2013 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Augusta GA
Yes, of course we realize the Raptor is equipped with uber-fab on- and off-road capabilities. But, oh, how super sexy is this beast? For the 2013 model-year, Ford gave its menacing F-150 class-leading bits—assuring it stays one step ahead of the game. For example, this SVT Raptor became the first vehicle available with factory beadlock-compatible alloy wheels, which help increase grip in low-traction conditions. According to Ford—these wheels are the first in the world to allow for conventional and beadlock-mounting abilities. And, Ford Racing makes available a beadlock ring kit, permitting for beadlock mounting on the Raptor's factory wheels. But what good are wheels that offer off-road prowess, if the rest of the rig doesn't hold up. Our thoughts exactly. No worries, the 2013 Raptor also serves up a standard front Torsen limited-slip differential (4WD), electronic-locking rear differential, and internal triple-bypass Fox Racing Shox dampers.
So what kind of configuration is strapped under the Raptor's hood, you ask? Ford situates this bad boy with a 6.2-liter V8, cranking a very-impressive-best-in-class 411 horses and 434 lb.-ft. of torque, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with a tow/haul mode and SelectShift Automatic feature. For the 4WD system, Ford designs the transfer case to allow for electronic shift-on-the-fly capability. The front axle features the Torsen differential with 4.10 to 1 gearing. The rear axle is also 4.10 to 1, with an electronic-locking differential.
Jaw-dropping aesthetics, hefty engine, what more could you want? Oh, right, safety equipment. Ford endows its SVT Raptor with an ultra-tough safety canopy system, along with AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) and four-wheel ABS; trailer sway control; dual-stage front airbags; SecuriLock passive anti-theft engine immobilizer; SOS Post-Crash Alert System; manual lap/shoulder safety belts with height adjusters, pretensioners and energy management retractors on outside front positions and—finally—Ford's unique MyKey system.
Outside, Ford offered up its SVT Raptor in several paint schemes, including Race Red, Blue Flame Metallic, Tuxedo Black Metallic, Ingot Silver Metallic, Oxford White and a Raptor-exclusive hue for 2013: desert camouflage-inspired Terrain. Inside this rig is outfitted with leather-and-cloth-trimmed seats, while the driver’s side includes power actuation and six-way adjustability. These seats also feature Raptor-specific bolsters to keep the driver and first-row passenger firmly in place, regardless of terrain conditions. The Raptor's interior features continue with a unique center stack and door trim appliqué finish, plus leather-trimmed steering wheel with thumb pads. Techy bits on the Raptor are showcased in the form of Ford’s acclaimed Sync communications and entertainment system. SVT Raptor’s driver connectivity can be upgraded to MyFord Touch, using an 8-inch center stack touch screen with five-way controls mounted on the steering wheel and features a 4.2-inch productivity screen, mounted in the instrument cluster. Driver-configurable, this LCD screen includes menus for gauge setup, trip computer, fuel economy and towing/off-road applications. Plus, the Raptor can be specified with an available voice-activated navigation system, which utilizes the 8-inch screen and SD-card capability for map and points-of-interest storage. Finally, this beast can be had a few different add-ons: namely, Ford's optional Luxury Package, which tacks on several comfort and convenience items; an interior color accent package, featuring contrasting blue against a black environment and real aluminum trim components, and a rear-view camera.
