F-150 SVT Raptor SE-07

Nope, that’s not a typo – the title does indeed say Ford EcoBeast. The Blue Oval company has apparently registered such a name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, as discovered by Motrolix.

Little else is known other than just that, so what Ford has in mind for that beast of a moniker remains to be seen. We wouldn’t blame anyone should they choose to put their money on the next SVT Raptor wearing said nameplate – prototypes of the next-gen Baja-esque truck have been spotted blasting about, after all.

Whatever the situation may pan out to be, we’ll be keeping our fingers firmly crossed for an EcoBeast to make its debut at the upcoming 2015 Detroit motor show. Whether or not it appears on the next Raptor or a no-holds-barred Mustang variant, well, that’s another (good) issue altogether.
