No surprise here. Ford has officially confirmed that a four-door SuperCrew version of the F-150 SVT Raptor super off-roader will be available for 2011. It's Ford's response to buyer requests for a truck that's roomier than today's SuperCab model.
Ford hopes that a crew-cab Raptor will add to the slightly unexpected sales success of the current truck. More than 7,000 orders have been placed for existing Raptors, and the average time a Raptor spends on a dealer lot before it sells is only six days, according to Mark Grueber, Ford's marketing manager for the F-150.
The extra weight that the Raptor SuperCrew carries over the short-wheelbase SuperCab configuration requires a stout motor, so it will only be available with the new 6.2-liter V-8 that's rated at 411 horsepower and 434 pounds-feet of torque.
Pricing and production dates haven't been announced yet, but the Raptor lineup will add silver as a new color choice. We also expect it to receive at least one significant interior enhancement, too.
