Ford Adds 411-hp V-8, FR Raptor XT Baja Racer to F-150 SVT Raptor Line

Follow Nelson

There's no doubt that the 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor pickup is one serious piece of off-road machinery. But for some, it's still not quite serious enough. So Ford has upped the ante at this year's SEMA show, revealing a new 6.2-liter V-8 and the FR Raptor XT, both of which will join the lineup.

The 6.2-liter V-8 puts out a potent 411 horsepower and 434 pound-feet of torque, making it the most powerful half-ton pickup available. The 320-horsepower, 5.4-liter Triton V-8 initially slotted into the truck will still be available, too. The upgrade to the 6.2-liter engine will add $3,000 to the trucks price, bringing the total to $41,995.

For the truly bonkers--or the amateur/semi-pro offroad racer--Ford is also offering 50 units of the FR Raptor XT. The FR stands for Ford Racing, and the Raptor XT is a near-copy of the same truck--the F-150 SVT Raptor R, pictured in the gallery above--that completed the Baja offroad race, but with the addition of creature comforts like airconditioning and a full interior.

The Raptor XT also gets a beefier 500-horsepower (estimated) 6.2-liter V-8 engine, six-speed auto, 4.56 gear set, front and rear e-lockers, a built-in chromoly rollcage, skid plating, five-point harness, beadlock wheels and tires, 15-inch front and 18-inch rear suspension travel, and, of course, a unique appearance package with a tubular front and rear bumper with integral lighting.

The FR Raptor XT will cost $99,950, is not street legal, and will only see 50 units built. Production and delivery dates haven't yet been announced.

    Bad stuff?

  2. As is normally done when V8 engines are shared cars and trucks,... this motor should have slightly less torque and more hp in the mustang. say maybe 420 hp and 415 lb. ft of torque? whatever it is it'll make the mustang gt the out and out leader of it's segment.
