Ford F-150 SVT Raptor orders exceeding company’s expectations

Ford is seeing tremendous feedback on the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor, as they have received over 5,500 orders for the new car; a number that far outpaces original projections. Ford produced more 5.4L V8 models than originally anticipated, and has opened ordering to the monstrous 6.2L V8. The flexibility inherent in building the truck on the F-150 platform has allowed Ford to keep up with demand.

Most Raptor sales have been in the Southwestern United States and Texas, but there is a large demand for this vehicle in other states like Tennessee, Michigan, Colorado, Ohio, and Georgia. The overwhelmingly favorite color has been Tuxedo Black; over 52% of orders were for that color. Molten Orange, Oxford White, and Blue Flame are also popular choices.

Pricing starts at $38,995 for the 5.4L and $41,995 for the 6.2L.
