Thumbs up Spied! Ford F-150 SVT Raptor SuperCrew Crew Cab

In June, we told you that Ford was receiving requests for a crew-cab version of the 2010 F-150 SVT Raptor high-performance, off-road pickup (which we recently drove in the Anza-Borrego Desert).

Mark Grueber, Ford's marketing manager, said "We've had requests for a crew cab. We haven't made any decisions but there's some demand for it. Not everyone is going to use [the Raptor] for aggressive off-roading. It could be something similar to the four-door Wrangler."

Well, it looks like that decision has been made and it's a go for production, judging from this spy shot of a Raptor test truck with four full-size doors. Despite it's camo and the fake rear roof, you can't miss the Raptor's big 35-inch wheels and tires, massive lower front control arms and the unique mesh grille with "FORD" emblazoned across it. There's even an orange hash mark on the steering wheel to indicate top center.


Note the high ground clearance because the side steps/rock guards have been removed from this mule.

Hardcore off-road enthusiasts may have reservations about a 145-in. long-wheelbase Raptor that's certain to compromise desert-running and rock-crawling performance for extra interior space, but those with large families or the need to transfer crews of four or five adults into the wilderness are likely to appreciate it.

We think it will bow at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show for the 2011 model year with only the new 6.2-liter V-8 engine.

So pretty! Even though it is covered in camo. On a slightly related note, I've seen a full camo'd SUV/Crossover that looks similar to the Edge, but with more of the new Fusion headlights. It's been driving down the road right by the Ford Proving Grounds for the past 2 days, so I'm assuming it's a Ford. Hard to tell exactly what it is but it looks pretty slick.

if they are willing to make the Raptor in a SuperCrew.....i think they should also then offer the 6.5ft bed on the SuperCab....i don't really like the short bed on the current raptor...i understand the original reason for it was for the short wheel base....but now it seems like they don't care....
