Repost: Ford F-150 SVT Raptor 2013
2013 's hit to rock your world pick-up style would be no other than the 2013 Ford SVT Raptor, and its coming your way with higher levels of compatibility to take your breath away! Its built gives it the advantage of being all rough and tough, sturdy enough to have the better user-friendly and off-road capability. Ford couldn’t possibly do anything to make it any more astounding than it is currently, they just keep leaving their customers with jaw-dropping features every time.
2013 model has taken over massively with the essential update of a new set of forged –aluminum conventional tires which can later be upgraded to extra beadlocks after purchase. The body hasn’t quite changed since the last model came around, as it’s what attracted the most customers to come around. That gigantic “Ford” grill simply compliments the aggressive heavy duty look they gave to it. This is the first time Ford has so much to offer for just the tires!
The latest feature assures the driver to be relaxed, thanks to the all-new optional HID lights which give you a crystal clear vision during the nighttime. Ford Raptor comes in the same colors this year as the last which include; Race Red, Blue Flame Metallic, Tuxedo Black Metallic, Ingot Silver Metallic, and Oxford White. However, this year they did manage to surprise you with a new color which is the all-so brilliant Beige.
Inside this beauty, you’ll come across the same leather and cloth trimmed seating 6-way adjustable power driver’s seat as in the previous models. Along comes the system which is now a part of the hall of fame, the SYNC with MyFord Touch system. It provides the consumer with a 5-way control on the steering wheel which provides the driver with the ease of access to any option while keeping their concentration on the road.
The engine on you can find on a Ford Raptor SVT will be a 6.2 liter V8 that delivers a total of 411 HP and a peak torque of 434-lbs ft. Not much has changed since the last model regarding the engine; as it still offers the same 6-speed automatic transmission which includes the tow/haul mode and the SelectShift Automatic functionality. For those who are not aware of the term “SelectShift”, it is simply a series of internal transmission modifications to help to increase fuel economy and decrease drivetrain power loss.
