Ford announces 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition
Autoblog
April 9, 2013
by Michael Harley


Ford has pulled the wraps off its anticipated 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition model, a new variant of the popular street-legal off-road specialist. In a nutshell, the "special" is all cosmetic – there are no mechanical upgrades to the truck and its 6.2-liter V8 (411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque), Torsen limited-slip differential, beadlock-capable wheels and internal triple-bypass FOX Racing Shox dampers all remain untouched.

The SVT Raptor Special Edition, which adds cosmetic enhancements to the existing Luxury Package, will be offered in Ruby Red Metallic and Tuxedo Black Metallic with box-side graphics. The interior upgrades include Brick Red seat bolsters (with black inserts), cloth honeycomb highlights and a console top finish panel.

Why not to think in a SUV version of this truck?? A modern Bronco....Maybe Ford could give us a version of the next Expedition, with short wheelbase and more "macho" content

makes me wonder if my "Lincoln Panther" (Nov.2012) could be a possibility??
...part Raptor, part Mustang/LincStang = an all-terrain rugged/fast/Lux! 2-row SupersportSuv
...wlb 115.5, ovl 192.1, width 78.1, ht 66.5 (BMW X6 but squarebacked)...

imho a special-new Bronco wouldn't cost less than the existing Raptor ($44k base price?)
might be a better fit at Lincoln with a couple thousand 'gussyings'

Wasn't Navicross something like that idea? It had power from a supercharged 4.2 V-8 and perm all wheel drive? I'm sure we could get the EB V-8 from the Mustang in an updated Navicross.

I'm not too familiar with the Navicross (except from using its grille in old chops)
but afaik
it was very carCuv-softroad-like
where the "Panther" would be a Lux-superBronco (per the Raptor's super suspension) and perhaps with a half-touch of Hummer?
(my mentioning the X6 was just for size)
