2011 FORD F-150 RAPTOR SVT
After making headlines as a breakthrough vehicle in its inaugural model year, the F-150 Raptor SVT pickup returned to the marketplace in 2011 with an upgraded standard powertrain and an additional cab style offering. Gone was the base 320-horsepower 5.4-liter V-8 engine, with the previously optional 6.2-liter V-8 (producing 411 horsepower and 434 foot-pounds of torque) taking its place as the standard engine across the Raptor model range.
The other big news for 2011 was the availability of a four-door SuperCrew cab configuration on a 145-inch-wheelbase along with a 5.5-foot bed box. The 12-inch-longer wheelbase on the Raptor SuperCrew over the standard SuperCab version not only offered more interior room, but also a more comfortable ride, especially in rough off-road situations. The newly added SuperCrew also featured a larger 36-gallon fuel tank and increased towing capability, rated at 8,000 pounds, compared to the 6,000-pound trailering capacity of the Raptor SuperCab model.
Outside, Raptor added two new exterior paint choices, Ingot Silver Metallic and Tuxedo Black. Also new for 2011 were optional matte black hood graphics with the F-150 Raptor SVT logo.
Raptor’s interior also received upgrades for 2011. A new “Raptor Plus Package” added a rear view camera and trailer brake controller. Additionally, the “Raptor Luxury Package” received additional features, with folding power exterior mirrors and a Remote Start System with integrated key fob added to the list.
