2009 Ford F-150 Raptor: SVT Lives!

October 31, 2008
Usually, Halloween is filled with grim visions and ghosts and Jamie Lee Curtis. Today, though, the DHL wagon stopped by TCC Blog central and dropped off a mysterious envelope marked "Confidential!" No candy, not so much as a fun-size Three Musketeers.

Other car blogs got similar packages--and maybe they didn't have to track down a Windows machine to upload their CD-embedded video clips to YouTube. (Be more Mac-friendly, world!) Now that we're live with the video, it's plain to see someone at Ford wants you to know that SVT is alive and well.

In the clip here, Ford's F-150 bounds and leaps over a dusty trail--easily, even though the intro says "Yes, it's 'stock.'" We're not sure what to make of that yet, but we're assuming more info will be coming in a future sealed envelope. Does it mean a full-fledged return of SVT starting with a truck, or is this it? What's the powertrain? When can we drive it?

Until then, savor this short clip:
