Ford F-150 SVT Raptor SuperCrew
Ford F-150 SVT Raptor SuperCrew
Ford calls it the first-ever high-speed off-road performance truck -- thereby creating a product segment with a population of one. Tested on a 62-mile loop in the California desert, the Raptor loves the out-of-doors and sports a camera mounted in its front grille to help drivers navigate rugged terrain. The camera conveniently displaces the Ford Blue Oval on this three-ton monster -- seven inches wider than a standard F-150 and two inches higher. Prices start around $45,000, but factor in fuel costs if you're thinking of buying one: The Raptor is rated at a gas-guzzling 11 mpg city/14 mpg highway.
