2011 Ford Raptor Review

Updated on March 14, 2011

The 2011 Ford Raptor offers a huge step up from the base model of the Ford F-150, in an attractive exterior package that is eye-catching to both avid Ford fans and Chevy-lovers alike. Paint splashes on the outside of the bed of the truck, standard fender flares, more curved edges, and a custom grille on the Ford Raptor are guaranteed to turn heads at every corner. In addition, 2011 models of the upgraded F-150 are also available in many custom colors.

The 2011 Ford Raptor also has an added Super Crew cab option that was not available on previous models of the F-150, allowing for more room and a more comfortable back seat ride. The Raptor can carry up to five passengers, but despite its sporty look, the truck is still quite the workhorse. Most standard models of the 2011 Ford Raptor can tow up to 8000 pounds without additional equipment. Other optional towing packages are also available, as well as a selection of trim packages that turn this standard pick-up truck into a sporty dream machine.

The off-road suspension of the Raptor is boosted even further by the addition of standard 35 inch BF Goodrich all-terrain tires. The SVT model of the Raptor is also a full 7 inches wider than the base F-150, further stabilized for off-road use by an 11.2 inch front and 12.1 inch rear suspension system. The 36 gallon fuel tank means that off-road drivers can get even further away from modern conveniences and fueling stations without having to worry about running out of gas. Despite the truck’s revved up off-road features, it still offers a smooth ride on the highway and in the city. 

While the 6.2 liter V-8 engine was optional on previous models of the Ford F-150, it is now standard on the 2011 Ford Raptor. This allows for an output of 411 horsepower with 434 pounds of torque-a rather impressive feat for any midsize truck on the market. In addition to the new graphics and paint schemes, upgraded features for the 2011 Ford Raptor include a perimeter alarm, express up and down power windows, a center headrest, telescoping steering wheel adjustments, an on-board 110 volt AC outlet, and an integrated spotter mirror for backing up.

While the power and performance of the 2011 Ford Raptor are the greatest aspect of the overall value of the vehicle, it is the updated styling of the truck that has struck a nerve with most buyers. So far, no other trucks on the market have offered this kind of styling at an affordable price. A regular cab 2WD 2011 Ford Raptor starts at $23,990, while the Super Crew 4WD models can exceed $35,000, depending upon options purchased.
