2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: So long, 5.4.
August 11, 2010
See that, that's the mighty 411-horsepower 6.2-liter V8 we paid some $3,000 to get in our Raptor. Straightline scooped the Universe -- which we think pretty much covers evreything -- and found that with today's announcement that the 5.4-liter V8 is gone, replaced by an Ecoboost V6 and a 5.0-liter V8, didn't quite include the Raptor. No 5.0-liter will be offered on the SVT product, nor are there plans to adopt the Ecoboost for this application.
No word on a price increase for the base model, but we'd have to assume yes.
