Ford has hit a home run with the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition. It may even turn out to be a "Grand Slam". Since its introduction in 2010, the Ford F-150 off road pickup has been a top performer on American highways, more so in when unleashed on any terrain.
This special edition is offered in 2 rugged and bright colors, Tuxedo Black Metallic or Ruby Red Metallic. Inside, the brick red and black seats, highlighted with a honeycomb pattern is perfect for both exterior hues. The graphics on the side of the bed is an unexpected and perfect touch.

Engine & Performance
This Special Edition comes with plenty of power with the 6.2 liter, V8 generating 411 horsepower engine. This 4 wheel drive pickup can move from 0-60 in just a tenth of a second over 7 seconds, not bad for a vehicle of this size.
Once you get past admiring the paint job of the F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition, you'll notice the high intensity discharge (HID) headlamps. In between is a large flat black mesh-like grille that announces that this beast is a creation of "FORD", prominently displayed in its center.
Moving to the side and once again having already taken notice of graphics, your eyes will most likely be drawn to the huge all terrain tires. The wheels feature Ford's exclusive bead-lock capability to improve traction. With the Ruby Red paint job the black wheel fenders highlight the trucks strong profile.
The inside of the SVT Raptor Special Edition presents a play with depth perception created by the black and red color scheme mentioned earlier. The matte gray applications on the door panels and center console add a touch of luxury.
This vehicle affords you 10 way power seating with memory settings, a power tilt and telescoping steering wheel and a Sony audio setup including an HD radio. If this monster will fit in your garage, it even has a universal garage door opener.
