Details on SVT Raptor Microsite

Ford Motor Company just unveiled a micro site that's dedicated to the amazing, wild F-150. This SVT Raptor unit that was revealed at the SEMA show is a large bodied variant of the favorite pickup at Ford. The off-road hard core enthusiast unit available in a wild colors array and has some serious suspension parts.

The first website page highlights a few special Raptor features, like more powerful control lower arms, ready long race shock travel absorbers and venerable V8 3 valve engine of Ford that makes 390 lb-ft torque. Continuing browsing that site you'll see a photo gallery plus a video one that do a great job showing off this fabulous truck in action. There's a section letting you build even your own SVT Raptor model. One of the amazing, most interesting pieces of that micro site is the link page with off-road. There are diverse off-road parts carmakers as well as racing off-road organizations; the target is the hardcore racing off-road enthusiast.

Ford announce that this truck unit will be available having a bigger V8 400 HP in 2010; they didn't mention the cost. 'We wanted to ensure the site is true to what Raptor is, emphasizing it as different and unique' said Eric Peterson, Truck and SUV communications manager at Ford. 'Delivering Raptor’s unique durability and performance is something only Ford can do, staying true to both our tough truck and racing heritage. We wanted to make that clear through the site'.

'There are not a lot of pristine photos. People will see mud and dirt on it, doing the things only the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor can do' affirmed Peterson. 'Most websites have beauty shots, but we show how the truck is actually used'.
