2011 Ford SVT F-150 Raptor Supercab spied…

In June, we told you that Ford was receiving requests for a crew-cab version of the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor high-performance, off-road pickup (which we recently drove in the Anza-Borrego Desert).

Mark Grueber, Ford’s marketing manager, said “We’ve had requests for a crew cab. We haven’t made any decisions but there’s some demand for it. Not everyone is going to use [the Raptor] for aggressive off-roading. It could be something similar to the four-door Wrangler.”

Well, it looks like that decision has been made and it’s a go for production, judging from this spy shot of a Raptor test truck with four full-size doors. Despite it’s camo and the fake rear roof, you can’t miss the Raptor’s big 35-inch wheels and tires, massive lower front control arms and the unique mesh grille with “FORD” emblazoned across it. There’s even an orange hash mark on the steering wheel to indicate top center.

Hardcore off-road enthusiasts may have reservations about a 145-in. long-wheelbase Raptor that’s certain to compromise desert-running and rock-crawling performance for extra interior space, but those with large families or the need to transfer crews of four or five adults into the wilderness are likely to appreciate it.

We think it will bow at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show for the 2011 model year with only the new 6.2 litre V8 engine.

  3. Yeah, perhaps the person that left the first post should get a dictionary and look up the word “picture” versus “pitcher.”


  4. FORD YOUR TRUCKS ARE AWESOME! I LOVE YOUR TRUCKS!


  5. Looks like a raptor F150 crew cab…! nice


  6. If Ford comes out with a F150 Raptor Supercrew, white in color and no splash graphics I am buying one ….


  7. Any one know when the Supercrew Raptor will be ready to order? I’m ready!!


  8. Looks great. I agree, if this thing doesn’t come in ridiculous color choices with silly graphics on it, I am going to get one. I think Ford has the potential to continue the greatness with vehicles like this one. Also, they need to remember one of the most important rules; listen to the people! If they really want to make something cool, make an suv.


  9. Does anyone know how difficult parts will be to get for the Raptor in the future?


  10. Personally I think that they’d be pretty cheap as they are aftermarket parts anyways, but I’d ask your local Ford service department for more details…
