F-150 SVT Raptor SE-02
Ford has revealed the 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition, which adds new touches to the Raptor’s existing Luxury Package, including a Ruby Red Metallic exterior colour and box-side graphics. The Raptor Special Edition is also available in Tuxedo Black Metallic.

Interior upgrades include Brick Red seat bolsters with black inserts and cloth honeycomb highlights, console top finish panel, and centre stack and door panel appliqué accents. In the US, the 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition goes on sale in the fall of 2013.

“Raptor owners are looking for a high-performing, uncompromising off-road pickup truck with the features and luxuries found in today’s premium trucks. Since its launch in 2009, we’ve continually moved Raptor forward in capability and design, and the 2014 Special Edition is the best Raptor yet,” said Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager.

The 6.2 litre V8 monster truck that you can buy of the shelf has found an enviable niche in full-size pickups. SVT Raptor sales are up 14% in 2013, with five out of the past six months seeing record sales. More than 13,000 Raptors were sold in 2012.

I’m surprised we haven’t seen any Ford Rangers running around with a DIY Raptor facelift yet…
