SEMA 2009: Ford Unveils 411-hp F-150 SVT Raptor and 500-hp FR Raptor XT


As though Ford didn't have enough going on at the 2009 SEMA Show, the automaker today announced two big updates for the amazing F-150 SVT Raptor. First up is official confirmation and performance numbers for the new, larger V8 engine. Possibly the only weak point in the Raptor was its relatively average 320-hp 5.4-liter V8 motor. Now, Ford has said a new 6.2-liter V8 with 411-hp and 434 ft-lbs of torque that will be available starting December 1st. The new, more powerful off-road capable truck will be priced from $41,995.

Possibly more exciting for the true off-road enthusiasts is news that Ford will also offer a new competition-ready FR Raptor XT, which is essentially the same vehicle that ran in the 2008 Tecate SCORE Baja 1000, but with the same comfort features of the standard Raptor. It will get the same 6.2-liter V8, but tuned to 500-hp, along with a six-speed automatic transmission and a suspension that allows for 15-inches of front travel and 18-inches of rear travel.

Ford will build just 50 FR Raptor XTs at a price of $99,950 each.

That would be sweet but I think the price tag is a little high

Sure you could build one cheaper... but that defeats the purpose of being able to just buy one that is already built! haha.

It's probably just more of a collectors item than anything, they're only selling 50, how many of those do you think will actually be used in the desert?

yeah good point, but the guys that race in the baja 1000 and races like that with trophey trucks spend that much or more on their trucks. and if you want a diesel just buy the 320hp version and drop a 6bt cummins in it! lol
