Spied! New Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
We've seen the all-new 2015 Ford F-150 at auto shows across the nation, but now we have finally managed to score shots of an early prototype for the next-generation SVT Raptor. The new Raptor, expected to be released as a 2016 or 2017 model year truck, features a distinct new grille and hood design. It also appears to adopt an aluminum crew cab body just like the new F-150. This new body structure may lead to a serious weight reduction, which means better performance and fuel economy. In addition to these photos, we have heard that the next generation Raptor may come with a downsized engine for the new generation. Our spy shooters heard the distinct sound of a EcoBoost V-6 when following the Raptor. Whether the final Raptor will include this engine remains to be seen, but we hope this won't take away the performance of this off-road monster.
