Ford’s F-150 SVT Raptor Supercrew confirmed with 6.2L V8 only

05/14/2010, 5:40 PM BY MARK KLEIS

Following the success of the Supercab-only F-150 SVT Raptor, Ford has now added a four-door variant to product mix for 2011. Today, Ford’s director of product communications confirmed directly to Leftlane that the 2011 F-150 Raptor Supercrew will come exclusively with the new 6.2-liter V8 engine.

Following a series of spy shots and confirmation of the Raptor Supercrew by Ford in the past few months, the automaker has now officially announced that it will be supplying the four-door Raptor with the premium 6.2-liter V8 exclusively, while the Supercab variant will come with either Ford’s new 5.0-liter V8 or the current 5.4-liter V8 as the base engine, and 6.2-liter V8 as a premium option.

The 5.4-liter, 3-valve V8 found in the current F-150 trucks has a relatively anemic 320 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque compared to some of the premium offerings in the class. Ford’s 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor Supercab pickup received mostly glowing reviews and customer feedback, but the aging engine became the sore spot for the off-roading truck.

For 2011, Ford has added the 6.2-liter V8 with 411 horsepower and 434 lb-ft of torque as the optional engine for the Supercab Raptor, along with the new Supercab cab configuration for the Raptor package. Ford says that they decided to go with the 6.2-liter V8 as the standard engine for the Supercrew to help offset the large size and added weight in an effort to keep the truck viable as a high-performance desert runner.
