Ford’s F-150 Raptor is the Porsche 911 GT3 of pickup trucks. Like a 911 GT3, the Raptor is a racebred piece of machinery you can drive every day on the street. Okay, the GT3′s reflexes were honed in the green hell of the legendary Nurburgring Nordschliefe road course in Germany. The Raptor, meanwhile, was developed on the stony desert tracks, powdery sand washes, and bone-jarring whoopdies of Baja California. Point the Raptor down a rough desert track, and this thing will go as fast as you dare, without turning into a dribbling mess, out of breath and out of brakes, after a dozen miles or so. And it’ll make you feel like a born racer.
True to its Raptor heritage, this more accommodating newcomer also comes with full SVT-spec Baja-bashing chassis bits, including the sophisticated four-wheel drive package. “We spent a lot of time getting the ride and suspension characteristics of the SuperCrew similar to that of the SuperCab, and we were successful in getting the same character and flavor out of the SuperCrew,” said Jamal Hameedi, SVT chief nameplate engineer. “While the SuperCab and SuperCrew both have different strengths, each is worthy of the Raptor nameplate.”
The Raptors are built using the biggest brakes and strongest half-shafts in the F-150 parts bin, along with the heavy-duty rear axle. Engineers at SVT, Ford’s in-house hot-shop, made hundreds of other detail mechanical changes, ranging from stiffening the engine and transmission mounts 45 percent to developing trick new forged-aluminum front wishbones.

Inside, the 2011 Raptors feature standard black trim or the optional Molten Orange Interior Accent Package. They also boast revamped gauge graphics as well as a new 4.2-inch LCD central “productivity screen” that provides the driver with information on the status of various dynamic systems, including off-road mode, Hill Descent Control, electronic locking differential settings and the AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control. It also contains a dedicated off-road mode that presents critical info on steering wheel angle and vehicle attitude when negotiating grades.
For added control, the Raptor’s six-speed automatic transmission now comes with SelectShift capability that’s activated by switch mounted on the center console. A host of convenience/security items — including a telescoping steering column, 110V AC power inverter, express up/down power windows, integrated spotter mirror, perimeter alarm and a head restrain for the second-row middle seat — also join the standards list while a new Raptor Plus Package offers a rear-view camera and trailer braking.
