2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor: Yes, That's What It's Called

June 28, 2011

In the midst of loading up the Raptor yesterday a guy came up to me and asked if the truck was really called the "Raptor." I confirmed that yes, the Raptor name was not a figment of my imagination, one that convinced me to have a detailed badge made just to satisfy my fleeting whim.

He just sort of shrugged his shoulders and said, "hmm...that's kind of cool."

And you know what? He was right. Raptor is a pretty cool name for this truck. There aren't very many cool car or truck names left anymore, so I'm glad that SVT decided to give this truck a proper title. Would be nice to see some luxury cars take the same tack instead of the constant stream of alphanumeric soup we get now.
