Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Production Increasing

Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Production Increasing

FLUSHING, Mich.- Among truck drivers and fans, the Ford Raptor is definitely the toughest truck on the block. But with limited quantities, demand for the Raptor is heightened. However, recent good news from Ford reveals that to meet that demand, production of the Ford F-150 SVT Raptor will increase!

While Ford Motor Company's production lines pump out hundreds of thousands of regular F-150 trucks each year, production of the SVT Raptor is much slower. When Ford began producing the Raptor in 2009, those same production lines were only creating two Raptor trucks per hour! Since then production has slightly increased to 3 trucks per hour, but with increasing demand, it's still not cutting it. The good news is that Ford just announced that they are working with suppliers to further increase Ford F-150 SVT Raptor production to 5 trucks each hour within the next 8-10 weeks!

With record high sales up 14% over the past 10 months, it's apparent that buyers can't get enough of the SVT Raptor, which can be priced as high as $60,000. It may come as a surprise to you, though, that the Raptor truck began as an experiment for Ford. But after selling 13,000 Raptors last year, and projections to sell even more than that this year, it looks like the experiment went right!

Ford has announced that they are working towards producing more SVT Raptor trucks, but that doesn't mean they will be sitting on dealer lots any longer. The Ford F-150 Raptor is one of Ford's fastest turning vehicles, spending just 15 days on the lot compared to the 60-day industry average! So if you're dreaming of a Ford SVT Raptor as your next vehicle, don't waste another minute!
