The 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is a high-performance model of the admired F-150 pickup truck of Ford that is one among the most exclusive and competent off-road manufacture of vehicles ever made. By means of an additional-wide stance, individually-designed suspension and extra-large tires, the new Raptor is heavily on the pavement, but a super champion in the desert, where it can trek at nearly triple-digit velocities through land that would rip lesser trucks separately.
Ford frequently tweaked and modernized the Raptor since it struck the auto market in 2009. For the preceding model year, the Blue Oval included a novel set of wheels that can be changed to a rocky bead lock design, the MyFord Touch infotainment system of Ford and HID headlights.
2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Suspension
The systematically re-designed suspension of the new 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor features 13.4 inches of working wheel travel in the back and 11.2 inches in the front as well as industry-elite internal bypass shock absorbers. These shock absorbers feature high-altitude viable jet-style liquid and an interior bypass system to harden the shock absorber as it treks to put off bottoming out. 35-inch BFGoodrich all-land tires that have been tailored purposely for the new Raptor offer a bond to the ground, whereas an off road style adjusts the stability control, transmission and grip control to function efficiently in high-velocity off-road conditions.
2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Engine
The new 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is equipped with an 8-valve, SOHC 6.2-liter engine that offers a power output of 411 HP and a torque output of 434 lb-ft. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that delivers power to all four wheels of the vehicle and features a complete manual style that offers the driver absolute control over the selection of the gear. Downshifts are enabled at the lowest gear achievable as defined by the engine velocity and upshifts are not controlled at redline.
2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Mileage
Fuel saving is about what one would anticipate of a huge pickup with a large 8-valve, 6.2-liter engine. It offers a mileage of 11 mpg within the city and 16 mpg on the freeway in accordance with the Environmental Protection Agency. The new Raptor has a 930-lb load capacity and a 6,000-lb towing ability.
2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Exterior
Adjacent to the lifted suspension and outrageous wheels, a matchless grille, fender and hood vents and shady-plastic fender flares place the new Raptor separately from the standard F-150. An exterior package with matte black pronunciation graphics is accessible.
2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Interior
The 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor cabin of the new Raptor features a high grip, SVT-elite steering wheel with an orange rest on indicator, whereas an optional enunciation package includes brilliant orange trim on the dashboard, seats and doors. An LCD output monitor with the dimension of 4.2 inches is positioned between the gauges of the instrument board supplies information regarding the angle of the steering wheel and the vehicle on a grade at the time of off-road movements, and can show vehicle status information as well. Four pre-energetic auxiliary controls are incorporated to make the addition of extra lights easy, winches and additional aftermarket accessories.
