With summer fully underway, many of us are hitting the road for some well deserved fun in the sun. While we may assume most of those trips will take place on major highways, you can never be so sure where your journey will lead you. The 2013 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor has you covered should you decide to take the road less traveled. The 2013 Raptor is packed with enough features to make your head spin. Everything from its front grille-mounted camera to voice navigation is sure to turn your ordinary road trip into a full-blown adventure.
The Raptor comes exclusively with a 6.2-liter V8 engine, producing best-in-class 411 horsepower and 434 lb.-ft. of torque. Aggressive all-terrain tires paired with an exclusive beadlock wheel system allow for easy travel on even the most complicated terrain while maintaining safe maneuverability on the road. That’s because the beadlock wheels secure the edges of the tire to the wheel so the tire is less likely to roll off the rim if it's aired down to very low pressure, providing extra grip on the trail. Internal-bypass FOX Racking Shox dampers also contribute to the Raptor’s impressive off-road capabilities.
While the Raptor may be rugged on the outside, the inside is anything but. Leather- and cloth-trimmed seats and steering wheel both come standard as well as a power, six-way adjustable driver’s seat. The Raptor is also equipped with Ford’s MyFord Touch infotainment system, offering hands-free voice-activated control of both the driver’s cell phone and the truck’s audio system. Additionally, both front and rear mounted cameras allow for improved visibility wherever you may end up. The front grille-mounted camera even has the ability to clean itself of mud and debris. The Raptor is available in Race Red, Blue Flame Metallic, Tuxedo Black Metallic, Ingot Silver Metallic, Oxford White and a new Raptor-exclusive color for 2013, desert camouflage-inspired Terrain. The 2013 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor sets the standard for luxurious off-road performers. Whatever you decide for your next road trip, the Raptor will get you there safely and comfortably.
