2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: White Faces Gone For '11

November 18, 2010


I came across a 2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor a couple days ago and noticed that the gauge cluster had been updated. The white-face gauges are gone, replaced by regular color gauges. I'm a little disappointed in that; white-face gauges have been a SVT trademark going back, at least as my memory goes, to the SVT Contour.

On the plus side, though, the F-150's new-for-2011 cluster-mounted LCD display screen (photographed below) looks great. I couldn't turn it on for the photo, but it's customizable and high resolution (no more Ford blue dot-matrix!). There's also an in-gear indicator, which our Raptor lacks.

Other 2011 Raptor changes include the 6.2-liter V8 being standard, the availability of a Raptor crew cab, manual shift control for the transmission (also noticably lacking on our truck), a few more extra standard features and a new optional matte black hood graphic.
