Ford F-150 Raptor SVT 2011
So you are thinking about getting a F-150 SVT Raptor 2011? Here is your quick and
easy guide to picking the right Raptor for you. Basically you have only three
major decisions: First you decide cab size, second you decide
what extra options you want to pay for, and third you decide what color you want.
Easy as that! (MSRP prices listed in red below.)
The standard features on the Raptor include the best engine and important features.
The additional options may make the ride a little more comfortable and convenient,
but it will not make the truck more drivable or capable. (See all F-150 Raptor SVT 2011
F-150 SVT Raptor Standard - $42,525.00
As mentioned above, the most 'basic' F-150 SVT Rapor has everything you need to enjoy on-road and off-road driving.
As you can see from the key standard options below, Ford did a great job including all the essentials in
the standard Raptor.
Engine: It comes standard with a 6.2L engine, 4.10 Electronic Locking Rear Axle, 6 speed Automatic,
and the exciting new SelectShift.
Electronics: All the electronics you would expect: power locks, keyless entry, power windows,
illuminated entry, AM/FM Stereo, and Sirius Satelitte radio. It also has other standard options that
you may not have expected, such as SYNC for your cell phone and other bluetooth devices, keypad lock, and
Features: Also standard is the trailer tow package with class IV hitch receiver,
7-pin wiring harness, upgraded radiator, auxiliary transmission oil cooler, steel plate protection
for off-roading, tubular running boards, Electronic Shift-on-the-fly, and
Hill Descent Control.
Crewcab - $2,765.00
This will provide a lot more room in the back for the kids and
add a foot to the length of the truck. Although, Ford says that 80 percent of all
Raptors that have been ordered so far in 2011 are crewcabs, we think the supercab is way cooler.

Raptor Luxury Package - $2,180.00
This adds more power adjustments to the front seats, driver memory seat,
dual-zone temperature control, Sony premium audio system, heated side mirrors with
memory and remote start system. This may be a nice option if you live in a colder climate
or park your truck outside at night. This option is also mandatory if you want the
Navigation option below.
Navigation System - $2,495.00
Navigation system with other cool features such as DVD when parked and
integrated stereo. Note: it requires Raptor Luxury package mentioned above.
Raptor Plus Package - $595.00
Includes rear view camera and integrated trailer brake controller.
If you do not choose Navigation package below, then the camera
view will display on the rear view mirror, instead of on the screen.
This is obviously a good option if you plan on towing. You'll have more control, since you will
be able to see the boat or trailer or whatever you are backing up to.
Moonroof - $995.00
Some people like a moonroof, others find it annoying. Your choice. We offer no opinion.
Your color options are: Blue, Black, silver, White, and Molten Orange.
(The Molten orange adds $495.00
to the price of the Raptor.)
You can also pay more for hood graphics, exterior graphics, access colors, etc.
In addition, you can add a tailgate step and stowable bed extention.
We don't find these options necessary for off-roading or appropriate for
a Raptor and are therefore not mentioned here.
If you are on a budget and don't want to spend too much money on this toy get the basic. It has
all the Raptor off-road capabilities and the luxury feeling. If you want additional options, we would
add them in the following order: Raptor Luxury package, Navigation system, Raptor plus package, and
