Under the impressive hood of the 2016 Ford f-150 SVT Raptor is a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine which puts out more horsepower and torque with better fuel efficiency compared to last years 6.2-Liter V8 engine. A 10-speed automatic transmission is a step up from last year’s 6-speed transmission. Combined, both the new engine and transmission offer more outdoor terrain option capability than before.

The new model comes with an all-new exterior – a full strength military grade steel frame with a lighter weight aluminum-alloy body. Compared to previous models this exterior is more than five hundred pounds lighter despite the frame being almost six inches wider. This larger frame will allow for greater off-road stability, and with new LED lighting the truck will stand out even when the sunlight goes down.

With new custom designed suspension bits, BFGoodrich All Terrain KO2 tires, and larger Fox Racing Shocks, along with a better suspension system and onboard management technology the 2016 Ford f-150 SVT Raptor is ready for any off-roading challenges you wish to put it through. The new management technology includes a Terrain Management system with optional settings for normal driving, street driving, all-weather mode for inclement weather driving, mud and sand driving, Baja mode, and rock mode.
