The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is an off-road variant of the twelfth generation Ford F-150 pickup truck.
The Ford F-Series was first introduced in 1948 as a replacement for a previous pickup model line based on car platforms.
The F-150 SVT Raptor is part of the twelfth generation of Ford F-Series Pickup trucks. The 12th generation entered production in 2008 after being revealed at the 2008 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.
The F-Series was initially available with a manual transmission but was dropped in 2009. The SVT Raptor model was made available in late 2009 with a 5.4L or 6.2L V8 engine option as well as a 6-speed automatic as standard.
Production of the F-150 SVT Raptor ended in 2014 and it is planned to be succeded by a new F-150 Raptor, which is based on the thirteenth generation F-150.
Need for Speed: World
The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor was made available in Need for Speed: World on November 9th, 2012 as a Class C vehicle.
Contrary to its size, the SVT Raptor has class-typical acceleration. Its rear part is prone to swinging out whilst turning, which can negatively affect the car's cornering attributes in low-speed corners.
However, the SVT Raptor does feel responsive at high speeds and has a powerful nitrous boost. Top speed is 184 mph (297 km/h) and 199 mph (320 km/h) with nitrous applied.
In pursuit-based events, the SVT Raptor is capable of ramming police vehicles effectively, given it is driven at a high speed, although it is still not as effective as the Ford Crown Victoria, despite Raptor's heavier mass.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)
The Ford F-150 SVT Raptor is featured in the E3 reveal trailer of Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012).
It was featured as an early unlock in multiplayer in the pre-order Power Pack. The pack includes an exclusive Satin Black livery, Reinforced Chassis and Powershot Nitrous for the Raptor.
The best traits of the SVT Raptor are toughness and off-road performance. It is the only vehicle in the game capable of withstanding high-speed collisions with traffic cars and Ford Police Interceptor Utility, making the SVT Raptor the most durable car in the game. The Range Rover Evoque is less tough than the SVT Raptor, but possesses better racing performance.
It is less effective in race events due to its high weight, but this makes the SVT Raptor significantly less susceptible to takedowns than any other car in the game.
