2011 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor to Get 6.2-Liter-Only SuperCrew Variant

May 14, 2010

The SuperCrew version of the 2011 SVT Raptor was, for many, an inevitable arrival, and Ford confirmed today it will only be available with the 411-horsepower 6.2-liter V-8 engine. The same engine is also available in the standard Raptor (pictured), as is a 320-horsepower 5.4-liter Triton V-8.

SuperCrew variants will not have that choice, but the bigger engine is likely the only thing anyone looking for the raw offroad capability and menacing look of the SVT Raptor F-150 would choose anyway. The big iron-block V-8 is based on the same mill that powers the 2011 Super Duty line, with the wick turned up a bit for the more aggressive Raptor. It's expected to be paired with the same six-speed automatic that comes with the regular Raptor when equipped with the bigger engine.

Pricing and availability for the 2011 F-150 SVT Raptor SuperCrew hasn't been announced yet, so we'll have to wait and see how much of a premium Ford wants for the extra cab space and big-engine-only configuration. We'd expect it to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $45,000, however, as the Raptor SuperCab currently starts at $41,995.
