2016 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor made its debut in the Detroit Auto Show 2015 and visibly impressed the onlookers. It just does not only look like a monster that can withstand all sorts of terrains but is also fitted with matching aspects to play the anticipated role.
Exterior and Interior of 2016 Ford F-150
The body is framed in very strong steel with some parts made of aluminum. Despite the use of aluminum in some places, its durability and strength have not received any blow. In fact, this feature has made it comparatively light-weight than the present model – actually 500 pounds lighter. The hood is very muscular creating a lot of confidence for its performance just as the 21-inch alloy wheels do. Width-wise, it is 6 inches bigger which although gives it a meaner look but renders it a lot of stability that you will feel when driving at an awesome speed. Furthermore, the LED lighting makes it very usable even after darkness has fallen.
The interior has been designed keeping in mind the comfort required while driving for long ranges. The materials used for the seats are quality leather and the seating is very comfy. A lot of space has been provided so that sitting for a long time in the cabin does not prove taxing. Apart from that there is a Costs Audio, USB port, and modern technology speakers for entertainment.
