 cost to $70,000 which 2021 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor should have. Of course, the price will be followed by great additions and upgrades.
