With sales for the first quarter of 2013 up by 14 percent over a record 2012 figure that topped 13,000 units, the SVT Raptor continues on a serious roll. To help ensure it maintains that momentum in the year ahead, Ford announced that a new 2014 F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition will be arriving in dealer showrooms this fall. Spun from the Raptor's existing Luxury Package, this new Special Edition brings no mechanical changes but does give Ford's ultimate on/off-road rager several cosmetic tweaks that differentiate it from the already high-profile baseline Raptor.

Packing a 411-horsepower/6.2-liter V8, 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission and a stunningly capable all-terrain 4-wheel-drive system with FOX Racing Shox dampers, the 2014 Raptor Special Edition will be available in two exterior colors, Tuxedo Black Metallic and a new Special Edition-exclusive Ruby Red Metallic. Beyond new box-side graphics, the Special Edition boasts a custom finish on its beadlock-capable wheels.
Inside, the well-appointed cabin gets a similar upgrading that brings new Brick Red seat bolsters with black inserts and cloth honeycomb highlights, bespoke door panel appliqué accents, and unique metallic finishes on the console and center stack. Pricing for the 2014 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Special Edition will be announced closer to its on-sale date.
